Danger lurks in the shadows and no one knows that better than those who have pledged themselves to keep the world safe from dark and increasingly deadly forces, the Knights Templar.

Left for dead in the wake of an attack by a fallen angel, Cade Williams now commands the Echo Team, one of six elite combat units in the Templar hierarchy. But Cade is no ordinary soldier; his encounter with the supernatural left him with a thirst for vengeance for the death of his wife, Gabrielle. That, and supernatural abilities of his own-- earning him the nickname the Heretic among his faith-driven brethren.

When a group of necromancers raid a Templar stronghold and steal a powerful relic, Cade and the Echo Team spring into action to prevent the unimaginable consequences. But the mission goes awry when Cade discovers that the power behind the necromancers is none other than the Adversary, the angel of darkness that tried to kill him years before. Will Cade sacrifice the mission, and possibly the lives of his men, for a final chance at vengeance?

The Heretic is the first book in a genre-bending urban fantasy series that combines dark supernatural suspense with military adventure. If you like breakneck-paced thrillers, unforgettable characters, and intense battles with demons and other supernatural creatures, then you'll love this pulse-pounding series.

Fast paced and intriguing. A few basic mistakes but overall a good read. I was pleasantly surprised. Will be looking out for the next adventure.

HASH(0x92e0de54) étoiles sur 5 Thriller meets urban fantasy 3 février 2012
Par Kelly (Fantasy Literature) - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Joseph Nassise's Templar Chronicles series features a modern-day Knights Templar organization that battles the supernatural bad guys of the world. Its hero, Cade Williams, is a member of the Templars but has an uncanny reputation among the order for his psychic abilities. The Heretic is the first in the series and revolves around a cabal of sorcerers who is attacking Templar commanderies, slaughtering the members, and desecrating the cemeteries in search of a holy relic. Cade and his unit are assigned to the problem. The Heretic could be described as urban fantasy by way of a paramilitary/religious thriller.

As is apropos for a thriller, The Heretic includes a lot of action and tough-guy heroics. There's also a great deal of gore, so the weak of stomach need not apply.

Unfortunately, character development is sparse. There are only two women in the book; one of them is horribly murdered before the plot begins and the other is horribly murdered early in the book. Perhaps a Templar-focused novel was destined to be a sausage fest, but I can't say the men fare much better. There are more of them, but they're not well developed. Cade is given a touch of humanity by his grief for his late wife, but this is mentioned only in a few key scenes. The rest of the time he seems like a machine. The narrative is rarely introspective, instead simply giving the blow-by-blow of his outward actions as he orders and shoots and enhanced-interrogates his way through the plot. The other characters are less developed than Cade is. Perhaps the absence I felt most keenly was that of humor; no one ever cracks a joke. I didn't realize until reading The Heretic how much I've come to count on a pinch of sarcasm and a dash of gallows humor in my urban fantasy.

The writing is unornamented and occasionally has issues such as abrupt point-of-view shifts and repetitive sentence structure. The Heretic was originally published in 2005, however, and from the snippets I've seen of Eyes to See (The Jeremiah Hunt Chronicle), Nassise has grown in his prose writing in the intervening years. I would be willing to try another book of his one day.

The Heretic is not a horrible book; it just isn't for me. It could be a 3-star or 4-star book for a very different type of reader. This is a novel about manly men stoically getting the job done, with little in the way of stylistic or emotional frills. If that appeals to you, give this book a try. But for my own part, I must confess I like my frills.

HASH(0x92c5c7ec) étoiles sur 5 It is great to see this series finally available! An informational review. 29 juin 2010
Par Antmusic Fan - Publié sur Amazon.com

Like many of you, I've been waiting for the entire trilogy of Joseph Nassise's "The Templar Chronicles" to come out. Over the last few years, these were all translated into German and released in Germany, but not in English. That was really frustrating. Full Moon Press was going to release them, but then they closed shop. That was mind numbingly hard to deal with. Now, thanks to Harbinger Books they are in English and available right here on Amazon!

For your information, the books in this series are:

Book One: The Heretic

Book Two: A Scream of Angels

Book Three: A Tear in the Sky

The basic plot: The Templar order has been resurrected by the Vatican to fight the supernatural dark forces that surround us all. I don't want to give ANYTHING away here though.

These books are a thrill ride of fun!

Also, for those not into the digital side of things, the first book is also available as a paperback (from 2005, here: Heretic: The Templar Chronicles). There is also the physical The Templar Chronicles Omnibus from Bad Moon Books that has all THREE of the books!

I recommend downloading/reading the first book, and if you like it, continue the rest of the series. BUT, don't read the product description for part three! It has a slight "motivation" spoiler in it. So, for those that like all of their mystery to remain mysterious, don't read that product description.

So, download "The Heretic" now. Give it a good read! The price is certainly right for the amount of fun you will have.

HASH(0x92c5c7b0) étoiles sur 5 Fabulous page-turner 14 décembre 2010
Par Maria Schneider - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
The Heretic is easily one of the best books I've read all year. If you read and enjoyed The Adept Series by Katherine Kurtz and miss that series now that it has ended, this one is for you.

There are several POVs, but the characterization is outstanding enough that I ended up caring about several characters--a rare feat by an author indeed. The paranormal elements and world building are consistent and well-done. The pacing is fantastic.

This book managed to be action-packed and deal with military and Templar issues without being the least bit dry or preachy. It's got tough guy AND heart. The best news for me was to find that the entire trilogy is already available. I've already downloaded the second book.

If you liked Da Vinci code, this one is notches and notches above--everything Da Vinci could have been and wasn't. If you didn't like Da Vinci code and never got the excitement over the themes, give this a shot. It did everything right.

HASH(0x92c5cd8c) étoiles sur 5 Christian militancy not good fantasy 17 septembre 2011
Par Blondredneck - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I bought this book because it was compared favorably to the work of Katherine Kurtz. In fact, both are in English and reference the Knights Templar but that is where the similarity ends. The characters in Katherine Kurtz's novels have a deep spirituality which imbues them with certain abilities and that leads them to oppose forces that will harm the world and mankind. The characters in this book have a religious conviction that they feel entitles them to go out and whup butt. Fighting ghosts, spirits and demons with machine guns? Really? The characters are shallow, the plot unbelievable (if the Knights have been fighting the supernatural for several hundred years wouldn't they be aware that something more than standard issue military ammo is needed?) and overall I was very disappointed in this book. If you enjoy the idea of a Christian militia going out to kick butts and take names, you might be impressed. If you are looking for a good fantasy novel with a system of magic, spirituality, good and evil, pick up another book instead.

HASH(0x92c5cb40) étoiles sur 5 Pretty Darn Good Action Thriller for only $2.99! 8 septembre 2010

This was the 2nd book I paid for and read on my new Kindle 3. I already have plans to get the next two books in this series. I love stories dealing with the Templar Knights and this is a good one. Special Forces for the church? You bet! Demons and magic and a Christian thriller as well.
