Thomas Lankenau has written something that ranks in the alternate history hall of fame. If you love asking yourself "what if" then this is the book for you. Over 1,400 pages (on the Nook) of riveting alternate history in one the most fascinating ideas I could possibly imagine. Definitely get this book.

So well researched, grounded, and connected to real historical situations and characters that the story is both educational and believable. Written as the memoir of a Mongol with Germanic roots, the author fills the story with such details they drive the both the people and their decisions relentlessly forward. Bridges the 14th century from Asia to the American continents with real tribal names, locations, and geography. This book is not for the sci-fi reader. It is dense with facts. The reader must be willing and patient, because the reward will be richly worth the effort. I could hardly wait to find out what would happen next since the second book takes us to the fateful dare, 1492! For me The Raven and The Crow are among my favorite stories.
