Better characters than DaVinci Code,
This review is from: The Heretic (Templar Chronicles Urban Fantasy Series #1) (Kindle Edition)
I enjoyed this book very much. The characters are well defined, the story is very good, and the writing is good. Although not as engaging a story as The DaVinci Code (but how many books of this type are), it is superior in character development. The writing in a few spots was weak, but overall, it also surpassed DaVinci code (which had clean, but perfectly sterile prose and mostly flat characters). As some have mentioned, this book could have benefited from some better editing, but I didn't find it seriously lacking in that department.
This book is worth picking up in part because it doesn't mess around with insignificant story details. It jumps right into the action and creates a credibly built world. At no point did I want to put it down. It was definitely worthy of being reissued. Down the road I'll check out the next book in the series.
