With bonus material! This Kindle edition features extra content only found in the Collector’s Edition of The Mongoliad: Book One, including an illustrated character glossary, a Foreworld map, and Sinner, a prequel to the Mongoliad series.

The first novel to be released in The Foreworld Saga, The Mongoliad: Book One, is an epic-within-an-epic, taking place in 13th century. In it, a small band of warriors and mystics raise their swords to save Europe from a bloodthirsty Mongol invasion. Inspired by their leader (an elder of an order of warrior monks), they embark on a perilous journey and uncover the history of hidden knowledge and conflict among powerful secret societies that had been shaping world events for millennia.

But the saga reaches the modern world via a circuitous route. In the late 19th century, Sir Richard F. Burton, an expert on exotic languages and historical swordsmanship, is approached by a mysterious group of English martial arts aficionados about translating a collection of long-lost manuscripts. Burton dies before his work is finished, and his efforts were thought lost until recently rediscovered by a team of amateur archaeologists in the ruins of a mansion in Trieste, Italy. From this collection of arcana, the incredible tale of The Mongoliad was recreated.

Full of high adventure, unforgettable characters, and unflinching battle scenes, The Mongoliad ignites a dangerous quest where willpower and blades are tested and the scope of world-building is redefined.

A note on this edition: The Mongoliad began as a social media experiment, combining serial story-telling with a unique level of interaction between authors and audience during the creative process. Since its original iteration, The Mongoliad has been restructured, edited, and rewritten under the supervision of its authors to create a more cohesive reading experience and will be published as a trilogy of novels. This edition is the definitive edition and is the authors' preferred text.

Very absorbing

A very good read, stories flowed well and were very interesting. Enter eating character plots. A good insight on a period in history which usually describes the Mongols as rampaging across Europe destroying everything and everyone they come across, this story expands on that theme believably.

Too many cooks, perhaps

Somewhat jumbled, by perhaps, to many contributory writers, nevertheless, this is a never less than interesting story. Bloody action involving some well crafted characters really do grip the attention of the reader. Yet, the constant character changes can be very disorienting.

What a great book

Yes great read but went to buy 2nd book and can’t. Very annoying!

Pretty much non stop action

This book apparently derives from an online collaborative project and represents the authors’ refining and consolidating of the narrative from that project. Not having previously been aware of that work, I won’t comment on how faithful it is, or on the differences between the two media (there are interesting comments on this in some of the other reviews).
