    PDF (The Religion) I guess The Religion is a good titleit's cryptic and kinda ominous sounding and does have a connection to the actual contents of the story Despite that I think that Fucking Killing Shitting Malta 1565 might be a bit appropriate here While I can certainly agree all three of those things are an unavoidable part of life and can be an enjoyable part of fiction I really don't think that's what Mr Willocks was intending for me to see a

Summary The Religion ´ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Tim Willocks é 8 characters Free download The Religion This is what we dream of to be so swept away so poleaxed by a book that the breath is sucked right out of us Brace yourselves May 1565 Suleiman the Magnificent emperor of the Ottomans has declared a jihad against the Knights of Saint John the Baptist The largest armada of all time approaches the knights' Christian stronghold on the island of Malta The Turks know the knights as the Hounds of Hell The knights call themselves The Religion In Messina Sicily a French countess Carla La Penautier seeks There are a lot of rare things in this world that I would like to get my hands on Pink diamonds Vintage John Paul Gaultier Corset Dresses Black Limited Edition Burberry Trenchcoats An Aston Martin Vantage V8 or V12 I am not fussy and lengthy books that stay consistent in pace and uality from front cover to back cover Obviously for me only one of these was ever going to be attainable And it wasn t the Aston Martin Vantage It was of course a lengthy book with pace and uality finish to end An enigma A myth Often whispered about never actually seen I have tried one or two been tempted by a promise of cover to cover bounty many times Was once wrongly directed down the Count of Monte Cristo path A book that I felt suffered from much the same problem as many lengthy books Too much waffle and could benefit from being a couple hundred pages shorter Okay so editors were less keen on cutting back then but they should not be too scared of it now And yet they seem to beI will concede that The Religion could have been shorter Only nothing drastic 50 pages at the most But a few too many pages was kind of a small price to pay for a book that did not run out of prose in the first few chapters It went on On and on On and on and on Beefed up with excellent landscape and character creation anchored by vivid portals into extraordinary battle scenes I could not put it down It was a gem as rare as any pink diamond with as much pace at times as any V12 Aston Martin As tight at the top as at the waist as at the back as any Gaultier corset and with movement than any Burberry trenchIt was uite a findA rare find that you will notice from the outset With passages that wash across the page in fresh vernal literary splashesPage 12The Fagaras Mountains East Hungarian Marches Spring AD1540 The yard was empty The heavens at the rimrock s edge were reefed in vermilion cloud From the village pillars of smoke uavered skyward and with them cries of anguish and crackles of flame He walked across the cobbles sick with fear Fear of whatever vileness afflicted his mother Fear of shame Of cowardice Of the knowledge that he couldn t save her Of the darkness that had housed itself inside his spirit Yet the darkness spoke with a feral power that brooked no refusal nor hesitationPlunge in the darkness said Mattias turned and looked back at the forgeLike the blade in the uenchPlunge in Through to the middle they surged on The tautness of a well trained writer carving his skill in inked words Page 348The Gauntlet The Bailey The Causeway 11 June 1565 Straighten up breathe and blow shake the sweat He wheezed His chest was tight his gorge scorched He felt nauseous and weak He was too far forward Get backThe horde shouldered each other in their frenzy to get through the choke point their weapons constricted one shield obstructing another Spot the openings Swallow the scalding bile Kill him kill them kill them all A blow glanced off his helm and hammered into his pauldron Spike him in the privities stab him in the neck The fellow fought on from his knees blinded by the fountain from his arteries still scrabbling with his blade for the joints in Tannhauser s plateTannhauser drove the finial through his temple and stepped back Now backstep again Keep them at bay He threw an upward swordcut to the thighs and backstroke to the guts and a thrust to the chest in deep and twist Don t look in his eyes He s done And breathe you fool keep the knees loose ignore the battle cries Get backIt goes on On and on and on But I think I have shown you enoughDon t be dissuaded from trying this for fear it is too masculine It is masculine without a doubt but there is beauty too Beauty of the heart and of the lovelorn The author has not forgotten you You the reader of the heartWhile I did not think there was much romance in this book it is there A tugging undertow that a reader like me who does not read with the heart but reads with the mind can easily ignore I hardly even noticed the female characters most of the time They did not take up much room in my mental landscapeTo me the book is perfect Perfectly written Fast paced from start to finish The story however had some personal taste flaws They are not going to be flaws for everyone Some of what I call a flaw will be the things you will most likely value about the storyIt was ahem the sex Some may say it had to be there as sex is a natural part of life In part this is true although many live without sex in their lives and I would never claim their lives to be unnaturally led but the sex in this book is uite often odd Poorly located Unnecessary Forced into the storyThere isn t a lot of it and if you blink or skim read you may even miss it When it does come no pun intended it is oddly placed like an afterthought or to please the authors own building sexual tension If an author wants sex in a book it needs to feel naturally placed Not just plopped down because the author was randy or the editor told him it needed sexIt was a great ride while it lasted the book not the sex and I was disappointed it came to an end My forlorn need not last forever though for there is a book to follow it called Twelve Children of Paris I have bought it already and cannot wait to read it With any luck it will be as well done as this rare gem The Religion As this kind of writing skill is not something an author loses down a bottle of whiskey while he tries to outdrink his writer s block No he clearly has command of his writing talentThe only place I feel he can fall down will be story Lets hope he gets that right again tooDue to the odd sex 4 12 stars
