Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Author of the magnificent ‘Emperor’ series on Julius Caesar now turns his considerable talent to the life of Genghis Khan and his descendants. Another tale of high adventure, brutal times and ambitious people. Wonderful stuff with a lot of human interest, a fascinating subject and loads of action.

Comparison: Bernard Cornwell, Steven Pressfield, Valerio Massimo Manfredi.

Synopsis

Wolf of the Plains by Conn Iggulden

A remarkable story of heroism and adventure, of a boy who had to become a man too soon, of a family and a tribe who had to learn to win to survive.

A man without a tribe was at great risk, so the young boy abandoned with his siblings on the harsh Mongolian plains had to struggle to avoid death. He survived both starvation and hostile attacks by learning remarkable leadership skills and gathering a group of outsiders like himself.

Hunted and alone, he dreamed of uniting the tribes into one house, one nation. He became a great warrior. He would become father to his people. He would be Genghis Khan.

Reviews

I felt as if a blockbuster movie was unfolding before me and a blockbuster movie will surely emerge from this. Read the book before Hollywood takes it over.’
Daily Express

‘Stirring stuff’
Mail on Sunday

‘This is energetic, competent stuff; Iggulden knows his material and his audience.’
Independent

‘Every bit as dazzling and action–packed as the Emperor quartet…Considering that the three main literary sources…have been picked clean by Genghis scholars over 800 years, Iggulden cooks up a nourishing stew with the bones’.
Saturday Guardian Review
