    1. Audiobook from Brilliance AudioNarrated by Luke DanielsLength: 13.25 hoursWhen I reviewed The Mongoliad: Book Three in the Foreworld Saga, I didn't realize that there were to be a 4th and 5th entry into the series. The book ended with the end of a major story arc (if not the most satisfying of endings) and I thought it was okay to leave it there.But the story didn't end there. Where the story in the first three books in the series really covered the story of the Christians versus the Mongols, th [...]


    2. In last books in the series and also in side quest stories new elements of godly intervention is brought into story and it makes this adventure story more diverse and interesting. Also Estonian locations and peasants are used in this book as there ais battle on the shores of Peipsi lake :)



    3. "Katabasis" is one of the 2 much-needed sequels to "The Mongoliad". For those unwary buyers: "The Mongoliad" may appear to be a simple trilogy, but be warned- very few plot threads are actually fully resolved by the end of volume 3. "Katabasis" does a solid job fixing that. The plot lines of the Shield-Brethren, the Mongol warrior Gansukh, as well as the Livonian Kristaps all get resolved with fairly impressive finality. Many characters get a send-off, a few get happy endings. I actually enjoyed [...]


    4. My favorite so far in the Foreworld saga. While originally intended as a trilogy, this continuation picked up right where book 3 left off. So a reader definitely needs to read the others first. Katabasis sticks to the more enjoyable story-lines, following 2 packs of Shield Brethren/Maidens and a few of our favorite Mongols. We also get a glimpse into the Holy Roman Empire bumping up against ancient Russia (Rus). This one solidifies my goal to close out Forworld and read the remaining novel and n [...]


    5. Not an Enjoyable BookWay to many subplots. Very confusing. I gave up after trying to make sense of the first 58 percent of the book.


    6. The change of writers is noticeable, but still a fun read, hence 4 instead of 5 stars. It continues where the previous book ended and resolves a few plot lines, along with adding a few new characters


    7. OK. So, Book Four of The Mongoliad series by Neal Stephenson et al, except now Neal Stephenson is not listed as an author. hmmBut we continue:Synopsis: the broad story/theme of the Mongol invasion of Europe continues, as does Stephenson's practice of incorporating overarching themes (here, the idea that there was an indigenous spirituality in Europe prior to the spread of Christianity -- really an invasion of its own -- outward from Rome). We have several sub-points-of-view: the Mongols, both th [...]


    8. What to say about this book? I was, initially, very excited to find this book as Book 3 had ended in a very Neal-Stephenson-esque cliffhanger. Further, this book seemed to do away with the Rome storyline that I didn't like as much as the others. My excitement was tempered somewhat when I saw that Neal hadn't written any of this book, but I figured it would be ok. OK is how I felt about the book. It certainly lacked something that made the first three installments so memorable for me. Maybe it wa [...]


    9. Well, we're moving along. Plots are coming together, and I have hope that the last book will resolve them, thank the gods. It seems that I can't actually pinpoint any sections that are unnecessary in the sense that all the text moves things along, but hundreds of pages of text are used to move character or thing A in a position so it can be used by group B at a much further time C. They're lucky they actually make use of it all, because there's so much to read and I just never would have started [...]


    10. It had more action than book 3, therefore there was less drag in the story line. However, when I finished it I saw there was a book 5. No. I cannot continue this series. In the series, each book is written by multiple authors. I did not find this a problem at first. However, in this book two of the main characters just disappeared. Percival walked into camp never to be mentioned again. Cnan was mentioned briefly in the epilogue, however, the other was not. Nor were his "visions" ever tied into t [...]


    11. The tales of the Mongoliad Cycle continue. The Shield Brethren completed their impossible task and now Europe is saved, temporarily, as the Mongol hordes return to their homeland to choose the next Khagan, Khan of Khans. The focus shifts to the battle for the souls of Rus (Russia) as the Roman Church attempts to wrench control from the Eastern church. There is more mysticism as the elements of the Old Religion meet the new one and both are embodied in the Shield Brethren; much of the new is laid [...]


    12. I went into this fourth book in the series with some trepidation since Stehpenson and Bear were not a part of it. but I was pleasantly surprised to find that I didn't really miss them all that much. The characters and plotlines had already been developed. The remaining authors are all good writers in their own ways. I found myself enjoying this book as much as the previous three. The plot lines that continue are all well developed. The pacing is excellent. Many of the story lines started in the [...]


    13. This book was pretty good.Although it doesn't pick up any of the threads from the politics of the aftermath of selecting a new pope or the deal of what may be the Holy Grail, it does finish out the after affects of what was the beginning of the previous triology of book and focuses mainly on those characters. Most of their stories are tied up nicely even while one final battle is built to. And what has become the norm for the Foreworld saga, a bit of supernaturalism is added to the mix, with and [...]


    14. I read this book because the third book in the Mongoliad cycle seemed to end a bit abruptly, with some of the story lines unfinished. I did not think this book was quite up to the caliber of The Mongoliad. I am glad the the storyline relating to the Shield Brethren was continued, but the final battle in this book was a bit of a let down. With all the hinting towards Norse mythology and the World Tree, I hoped that would be more relevant. The fighting in Russia also seemed a bit forced, like it d [...]


    15. In the first three books in this series, a group of characters set out on a great quest and reach its end. In this, the fourth book, the characters' lives in the aftermath of that undertaking are explored, as they make the long journey home and encounter others left behind on the way.The book takes the characters home through the steppes of Russia, devastated by the Mongol horde and now threatened by invasion by powers sent from Rome. Alexander Nevsky is a character in the book and its climax is [...]


    16. Even after I long break between Books 3 & 4 I found it easy to get back into the series. While I would have been satisfied with the series stopping with The Mongoliad, it was nice to see the story continued. I will certainly continue on with Book 5.In this book, I especially enjoyed the bits with Alexander Nevsky since I'm not familiar with his life. It's inspired me to read up and watch Sergei Eisenstein's famous movie.


    17. Rather uninspired. Pages are devoted to tedious build up, only for time to randomly advance. This is book four and only the unwillingness to abandon a series so far in will get me to read the fifth. It does truly feel like the project is only half heartedly being finished and it reminds me of the failed Clang project (also by Stephenson): interesting in concept but not a strong enough purpose to truly accomplish anything


    18. Great continuation of this story! The characters and settings all feel so authentic that the story feels like history rather than fiction. The story in this novel is less focused on the Mongols and more focused on the nuances between the different knights. Wee bit of mysticism weaved in and it makes for an action packed plot.Really solid showing for the fourth installment. Looking forward to the next in the series.


    19. Love this series of books!The history is well researched, the characters are compelling. The books carry you back to an amazing timethat people today never think about but that were deeply dangerous to be alive in. My only complaint is that the battle scenes go on and on and on. They are extremely well written, but unless someone is a medieval martial reconstructions they may begin to start skipping through those scenes after a while.


    20. This instalment in the series was justok. It's difficult to reboot an adventure once to primary story arc is complete, and I felt that this didn't get up to speed evenly or quickly at all. Some of the important characters were flat or barely mentioned, though I understand a few will be the focus of the final book. The Kristaps/Illirion storyline though was excellent. The lake was a great setting.


    21. The best one so far!this continuation of the story is the best so far! I only hope that there is more to come. I felt a part of their lives and when I finished the last page of this book I felt a sadness and was loath to close the book. as though I had been with them from the beginning and now they were saying goodbye. I await further news of them.


    22. Katabasis weaves together threads not just from the previous three Mongoliad books, but also some of the Foreworld Sidequests and mroe than a few online discussions to craft a compelling and entertaining story. Do yourself a favor; pick up this tightly-written book and find out "what happens next" after you kill the leader of the Mongol Empire.


    23. I had a book of scary stories about Baba Yaga when I was a kid, and have been fascinated with her ever since, but have rarely encountered even references to her. This story tapped that old reservoir and filled it nicely. The main characters all seemed a little more real to me in the wake of the prior fantastic quest, which made this episode enjoyable in a mellower but deeper way.


    24. Entertaining, to say the least. Not for those who are impatient readersFun read intertwining old Norse sagas with Eastern European fairy tales and set in the background of the tumultuous 13th century. For history and sword buffs, a great read. For others, it may be a bit boring. I loved it. A true part of a saga


    25. Highly enjoyable follow up to the Foreworld Saga. I was a bit apprehensive with the omission of Stephenson and Bear in the authorship of this one but it was very good and quite well written. Maybe a few less authors helped in fact. If you liked the Foreworld Saga you will enjoy this.


    26. Excellent storyline, great series. This did not diappoint. Followed the story of Feronantus, Raphael, Yasper, Illarion, Istaven, Cnan, Vera and Percivel (the good guys) - Alciq and Gansukh (the Mongols) - Kristaps (the bad guy). The end the books well, but leave you hungry for more.


    27. Disclaimer: I received this book from a first-read giveaway.I was admittedly a little confused jumping in at the fourth book in the series but it was surprisingly easy to catch on! I'm really looking forward to going back and reading the other books in this series, now.


    28. I was pleasantly surprised at how engaging the story was given the full conclusion reached at the end of the last book. If you enjoyed the first three of these books then I am sure you will enjoy this one equally.More please!


    29. History &religion revisitedFast and interesting reading fascinating interpretation of historic events clouded by religious magicWarmly recommended reading that won't be dissapoonting
