The first official Knightfall tie-in novel, charting the Templars' adventures after the Fall of Acre.
Following the Fall of Acre, Landry, Godfrey, and the other survivors of the siege flee in a sailboat across the Mediterranean. Drifting for weeks, they try to land on Cyprus only to run into a dangerous Mamluk detachment. Running dangerously low on supplies, they are forced to take to the seas once more.
Trying to land on the coastline of Turkey, they are ambushed by pirates and taken captive. Incarcerated on a remote island compound, Landry, Godfrey and the other Templars must plan their escape before all hope is lost.
What members say
I bought this book on the strength of the narrator James Langton who did a great job with the Hellequin series,and because I loved the author's Thieftaker series. I was not aware this was a follow up to a tv series but this was not a problem. The story pics up after the fall of Acre as a group of Templars and refugees flee the city, presumably the events of the tv series. As a result you are thrown into an established group but the author does a great job of quickly getting you to know them, I immediately felt an affinity for the characters and enjoyed a well written adventure. i look forward to more.
