I found this hard to get into. It took far too long for the time travelling for me and I got a little bored waiting for it to happen. The elements of romance, time travel and historical fiction just didn't blend well for me. I think sadly this one just wasnt for me.

The year is 1307 & the Templar order in France is under attack. By none other than king Philipp IV. The goal is to get to the "Head of Wisdom", a mystical object that is said to contain enough power to rule the world. But the Templars are not quitting the fight. Templar Knight Gero has been sent on a secret mission to obtain the "Head of Wisdom" and make sure it doesn't fall into the wrong hands. And then the unthinkable happens. Gero and his squire Matthaus have been transported through tim ...more

As a lover of all things Templar, this was an obvious choice for a read. If you are a lover of Timeline by Michael Crichton, Outlander by Diana Gabaldon or anything Templar (or any combination of the above, like myself - I am all three!) this is a MUST READ! I was continuously astonished by the level of intricacy in research the author had done to make this book period appropriate. The descriptions were lush and inviting, and I found myself hoping that there were more books by her available in E ...more

This is a book that I could not put down. It involved history and the Templar's and romance which covered all boxes for me. The story sucks you in right from page one. I ended up reading the whole book over the course of two days because I couldn't put the book down. You immediately connect to the not only Gero (the main hero of this story) but the main little group of templates around him. You end up rooting for them and wishing for something to come along and help them out especially, for thos ...more

Wanted to like it (due to my long fascination with the Templars) but it really just lost me.

Mystery of the Templars by Martina Andre is an epic tale set in the early 14th century. A young Templar knight is given a special secret mission to save an important Templar artifact at the time Prince Phillip IV is rounding up and annihilating all the Templars his soldiers can find. There are a few fantastical twists added to the story, including time travel, that make it even more interesting. I found the story fascinating and had a hard time putting it down.
This is the first book by this aut

Overall I thought Martina André's novel, Mystery of the Templars was unique. When I originally read the plot synopsis I was intrigued but also a little hesitant. I am a fan of historical fiction, but not a huge romance or time travel novel reader. But I think Martina was able to blend these all very well and write a very hard to put down novel. At times the romance was a little much for me, and some of the sci-fi time travel aspects seemed a little uncharacteristic compared to the rest of the no ...more

Follow the journeys of Gero and the quest he is on to save the Templar Knights. While we watch the tragedy of the extermination of Templars about to unfold, we start out in the prisons of France. Torture is being used on the knights, as they seek information about the order, and those who are in leadership positions. One item holds special significance, and one knight is in a position to spill its secrets, but he has placed conditions - which will be met once the other knight, and his family are ...more

I am voluntarily submitting my honest review after receiving an ARC of this ebook via NetGalley,

In the interest of full disclosure, I must admit that I am fascinated by all things Templar, so I began this book with high expectations. Mystery of the Templars did not disappoint. This book features time travel, so some suspension of belief is required, but it is married with science to such an extent as to render it palatable to those unlikely to believe in the magic usually associated with the tim

This story is about the journey of Gero, a Templar Knight on a special mission as the Templars all over are being destroyed. When he lands in modern-day Europe, he must adjust to modern time with the assistance of Hannah. They must uncover the truth of what’s happened and try to get back to his time and save his fellow knights.
This was a pretty good story. After watching Knightfall on the History channel, this title pulled my attention quickly. I haven’t read too many time travel stories so I wa

This book is a bit of a slow read. The premise is interesting and so are the character sketches. It reminds me a bit of Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series with the time travel and the general time period, but not quite a satisfying read as those books were.
