But now two forces vying for the treasure have learned that it is not at all what they thought it was—and its true nature could change the modern world. Cotton Malone, one-time top operative for the U. Armed with vital clues to a series of centuries-old puzzles scattered across Europe, she means to crack a mystery that has tantalized scholars and fortune-hunters through the ages by finding the legendary cache of wealth and forbidden knowledge thought to have been lost forever when the order of the Knights Templar was exterminated in the fourteenth century. Competing for the historic prize— and desperate for the crucial information Stephanie possesses—is Raymond de Roquefort, a shadowy zealot with an army of assassins at his command.
I'm not sure how good a sequel will be, but I'll give one a shot some day. View all 4 comments. So fascinated by the amount of research that went into this. Really cool book, and I'm excited to follow Cotton on more adventures! I suppose this is what might be called a "thriller" however I have hesitated to put it on that shelf. I hesitate because there are very, very few thrills in the book.
I've hit a string of mediocre books lately. These are all books I've been looking forward to but once I got into them they were at best, "yawn-worthy". This one is that way. We start out on what has become well trodden ground since The Da Vinci Code. Again we're off on an adventure to track down the "real history" of things, in this I suppose this is what might be called a "thriller" however I have hesitated to put it on that shelf.
Again we're off on an adventure to track down the "real history" of things, in this case the Templars and their legacy treasure, books, writings, scrolls etc. It's synopsis leads a reader to believe he'll find a thrill ride.
Instead about a quarter of the way into the book the text bogs down into a lot of dry conversations. There's a second point of view where we get another really interesting setup, a fast moving escape and so on.
But the story quickly slides back into explanations and so on. The ending goes about where you think it will. This is the second book by this author I've picked up. I don't want to do a blanket assumption here but neither of the books has been overly burdened by original thinking. I forged through it, but I can't really recommend it.
Too bad. Their is a question many of you probably want answered. I'll answer it here under a spoiler warning. Peter left a book telling that all in the Gospels is a lie. How many more times will this ending be copied? Christianity is based on a lie.
Jesus died and was not resurrected. Okay there it is. Now I need a bath. View all 7 comments. Feb 29, Maurean rated it liked it. I enjoyed this tale; I have just recently 'discovered' Berry I read "The Third Secret" in August , but the mister has been enjoying him for some time now.. I enjoyed the story. Mystery, historical information, plenty of twist and turns, all added up to an entertaining read. View 2 comments. Jul 17, Josen rated it really liked it Shelves: Yes this type of storyline and pace is reminiscent of The DaVinci Code but again, I really like these kinds of books.
One part of the story is disputing the belief that Jesus Christ rose from the dead and the thought-provoking line: I, myself, was brought up Catholic so the thing about these types of stories is that you have to go into it with an open mind. Obviously the author does his research and a lot of the book is based on historical references. But you also have to realize that a lot is fiction……. It takes you all over the world.
Leave it at that. Jun 29, Jesse A rated it liked it Shelves: Dan Brown esque.

Interesting thriller with the seemingly sole intent of challenging pre conceived historical beliefs. Long spots of historical info dumps, which I found interesting but could bore some.
Entertaining at least. The Templar Legacy 1 Star This is my third attempt at reading this book and its time to call it quits. The main character is interesting enough and the plot has potential, but it moves along at a snails pace with excessive descriptions of the scenery villages, buildings, forests, gardens, etc. Enough is enough!

The Templar Legacy
Total load of garbage from the beginning of the book until the end. This book was not even worth the paper it was written on. View 1 comment. Our hero, Cotton, a special ops kind of guy, must come to the rescue of his former boss from the Justice Dept who seems to be in over her head. Before committing suicide, her husband had left notes on how to decipher an antique codex, the purpose of which is unclear.
However, she discovers she's not the only one participating i "Say it, preach it, shout it, but never, absolutely never, believe your own bullshit! However, she discovers she's not the only one participating in this treasure hunt, and the other folks like to play with guns. The story drifts back in time and we learn that the treasure has something to do with the vast financial resources of the ancient Templar Knights.
This treasure is not just a matter of wealth, but also it's a powerful secret, and one that some folks will stop at nothing to protect. If you're thinking the story sounds a bit like Da Vinci Code, you'd be correct. I'm cool with that. I liked Da Vinci Code.
Ok, yes like Da Vinci Code Templar Legacy grates against my religious sensitivities, but it's a "fiction" book so who cares. Get over it. But what I really didn't like is how the author takes an otherwise great storyline and over complicates it to the point where reading becomes tedious. I'm not into having to take notes while I'm reading an action novel, so that I can keep track of all the side stories. My little annoyances subsided toward the end of the book when the action began to pick up.
And I've enjoyed some of other books in the series, so hopefully this just wasn't one of Mr. Berry's best. Sep 12, Jenny rated it really liked it.
It has served us well, this myth of Christ. Fascinating, isn't it? Really, though, aside from both dealing with lost Templar treasure and the possible non-divinity of Christ, they're quiet different novels. I may have even enjoyed this one more than It has served us well, this myth of Christ. Berry tells the story cleanly with few unnecessary distractions, and the pacing is excellent.

The twists and turns of plot were only predictable in that they were legion; Berry kept me guessing almost all of the time, and I was always intrigued. All in all, a good read. What's really interesting for me, though, in all of these novels, is how much I find myself reflecting of my own religious beliefs.
I think I enjoy them even more because they do challenge established Christianity, and, consequently, my beliefs.
They make me think about things I often take for granted. I think that's partly why I'm drawn to them, and have read them all, despite their undeniable similarities. There is a fourth, a just-released novel called Labyrinth that I think I'll be checking out within the next few weeks. Apparently I can't get enough! Challenge away! Mar 14, Benjamin Thomas rated it really liked it Shelves: This is the first of the Cotton Malone series. I am certainly no biblical scholar but the book seemed to be well researched and real world mysteries are dealt with in a plausible way.
I do wish, though, that readers who are offended by anything that challenges their religious views would just avoid those novels in the first place rather than read them and then trash the book's viewpoint. I enjoyed lea This is the first of the Cotton Malone series. I enjoyed learning much more about the Templars and how they evolved through history.
I also liked the settings in Copenhagen and France, and having been to most of the locales described in the novel, found myself transported back to those places. The plot was intriguing and while I thought the overall mystery to be sufficiently compelling and well paced, I felt the dialogue was a bit stilted. I've noticed this with other Steve Berry novels as well. The one thing that I appreciated the most was that Cotton Malone, our protagonist, served as a great foil for the reader.
Just when I felt like saying, "That doesn't make sense," Cotton says, "That doesn't make sense. It was almost uncanny.
So, yes, I will definitely be reading more of the Cotton Malone series.

This was an enjoyable read. I liked it, I thought it was well written, it kept me in suspense, there were twists and turns, and it was interesting.
Although if you don't like fictional books that question the Bible or faith then this book is NOT for you! It's a very Dan Brown kind of book that I think is a bit I wavered between 3 and 4 stars for this one and settled on three. The book rehashes the same information over and over and over again.

But now two forces vying for the treasure have learned that it is not at all what they thought it was--and its true nature could change the modern world. Cotton Malone, one-time top operative for the U. Justice Department, is enjoying his quiet new life as an antiquarian book dealer in Copenhagen when an unexpected call to action reawakens his hair-trigger instincts--and plunges him back into the cloak-and-dagger world he thought he'd left behind.
It begins with a violent robbery attempt on Cotton's former supervisor, Stephanie Nelle, who' s far from home on a mission that has nothing to do with national security. Armed with vital clues to a series of centuries-old puzzles scattered across Europe, she means to crack a mystery that has tantalized scholars and fortune-hunters through the ages by finding the legendary cache of wealth and forbidden knowledge thought to have been lost forever when the order of the Knights Templar was exterminated in the fourteenth century.
