Fleeing from a man who wants to rape her before marriage to ensure a crown, the heroine sees no other escape than to run strength into a war zone. The hero, a Templar knight, leads his severely outmatch and unnumbered men against the Moors but soon the battle turns for the worst and he watches all of his men die. He also spots a female rush onto the killing field and doesn't hesitate to rescue her and take her from the carnage. But in the process, he feels like a coward and also takes a shot to his side and passes out from blood loss. He wakes up on a boat heading towards the holy land with the heroine beside him. He vows to fulfill a vow and bring the art of the convent home to Scotland and together they go on an adventure to first find the artifact then transport it back to Scotland. I felt disappoint by this book and compare it to a very dull version of Indiana jones. First off, the hero was half dead just at the start of the book via the arrow he was shot with, yet arrives in perfect health in Jerusalem and it's never spoken of again. I'm sorry, just because the guys a beast on the battlefield doesn't mean he's invincible. That sort of injury doesn't just instantly heal itself. Another thing was the comical way the villain would just pop up randomly in a scene. They're in the middle of the jungle and he'll appear like magic and threaten the heroine. They would escape and have a moments reprieve before he'd reappear again. It was like wack-a mole! I also found it extremely unbelievable that it would be that easy to find the lost ark and certainly it's unbelievable that one guy and a small 100 pound woman would be able to carry out the thing when it's solid gold. I didn't find any rhythm to the story and was bored very quickly with the lack of imagination with the dialogue. I would have loved to be taken deeper into the male hero and explored his guilt over leaving his men but this book was not deep or thought-provoking in the least. ( )
