On the run from the law . . . in 14th century France

Life as a Templar Knight returning from the Crusades is dull bread, beans, and lots and lots of walking. But after Martin stumbles upon his lost love (now married to someone else), things begin to get more interesting very quickly. There's a vast conspiracy afoot to destroy the Templar Order and steal their treasure. Soon, Martin finds himself one of the only Templars out of prison and out for revenge

A swashbuckling story of betrayal, adventure, and an epic swindle, Solomon's Thieves is the first volume in a trilogy written by Jordan Mechner (the creator of the acclaimed Prince of Persia video games) and illustrated by LeUyen Pham and Alex Puvilland.
