Publisher's Summary

The first of a major new four book series on Genghis Khan, from the author of the number one bestselling Emperor series.

Read by Jason Isaacs star of the BBC Drama CASE HISTORIES. Bonus feature: Includes an exclusive Q&A session between Conn Iggulden and Jason Isaacs.

'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 eleven 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
    "Top Notch entertainment"
    What did you like most about Wolf of the Plains?

    The scale of the story is huge but the size does not hinder the development of the central characters.

    The story has the feel of a history book but the visualisation that the writer delivers is excellent


    What other book might you compare Wolf of the Plains to, and why?

    It has elements of Lord of the Rings


    Which character – as performed by Jason Isaacs – was your favourite?

    Temujin is fantastic. Resourceful and dangerous - brilliant


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The betrayal scenes were very poignant


    Any additional comments?

    Brilliant brilliant brilliant

    "Excellent series"
    Would you listen to Wolf of the Plains again? Why?

    I was fascinated by the whole series and will listen to again


    What did you like best about this story?

    as a schoolboy history was the dullest lesson but this series brings the whole thing to life as they gallop over the plains


    Have you listened to any of Jason Isaacs’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    Jason is a very good narrator its so good to be without American narrators who in general spoil the stories


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    no crying or laughing just totally interesting


    Any additional comments?

    Keep em coming Conn Iggulden

    Story
    "Wolf of the Plains"

    I really enjoyed this book. The story is good, the characters are well presented, but the highlight for me was the insight into the Mongul culture. Conn Iggulden has obviously done his research into the traditions and way of life of these nomadic tribes. Jason Isaacs reads it well, and it was a good read. The only negative was that it was over pretty soon, and I wish I had bought the unabridged version, but I most definitely will be listening to book 2 next. Conn Igguldens style of writing is very engaging, and this book did not disappoint.

    "Brilliant book!!"

    I can't give it 5 stars as it is abridged and a shortened version of the full book. A master class in story telling. Performance was very good as well. Would recommend.
