Last year we participated in the Columbia Gorge Book Festival, and one of the authors there was JMM Adams. Her books have a lot of German Shepherds on the front, so my minion had to have them. We got one or two because if I left minion have her way, we would have bought like half the books there. Which yay for those authors, but mommy isn’t rolling in money.
So this book is good, it is a mystery detective type book that has a group of people who search for artifacts. Now this is not the first book in the series. I had to piece together some of what was going on. The artifact in this book allowed them to time travel, but it appears that most of the books are this way. Anyways, so they travelled back in time, and met the Knights Templar. Yes those knights, the very same as Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.
Overall this is a fun read, and if I read it without my background in history and copyright laws, I would have really liked it. Now the actual history isn’t bad, and I will give it to the author for knowing their history. My issue is with the images, and there are a lot of them. When the characters go to a castle, there is an image of the castle. There are maps and other things as well.
So with that said, I am going to rate this book on the written content, and not the content of the images. I personally think the images could have been removed and the story would have still held its own.
