  • As a history teacher I enjoy the well researched historical novel which author Jack Whyte masters with few better. From that perspective I enjoyed coverage of the daily ins and outs of the people who lived at the time period. Was shocked that King Richard the Lionhearted had some peculiar appetites which I will not reveal. But as the story evolved and the character experienced the milieu of which he was part I began to wonder if the book would ever end. Could have done the story justice with half as many pages. It seemed like an endless journal rather than a novel. Have read dozen and a half of Whyte's books - this only one which I was not fully thrilled with the read , just too long with no purpose for it.

  • Well, it turns out most of the reviews were right.

    I hugely enjoyed the first book of the series, so bought this one (#2). And now, at end, I've been trying to fathom exactly why Jack Whyte actually wrote it.

    The best I can believe is that he wanted a novel that depicts what daily conversations between knights were like in the middle ages. Literally page after page after page after page after page after page after page after page of conversation. Interesting characters appear, like Saracen assassins, but we only get the barest introductions to them. Battles are a one or two page affair.

    Furthermore, if you are hoping for a novel with cool Templar or secret society ("Sion") action or scenes, you were be totally disappointed. There is almost none.

    I will not be buying the third book of the series and do not recommend this one.

  • Good historical writer, well researched and very nicely done tale of the Knights Templar. Need all three for the whole story .
    Painless history lessons suitable for youngsters too ! Reasonably accurate as best I can tell.

  • This book is adventure into the 3rd crusade where the reader lives this horrific event in every detail. True to its title, the heart of this story is the display of honor in its most exemplary form. I recommend it to readers who enjoy exploring the higher qualities of the human spirit.

  • I am still reading "Standard of Honor" and enjoying every second of it. Can't wait to finish so I can read "Order in Chaos" I have never read any of Jack Whyte's books before i started the "trilogy" but now I will be looking for more!!!

  • I bought the whole series before reading any, a mistake

  • ????????

  • A very lengthy book, very wordy.
