Dennis Miller said If you enjoy really well researched historical fiction, then this book is for you!. I just finished all three stories. I bought them because Neal Stephenson was involved- The Cryptonomicon , Reamde and Snowcrash are some of the very finest fiction I've read in a VERY long time. Master level work!The Mongoliad was good but not up to that level. However if you enjoy really well researched historical fiction, and/or if you're interested in Knights in Armor, or Mongol hordes, then this book is for you!.

If I could just sit down and read this book straight through in one sitting, this wouldn't be an issue for me. (I wish I had the free time to do this lol). Amazon Customer said Four Stars. this book can be a bit difficult to read.

The story is set in the thirteenth century, during the Mongol invasion of Europe, and focuses on a group of warrior-monks, the Shield-Brethren, who are desperately fighting for their own survival and the survival of their way of life—and that’s a serious simplification of this sprawling, character-rich, action-packed epic that’s part history, part alternate history, part fantasy, part martial-arts saga. From Booklist Those who read The Mongoliad in its original incarnation as an online serial will note some differences in the print version. It would definitely help to have read Book One firs
