Description

The gathering of the tribes of the Mongols has been a long time in coming, but finally, triumphantly, Temujin of the Wolves, Genghis Khan, is given the full accolade of overall leader and their oaths. Now he can begin to meld all the previously warring people into one army, one nation. But the task Genghis has set himself, and them, is formidable. He is determined to travel to the land of the long-time enemy, the Chin, and attack them there.

The distances and terrain - the wide deserts, the impenetrable mountains - make it a difficult venture, even for the legendarily speedy Mongols. But the greatest problem is confronting complex fortifications, a way of fighting a settled urban population - which the nomadic Mongolians have never come across. Finding ways to do that, and keeping his tribes together in a strange environment, presents another new and exciting challenge for Genghis Khan. Not only must Genghis succeed in this incredible campaign, but he must also reconcile the restless factions among his own generals, mediate between his ambitious brothers, and cope with his own reactions to his growing sons.

The young warrior has become a notable and victorious military commander of thousands. He must now learn to become a great leader of peoples of many different races and religions. Lords of the Bow is a deeply satisfying novel, epic in scope, convincing, and fascinating in its narration of an extraordinary story.

Fantastic sequel!

This is proving to be a fantastic series! Both interesting and exciting, I am looking forward to the next 3 books to read. The narrator on this particular book was also excellent and added to the enjoyment

It's just too good.

Like the first book, it's very difficult to let go. On to the third one...

Wonderful, historical fiction

After listening to the Emperor series by Conn Iggulden, which I enjoyed enormously, I wasn't sure about listening to this book series. Thankfully at the recommendation of my brother I did.

Okay, it starts off a bit slow and sometimes you find yourself thinking who is he again? So many names, I got a little mixed up with the characters early on. Please don't let this put you off purchasing or listening, this book / series is absolutely brilliant. I found myself taking the long round to places I was going just so I could listen a bit longer!

Just incredible how Conn manages weave his stories around some facts and create a compelling story.
