Amazon Review- A total thrill ride!

5.0 out of 5 stars A total thrill ride!August 3, 2013

I've always had a fascination with ancient Mongol history and this historical fiction hooked me within the first page. Genghis Khan was supposedly buried in an unmarked tomb filled with fabulous wealth and artifacts, and this story tells the tale of Kate Barrows, the paleontologist who is out looking for fossils and discovers an ancient child’s bow instead. Instead of a dinosaur, she’s stumbled upon the lost tomb of one of the most legendary leaders of ancient times. Almost immediately Russian and Chinese troops appear along the Mongolian border, and the race is on to see who can lay claim to the treasure. The drama that ensues is on par with the old Indiana Jones movies, full of thrills and adventure. Hickland does a fantastic job of keeping the history alive and accurate while delivering a tale of intrigue and mystery. The characters are well developed and exciting, and the plot offers up loads of action and adventure, as well as a bit of romance. A total thrill ride all the way to the last page!

The latest 5***** Amazon Review- "Incredibly enjoyable"

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredibly enjoyable August 26, 2013

Michael Hickland's `The Guardian of Genghis Khan's Tomb' is one of the best, if not the definite best historical fiction title I have seen in a year. Of course, it had me at "Genghis Khan" and "massive amounts of lost treasure." If you're a fan of Clive Cussler or even Dan Brown, then you're in for an awesome treat with Hickland's book.

At the heart of this book is the story about a great conqueror and his legendary treasure. Genghis Khan struck fear in the hearts of his enemies in his lifetime, and he has since continued to inspire awe and fascination even centuries after his death. The rumors about the lost treasure reverberated across the fusty centuries, but the treasure was never found. That is, until paleontologist Kate Barrows and serendipity enter the picture. Looking for dinosaur fossils in Mongolia, Barrows instead stumbles into an artifact that points to the presumably nearby presence of Genghis Khan's treasure. But as it turns out, the governments of Russia and China fiercely covet the treasure for themselves, and the ensuing conflict and race to find the treasure pushes the world to the brink of a large-scale war. Add the fact that Barrows's financial backer, Drew Moss, used to be a Navy SEAL and still has strong connections with the higher echelons of the US government, and he and his men are not going to stand on the sidelines and let others dip their hands in the golden cookie jar.

Written in a heart-racing but delicious pace, Hickland's `The Guardian of Genghis Khan's Tomb' is immensely enjoyable and one that will literally compel you to keep turning the pages.

"An Unforgettable Tale!"-New Amazon 5 Star Review

5.0 out of 5 stars
 An Unforgettable Tale! August 8, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Amazon Verified Purchase
I am sure that many of us have had the fantasy of finding buried treasure, and not just for the treasure itself, but for the adventure or maybe even the fame. This book gives you all of that and more as the author tells a tale of adventure and danger all while adding a good dose of ancient Mongol history. To be the main character, Kate Barrows can be reckoned to Indiana Jones searching for a lost tomb. That in itself would make this book a really good read, but the author adds world superpower confrontation and that really makes things interesting. It's a thrilling story that will keep you reading until it's over. It's a very easy story to get lost in and spend an afternoon with. The book is intelligently written and is a treat for your mind. I really like the way the author brings his characters to light and allows the reader to engage with them and "feel" the story. This is a perfect book for any history buff or avid treasure hunter as it will provide both an adventure and history lesson in the process. This is a must read for anyone interested in this genre.

Another 5 Star Review on Amazon

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic historical fiction! March 25, 2013
By mariey
Michael Hickland's 'The Guardian of Genghis Khan's Tomb' is an absolutely amazing work of historical fiction. For me, this book delivered in every way. The story begins by giving the premise of Genghis Khan and his acquisition of treasure and proceeds to give a short lead in to the present situation. Kate Barrows travels from England funded by Drew Moss of the US to Mongolia in search of ancient bones. Instead, she finds the discovery of a life time in that of the tomb of the great Genghis Khan. The task won't be a simple one though because Russia and China are set on getting the treasure. With these 3 major world powers after a single goal, it leads to a fast paced non-stop action thriller that I absolutely loved. With all the action, adventure, plot twists, and even a bit of romance, this books ranks as my favorite among historical fiction. With Michael's writing style, you can't help but be drawn into this journey from the very first paragraph and your curiosity won't be satiated until you get to an impeccable ending.
