Flamingnet Student Book Reviewer  KMeng
In the 1500's Mattias Tannhauser, of the German language, is asked to help a noble woman, Lady Carla, find her lost son on the island of Malta. Tannhauser agrees to take her to the island if she agrees to marry him after her son is found. Yet, a steamy romance also develops between Lady Carla's friend, Amparo, and Tannhauser. The Religion, Christianity, is in control of Malta but the invading Turks threaten a hostile takeover. The Religion's soldiers are extremely far fewer in number than the Turks, and Tannhauser finds himself, his friend, Bors, and many more involved in the battles to help. Tannhauser must deal with death, Amparo's love for him, finding Lady Carla's son, a traitor or two, and the fight. Can he figure out who he loves, find the lost boy, and help Malta prevail?

I thought The Religion would be kind of boring. However, it was quite the opposite. Right from the beginning you get carried off into the world of Tannhauser. Dramatic irony builds up because you know everything about every character, but the other characters do not. The plot is simple at first, but then it gets extremely in depth and complex. You really have to pay attention to what is happening or you will get lost. Along with that, the vocabulary is very advanced; I found myself not knowing many of the words. The imagery is amazing because it describes things that you don't even expect to be described. Overall, The Religion was an amazing book that I recommend war-lovers or heroic-romance fans read.

There is extreme violence, sexual scenes, bad language, and also reference to Christianity and Islamic religions throughout the entire book.
