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

The final book of the Mongoliad trilogy from Neal Stephenson and company, tells the gripping personal stories of medieval freedom fighters to form an epic, imaginative recounting of a moment in history when a world in peril relied solely on the courage of its people.

The shadow of Holy Roman Emperor Frederick II hangs over the shattered Holy Roman Church as the cardinals remain deadlocked, unable to choose a new pope. Only the Binders and a mad priest have a hope of uniting the Church against the invading Mongol host. An untested band of young warriors stands against the dissolute Khan, fighting for glory and freedom in the Khan’s sadistic circus of swords, and the brave band of Shield-Brethren who set out to stop the Mongol threat single-handedly race against their nemesis before he can raise the entire empire against them. Veteran knight Feronantus, haunted by his life in exile, leads the dwindling company of Shield-Brethren to their final battle, molding them into a team that will outlast him. No good hero lives forever. Or fights alone.

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.

Enraptured by the entire trilogy. Didn’t want it to end. Should be a movie or a series. Surely there is more to come??

More excellent stories on medieval fighting, politics, friendship, honour….

The mongols have a vast empire, but cracks are showing. Their Khan doesn’t cope well with life as an emperor, with a big court and administration, he drinks. He tries to reconnect with the spirit of his ancestors by going on a hunt for the great bear. The young warrior who suggested it was sent by his brother to help him, but can he break through court politics, intrigues, the Khan’s depression, or will he be caught and ground down in this net?

An excellent conclusion to the alternate history epic…

I have now read all three of this series, and have found them very enjoyable. They are interesting from a historical perspective, but with added bonus of gripping actions sequences which would appear to be very detailed and I am sure historically acurate. The plotting is quite complex and cover four separate story lines, but it is well worth the effort to get into the books.

This third part of the trilogy is much, much longer than the second, but moves at a similar pace, with the story focus split between the same, small groups of characters. We do however, get a lot more answers in this part and parties start to intersect and finally meet in conflict.

The Foreworld saga continues but to what end?

Having thankfully read Books 1 and 2, this complex universe takes a step forward through multiple stories and storylines. It has become almost too complex, with me nearly sighing with joy when there is an interconnecting thread between storylines discovered. There is very little hint at resolution and a part of me is minded by the online gaming worlds: if you had a scribe to tell of every adventure of a die hard gamer, it would be something like this, ongoing adventures making up quests that would be threads of the main line of the story.
