Author and Historian 

“Malloy makes an impressive fiction debut, mixes history and fantasy with flair and delivers a wonderfully satisfying puzzler.”  --Publisher’s Weekly “Throughout the book, Malloy's use of medieval tales, the Knights Templar history, ancient artifacts, and naval history deftly guide the reader deeper into the character and her motivations. As she solves one mystery, another one looms larger and more terrifying, eradicating any chance of reprieve from the tension. This novel itself reads like a seafaring voyage--full of swift turns, unknown frontiers and the desire to answer the big questions we all ask ourselves." --Foreward Magazine
