The Friday 56, The Templar Legacy

* Grab the book nearest you. Right now.
* Turn to page 56.
* Find the fifth sentence.
* Post that sentence (plus one or two others if you like) along with these instructions on your blog or (if you do not have your own blog) in the comments section of Storytime With Tonya and Friends.
*Post a link along with your post back to Storytime With Tonya and Friends.
* Don't dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

The book this week is The Templar Legacy by Steve Berry. It is the first book in his Cotton Malone series. I read one later on in the series and liked it so I thought I would go back and start from the beginning.

The sentence:

History had not been kind to the Order. Though they captured the imagination of poets and chroniclers - the Knights of the Grail in Parzival were Templars, as were the demonic antiheroes in Ivanhoe - as the Crusades acquired the label of European aggression and imperialism, the Templars became an integral part of their brutal fanaticism.

Although it may not look like it here, this is a fiction book. It just happens to have a lot of history in it too.
