A compelling drama, and at times visceral. Nice character development, and the pace of the story is well done.

Captivating. Masterfully written, and a must read. Once engrossed, I couldn't put it down.

The novel spans the journey of Louis de Garonne, from his childhood as a passionate young man with dreams of becoming a Templar Knight through his lifetime. We follow Louis as he realizes his dream and comes to terms with the fact that the reality isn't what he envisioned. He struggles with the desire to fight for and to uphold what he always was taught was so sacred, with the reality of how those ideals become altered by human nature both good and deeply flawed. The story has it all, desire, loyalty, faith, jealousy and greed influencing decisions of life, death, war and love. Throughout the story you are challenged to lose the ability to see things as black and white. The characters are well developed and you often find their decisions unexpected but then understandable in the choice between what is expected of them and what is the truly the right path to take. The lessons learned are thought provoking and woven subtly with symbolism. Dixon brilliantly paints a picture that makes Louis's internal struggles very relevant to our times.
I was captivated and thoroughly enjoyed this book from beginning to end!
I found this a very interesting read with great battles, solid imagery and characters.
Historically brilliant it outlines complex religious, political and social events very well.
I'm not picky with typos ,there are a few, don't bother me none . Some folks will cringe occasionally, defiantly nothing grave though.
Highly recommend Jerusalem Falls!
