Fusing historical events with
a gripping fictional narrative, this first book in the Mongoliad trilogy
reveals a secret history of Europe in the thirteenth century. As the Mongols
swept across Asia and were poised to invade Europe in 1241, a small band of
warriors, inheritors of an ancient secret tradition, conceived a desperate plan
to stop the attack. They must kill the Khan of Khans; if they fail, all of
Christendom will be destroyed.
In the late nineteenth
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—the lost
chronicles of this desperate fight to save Europe. Burton’s translations were
lost, until a team of amateur archaeologists discovered them in the ruins of a
mansion in Trieste. From the translations and from the original source
material, the epic tale of The Mongoliad was recreated. Download and start listening now!
