If you liked this… You should try this…
People ask me all the time for book recommendations, and since my tastes are so varied, I usually can give them something. I tend to read whatever I can get my hands on, and that is EVERYTHING.
Here are a few recommendations based on popular books:
If you like…
…Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings, you should try The Kingkiller Chronicles by Patrick Rothfuss
…The DaVinci Code, you should try The Last Templar by Raymond Khoury
…Gone with the Wind, you should try The Thorn Birds by Colleen McCullough
…The Giver, you should try Breeder by KB Hoyle
In March 2006, Dan Brown published The Davinci Code, and the world went crazy for it. The mysteries of the Templar Knights and the legend of the Holy Grail–that’s been in so many movies and books, it was destined to be a best seller. I fully admit to having a serious professor crush on Robert Langdon.
A lesser known book came out just a few months later in November. Raymond Khoury published The Last Templar. It’s been awhile since I’ve read it, but I remember it as a cop thriller mixed with historical romance. Khoury just came out with a sequel, which I picked up. I will probably reread the first book again before I tackle the second so maybe I’ll do a dual review.
The Templar Knights mix in to my fascination with lords and ladies and love of all things medieval. Their legends are all around mysterious, and their legacy branched into so many dark and secretive organizations. I’m sure most of it has been exaggerated in fiction, but it sure is fun to think about.
