Synopsis

Lords of the Bow by Conn Iggulden

The action-packed second novel in the No. 1 bestselling Conqueror series, bringing to the epic story of Genghis Khan brilliantly to life The Mongol tribes have gathered to swear an oath of loyalty to Genghis Khan, who will unite the warring tribes into one nation. But the task is formidable. Genghis is determined to travel to Chin lands and attack the long-term enemy. The distances make it a difficult task even for a people used to travelling to survive. But the greatest challenge is to find a way of fighting wars against a settled urban population, with complex fortifications unlike any the nomadic Mongolians live in. Genghis must also reconcile the restless factions among his own generals and mediate between his ambitious brothers. The young warrior has become a notable and victorious military commander of thousands. Now he must learn to be the great leader of many different races and religions and fulfil his dream of uniting these people into one tribe.
