Trail of Fate (The Youngest Templar series, Book Two) by Michael Spradlin Here is the exciting sequel to Keeper of the Grail where Tristan and his companions continue to protect the Holy Grail (and where we find out what happened to Tristan after he fell off the ship and was left swimming for his life at the end of the first book!
