Jack Farrell and The Order of the Temple

One night Jack is awaken by his grandfather, Godofredo, who breaks the terrible news of the death of Jack’s father, Hugo Farrell. This tragic event is the starting point of a series of events that take Jack Farrell in the middle of a plot of mystery and mysticism, entering a universe inhabited by fantastic and mythological creatures, in a breathtaking quest for the Holy Grail. Helped by his inseparable friends Gwen, Will, the winged horse Pegasus and his most unusual friend Carlitos - a young grumpy faun - Jack Farrell learns the secrets of the ancient and legendary Order of the Templar Knights. Jack also discovers something unexpected about his father: Hugo Farrell was much more than a knight of the order, he was the very guardian of the Holy Grail, which has disappeared since his death.

In the quest to find the Grail, Jack and his friends live many adventures, and they have to fight terrible monsters, such as the Kludde, an enormous creature, similar to a Wolf, with powerful wings and a petrifying breath. They visit exotic kingdoms, such as the one rule by the beautiful Sorceress-Queen Skatha, who amuses herself by training young heroes in the use of mystical weapons, but only after they have proven their value by overcoming the challenge of the Bridge of Obstacles.

Jack and his friends meet Jean of Florence, the Grand Master of the Templar knights, who, in 1316, in a secret ceremony that has been never repeated, drank from the Holy Grail. Jean, together with eight other knights, became immortal. His mysterious past conceals something terrible from which his guilty still torments him.

They also meet the immortal knight Domenico Albertino, called the Grimoir, the wisest of the knight of the Order of the Poor Knights of Christ and of Solomon’s Temple, who is the guardian of its ancient traditions. Albertino suspects that the Dark Order of Thule has stolen the Holy Grail and that, Ambrosius, the feared Black Sorcerer of their legions must be responsible for the murder of Jack’s father. What he does not know is that the mighty Lords of Agartha were also involved in those terrible events. And to make matter worse, there is the growing suspicion that there may be a traitor amidst the legions of the Order of the Temple.

Living thrilling – and sometimes amusing – adventures, Jack, Gwen and Will begin their quest for the Holy Grail. This wonderful adventure will take them to a journey of self-discovery, in which they will learn their true virtues, discover the secrets of their own souls, and which will inevitably help them grow. This magic journey will also help Jack discover his true and wonderful destiny: one day he shall become the Unifier of the Worlds.
