Reviews

". . . informative and enjoyable . . . . a good read." * Institute of Hermetic Studies, July 2007 *
". . . author Ernesto Frers takes us into esoteric history that will leave Johnny Depp fans gasping. He tells us that most pirates were either members of the Order of the Temple--that famed nemesis of the Vatican-or formed their own secret societies while taking revenge on ships sponsored by the Vatican and Catholic nations. And there's so much more. A real page-turner!" * Eva Yaa Asantewaa, mysite.verizon.net/magickaleva, June 14, 2007 *
"Fact, fiction or somewhere in between, Templar Pirates is entertaining to say the least." * Ashe Journal, Vol 6, Issue 1, Spring 2007. *
