Jeremy's smile was small and crooked, but it looked real enough for all that. Lifting his hand he made a lazy gesture, which took in all the island, and the Caribbean beyond, and the million and one stars in the sky above; "What do I want from you, Simon?" he repeated, plainly amused, like he always was. "I'm afraid my answer is the same that it's always been: everything that you're willing to give me, and then everything more that I can take."

People wait for hours at airports to ask us for autographs. I suspect most of them are being sold on eBay. Whenever I ask, ‘Who is this to?’ they say, ‘Er, no one.’ One guy even said, ‘I need more weed, please sign this photo.’ I was like, ‘No – or I’m basically supplying you with drugs!’ - Sophie Turner

Shadow of the Templar. M. Chandler. 2009. Lulu

When the young FBI agent Simon Drake and his team were put on a case to catch the famous British art thief Jeremy Archer, nobody could’ve expected what happened next. Forced to work together to prevent world destruction, the two of them find themselves in a secret romance neither is prepared for.

Shadow of the Templar is a web-original, 4-novel action series that does a great job of juggling both action and romance while showing a new, modern approach to queer literature. The author sets forth a “cinematic feel” and it’s written very much like screenplay.

Every book in the series is a stand-alone story as it can be read alone, but there are many plot elements that stand above them all. The first book, The Morning Star introduces us to the cast of characters and the story deals with the first cooperation between Jeremy and Simon’s team. In Double Down we see the team try to catch a dangerous thief who imitates Jeremy’s style and then discover there’s a traitor in their ranks. With a Bullet starts off with Jeremy getting a call informing him that Simon has been shot and there’s a psychopath wanting to take a revenge on the rest of the team. The series concludes in High Fidelity with all the previous plot points coming together in a climatic ending that leaves you sitting on the edge your seat. The series is interlaced with the romance, and while the characters are terrible at it, it comes off as very endearing.

The language used is very vernacular. Sometimes it can be a bit vulgar, but it is often very humorous and gives certain characters a very distinguished voice. The author is fond of foreshadowing and is not afraid to bring up plot points from three books ago.

This series is one of the best I’ve ever read and definitely the funniest. All the characters and their development are handled with care and so is the relationship between the main characters. The books are easy to reread and you will still continue to find new details and it never gets boring.

A Recommendation: Shadow of the Templar

I’ve wanted to do this for a while, but haven’t been able to sit down and write it until now. Basically, you should read this four novel web original series. (I suggest reading the novels themselves first, then moving on to the short stories afterward.)

First, I’ll show you the author’s basic description from her website:

A brilliant young FBI agent. An unpredictable international art thief. What happens next is quite possibly not what you’d expect.

Shadow of the Templar is the story of Simon Drake and Jeremy Archer, two men on opposite sides of the law, and the tenuous relationship they manage to forge and maintain in the face of hopeless odds.

Let me start by saying that this is one of the best fanworks I’ve found on the internet. It’s not perfect (the author admits so herself, in the annotated editions of each novel that she’s currently working on which you should not read unless you’ve read the plain versions first), but they’re good reads that will have you hooked until the very last page.

Anyway, I’m going to make a non-spoilery list of what I like about this series, and hopefully that will convince you to go read it on your own. Feel free to reblog this if you like what you read ^.^

  • Do you watch USA’s White Collar? Shadow of the Templar is basically what happens if Neal and Peter decide they’d like to get to know each other better in the horizontal position.
  • Team shenanigans! Yeah, in a series that’s basically about the non-relationship between a cocky FBI agent and a brilliant art thief, one of my favorite parts of the whole series is the antics between Simon’s team. They’re a dysfunctional family, and it shows in every interaction. (Nate is my favorite <3)
  • Building off the above, the banter. There is some great banter between all of the main cast, between Simon and all the members of his team, between Simon and Jeremy, and between Jeremy and the team.
  • The non-relationship between Simon and Jeremy. It’s perfect. It’s not sappy at all. They’ll break your heart on numerous occasions because of how stupid or stubborn they are, but the moments that do count will make your heart ache. Both men are completely believable, both hate talking about feelings, both come with the baggage of their jobs, and they both do some terrible things to each other, but they keep coming back. Or do they? Mwha ha ha!
  • The extras. There’s a community on Livejournal for “announcements, exclusive previews, fanworks, and discussion.” There’s a bunch of continuations for the author’s ‘fade to black’ sex scenes, and she’s also putting up a bunch of ‘deleted scenes’ for the whole series. (There’s also a page on TVTropes, which will have spoilers, but if you’re curious to know some more specifics before you start reading, check it out.)
  • There’s a subtle build up of plot throughout the first three books that all come to head during the last one, and it is glorious. It takes everything you knew, throws it all on its ears, and wraps it up in an emotional ending that I just love to bits. I wish I could say more but, lest I spoil everyone, I cannot. You’ll just have to read it. Everything is wrapped up nicely at the end, and what isn’t, the author has written or is in the process of writing many short scenes and stories that fit in the universe and make me squee. You will not be disappointed, I promise.

So, yeah. You all should go check it out so I have other people to squee with!

Since I can’t put any of my thoughts into a post, this will do!
PLEASE READ THIS and if it seems like something you think you might like, read it! You won’t regret anything

Reblogging because it’s that time again. Also, taking off the gif because it’s big and flashy but noting that there was a gif there. :)

Also, there’s some warnings: there’s some salty and definitely not PC language used in this series, especially the F word, and in the second book there’s a VERY ooky sex scene. It’s not non-con, but it’s… ooky.
