Books about the Templars/Crusades- Recommendations?
I've recently been playing The First Templar and while it is amazingly silly at times, it has put me in the mood to read a novel about the Templar orders and the crusades again. Checking on amazon however there seem to be an awful lot of books that... well, they seem like garbage basically. Some horribly hybrid of Da Vinci Code and the Templars, always going on about their great secret etc.
I'm looking for something a bit more historically accurate while still telling a good story. Imagine something along the lines of Bernard Cornwell's works. A fairly grounded story, no fantasy or magic, but I am fine with some minor liberties taken with history if it is to put the character in a specific battle and so forth.
The only books I've read like this so far are the Brethren trilogy by Robyn Young, which I enjoyed immensely and would highly recommend to anyone else looking for the same as me.
I figure the collective brain spew of the rps forum must have something to suggest to help me out, so what do you think?
