    Description

    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.

    Loved it.

    I hope I enjoy the rest of the series as much as this. The character development is brilliant.

    Number the books please!

    One lost point for the very inconvenient missing book numbers. Had to go look it up on Wiki to find out which one to download next. This has been a problem with every Audible series so far! Please fix.

    Excellent narration

    Should go for it without second thought. Conn Iggulden is a master. And the dramatized narration is too delicious to miss.

    Solid historical action

    Overall an entertaining read. Certainly a very interesting glimpse into the past and the birth of the Mongol empire. The story of the boy Temujin who is destined to someday be Ghengis Khan is a rollicking action packed adventure, but heavy on plot, light on character. The relationship between Temujin and his brothers is perhaps the richest part of the tale, especially in the wilderness years, but it’s violence and war and bloodshed that dominate the rest of the book at the expense of depth. I wonder though if it’s possibly partly due to the historical material ... savage pre-literate tribes in the wilderness provide fundamentally less interesting material than say ancient Rome, the Ming dynasty in China or the Tudors. Nonetheless, an enjoyable book - brilliantly narrated.

    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.

    Amazing story well read!

    I already read the Book a while ago and I loved it. i chose to listen to the audio version and bought this version. I was very glad to hear that Stephen Thorne's voice was clear and deep so it gets you right into the harsh Universe of the Mongol Tribes. I will buy the second book and I can only urge anyone who is interested in Genghis Khan's story to do the same: It NEVER gets boring and you will be hooked after the first chapter.
