    Anyone who writes reviews for a review site or their blog knows that feeling when you sit down to write and your fingers rest on the keys motionless You write a few words Erase them Try again Erase them It is a dance I am sure the writer of novels knows only too well, especially when things are not so straight forward, and reviewers who want to write about the books they read are no different It is a dance and I was in it when I sat down to write about Templar s Acre When a story, or in this cas [...]

    In this the final installment of the Templar mystery series, Mr Jecks takes us back to the event that heavily affected the later life of Sir Baldwin the final siege and fall of Acre in 1291 As readers of the series know, this event is brought up time and time again.A word of warning unlike the rest of the novels in this series, this entry is not a mystery It is a straight action adventure historical novel We first meet Baldwin, a young 16 yr old aboard ship bound for Acre with his determination [...]

    Michael Jecks once has produced a fantastic read in Templar s Acre This tale takes to Baldwin as a young man You read how he came to Acre and how he left Baldwin is tempered in the fire of the final days of Outreamer My question is what happened next that he joined the Templars I will miss Baldwin until Michael Jecks returns to him and Simon.

    I had a free copy for review I haven t read any of the Knights Templar mysteries, but this prequel to them not a mystery easily stood alone as historical fiction on the siege of Acre An open endedness, possibly a dissatisfaction with the end, might be the only time you notice it s attached to a series I found this a straightforward action story action from page one, and onwards with likeable characters I was glad to have the quiet nobility of the Leper Knight not a leper himself but in service w [...]

    I listened to the audio book whilst driving and had no idea until looking it up on that it was part of a long series.

    After writing 31 Knights Templar Adventures featuring Sir Baldwin de Furnhill and his sidekick, Simon Puttock, Michael Jecks has written a prequel to the series as a temporary, we hope farewell while he works on other endeavours which include his trilogy of Hundred Years War stories which began with Fields of Glory, published in 2014.Templar s Acre begins with Baldwin, a seasoned warrior of age 17, wounded and on board a ship escaping the over run city of Acre lost to the Muslims under Sultan al [...]

    This book is a prequel about Sir Baldwin de Furnshill s background before he became a Templar and a knight It is a historical novel, not a mystery, and is excellent I did not know much about the siege of Acre, the last city that the Crusaders held against the Muslims Jecks explained the background and set the scene for the fall of the city while moving the action along and introducing us to the various characters Baldwin meets when he arrives as a young man eager to help protect the city He is m [...]

    As this story is done, it is going to be the last of the Templar series for a while Jecks, Author s Note, 1 , I am glad to have most of the mysteries surrounding Baldwin answered, but what a brutal story I missed Simon s companionship, but enjoyed the companionships of Baldwin s first life, while they survived I can not say this book is enjoyable, by any means, as I am not muslim, I know the history, and there is little in which to enjoy With that said, Jecks crafted a well told story Baldwin s [...]

    I have enjoyed the series This prequel to the series will likely have me back for a re read with new eyes Jecks never fails as a story teller using the history for the backdrop of his tales 15 SEP 2013 I had to return to add this to the review The author, Jecks, has been interviewed today part one and I believe the few pages of interview will give insight to this author and why this and all of his titles are so good Here is the link to the interview newmobileme imagochron

    This prequel to the Templar novels mysteries was excellent It gave insight into Baldwin s life before he became a Templar, was exciting and interesting in its portrayal of the siege and fall of Acre.Hopefully we have not yet seen the last of Simon and Baldwin but meanwhile how about Baldwin s adventures on and after joining the Templars

    This is the 32nd of these books by Michael Jecks but the first chronologically The book is set around the siege of Acre in the late 13th century and follows fictional characters as the siege evolves There is a great deal of blood and thunder and a good yarn if you like that However the factual background is thinly drawn and I prefer a little of the politics and historical background.

    For those that know Michael Jecks medieval mystery series this is the backstory for the excellent Sir Baldwin.As you d expect it covers the fall of Acre in 1291 in great detail and if you like sieges you ll just love this one.Super stuff and 4.5 5.

    Well, this is the last of Michael Jecks Templar novels It will be interesting to see what he does now I ve enjoyed the run.

    Just couldn t get in to it Not for me.

    Not unenjoyable, but for a professionally published piece the editing leaves much to be desired.

    Good book but a little too much battle and too little mystery.
