Publisher's Summary

At last, the book more than a million fans are waiting for: the sequel to The Last Templar.

With its iconic title and unmistakable cover, Raymond Khoury's million-copy- selling The Last Templar remains one of the most memorable thriller publications of the last decade. Finally, after four long years, Khoury returns to the world of the Templars with The Templar Salvation, a sequel that's every bit as eye-popping and as gripping as its predecessor.

Constantinople, 1203: As the rapacious armies of the Fourth Crusade lay siege to the city, a secretive band of Templars infiltrate the imperial library. Their target: a cache of documents that must not be allowed to fall into the hands of the Doge of Venice. They escape with three heavy chests, filled with explosive secrets that these men will not live long enough to learn.

Vatican City, present day: FBI agent Sean Reilly infiltrates the Pope's massive Vatican Secret Archives of the Inquisition. No one but the Pope's trusted secondi get in - but Reilly has earned the Vatican's trust, a trust he has no choice but to violate. His love, Tess Chaykin, has been kidnapped; the key to her freedom lays in this underground tomb, in the form of a document known as the Fondo Templari, a secret history of the infamous Templars.

With his trademark blend of incendiary history and edge-of-your-seat suspense, Raymond Khoury's The Templar Salvation marks a triumphant return to the rich territory that launched his best-selling career.

A book that "jumped the shark"

I am well-read in this "Da Vinci Code"; "Angels and Demons"; Templar mystery type books.

I enjoyed this book, generally, except for two important things:

1. The narrator's voice did not fit the role of "Tess". He cannot do female.

2. Once the "things" (don't want to put spoilers here) are discovered and Tess gives her diatribe about why they are so important...well..that was the "jump the shark" moment for me.

Yes, it's fiction. I get it. However, it would be nice if Khoury knew more about worldviews, the tenets of the religions his writing likes to bash, the way science does not coordinate with "Tessa's" diatribe.

Until this, which is at the end, I did not feel the author had a hidden agenda. Just a good (not gripping but good) book ... until the diatribe and then Khoury showed his hand.

To bad about that, I think. His book would have been more enjoyable and closed with less "soapboxing" if he had been able to separate some of his, apparently, ill will towards organized religion and just, simple, basic good and enthralling writing.

Written for Children

This was impossible to listen to. After the first half the bad guy has guns and bombs that are inexhaustible. While on the run stealing cars he has supplies that would require heavy supply trucks. Suddenly I thought, this reminds me of "Christmas Story" when Ralphy is shooting the bad guys in stripes with his bb gun. Save your money and time , pick something else.

Not one of Khoury's best...

I've read and enjoyed just about all of Raymond Khoury's books...except Templar Salvation, this is definitely not one of his best audiobooks. The storyline seems to drag and it's too much of an effort to keep engaged in the story.
The readers voice is very distracting, I found myself keeping a running tally of the mis-pronounced words.

I'd pass on this book.

more of the same

This is the sequel to the Last Templar. Again, agent Sean Reilly is in a race against a terrorist to unravel another Templar secret that will reveal the location of unpublished gospels. The premise is that the contents of these gospel will contradict current Christian teachings and send the Christian world into chaos.

Reilly, and his girl friend, Tess chase the terrorist and clues to this lost Templar treasure. Much of the cleverness in following clues to solve the 700 year old puzzle are abandoned as modern day keepers of the secret simply blurt out what they know to Reilly for no apparent reason...

For my tastes, there was much, too much detail in the fight scenes..especially the final fight scene which I thought would never end. If you like these Templar Knight stories, you will likely enjoy this one but it does not really stand out in anyway over the Last Templar or similar stories by other authors (eg Steve Berry)

No Salvation Here

If you are looking for an alternative to Dan Brown's books, skip this one. Frankly, it was just plain silly. And, the narrator becomes most annoying after a while - his voice comes from his nose. Being used to John Lee and Simon Preeble's performances, I found this narrator's reading more of a distraction than attraction. I think even the Templars would be disappointed in this one!

I listen to audible whilst driving my truck. During the final fight, I was fully rooting for Reilly. I even honked my horn and fist pumped the air when he was done. great job!! 🤘🤘🤘🤘🍻

Hero is an idiot

How many times does it take for a hero to figure out that the villain is very tricky & must go? The hero kept saying that he couldn't take him out because he wanted to question the villain. No answers are worth a life, but the hero hasn't caught on to that. Somewhat good info on religious history, but weak plot.

Disappointed

The storyline was great but the obscenity was so prevalent that I can not recommend it.
