Steve Berry is the thinking man's Dan Brown. I was immediately impressed after reading The Romanov Prophecy, and The Third Secret. The Templar Legacy does not disappoint. If you enjoyed The DaVinci Code you will appreciate this novel all the more.

Berry mixes a decent understanding of folkore and history in this fast paced quest for the real Templar Treasure." He even takes a decent pot shot at all the conspiratroialists and others who have made fortunes off a well-documented hoax.

The book's idea of "The Great Device," and what it was is based on speculation that has goes back at least 2 or more centuries, and it has nothing to do with Mary Magdelene or the supposed Holy Grail, which was nothing more that Christianized versions of pre-Christian European Myths - the nonsense about san graal meaning royal bloodline not withstanding.

Great Fiction writing!!!!!!
