Quite the opposite.  They were the Knights Templar and became inflected during the crusades.  It was a virus, well, more than one.  And another group of the church is hunting them.  (That group was formed out of the Inquisition.)

ETA typos.

Can they be read in any order?  Our library has been giving them out haphazardly and I wanted to know what the correct order is.

thanks

Karen J.,

IMO, they should be read in order - the early ones especially, as the world-building & mythology is explained & expanded upon in the first 2-3.

In order.  It is sort of an extended family where they keep referring to past couples and politics.  And one couple show up in at least 3 books.

These IMO are ones you need to read in order (and I usually have no problem w/ reading out of order).  The couple from the first book pops up in all the books, and there is an ongoing story that is built on in each book and is more important in this series than in a typical paranormal series
