The Templar’s Sword

ABOUT THE BOOK

In a medieval world bursting with mythical creatures, secret passages, spells, potions, maps and magic symbols, a Knight from the Order of the Temple is ordered by his Grand Magister to find and deliver to the Knight Templars’ headquarters in France the Holy Grail, the Holy Sword and the Arc of the Testament.

Through this exciting journey, a period of human history emerges vividly, full of violence, adventure, romance and courage where the unknown is relentlessly present! From the Kingdom of Jerusalem to the Hagia Sofia (Holy Wisdom) in the Byzantine Empire and from the earth’s depths to the Hyperborea and the island of Thule; from the catacombs of Rome to the Mediterranean of the pirates and the Pharaohs’ pyramids.

Crusaders and Knights, fighters and elves, demons and archangels entwine in the vortex of the ancient battle between good and bad. And among all that, a passionate love tale emerges…

My novel “The Templar’s Sword” is a cine-book radiating the essence of Greece and a praise song to knighthood, love and the magnificent souls of all those who once fought for a fairer world!

ΛΙΓΑ ΛΟΓΙΑ ΓΙΑ ΤΟ ΕΡΓΟ

Σε έναν µεσαιωνικό κόσµο που βρίθει από µυθικά πλάσµατα, µυστικά περάσµατα, ξόρκια, φίλτρα, χάρτες και µαγικά σύµβολα, ένας Ιππότης του Τάγµατος του Ναού λαµβάνει εντολή από τον Μέγα Μάγιστρο να βρει και να µεταφέρει στο αρχηγείο των Ναϊτών στη Γαλλία και να µεταφέρει στο αρχηγείο των Ναϊτών στη Γαλλία το Άγιο Δισκοπότηρο, την Ιερή Λόγχη και την Κιβωτό της Διαθήκης.
Σ’ αυτό το συναρπαστικό ταξίδι, αναδύεται µια περίοδος της ανθρωπότητας κατακλυσµένη από βία, περιπέτειες, ροµαντισµό και θάρρος, όπου το άγνωστο παραµονεύει παντού! Από το Βασίλειο της Ιερουσαλήµ στην Αγία Σοφία της Βυζαντινής Αυτοκρατορίας, από τα έγκατα της γης στην Υπερβορεία και στο νησί της Θούλης, κι από τις κατακόµβες της Ρώµης στη Μεσόγειο των πειρατών και στις πυραµίδες των Φαραώ.
Σταυροφόροι και ιππότες, πολεµιστές και ξωτικά, δαίµονες και στρατιές αρχαγγέλων εµπλέκονται στη δίνη της αρχέγονης πάλης µεταξύ καλού και κακού. Και µέσα σε όλα αυτά ένας µεγάλος έρωτας γεννιέται…

ΜΙΚΡΟ ΒΙΟΓΡΑΦΙΚΟ

Ο λογοτέχνης Γιάννης Νικολαΐδης γεννήθηκε στη Θεσσαλονίκη. Έζησε και εργάστηκε στην Αθήνα, όπου σπούδασε τη Δραματική τέχνη και δούλεψε στο θέατρο,στην τηλεόραση και στον κινηματογράφο. Γραπτά του έχουν δημοσιευθεί κατά καιρούς στις ετήσιες λογοτεχνικές εκδόσεις των Θρακικών Χρονικών, σε εφημερίδες και περιοδικά, καθώς και στην ανθολογία νέων Ελλήνων ποιητών. Στην ελληνική δισκογραφία συνεργάστηκε µε πολλά μεγάλα ονόματα και για τις στιχουργικές του συμμετοχές τού έχουν απονεμηθεί πλατινένιοι και χρυσοί δίσκοι. Ταξίδεψε και γνώρισε πολλούς τόπους και ανθρώπους, εντός και εκτός συνόρων. Οι μεταφυσικές του αναζητήσεις τον οδήγησαν στην Αυτογνωσία ή Γνώση του Εαυτού. Ζει στον κόσμο αυτό, αλλά δεν είναι του κόσμου αυτού!

Reviews

“A brilliant, unique and distinguished narration, a hymn to Knights Templar”

  • Ioannis Rodopoulos, Grand Master

 

***

“In his first novel, a surprise for Greek publishing, the multitalented author GiannisNikolaidis writes about a global historical issue, the Knights of the Temple, also known asPoor Fellow-Soldiers of Christ […] I really wish and hope this book finds its place in the universal mythology!”

  • Louis Soroniatis, Economist, Social Scientist

 

***

“I have to admit the novel The Templar’s Sword, by GiannisNikolaidis has been a very pleasant surprise! I really thought I would read a “masculine” novel, full of violence and battles… However, the lyrical descriptions and the poetic writing fascinate me and transported me back to the 12th century with the lonely romantic hero… A book for demanding readers […]I wholeheartedly recommend it to young adults or grown-ups who refuse to age. I’d really love to see a sequel with John the Brave’s new adventures”

  • Chrysi Vitsilaki, Directorat the Department of Preschool Education and Educational Design at University of the Aegean

 

***

“GiannisNikolaidis’ novel is a clever intertwining of ancient Greek classic values, paganistic eastern elements, European knight romanticism and the humanistic spirit of Christianity”

  • Katerina Petronikolou, Literature Teacher

 

***

“A novel full of historical elements which show that the author did not stop at imagination and talent. He has researched, read and is very cultured”

  • Martha Papadopoulou, Literature Teacher, Actor.

 

***

“It’sbeenyearssinceIreadsuchawonderfulbook! I really had the feeling that I was transported in a fairy tale for grown-ups, although in this book, imagination went hand in hand with the historical situation of the 12th century, just before the darkness of Medieval Ages gave their place to the light of Renaissance”

  • AmaliaBabaliki, Medical Labs Technician

 

***

“A wonderful journey to an era when time, people and profit have (once more) distorted history…”

  • GiannisPapaioannou, Composer – Singer

 

***

“The novel is so tightly wound to the real historical persons and events of the 12th century that the reader may sit back and enjoy this wonderful journey”

  • Michael Savvakis, Orthopedic – Surgeon

 

***

“Written with exceptional penmanship which transports you to other eras and worlds you will not be able to forget…”

  • DimitriosSkarmoutsos, VIP protection

 

***

 

“A cinematic book – images come alive before your eyes, a compelling, romantic, magical journey. An exceptional book written with a lot of research and passion”

  • EfthimiaAthanasiadou – Maraki, Author

 

***

“It will fascinate you with its prose, the historical atmosphere of the period, the intensity of all the feelings”.

  • KonstantinaXeni, Literature Teacher

 

***

“A book where history meets religion, philosophy and imagination… It is like a diary of a Knight, as images, battles and historical details come alive before our eyes. A wonderful novel!”

  • Michael Skiathitis, Athlete
