Another Review of “Knights of the Saltier”

Here is another review.

Exciting and different!, August 25, 2010 by SG of Charlotte, NC

Knights of the Saltier is a unique and unusual novel. The idea of a secret group of men and women whose primary motives relate to seeing justice done both inside and outside the system, may not be totally new, but Mr. Speir manages to paint a vivid and exciting picture of these individuals and their double-lives with a new flavor in just a couple of hundred pages.

An interesting plotline, developed characters, romance, action, intrigue, and a few clever twists are combined with the unique conceptual ideas that drive this group of people to form an attention-keeping story that’s hard to put down.

It appears that Mr. Speir is writing (or intends to write) this story as a trilogy with The Knights of the Saltier as book one. This is good news for readers because reading this kind of story is fun and exciting, and as we get caught up in the concept and these characters, it’s easy to see why there could and should be more.
