Iggulden, Conn: Genghis: Birth of an Empire

A Novel
From the author of the bestselling The Dangerous Book for Boys
 
Genghis Khan was born Temujin, the son of a khan, raised in a clan of hunters migrating across the rugged steppe. Shaped by abandonment and betrayal, Temujin endured, driven by a singular fury: to survive in the face of death, to kill before being killed, and to conquer enemies who could come without warning from beyond the horizon.

Through a series of courageous raids, Temujin’s legend grew until he was chasing a vision: to unite many tribes into one, to make the earth tremble under the hoofbeats of a thousand warhorses, to subject all nations and empires to his will.
“Zesty historical fiction, the kind with plenty of unbridled combat, accurate research, rampaging hordes and believable characters from very different cultures whose motivation rings true across the centuries.... Invigorating.”—Deirdre Donahue, USA Today

"Iggulden writes with sweep and immediacy...the novel races along as swiftly and inexorably as its main character."—Christian Science Monitor

“Brilliantly imagined and addictive.... This is historical fiction of the first order.”—Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Compelling.... this is historical fiction writ large.”—Military.com
