Publisher's Summary

The gathering of the tribes of the Mongols has been a long time in coming, but finally, triumphantly, Temujin of the Wolves, Genghis Khan, is given the full accolade of overall leader and their oaths. Now he can begin to meld all the previously warring people into one army, one nation. But the task Genghis has set himself, and them, is formidable. He is determined to travel to the land of the long-time enemy, the Chin, and attack them there. The distances and terrain - the wide deserts, the impenetrable mountains - make it a difficult venture, even for the legendarily speedy Mongols. But the greatest problem is confronting complex fortifications, a way of fighting a settled urban population - which the nomadic Mongolians have never come across. Finding ways to do that, and keeping his tribes together in a strange environment, presents another new and exciting challenge for Genghis Khan. Not only must Genghis succeed in this incredible campaign, but he must also reconcile the restless factions among his own generals, mediate between his ambitious brothers, and cope with his own reactions to his growing sons. The young warrior has become a notable and victorious military commander of thousands. He must now learn to become a great leader of peoples of many different races and religions. Lords of the Bow is a deeply satisfying novel, epic in scope, convincing, and fascinating in its narration of an extraordinary story.

Enthralling!

What did you like most about Lords of the Bow?

More amazing adventures in amazing times - masterfully told. I find myself grasped by the drama, laughing like Khasan and barracking for Ghengis even though we know he wins most days. One of my all-time favourite series.


What was one of the most memorable moments of Lords of the Bow?

I love the scene where Khasan and Temuge sail the river and Khasan befriends the sailors whilst learning and hurling insults for other crews depsite the fact they are on a secret mission.


If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Lords of the Bow: The Epic Story of the Great Conqueror - and by god i wish they would make a TV series just like games of thrones but better because its based on a real story
