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.

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!

Having read many self-published books, I can tell you that it is a very hit and miss experience. This is one of those books that only comes around every so often and really takes you by surprise at just how good it is.
This book is a little bit "Raiders of the Lost Ark" and a little bit "Da Vinci Code" with lots of great action sequences, suspense, and twists that constantly keep you guessing.
The author, Michael Hickland, has done a fantastic job at creating memorable characters and situations in what appears to be his first e-book. I'm really looking forward to his next one.

Highly recommended.

I don't read historical fiction books too often but this book was worth it. It wasn't completely set in the past but mainly with references to the past. I especially loved the climactic ending that you wouldn't expect. The characters and plot were well done. One thing I did notice though is some of the paragraphs were indented while most others weren't. If that can be fixed to be uniform then it will take away that distraction. Because of that, I can only give this book 4.5 out of 5 stars. Nevertheless, if you have some spare time and are looking for a good read, then this book is for you.

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.

Michael B. Hickland's "The Guardian of Genghis Khan" is a historical fiction that will have you on the edge of your seat the entire time. The story springboards off the fact that Genghis Khan's tomb, rumored to be filled with wealth, has not been found. However, when a young English scientist discovers an ancient artifact that is linked to Genghis Khan, the world's most powerful countries begin a desperate search. Throw into the mix an ancient guardian of the tomb, stemming from an ancient oath, and then add politics and action and you have the novel. Hickland does an excellent job writing in a way that captures the history, action, adventure, and excitement of the novel. The characters are engaging and dynamic, my favorite being the scientist Kate Barrows. The plot is paced well, reaching a dramatic conclusion that I could have never anticipated. "The Guardian of Genghis Khan's Tomb" is a must-read for anyone who enjoys a good story with a historical backdrop.
