On Friday night I sat down and stared at the bookshelf for a few minutes, contemplating what my next book to read should be. My eyes were scanning along, very eager to grab something when I stopped at this book. I've had this for a while but hadn't gotten around to reading it yet. Yeah, that happens a lot. But anyway, I love anything to do with the Vatican and secret societies or groups secretly fighting the darkness of this world... it's why I've got such a soft spot for my character Trina's world... Anyway, picked it up to read the Prologue. Y'know, see how it grabbed me?

Well, the Prologue wasn't enough. I got suckered into the story so deeply that I'd read about 70 pages in one sitting before my body told me it was time to go to sleep.

Here's the short blurb:

At the end of the First Crusade, the church created a monastic military order known as the Knights Templar. Now, rising up from the ashes of history, they are the Vatican's last defense in the war between good and evil...

This was enough to hook me in the first time I spotted this book.

The story is told in different POVs but the main one was Cade Williams. He's one of the Knights, with some very uncanny powers that help him battle evil. But his heartbreaking inner demons are what really grabbed me. And although he's a tough guy with a bad rep, I really liked him. Sean Duncan was also pretty interesting.

HERETIC is a fast-paced tale that keeps you glued until the very last word. I think this is the start of a series, so I'm really looking forward to reading more about these characters and the evil they have to fight.

I really enjoyed this book, it was an excellent read!
