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.
