Description

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.

This Book Rocks

Would you listen to The Mongoliad: The Foreworld Saga, Book 3 again? Why?

Yes: the book is starts at great tempo and finishes with a bang I think the only down point is that the next book will need to bow this one away.


P.S. if you like Luke Daniels this is for you.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Gansukh: the way he learns to live in both worlds

What does Luke Daniels bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He makes you feel like you are the character and just makes you feel welcome

Any additional comments?

This is not a waist of time

Looooong trilogy. And kinda flat ending.

Would you try another book from the authors and/or Luke Daniels?

I gather there are some more books following this one, but don't intend to continue.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

This is a loooong trilogy, and that's coming from someone who quite enjoyed Stephenson's Quicksilver trilogy. The Mongoliad makes the Quicksilver trilogy look simple and concisely written. There are interesting characters and stories being told, but even so it gets really slow going and felt like an epic achievement to make it through to the end. And the end itself is highly disappointing too, just fizzles out. So although some of the characters were interesting and I liked the way both sides were sympathetic instead of having cookie-cutter baddies and goodies, I really don't think the effort to get through the trilogy was worth it.

Great long work.

Would you listen to The Mongoliad: The Foreworld Saga, Book 3 again? Why?

Yes, and probably will after enough time passes.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Mongoliad: The Foreworld Saga, Book 3?

Not any one.

Have you listened to any of Luke Daniels’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Don't know if he narrated the other Mongoloid Foreworld books, but if so, he's quite good.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Not one in particular.

Any additional comments?

Good series. This is the third book of the series I've listened to.

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.

Too many cooks ruin the soup.

I did listen to this entire series. The prequels that were written by one author are quite good, and I looked forward to the series. Listening to the series was like trying to overhear a conversation of many people and know what was being said. It was not concise at all. Luke Daniels performance was excellent as always, but even that could not make up for a loosely stringed together story line.

I got confused

there is too little delineation as this story leaps from one character's perspective to another. I found myself having to go back and re listen on numerous occasions just to figure out where I was and who we were talking about.

Loved it, great work

Fairly clean ending, but they left a few open ends just in case they want to continue the saga

Maybe this is how history really happened.

I love the long stories with the deep characters, the people start to become real and there are just enough references to history that some part of you thinks that this might have just really happened.

Not enough Stephenson

I was hoping for another cerebral, exciting, entertaining adventure like the quicksilver series, but this series keeps devolving to more and more gory fight scenes with little else to keep the plot together. I bought the whole series at once on faith - that was a mistake.
