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 the shattered Holy Roman Church as the cardinals remain deadlocked, unable to choose a new pope. Only the Binders and a mad priest have a hope of uniting the Church against the invading Mongol host. An untested band of young warriors stands against the dissolute Khan, fighting for glory and freedom in the Khan’s sadistic circus of swords, and the brave band of Shield-Brethren who set out to stop the Mongol threat single-handedly race against their nemesis before he can raise the entire empire against them. Veteran knight Feronantus, haunted by his life in exile, leads the dwindling company of Shield-Brethren to their final battle, molding them into a team that will outlast him. No good hero lives forever…or fights alone.

A sweeping historical interpretation of the battle for Europe against the invading Mongols and their ruthless Khan, The Mongoliad: Book Three brings the epic adventures of the Shield-Brethren to a brutal and thrilling conclusion.

    " The long slow setup of the last installment was worth it for this one. All the story lines are mostly wrapped up; I say mostly because, even though I thought this was the concluding installment, there are plenty of loose ends for additional installments. I know they are writing additional stories in this universe so maybe they will tie up some of those dangles later. This installment is where they really depart from real history into this alternate universe as far as events are concerned. They had introduced mystical elements previously and they become more prominent in this installment. I've found the whole series very interesting and even though it is an alternate universe there is much good historical content. This is a very important point in history where Europe discovers there is much more to the world than their small portion and the very earliest beginnings of modern warfare show its ugly head. As I've said in reviews of the earlier stories there is great detail in the fight scenes; the horror of fighting with bladed weapons is evident, and the depictions of western martial arts are some of the best I've read in fiction. "

    " I was pleased with how the series wrapped up. Towards the end, I found myself feeling like I was reading the transcript of someone's epic Dungeons and Dragons campaign, but it scratched an itch. The best part here was that I was never really sure how things would go down: who would live, who would die, who would be successful, who wouldn't. Even knowing more or less what happened in the actual historical events (which I had already looked up, out of curiosity) didn't resolve how the authors were going to adapt the book to fit them. All-in-all, I found it satisfying, though the level of its depth was limited. "

    " I didn't figure there was another 800 pages in this story. Some of it is boring read, the fight sequences improving it overall. Predictably unpredictable ending, maybe getting ready for Book 4? "

    " The best of this generally disappointing and just-better-than-mediocre trilogy - mainly because it ties up the story lines in a swashbuckling action-packed way. (You would have to read the first two books for this one to make sense.) "
