The story idea was okay but a bit confusing with the plot and numerous characters.
Catherine Fortin
The Order is up to its usual antics and so are Doc and his pals but this book left me waiting eagerly for the next book in the series!
Nan
I didn't worry about suspending my disbelief because I know just enough about those subjects to know I don't care to know more.

I randomly picked up "The Templar Legion" at a Wal-Mart a few years back. After reading through it I was hooked and dove head first into the world of John "Doc" Holliday. I quickly bought up the first four books in the series (Templar Legion is book five)and read them in chronological order. Each book is was engrossing, detailed, and adventurous, it left me wanting more. In fact, if I could give one flaw to the series, it is that the books are TOO engrossing to the point where I wait a year for the next installment to come out just to read it in a few days and play the waiting game again. The same thing happened to me here between "The Valley of the Templars" and "The Lost City of the Templars". Unfortunately I found myself a bit disappointed with this installment of the Templar series. The focus is mainly supposed to be fixed on Eddie and Doc, as it was in the last two books,with other good guys and bad buys mingling in the main story. There will be character offshoots here and there, as there were in the previous installments. I feel "The Lost City of the Templars" seriously deviated from that way of writing. I felt a lot of time was wasted on characters and arcs that did not matter. There were characters that countless portions of chapters were spent building up, only to be slaughtered later on without much fanfare. Also it is a bit late in the game to be introducing so many new characters. Will they have an impact on later books? The ends to many arcs in this book simply did not match the means. Doc and Eddie were just a part of the bunch as opposed to the main focus similar to previous installments. For me the greatest travesty of this book was the lack of insight into the next installment of the series that is usually at the end of each book.Read more ›

This was by far, the best written, though the shortest of the series. The pace was fast without a lot of rambling exposition. The transitions were swift and things moved with the blink of an eye. I enjoyed reading this story right until the end. I didn't worry about suspending my disbelief because I know just enough about those subjects to know I don't care to know more. It's just a story, not a historical document.

The writing was solid third-person though the author did a bit of head-hopping here and there, enough that I noticed, but not enough to jerk me out of the story. I found the editing fine, but not top-notch. I had to pause a few times over some words that were either misspelled or misplaced. Otherwise, the writing quality wasn't bad at all.

My big beef was the crummy ending. The payoff let me down. Maybe the author thought it had to be that way to make things more realistic, or maybe he just got tired of certain things. Maybe even fans told him to do something like that. I don't know, but I hated it. I may be in a minority but it ruined what could've been one of his best stories, with no bull to slog through. A right-to-the-point thriller that kept me glued to my seat, only to slap me in the face. I hope the next one (which I still anxiously await) does a better job.

Only recommended for those that like bittersweet endings.

The plot line is tight ,moves very quickly and piques my interest keeping me thoroughly engrossed to reach its conclusion . The only problem that I ,personally, found issue with was knowing which book follows which book. Paul Christopher is one of my favorite authors and is right in line next to James Rollins.

This is another fast Paul Christopher read. The Order is up to its usual antics and so are Doc and his pals but this book left me waiting eagerly for the next book in the series! Will start the other series by Christopher and see if it is as good as this one.

I've read all of Christopher's templar series to date and have been hooked by them. But this one may cause me to stop reading. the plot was all over the place and did not come to any conclusion. Many new characters were added and then dropped. The ending was really lousy. It was not only poor, but it left you hanging and was extremely abrupt with multiple story lines just stopping and not reaching any closure. I'll try one more, but if it continues this trend (which started a few books ago) I will drop Christopher from my favorites list. He had several excellent initial books - great characters that were revealed as we read, great story line for each book and the series, and an excellent style. I really ate them up! But now it seems like he is writing against a deadline and when the deadline comes, he just stops writing. Ugh!

This book is a very slow read, it takes forever to read. It's not that good either. I should sent it back for a refund. I only gave one star because someone spent a lot of time writing it.

I thought the book was very slow. The story was not very compelling. First I have read this author, so I cannot compare to his other books.
