Iggulden, author of the best-selling Emperorseries, shifts his concentrate eastward, retelling the story of legendary warrior Genghis Khan. Just as he did for Julius Caesar, Iggulden plants his topic firmly into historical context, fictionalizing the early years of Temujin, the son of a khan brutally murdered by invading Tartars. When his household is betrayed by a rival and abandoned by their clan, young Temujin vows revenge and dreams of the day he will turn out to be the conqueror rather than the conquered. Surviving the harsh reality of the Asian steppes, his adolescence is informed by a sense of mission that grows much more urgent with each passing year. As a young man, he begins to create abilities as each a fierce warrior along with a diplomat, reuniting Mongol tribes and factions into a formidable army. This authentically detailed historical drama sets the stage for the subsequent installment.
