At last, the book more than a million fans are waiting for: the sequel to The Last Templar.

With its iconic title and unmistakable cover, Raymond Khoury's million-copy- selling The Last Templar remains one of the most memorable thriller publications of the last decade. Finally, after four long years, Khoury returns to the world of the Templars with The Templar Salvation, a sequel that's every bit as eye-popping and as gripping as its predecessor. Constantinople, 1203: As the rapacious armies of the Fourth Crusade lay siege to the city, a secretive band of Templars infiltrate the imperial library. Their target: a cache of documents that must not be allowed to fall into the hands of the Doge of Venice. They escape with three heavy chests, filled with explosive secrets that these men will not live long enough to learn. Vatican City, present day: FBI agent Sean Reilly infiltrates the Pope's massive Vatican Secret Archives of the Inquisition. No one but the Pope's trusted secondi get in-but Reilly has earned the Vatican's trust, a trust he has no choice but to violate. His love, Tess Chaykin, has been kidnapped; the key to her freedom lays in this underground tomb, in the form of a document known as the Fondo Templari, a secret history of the infamous Templars... With his trademark blend of incendiary history and edge-of-your-seat suspense, Raymond Khoury's The Templar Salvation marks a triumphant return to the rich territory that launched his bestselling career.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angela | 2/17/2014

    " I enjoyed this book and it's mystery and intrigue. I love historical fiction and the way this mixes that with modern day mystery and adventure is great. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kate | 2/17/2014

    " Not as good as the Last Templar - trite and predictable....story was the same, just in different locales with a different villain. Finished it because I hate an unfinished book but wouldn't recommend it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Vickie | 2/5/2014

    " I've got to stop reading adventure stories based on legacy of the Knights Templar. I'm starting to get the different authors' story lines confused. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Dave Van Es | 1/21/2014

    " This series had so much promise, but then R. Khoury filled his book with all kinds of blasphemy which turned me off really quickly. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mickie | 1/17/2014

    " t pu could not put it down. a amazing blend of suspense and history. a great read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jan | 1/3/2014

    " Meh. Just wasn't as good as The Last Templar. More predictable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steven | 12/31/2013

    " Every bit as good as Khoury's first thrill ride with Reilly and Tess, Templar Salvation doesn't disappoint... history, mystery, adventure, and intrigue await... Pick it up! :) "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Claire | 12/17/2013

    " I think that this book and its predecessor, The Last Templar, should really be called How Many Priceless Historical Artifacts and Documents Can We Irresponsibly Destroy?. Seriously, this is ridiculous. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jane | 12/7/2013

    " There was a lot of action, but it was pretty predictable. Some good history and background about the templars and the time period when they lived. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katherine Vigil | 12/7/2013

    " Fast paced and tons of fun. If you like Brown or Berry you will enjoy Khoury. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marybeth | 11/28/2013

    " great book; great sequel. fast paced and lots of historical stuff to chomp on. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Thomas Steele | 11/13/2013

    " I enjoyed this book.It was an easy read thanks to the authors ability to keep up a good pace and making it a thrilling ride.I was surprised that he mentioned another authors character even if it was in passing.I think this was a first for me.Read this and find out who he mentions. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bill Costa | 11/1/2013

    " A good read. I enjoyed it. I do feel that the author spends to much time trying to convince believers in Christ that Jesus is not the son of God and the he did not rise from the dead. The author, being born in Lebonon, I wonder if he is a muslim. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cori Sherman North | 11/1/2013

    " Not good. The only redeeming factor is the history summaries were clear and accurate, but as for the narrative...painful to read, with no character development. Kept wanting to give up but thought i might as well slog it out to the unsurprising end before returning to library asap. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Bob | 10/13/2013

    " I did not enjoy this one. Kept skipping pages to see what happened in the end. The villain had no redeeming social value at all. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sable Jordan | 7/26/2013

    " Loved this sequel to the first one. Fast-paced and steeped in mystery. And I thought it was cool that khoury gave a nod to Steve Berry's Cotton Malone who is one of my all-time favorite characters. Good read :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Phyllis | 6/12/2013

    " This is the sequel to The Last Templar and I thought it was better than the first. Non-stop action start to finish. Looking forward to his next book. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Steve Isenhower | 11/21/2012

    " Not a good read. A big disappointment from an author i really like. He basically removed most of the mystery and legend of his previous books and made this one an unbelievable action only book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Curtis McKee | 10/11/2012

    " Very similar format to his first Templar book. Villian, religious treasure that does not get revealed until late, unsatisfactory ending. Will wait to read the third book in the series as, after two books, am tired of the author's style. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Al | 8/21/2012

    " Good read, a lot of action... and a lot of supposition "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leslie | 7/8/2012

    " Not bad, but he always seems to wimp out at the end. They found something amazing, but the world isn't ready for it, so no one will see it. The action was good though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Juraj | 7/6/2012

    " Not as good as last templar, predictable, forgettable "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Chuck Springer | 6/23/2012

    " I will start by saying I enjoyed the first book, "The Last Templar". It was interesting and captivating, although I confess that I did expect more of the same from this book. Unfortunately it just did not deliver. Frankly, I was disappointed and felt that this was the weakest book he's written. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Doug | 7/19/2011

    " Rip off of the Templar and Da Vinci books. Too far fetched. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura | 5/17/2011

    " It was more about the finding of the codexes than their history. It read like a james bond film. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sheila | 4/29/2011

    " This book made me realize how little I really know of early christian church, I found the templar's were exceptional and would like to read more about them. This is a book for history buffs and a great mystery. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kevin | 4/14/2011

    " This was a good read!!! I really enjoy the weaving of the story of early Christianity- Templars and how he goes between present day with CIA agent Reilly and the 1190's with Conrad and Maysoon.

    Keep up the great job. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Thomas | 3/16/2011

    " I think I am on the third book by Khoury, I like the detail of the setting his novels exist in. I have not been all that interested in the ending, just like that stories continue. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cori | 2/21/2011

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tommy | 2/5/2011

    " I enjoyed this book. It was a sequel to an earlier book. I especially enjoyed the back-and-forth between present time and the 1300-hundreds to help tell how things in question actually happened back in history as part of the story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Al | 1/19/2011

    " Good read, a lot of action... and a lot of supposition "
