A group of sorcerers want to steal the lance called the Spear of Destiny. The lance is being protected by the Templars. This is book one of The Templar Chronicles a new urban fantasy series by Joseph Nassie.
Cade, the main protagonist, wars against both his own anger and the enemies of the church. He doesn’t have the depth I expect from Nassise’s characters. There is plenty of action and mayhem heavily laden with weaponized supernatural beings.
It is a light read and should be appealing to the teen market.
After writing the above, I discovered that this was an older story, one of the first by the author. That certainly puts it in a different perspective. It also shows why his later books were so much better as he grew his trade craft. Congrats to the author on the improvement as I do really like the later books.
