They were known as the Poor Fellow-Soldiers of Christ and the Temple of Solomon
- or, more commonly, as the Knights Templar or the Order of the Temple. Among the most famous of the Western Christian military orders,
this fraternity existed for approximately 200 years during the Middle Ages, founded in the aftermath of the first Crusade in 1096. They were built around the concept of guaranteeing the safety of the many Christians who made the pilgrimage to Jerusalem after the city was conquered.
This final installment of Young's
Brethren series is set here, populated by bold and beautiful characters as only this writer could create. Knight Templar Will Campbell is brought back in this edition, and he once again promises his sword and his heart to England's King Edward.
All great characters must be tested and so, of course, is Campbell. Should he join his fellow warriors and fight for Scotland, or does he fight for the life of his own family?
There is adventure and gallantry and the passion of conviction that transports to a different time and a different place but with all the same problems, obstacles, and rewards any modern reader might encounter.
