The rise of the Mongol
Empire is a great story in its own right. Genghis Khan, known as Temujin in
his boyhood, was the son of a tribal chieftain. After his father's murder,
Temujin was forced out of the tribe along with his brothers and mother,
abandoned to starve on the plains. Yet, he survived, and managed to unite
the disparate Mongol tribes under his leadership, eventually conquering most of
China. The great nation he founded developed into the largest contiguous
empire ever known by the time of his grandson, Kublai Kahn.
In Conn Iggulden's more than capable hands, the remarkable tale of Genghis Khan becomes an action-adventure story. Genghis: Lords of the Bow isn't a great work of literature, but it certainly is great fun to read. It's the kind of book you'd expect from the author of The Dangerous Book for Boys - an old-fashioned pager-turner ...
Genghis: Bones of the Hills - already available in the UK and Canada; publishing in the USA in late March 2009.
