The final book in Kat Black's historical fantasy trilogy! Tormod MacLeod's brother, Torquil, has been captured and locked in a dungeon hidden in the depths of the French royal castle. Tormod and Aine journey to France, hoping to save him, but the search is proving more difficult than they ever imagined--and getting out alive seems impossible. Meanwhile, they must stop the wicked plot that King Philippe le Bel has put in motion to destroy the Knights Templar from within. Their journey takes them all the way to the French court, where they meet the enchanting Princess Isabella. She has her eye on Tormod, and Aine notices. Their chances of accomplishing all they've set out to do while keeping the power of the Holy Vessel from being exposed to the world are slim, and in the end, Tormod has a devastating decision to make.

A Templar's Destiny (The Book of Tormod Series #3) based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
If you havent read the first two of the series do so before...just saying. It keeps you hooked throughout all the stories main action. The only thing, in my personal opinion, is that for a young readers book some of the words were difficult to grasp at first then you get used to it. Really enjoyed.
The third book in The Book of Tormod series by Kat Black, "A Templar's Destiny" does not disappoint. After his failures in Scotia, Tormod returns to France with new friends and old companions, to save his brother kidnapped in his place. On this journey, Tormod's relationship with Aine hits highs and lows as he tries to reconcile his feelings for her with the oaths of a Templar Knight. Kat Black brings together a cast of characters she'd sent out in the world, and through pain and perseverance, they hope to triumph in the end. The way Kat writes her characters continues to bring them to life, and make the reader truly care whether they find love or loneliness, and live or die. Her descriptions are as vivid as her characters are relatable, Each page feels like you're in 14th century Europe, and on an adventure to boot. What I love most about this series and this book especially is its grounding in the mythology and history of the Templar Knights. I've always been fascinated by knights, and especially the Templar Knights, and reading a novel based around the factual heroes of European history is exciting because even when the series ends, there is so much information out there on the Templar Knights, that the story never really ends.
