About This Book

Martin is one of a handful of Templar Knights to escape when the king of France and the pope conspire to destroy the noble order. The king aims to frame the Templars for heresy, execute all of them, and make off with their legendary treasure. That's the plan, anyway, but Martin and several other surviving knights mount a counter-campaign to regain the lost treasure of the Knights Templar.

With gorgeous illustrations by LeUyen Pham and Alexander Puvilland and lush coloring from Hilary Sycamore, this 480-page, full-color, hardcover graphic novel by Jordan Mechner is itself a treasure.

    Prince of Persia

    Prince of Persia
    Just in time for the summer blockbuster movie, “the Prince’s most epic journey yet.”—XBOX Magazine   Journey deeper into the legend—an epic adventure steeped in ancient Persian lore—the tale of a prince from a distant land outside of time.   The huge Disney movie adaptation of The Prince of Persia— helmed by Jerry Bruckheimer and starring Jake Gyllenhaal—is sure to make many new fans for the swashbuckling Prince. For all of them, First Second offers a new edition of our graphic novel tale of the Prince of Persia, which Booklist describes (in a starred review) as “a book that’s even better with repeat readings.” Here is the story behind the games, the legend, and the man—a tale of magic and destiny.

    Solomon's Thieves

    Solomon's Thieves
    On the run from the law . . . in 14th century France   Life as a Templar Knight returning from the Crusades is dull— bread, beans, and lots and lots of walking. But after Martin stumbles upon his lost love (now married—to someone else), things begin to get more interesting very quickly. There’s a vast conspiracy afoot to destroy the Templar Order and steal their treasure. Soon, Martin finds himself one of the only Templars out of prison—and out for revenge!   A swashbuckling story of betrayal, adventure, and an epic swindle, Solomon’s Thieves is the first volume in a trilogy written by Jordan Mechner (the creator of the acclaimed Prince of Persia video games) and illustrated by LeUyen Pham and Alex Puvilland.
