Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It is the spring of 1241. The Mongol takeover of Europe is almost complete. The hordes commanded by the sons of Genghis Khan have swept out of their immense grassy plains and ravaged Russia, Poland, and Hungary ... and now seem poised to sweep west to Paris and south to Rome. King and Pope and peasant alike face a bleak future--until a small band of warriors, inheritors of a millennium-old secret tradition, conceive of a desperate plan to kill the Khan of Khans.Their leader, an elder of the order of warrior monks, will lead his elite group on a perilous journey into the East. They will be guided by an elusive and sharp-witted young woman, who believes the master's plan is insane. But this small band is the West's last, best hope to turn back the floodtide of the Mongol Empire.

Review:

"Stephenson (Snow Crash) and Bear (Blood Music) team up with an array of cross-genre and cross-platform storytellers to deliver an outstanding historical epic with exceptional character development and vivid world building. Begun in 2010 on various digital platforms, this collaborative project-the first book in the Mongoliad Trilogy, which itself is a part of the Foreworld Saga-is heavy on mysticism, dangerous journeys, and exciting hand-to-hand-combat. As Onghwe Khan, grandson of Genghis, sets his sights on Eastern Europe, a group of knights and warrior monks fight back and formulate a desperate plan to assassinate the current Khagan ('the Khan of Khans'), Ögedei, in a bid to send his sons scrambling back to the heart of the Mongol Empire to claim their dead father's throne. In addition to the heroic battles-including swordfights, archery, wrestling, and martial arts-romance, political intrigue, and promises of betrayal and rebellion are suffused throughout this cinematic tale. Having introduced plenty of plot threads and characters, Stephenson and Bear & co. have set the bar high for the series. "
