Dear Lovely Readers,
This book today was one I bought because it contained the Knights Templar. A girl joining the Knights Templar!!! Now, if you've never heard of that, look it up. There are so many legends and such connected to them, and it's all just really awesome.
So back to the book. It's Devil's Kiss by Sarwat Chadda.
Summary (<3 b="" goodreads="">):3>
"As the youngest and only female member of the Knights Templar, Bilquis SanGreal grew up knowing she wasn't normal. Instead of hanging out at the mall or going on dates, she spends her time training as a soldier in her order's ancient battle against the Unholy. One of the order's ancient enemies has resurfaced, searching for a treasure that the Templars have protected for hundreds of years -- a cursed mirror powerful enough to kill all of London's firstborn. To save her city from catastrophe, Billi will have to put her heart aside and make sacrifices greater than any of the Templars could have imagined."
This novel is very girl power. This chica has been trained by the best in order to fight against the worst, most evil of entities. So even though she is a girl, trying to live her teen life, she has given up a lot for this lifestyle she has. And so when a guy turns up who's cute and interested, she can't just turn him away.
I had super high expectations for a novel about the Knights Templar, and I wasn't a fan of the ending, honestly. However, the sequel is out, and it sounds awesome, so I'm sure what went down was important. Plus, the novel was still pretty awesome.
In Conclusion: Go for it! It's interesting and fun!
