Product Description

Product 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars absolute reading pleasure 10 Nov 2013

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

I got all of the five available books to go on holiday with because they were cheap and because they sounded epic. They are all very long books but, to date, I've read the first three and I haven't been able to wait for the next one. The story (so far) is based across the whole of Eurasia and is such brilliantly adept story which mingles-in the machinations of the court of the mongols with the machinations of the Catholic church, with the exploits of Templar-like fighters. I've found the books truly interesting, well-written and well worth paying the full price for. Lucky me!!

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.

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

5.0 out of 5 stars Number four in series 26 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
All comments made about the other books in the series apply to this one as well. It fits into the storyline where the other book finished and carries the story forward towards the conclusion in book 5.
