From the author of the bestselling 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 a thousand warhorses, to subject all nations and empires to his will.

The ET74, January 31, 2013 (view all comments by The ET74)
BIRTH OF AN EMPIRE is the first in a series of four books by Conn Iggulden (The Khan series) devoted to the history-based fiction about the life and conquests of Gheghis Khan and his descendants in the 13th century. These books are fascinating and entertaining page-turners about the life and times of the Mongol people whom history sometimes incorrectly refers to as "the Tartars." The other books in this series are, "Genghis: Lords of the Bow," "Ghenghis:Bones of the Hills," "Khan: Empire of Silver." I had some difficulty finding these books despite their recent date of publishing (2007 to 2010) but the effort was well worth it!
