Publisher's Summary

From the author of the best-selling The Dangerous Book for Boys

Genghis Khan was born Temujin, the son of a khan, raised in a clan of hunters migrating across the rugged steppe. Shaped by abandonment and betrayal, Temujin endured, driven by a singular fury: to survive in the face of death, to kill before being killed, and to conquer enemies who could come without warning from beyond the horizon. 

Through a series of courageous raids, Temujin's legend grew until he was chasing a vision: to unite many tribes into one, to make the earth tremble under the hoofbeats of 1,000 warhorses, to subject all nations and empires to his will.

great historical *fiction*

A good book on Genghis, but entirely omits Jamukha from history, which is disappointing. therefore the book makes for a great basic understanding of Temujin's early life and mindset. But the changes and omission of such a major player in Temujin's life make it an unreliable source for showing off your knowledge of the great mongol conqueror.

Good story and delivery

I knew next to nothing about Genghis Khan so I listened for history as well as story. The story held my attention and I enjoyed the cultural details provided. I did some internet research and it appears that the general outline is considered historical, as much as what we know is accurate.

Phenomenal Story

It’s a tale that one cannot put down! The narration is perfect and the story is an excellent evaluation of a well known and brutal man. Thank you Mr. Iggulden. Now on to the next book in the series.

I Very much enjoyed this book, the narrator was perfect and hearing about his early years is not something so easily found (and in a good book) I’m looking forward to completing the series!! Loved it!

I love this series

Excellent book, well written, and a thriller that keeps you on your toes. Only thing I wish was better was the readers expressions in certain situations. Other than that a great listen or read 👌🏼
