  • Paster
. . . as he turns his rightfully vengeful eyes on Arab lands southwest of his birthplace and away from the lands of the Chin that he is in the midst of conquering. Those Arabs who surrender will be spared as long as they give tribute; those who resist will die along with everyone in their city. The Shah of Khwarezm’s vast army is defeated and the Shah and his sons pursued for more than a year across a thousand miles. Genghis also turns his vengeful eyes on his son Jochi, the only man to ever betray Genghis, Khan of Khans. At the end of the story, Genghis’s brother Khasar avenges his death as well. It is hard to sustain a story through three long books, over 1500 pages, and Iggulden’s invention of Tsubodai’s pursuit of Jochi and the resulting tension between the general and the Khan rescues an otherwise predictable plot.

This is the third book in a 5 book series. The series is historical fiction surrounding the rise of the Mongol Nation. The first three books in the series focus on Genghis Khan. This book is well written and kept me reading for hours at a time.For anyone who has ever visited Mongolia, worked with Mongolian people, and visited families living in a ger, this book will bring the lifestyle to life like no other. I also appreciated the areas where the author takes certain liberties, he highlights those liberties he took, explains why he took them, and gives the correct history of the event at the end of every book.

Where to begin? It was such an amazing series!

I love historical fictions, they give you a front row seat into how our world was shaped while breathing life into long dead people. This series did that and MORE!

I recommend starting at the first book and, if you are half as into these books as I was, you won't be able to put them down.

Pros:
- Battle scenes, very descriptive and exciting. I would like to congratulate the author on keeping the types of battles written throughout the series fresh and interesting. They fought constantly for generations but always a new location, new odds, new strategy, new obstacles. Very EXCITING!

-Character development. The number of characters is never overwhelming and you become emotionally invested in their lives. They have varying personalities, goals, dreams, while still keeping a bit of humor.

-Extremely well written

-Great mix of historical fact and page turning dramas. I really enjoyed understanding the life of the Mongols. They are strong people. Very impressive.

-Scenery descriptions, I loved the changes in scenery and I have a much deeper understanding of the climate and environment of the Mongol, Asian, and Islamic parts of the world. Plus the struggles that had to over come to survive and conquer.

-Assassins~! Only the Mongols would take on assassin strong holds...

The author truly captures the essence of this book in his final note:

"This story began as a single starving family, hunted and alone on the plains of Mongolia -- and ends with Kublai Khan ruling an empire larger than that of Julius Ceaser or Alexander the Great. Over just three generations, that is simply the greatest rags-to-riches tale in human history" Conn Iggulden

I am now going to read his Ceaser series and any other historical fiction Conn Iggulden writes!!

WONDERFUL!!!!

This is a good read. It's the third in a series of five and covers his conquests in China and the Muslim states. They are all good historical fiction books about one of the World's foremost dynasties. Highly recommended!

It was not just good, it was awesome and fun and pulled you in for hours at a time. Hard to put down. Exciting and really made you feel like you were Khan's neighbor living next door, what it must have been like in those times. I so much enjoyed the entire series that I have sold my paperback versions and bought hardcover books to keep displayed on my book shelf. I do not have a large book collection, very few I keep around for future re-reading but some of them include Name of the Wind (Patric Rothfus), The Way of Kings (Brandon Sanderson), Game of Thrones (Martin), and Emperor Series (Conn Igulden) - wonderful and similar writting style to his Conqueror series!

Great blend of history and fiction, doesn’t glamorize Gengis shows him as the monster he was but from his perspective. Every monster had his justifications for their monstrous activities. Funny thing is you find yourself rooting for the antihero even when you know that he was the living plague of his time.

I have and continue to thoroughly this series about Genghis khan . It's as if you become a silent viewer of this man's life, from his beginning to the end of his life. I have recommended this series to friends and coworkers . I am looking forward to reading the next two books and seeing where all the sons and brothers go. It's the best piece of historical fiction i have read in quite some time
The books in this series are excellent. First time I have been able to stick with battle "scenes" as they are full of incredible descriptions of the terrain and techniques of the Mongols. Found myself on the internet researching the locations and that time-period to fully understand and appreciate what these people accomplished. Very good storytelling with lots of small details about life in that period.
