I've not read many books set during this time period. For a book that was suppose to be about a Templar Knight there was very little in the way of Templar Knights. I was disappointed. Despite the summer on the back cover I was expecting more action. Particularly more action involving swords. This book could have used some action.
While the plot was interesting, there was just something lacking (and I think it was action - as mention previously). I got bored reading this and my mind wandered. There were so many directions McCall could have taken this book but she chose the tried and true romance novel method. Blah. Even a romance novel can be inventive from time to time.
