    He was born Temujin, son of a khan, raised in a clan of hunters migrating across the steppe. Temujin's young life was shaped by a series of brutal acts: the betrayal of his father by a neighboring tribe, his family left to die on the harsh plain. But Temujin endured, and from then on, he was driven by a fury to survive in the face of death, to kill before being killed, and to conquer enemies from beyond the horizon.

    David says: "Move over Bernard Cornwell"
    "Genghis is an excellent choice!"
    Overall

    Absolutley an excellent Audiobook. From start to finish it is captivating.
    This Historical Fiction has a story on the same lines as The Glatiator' On top gets betrayed, barely servives and then becomes a legend.
    The facts about Temujin and his story stay true. If a second book comes out I will be in line for it.

    If you could sum up Star Wars: Heir to the Empire (20th Anniversary Edition) in three words, what would they be?

    I hope the other 2 books in the Thraun Trilogy are going to be like this. You can't get the other two unabridged.... I would wait until it happens! Marc Thompson was amazing (legin.....wait for it.........dary).
