In the late 19th century, a mysterious group of English martial arts aficionados provided Sir Richard F. Burton, well-known expert on exotic languages and historical swordsmanship, a collection of long-lost manuscripts to translate. Burton's work was subsequently misplaced, only to be discovered by a team of amateur archaeologists in the ruins of a mansion in Treiste.

From Burton's translations and the original source material, the epic tale of The Mongoliad was recreated. The story chronicles the journey of a small band of warriors and mystics as they fight to save Europe from the Mongol invasion of the thirteenth century. It also exposes the secret workings of powerful clandestine societies that have been driving world events for millennia.

This fascinating and enthralling first novel in The Mongoliad trilogy fuses historical events with a gripping fictional narrative. Co-written by Neal Stephenson, Greg Bear, E. D. deBirmingham, Mark Teppo, Joseph Brassey, Erik Bear, and Cooper Moo, The Mongoliad: Book One is an unforgettable epic.

    " Historically entertaining and accurate in all the small details. I had picked the book up because people said it was similar to an epic fantasy yet I could still satisfy my nerdy brain with historical tidbits. Well, I wouldn't go that far. If you like fantasy quests you probably won't put this down but you won't love it; I don't foresee anyone staying up late into the night to devour it. I found the ancient terminology slightly distracting. The authors switch from ancient norse to korean, latin, and then using 13th century names for places? Get outta here. People like common reference points. When they finally said Kiev, I threw down my ancient atlas and said finally! The authors should have done small background blibs in the beginning rather than wait until the last half of the book to unfurl so much of the back story, or at least at the beginning please explain all these various crusader factors (of which we only got a small morsel). "

    " This is a good book, plenty of action and a rare learning experience about the crusade era. I enjoyed this read even if I did need a dictionary nearby to understand some of it. The problem is I don't like cliff-hangers. Since this is a major cliff-hanger. I took away 2 stars. "
