Standard of HonorBook - 2007
Jack Whyte's thrilling Templar Trilogy continues with Standard of Honor, in which oaths of loyalty and obedience are weighed against the virtues of honour and nobility. As the deadly Crusades rage on, Christian forces are easily destroyed by the armies of Saladin. Among the Knights Templar are two cousins: Alexander Sinclair, a spy for the ancient Brotherhood of Sion, and André St. Clair, a young man forced to escape his homeland when he is wrongfully accused of a crime. But further trouble comes in the form of the new English King, Richard the Lionheart, whose duplicitous ways and fierce temper lead to a shocking and vicious betrayal of one of his own best men. In this dramatic second instalment of the Templar Trilogy, our heroes find themselves unsure whether their true enemy stands against them ... or amongst them.
