    As the burning city of Acre falls from the hands of the West in 1291, a young Templar knight, his mentor, and a handful of others escape to the sea carrying a mysterious chest. In present day Manhattan, four masked horsemen dressed as Templar Knights steal a strange device. In the aftermath, an FBI investigation is led by anti-terrorist specialist Sean Reilly. Soon, he and archaeologist Tess Chaykin are drawn into the dark, hidden history of the crusading knights.

    Though some of the things in this book were a bit unrealistic, it was a fun read kept my mind busy while I was stuck at work and traveling. If you're looking for something similar to DaVinci Code, this might be a good choice for you.

    Eragon and his dragon, Saphira, have just saved the rebel state from destruction by the mighty forces of King Galbatorix, cruel ruler of the Empire. Now Eragon must travel to Ellesmera, land of the elves, for further training in the skills of the Dragon Rider: magic and swordsmanship. Soon he is on the journey of a lifetime, his eyes open to awe-inspiring new places and people, his days filled with fresh adventure. But chaos and betrayal plague him at every turn, and nothing is what it seems.

    Overall

    After his first book, I was excited to download and listen to this second book in his triology. However, I was somewhat disappointed. This book seemed to be full of philisophical ramblings that really didn't help get the story anywhere. I anticipate the third book to be better but recommend reading this one only so you know what's going on in the third.
