Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Starred Review. Iggulden, coauthor of the megaseller The Dangerous Book for Boys, continues his masterful series on Genghis Khan (following Genghis: Birth of an Empire) with another vividly imagined chapter. In the debut volume, the Great Khan rises from the barren plains of central Asia to unify the scattered Mongol tribes into a nation. Here, Genghis turns to the conquest of the bloated, wealthy cities of the Chin, or Chinese, Kingdom. Aided by his brothers Kachiun and Khasar, Genghis strikes first against the Xi Xia Kingdom south of the Gobi Desert—a route into China that circumvents the Great Wall. The Mongols' insatiable quest to conquer drives the narrative, but Iggulden deftly weaves several intriguing character-driven subplots into the saga, including tales of sibling rivalry between Genghis's two eldest sons and the cupidity of a powerful and enigmatic shaman. Borrowing from history and legend, Iggulden reimagines the iconic conqueror on a more human scale—larger-than-life surely, but accessible and even sympathetic. Iggulden's Genghis series is shaping up as a triumph of historical fiction. (Apr.)

'...every bit as addictive as his Emperor books.' The Bookseller Praise for Wolf of the Plains: 'I felt as if a blockbuster movie was unfolding before me and a blockbuster movie will surely emerge from this. Read the book before Hollywood takes it over ' Daily Express 'This is energetic, competent stuff; Iggulden knows his material and his audience ' Independent 'Epic hisorical fiction at its finest; enthralling, exciting and utterly believable. Volume two is eagerly awaited ' Yorkshire Evening Post Praise for the Emperor series: 'If you liked Gladiator, you'll love Emperor' The Times 'A brilliant story -- I wish I'd written it. A novel of vivid characters, stunning action and unrelenting pace. It really is a terrific read.' Bernard Cornwell 'The great events and breathtaking brutality of the times are brought lavishly to life.' Guardian

Format: Paperback
This was the first book I picked up by Conn Iggulden. As soon as I was finished (which did NOT take very long - I couldn't put it down) I went and bought the rest of the series. I was pleasantly surprised by this book that I had pretty much randomly chosen without any previous exposure to this author.

I do not know the history of Genghis Khan in great detail, but this book did not seem like a history lesson in any aspect, unlike previous reviews have told. The story does follow the history of Genghis as he starts to build his empire but reads like a fast-moving action/war novel with vivid battles. I never felt as if I was being dragged through a history lecture. Iggulden also often writes from the perspective of different characters and thereby gives the reader the greatest understanding of what makes those characters tick. It is through Temuge's journey to Baotou that the reader understands his desires and drives, for example. None of the important characters lacked depth, especially after reading the first book in the series.

Genghis' ruthless desire for conquest, the strength and skill of his officers and the resilience of his people are well featured in this epic. I highly recommend it and the rest of the series as well.
