Overview

Recounting a story so epic and impactful that it had to be split into two volumes, this fictionalized account of the life and times of Mongol conquerer Genghis Khan marks the first thorough documentation of the early parts of his life, areas which were never recorded but have been fleshed out using fictionalized elements drawn from massive intercontinental research. As history's only true world conqueror, Genghis Khan's empire still remains the biggest singular nation in human history, and its contribution to so many meaningful and influential aspects of human civilization, including paper, gun powder, the compass, astronomy, and Arabic numerals, helps argue that its emergence was the turning point that guided the world into a modern, positive direction. Volume 1 begins with a brief prehistory of the Mongol Khans through the late 12th century and includes Temujin's birth, childhood, and training under his mentor Wang-Khan. Volume 2 tells of Temujin's ascendancy to power as Genghis Khan, the uniting of the nomadic tribes, and the numerous conquests that built the greatest empire in all of history.
