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.

Weak story

The performances were excellent. There were lots of interesting characters, good dialogue, and graphic descriptions. A bit to much of the latter. Christians against Mongols was the main theme and it was interesting but, we already know how that turned out. The other stuff, Popes and cardinals, witches and urchins, and warrior nuns, seemed pointless and unrelated. History wise, I come away wondering what to believe. That may be a good thing.

Not Enough Storytelling

I was really disappointed at The Mongoliad series and book 3 was a total let down. Book 1 was awesome, but the two later books was a total waste of time. It seems like Neal Stephenson and company lost focus after writing book 1. I thought that book 3 would never end because all you ever read is the battle and killings. 90% of the story is pure action, where you just get bored with the constant stabbing between the tribes. There is very little plot behind the battles. The election of the new pope was interesting, but the story gets lost in the constant wars. The series just gets tiring to read because its very one sided with way too much action and not enough storytelling. I would read the first book and skip the rest.
