Publisher's Summary

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.

    Story
    "Leaves You Howling For More!"

    This is Iggulden at his best. A fine balance of character development and action. The story of the young boy that grew into a fierce warrior is told with near-perfect pacing. There’s lots of action and violence but equally time is devoted to the story of young boys growing up in the harshest of lands among the toughest of men. A young Temujin suffers both at the hands of that terrible icy land and men he should have been able to trust. From this intense crucible one of history’s hardest steel-like characters is forged and the world trembled.

    The narration from Stephen Thorne is well done, he isn’t the world’s greatest voice actor but he has a rich, pleasing voice that carries Iggulden’s exciting story well. As starts to a series go this really is excellent and it genuinely does leave us wolves howling for more!

    "Beautifully narrated."

    The story of Genghis Khan is incredible and this novel is based on what is known of the founder of Mongolia. It is well written and superbly narrated.
    A very enjoyable read.

    "Very engaging story"

    You know what's going to happen in the end as the main character is one of the greatest in history. But Iggulden has an amazing ability to create drama, and I'm areas I found surprising. Very good story that stayed true to the culture and history while giving the reader an exciting ride.

    "AJN'S review"

    I love this version on the story of Genghis. It takes into account the secret history while refreshingly making adjustments to make the story feel more real. Beautifully read and portrayed.
