The authors have also done a wonderful job of bringing the world they are describing to life. There is an air of verisimilitude about everything that leaves you little doubt as to the historical accuracy of their descriptions of not only life during the era described but the behaviour of the characters as well. From the descriptions of the armour worn by the knights, individual fighting styles, to the various personality traits of the characters, everything rings true.
As an early instalment in Foreworld Saga series, The Mongoliad: Book One is only the first book of a trilogy that promises to be not only an incredibly complex and involved saga, but also intelligent and well written--and a lot of fun as well. The characters are intriguing, the plots interesting and complex without being convoluted, and the fighting and descriptions of battle scenes realistic and exciting while not shirking from describing the more brutal truths of the horrible things humans are capable of doing to each other. In other words this has all the characteristics of being a must-read series in the making. Lets hope it can keep the pace up.
