Tristan of St. Alban's has always lived his life with the monks. Now, he is being whisked away as Sir Thomas's squire. The Saracens are trying to conquer the Holy Land, and Tristan has been pushed into the conflict. Soon he meets a possible traitor within the Knights Templar and is entrusted with the most sacred relic in all Christendom. Tristan leaves Sir Thomas behind as he runs to deliver the relic to safety. His new allies, Robard Hode and a female assassin, help him remain alive and able to continue his quest. Can Tristan make it to safety with the Holy Grail?

By reading the summary of The Youngest Templar I knew it would be about the crusades. However, I did not expect to read an extremely provoking, fiction story. While the beginning is slightly slow, the additions in plot move swiftly and beneficially in exciting the reader. The vocabulary was perfect for the young adult age group. Also, the character's personalities were intriguing, and the context clues made me want to know more about Tristan. On the downside, many conflicts were left untold and I will have to wait until the second book comes out to find more information.

The Youngest Templar is an intriguing story about a young squire during the Crusades who has been tasked with returning the legendary Holy Grail to England. With no ship to take, he must take the land route with his friends. His friend Robard is a banished archer with great skill. Also, with them is a Hashashin assassin who has great talent in camoflauge. Their amazing journey takes them to meet French outcasts who are running away from someone but not telling who.

I thought this book was very interesting. It got me thinking because I had never read a book that took place during the Crusades. To me, it gave a perspective into a world that was more interesting than Star Wars. I ended up buying the first book because I liked this one so much.
