The first book in the best-selling Conqueror series featuring Genghis Khan and his descendants.
"I am the land and the bones of the hills. I am the winter."
Temujin, the second son of the khan of the Wolves tribe, was only 11 when his father died in an ambush. His family were thrown out of the tribe and left alone, without food or shelter, to starve to death on the harsh Mongolian plains. It was a rough introduction to his life, to a sudden adult world, but Temujin survived, learning to combat natural and human threats.
A man, a small family, without a tribe was always at risk, but he gathered other outsiders to him, creating a new tribal identity. It was during some of his worst times that the image of uniting the warring tribes and bringing the silver people together came to him. He will become the khan of the sea of grass, Genghis.

"I felt as if a blockbuster movie was unfolding before me...read the book before Hollywood takes it over." ( Daily Express)

Yes! I would listen to it quite a few times. The narrator does an amazing job, really draws you into the story.
I'd compare it to Ben Kane's 'Hannibal' - it's historical fiction, just as gripping, weaves characters and their lives into the historical events. A gripping story.
Wow, that's a hard one! I loved every minute of it. Probably my favourite was when Temujin finally got revenge for his father's death (not naming specifics as i don't want to spoil it for anyone)
Genghis. Boy, outcast, leader. A gripping tale of survival and battle.
Definitely one of the best books to listen to!!
History made interesting!
