about

Swedish author Jan Guillou follows up the highly acclaimed The Road to Jerusalem with the second book in his Knights Templar trilogy.

The Knight Templar follows Arn's adventures in the Holy Land, where he discovers that the infidel Saracens aren’t as brutish and uncivilised as he had been led to believe, and that in fact there is another, darker side to the teaching of the Cistercians.

Swedish-born journalist Jan Guillou has won several international awards, including the Prix France Culture. He is the creator of two of the most successful series ever published in Sweden—the Hamilton series and the Crusades Trilogy. His books have been translated into more than twenty languages.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent historical reading This is the second book of the trilogy. Alternating chapters tell the saga of Arn and his beloved separated for having loved one another by a jealous sister. Arn is sentenced to twenty years in service as a Templar knight where his exceptional combat skills and secular knowledge enable him to rise in rank and service earning him friends and enemies among both Christians and Moslems. His beloved endures a different conflict being subject to a vengeful and vindictive Abess. We'll worth reading the series

Editorial Reviews

?A great . . .beautifully constructed book. . . . Despite the intricate plot, The Road to Jerusalem is a surprisingly understated book overall. Skillfully written and translated, it?s detailed, but sparingly so. . . . [Guillou] has a remarkable grasp of the mind-set of the period and always puts the emphasis where it would be for the people involved at that time, rather than ours. Some readers may find that disorienting, but a capacity for disturbing readers? assumptions is even more a hallmark of good historical fiction than the inclusion of the Knights Templar.? (Diana Gabaldon, Washington Post)
