Summary

In 1156, the sixth Grand Master of the Knights Templar brings a mysterious object from Jerusalem to his homeland in the South of France. "The Head of Wisdom", as the strange artifact is called, ensures that the Order achieves unprecedented wealth. But in October 1307, the French king fights against the Templars. All commanderies of the Templars are closed, all members arrested. Templar Commander Lieutenant Gero of Breydenbach is to flee to Germany with the "Head of Wisdom" to keep their secret. A truly fantastic journey begins. Suddenly he finds himself in 2004 - dependent on a fascinating young woman, who might help him to fulfill his mission...

Perfectly researched. Historically accurate. Based on a real legend. An outstanding adventure.

Great mystery, excitement, legends and Devereaux!

Tales of the Templars are clouded with mystery and legends. History tells us of their brutal downfall by the King of France. As the Templars were being slaughtered there has always been tales of treasures and Holy grail some of them managed to hide somewhere. In this beautifully written story by Martina Andre she manages to involve those legends with something completely new and exciting. Time travel tale has never been so entertaining, believable, fun, romantic and the suspense is almost constant. Is it correct historically? I dont know exactly...but it is close enough as places and people sounds real and familiar. If it was a possibility I would have given the narrator, Sam Devereaux 6 stars for his lively performans, so enjoyable listening to him.

Liked it, Hated it, Loved It but....

....no matter what I did, I couldn't stop listening. Sometimes the writing was heavy-handed, repetitive phrases, an outlandish and confusing storyline, (I know I dropped a few threads) but I plowed along for 25 hours and ended up enjoying it immensely. Perhaps it's because I majored in Medieval English Literature, am a History Teacher, and a Sci-Fi devotee that even when bumpy I needed to know what happened to the characters in the end. That is the sign of a good book, is it not? May not be to everyone's taste it was mine.

Outstanding

Bravo for unique time-traveling novel. None of the bland cliche fictional time traveler nonsense. Narration was outstanding. My copy however had several duplicated chapters in the audible download. It makes you wonder, could that have actually happened?
