Publisher's Summary

An untested group of Shield-Brethren initiates stand before the sprawling Mongol army in a bloody circus of sadistic violence, while a hardened company of their finest roam the desolate wasteland of the Mongol empire, wrapping their dead in blood-soaked soil and struggling to find the strength to fight even as they mourn. The warrior-monks, both in the East and the West, sharpen their swords for a final battle. The Khan of Khans must be slain if Christendom is to survive.
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.

This Book Rocks

Would you listen to The Mongoliad: The Foreworld Saga, Book 3 again? Why?

Yes: the book is starts at great tempo and finishes with a bang I think the only down point is that the next book will need to bow this one away.


P.S. if you like Luke Daniels this is for you.


Who was your favorite character and why?

Gansukh: the way he learns to live in both worlds


What does Luke Daniels bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He makes you feel like you are the character and just makes you feel welcome

Looooong trilogy. And kinda flat ending.

Would you try another book from the authors and/or Luke Daniels?

I gather there are some more books following this one, but don't intend to continue.


What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

This is a loooong trilogy, and that's coming from someone who quite enjoyed Stephenson's Quicksilver trilogy. The Mongoliad makes the Quicksilver trilogy look simple and concisely written. There are interesting characters and stories being told, but even so it gets really slow going and felt like an epic achievement to make it through to the end. And the end itself is highly disappointing too, just fizzles out. So although some of the characters were interesting and I liked the way both sides were sympathetic instead of having cookie-cutter baddies and goodies, I really don't think the effort to get through the trilogy was worth it.
