Elizabeth Chadwick’s forthcoming paperback ‘Templar Silks’ – thrilling adventure story.

A marvellous adventure story where Elizabeth Chadwick really makes the reader feel that they are in medieval Jerusalem, and of course, the book features perhaps Ms Chadwick’s most well drawn hero, William Marshal, England’s Greatest Knight.

It is a beautifully written book, which is what I’ve come to expect from the pen of Elizabeth Chadwick. The other books that she has produced about Marshal, are totally engrossing and this one comes as a totally unexpected gift as his life story had pretty much been covered by the others; but his time on the crusade was the missing piece of the jigsaw.

In describing William’s exploits in Jerusalem where religion, power, lust, war, wealth and poverty all fight for attention, Elizabeth Chadwick has brought the period vividly to life. She has woven a splendid tale around his adventures. She also has a wide range of supporting characters, both sympathetic and at the other end of the scale, particularly vicious, for we readers to get our teeth into.

Another splendid book that an extra dimension to the Marshal’s character. It was both an exciting and deeply moving read at times.

I was sent a copy of this book by the publisher for a frank and honest review via Netgalley. I give the book Five stars.
