With this four-handed thriller, Eric Giacometti and Jacques Ravenne plunge the reader into the mysteries of the Order of the Temple while embarking on the revolutionary world of quantum computers.
NOTWe are in 1229. The Sixth Crusade is about to end. Three more will follow. For now, the mystical emperor Frederick II must strengthen his power, especially since the pope excommunicated him. In Bethlehem, the monotheistic religious dignitaries, joined by Templars and knights of the Teutonic order, held a session. But the meeting turns into a nightmare: a mysterious organization assassinates the entire assembly, with the exception of a Muslim and a Templar.
After The Grail Empire Where The Seventh TemplarEric Giacometti and Jacques Ravenne again immerse us in the depths of the Middle Ages this time to find a secret held by the Knights Templar.
“Our specialty, to telescope the past and the present thanks to the great esoteric mysteries. By avoiding the pitfall of conspiracy. That of the Templars remains the most fascinating. »
In search of a lost book
To maintain faith and passion, religions have long fed on esoteric myths. With The Lost Kingdom, the quest for mysteries, secrets and chimeras takes shape again today, when a powerful start-up specializing in quantum research contacts the Freemason policeman Antoine Marcas – a recurring hero in the novels by Giacometti and Ravenna – so that he can find an apocryphal text. This story, the real Book of Enoch, was held by the Templars and would carry an immemorial secret. A secret that could have prodigious scientific applications.
The great esoteric myths
Prolific duo whose collaboration began in 2005 with The Shadow RitualGiacometti and Ravenna excel in the art of making us travel through time as much as taking us for a walk, from Paris to Jerusalem, in the twists and turns of a breathless investigation. The Lost Kingdom is, like curator Marcas’s series, the fruit of in-depth historical research, of an erudition that is never off-putting, because it is restored through a living narrative. “Our success, our specialty, is to telescope past and present through the great esoteric myths while avoiding the pitfall of conspiracy. That of the Templars remains one of the most fascinating for the creators of fiction that we are. What is the relationship between the Baphomet, the mysterious idol of the knights of the temple and artificial intelligence? The reader will discover this as the story unfolds…”, explains Jacques Ravenne.
The quantum computer, for what purpose?
With this Lost Kingdom, the authors lead a double story, in the Middle Ages and today, with the key to mastering future quantum computers “capable of replacing humans even in their decisions, explains Eric Giacometti, to fight against global warming or to develop formidable weapon systems. France devotes 1.8 billion euros to it, behind China or the United States. Amazon, IBM and Google have created their own research centers. The stakes are just… colossal. »
