The final book of the Mongoliad trilogy from Neal
Stephenson and company tells the gripping personal stories of medieval freedom
fighters to form an epic, imaginative recounting of a moment in history when a
world in peril relied solely on the courage of its people.
The shadow of Holy Roman Emperor Frederick II hangs over
