The story of Peter Bartholemew and the Holy Lance at the siege of Antioch is a true one, at least inasmuch as there was a monk by that name who brandished something he claimed was the Holy Lance and thereby rallied the defenders to sally forth and defeat the besieging Muslim army. Despite its rallying effect, however, there were many, including the papal legate Adhemar of Le Puy, who doubted th... Read more of this blog post »

“If you’re looking for an historical adventure soaked in blood… Quest for the Holy Lance delivers…. Latham shows a welcome attention to complexities of the Crusader world and to the details of Templar life. A satisfying amount of blood is shed as Michael Fitz Alan and his Templar troops battle their way towards their goal. And the book offers a rousing conclusion, with the promise of more to come. Bring it on!”
