I love Historical fiction adventure stories and I was instantly drawn into the story of `The Guardian of Genghis Khan's tomb". I adore books such as this and this book delivers with a great tale of a powerful leader, his hidden treasure, a ancient protector with three world powers all after the same prize over generations! Great page turning tale! If you like the action and history books of Ken Follett, Dan Brown, Cussler with some Indiana Jones thrown in, you'll love this book.

It isn't a hidden fact that I really enjoy treasure hunt books and movies, that's the only reason I suffered through Nic Cage in National Treasure. All of my friends know that if they even hint at the words treasure hunt, I am in! I have followed the Genghis Khan story since I was a child and have always been interested in it. The fact that someone could amass such a large treasure and conquer so many countries and people, really made it grab my curiosity, and I hear, the curiosity of many tyrants and treasure hunters. When I had heard the someone wrote a historical fiction type book about the story, I had to find it and give it a read. I did learn quite a few things from this book and that is not to take anything away from the story itself which was very well written and had a lot suspense that I think would entertain someone who wasn't fascinated by the history behind the story.
A couple of things that I didn't know about that the author, Michael Hickland, brings to light is the fact that the Mongols were very into Shamanic healing and spirituality, something not normal for nomadic people. And even though the history behind this story is centuries old, the author reminds us how geographically and politically important it is today. Not just for China and Russia for the entire world. The land itself is important and the treasure could really change the face of the superpower structure. All in all, this is a very well written book full of the twists and turns you would expect from any novel in the adventure genre. This is one book that could easily be transitioned to the big screen and attract many movie-goers.

This novel is about an 800-year-old treasure that comes very close to starting a third World War.

In an isolated bit of Mongolia, Genghis Khan buried the spoils from his years of plundering and pillaging across Asia. Over the centuries, many diligent attempts were made to find the treasure, especially during World War II, but without luck.

Kate Barrows is an English paleontologist leading an expedition in present-day Mongolia looking for dinosaur fossils. One day, she stumbles aceoss a very old child's hunting bow, which, through satellite phone calls, is verified to be Khan's childhood bow (the treasure must be somewhere nearby). Russia and China are listening in on the phone calls, so they both amass troops on Mongolia's borders, along with sending "mining equipment" to the area.

Drew Moss, Kate's financial backer and an ex-Navy SEAL, heads to Mongolia with a group of CIA personnel, to take over security for the camp. Kate does not know about Khan's treasure, until now. Attempts are made by Russian and Chinese Special Forces personnel to infiltrate the camp. It becomes a race to see who can first open the underground storehouse. The Americans unearth the front door; of course, Khan thought to include a few booby traps. Who reaches the treasure first? Is World War III prevented?

This one is really good. It has plenty of action and political intrigue. It's plausible, and it's also short, and easy to read. It is very much recommended.

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.

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!
