Book Description

Since 1227, finding the Tomb of Genghis Khan has been the obsession of tyrants, adventurers and treasure hunters. 

All have failed to find it.

It is a Genghis Khan fact that, looking at a map today, he had conquered a geographic area which would include 30 countries and 3+ billion people. 
The legend says that, in order to keep his tomb's location secret, Genghis Khan slaughtered hundreds if not thousands of his captives after they had been forced to dig his burial site. He had amassed untold wealth with enormous quantities of jewels, gold and silver from his conquests that are believed to be buried with him. 
So why hasn't his crypt been found in almost eight hundred years?  
In The Guardian of Genghis Khan's Tomb, the Great Conqueror extracts a sacred oath from a special advisor. It binds both this trusted counselor and his family forever to protect the tomb and the most immense treasure ever known.
Now, in a remote Asian river valley, a beautiful English scientist's chance discovery of an ancient artifact tied directly to Genghis Khan ignites a furious race among China, Russia and the United States to find that crypt. The stakes are huge, putting the young woman along with her American sponsor at the center of the confrontation. 
Can The Guardian of Genghis Khan's Tomb manage to keep the gravesite safe and his beloved country, a fledgling democracy, from being overrun? Or will war break out between the world's Superpowers? Michael B. Hickland's e-novel is a fast paced historical fiction thriller full of turns and twists. 

It ends with a conclusion that would stun even the Great Conqueror himself.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very imaginative and thought-provoking. June 18, 2013
By Michele
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I love a book that has the ability to capture my interest within the first few pages. This book did that. I could just imagine Khan as a small boy, going through all of the normal childhood trials and tribulations of that time in addition to his father's death and the rejection of the tribe.

The stories that followed brought a plethora of emotions from sadness, to longing, to happiness and sheer delight. I love the way the author describes certain aspects of the story and brings his characters to life before your mind's eye.

Great story, great character development, great formatting and editing, and attention to detail.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome story about lost treasure! March 17, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A total thrill ride! August 3, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Fast Read! June 17, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I must confess that I didn't know much about Genghis Kahn. One of my teenage son's told me a little about him. I had to find out more about him! I searched the name on Amazon and chose this book.

I'm so glad I read The Guardian of Genghis Kahn's Tomb. This book is a fast-paced read. Once I picked it up, I could not put it down! I know it is historical fiction and I sure hope that the author, Michael B. Hickland, writes another book as I want more!

I highly recommend this book to anyone that likes an intriguing read- ages: from teens to adults.

5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting read! June 10, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Action filled historical fiction May 23, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Genghis Khan died in the 13 century and was buried in an unmarked grave. It's generally believed his tomb contains a large treasure that several countries would love to claim. This is a story of an archeologist that stumbles upon the ruler's tomb and the turmoil that's caused by the discovery. The dangers of recovering the treasure are compounded by ruthless agents from other countries willing to do what ever it takes, and death traps set around the 800 year old tomb.
There's a lot of information in this book and the action keeps you on the edge of your seat.
