When the king of France orders a mass arrest of the Knights Templar as a pretext to seize the noble order's legendary treasure, a handful of fugitive knights-turned-outlaws band together to stop the tyrant by pulling off the greatest heist of the 14th century. With gorgeous illustrations by LeUyen Pham and Alex Puvilland, this 480-page, full-color, hardcover graphic novel by Jordan Mechner is itself a treasure.
"Templar is chockablock with clanging sword fights, lusty brawls, treasure heists, romance, betrayal and comic-relief narrow escapes. All of this, combined with Mechner's extensive research, gives Templar a headlong narrative propulsion."
