About book: Kat Black's, "A Templar's Apprentice" is a fantastic voyage through time and 14th century Europe. Following Tormod from the Highlands of Scotland into the midst of a secret battle waged between the Templars and their enemies, we meet a cast of historical figures (with some creative flair from the author), and enter a world of uncertainty, fear, magic, and hope, perfectly blended to enthrall younger readers.I've always been a fan of history, especially anything to do with the Templar Knights, and so this novel already appealed to me just from the title. What I especially appreciated is how many characters really existed, and that when I finished the book, I could research the characters and learn more about their lives and legends.This is hardly the only historical fiction novel out there, but what separates "A Templar's Apprentice" from so many others is how real the characters feel. Kat doesn't whitewash the difficulties of living in the 14th century, and it allows Tormod and the rest of the cast to evolve into three dimensional characters.I recommend this novel, and the rest of the series, to anyone who loves fantasy, adventure, history, knights, magic, or just a great story. It has something for everyone, and though it is targeted at a younger reader, the story is appealing to all ages.Robert Davis Reviewed by Jennifer Rummel for TeensReadToo.comTormod runs home to grab the box of tinder for lighting the Beltane fires. Never mind that he traded jobs with his brother. If the fire doesn't light on time, he's going to be in trouble.Unfortunately, a Knight's Templar needs a message delivered as soon as possible to the Abbot. Abandoning his task, Tormod runs to the Templar encampment. There he delivers the message, but there are already men with the Abbot. The men swiftly leave, intent on hunting down the Knight. Tormod has a vision of their encounter, and begs the Abbot to allow him to intercept the Knight and lead him across a different path.Tormod never guesses that his journey to help the Knight will lead him far away from home and on an adventure he never imagined.A TEMPLAR'S APPRENTICE starts the beginning of an adventurous quest that crosses several countries. Danger always follows the Knight Templar and his companions. Plus, Tormod has hidden talents, creating a blend of religion and supernatural elements that he will need to understand in order to remain alive.
