Book Description

The death of the fearsome Ögedei Khan has brought the Mongol invasion of the West to an abrupt halt. Exhausted, plagued by uncertainty and self-doubt, and reeling from betrayal by one of their own, the surviving Shield-Brethren struggle across a frozen, shattered wasteland to return home after their desperate battle in Mongolia.

Their mission is complete—Christendom has been saved—but new and terrible questions haunt each member of the company: Are they heroes or villains? Or just pawns in a larger game, trapped in a world gone mad in the wake of the unspeakable devastation visited upon it by the Mongol horde?

And most poignant of all, where—and what—is “home” now, and what will be their place in the world they fought to defend?

Katabasis, a new novel in the acclaimed Foreworld Saga, follows the survivors as they struggle to confront their own fears and decide who they truly are—and whom they will ultimately serve.

    About the Author

    Joseph Brassey lives in the Pacific Northwest with his wife and two cats. He teaches medieval fighting techniques to members of the armed forces. The Mongoliad is his first published fiction.

    Mark Teppo is the author of the Codex of Souls urban fantasy series as well as the hypertext dream narrative The Potemkin Mosaic.

    Cooper Moo spent five minutes in Mongolia in 1986 before he had to get back on the train—he never expected to be channeling Mongolian warriors. In 2007 Cooper fought a Chinese long-sword instructor on a Hong Kong rooftop—he never thought the experience would help him write battle scenes. In addition to being a member of The Mongoliad writing team, Cooper has written articles for various magazines. His autobiographical piece "Growing Up Black and White," published in the Seattle Weekly, was awarded Social Issues Reporting article of the year by the Society of Professional Journalists. He lives in Issaquah, Washington, with his wife, three children, and numerous bladed weapons.

    Angus Trim is a skilled sword-maker and machinist who lives in the Pacific Northwest. He is adept in various western martial arts as well as tai chi sword form.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Exciting well researched novel 4 Jun. 2014
    By Benioni
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    An extremely interesting story set in 1241AD. which could stand alone but is much better for having been read after the three previous books of the Mongoliad Cycle. The characters have become old "friends, aquaintances and enemies" by the time one comes to book 4. The novel repeatedly forced me to look up names and facts mentioned and held my interest throughout. The battle scenes were somewhat too graphically bloodthirsty for me ( but this didn't stop me reading them!) The descriptions of the bitter cold of the Russion steppes made me shiver and the privations of this small band of knights and the people they "pick up" along the way is interwoven with the lives of the mongols,the Tuetonic Knights and the desires of a greedy cardinal to take over lands for Rome which at present respect the eastern orthodox church.
    In fact each of the series has had me impatiently waiting to sit down and read more at every possible moment and I cannot wait to start Book 5.

    5.0 out of 5 stars absolute reading pleasure 10 Nov. 2013
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    Happily immersed myself in this for several days while sick. An unalloyed delight. Well written with enormously sympathetic characters and a hot Chinese etiquette instructor, epic in scope and historically fascinating

    5.0 out of 5 stars Crashing Finale 1 Jan. 2014
    By Donald Thompson VINE VOICE
    Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
    The Fourth of the Foreworld Saga series brings to an end the story of Ferronantus and his companions as they struggle to reach their home. In the aftermath of the deaths of the 2 of the Great Khans this is how the survivors fight the elements, the geography and their enemies to try and return home. Concentrating this time on only one thread of the story it is tighter and more focused than 2 and 3. In it Ferronantus' obsession with the great Spirit Banner, and it's inherent power, are finally realised. In the final battle scenes the strength of the last Shield Brethren and Shield Maidens are tested in an epic struggle with the Livonians. Is there more to come in this series? Book 3 left many loose ends which could be explored in further stories, but this seems a natural ending.

    5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent read 16 Oct. 2014
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    I read the four books in the cycle straight through with great enjoyment and wonder at the attention to detail in a period of history and part of the world that I knew so little about. An excellent read. Tony H

    More proof that collaborative writers can extend a series in more interesting ways than, perhaps, single writers alone would have done.
