Overview

From the co-author of The Dangerous Book for Boys, the Khan series is a triumph of historical fiction—a bold, epic account bursting with gritty realism and exhilarating action. Now this eBook bundle assembles the entire series—Birth of an Empire, Lords of the Bow, Bones of the Hills, Empire of Silver, and Conqueror—sparing no detail, from the Great Khan’s first conquest and the heights of his unprecedented empire, to his brutal ancestral legacy and the rise of Kublai Khan.
 
GENGHIS: BIRTH OF AN EMPIRE
 
“Invigorating . . . zesty historical fiction, the kind with plenty of unbridled combat, accurate research, rampaging hordes and believable characters.”—USA Today
 
Genghis Khan was born Temujin, the son of a khan, raised in a clan of hunters and driven by a singular fury: to survive in the face of death, to kill before being killed. 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.
 
GENGHIS: LORDS OF THE BOW
 
“Readers who enjoy well-researched tales of historical adventure with an emphasis on political intrigue, exotic settings, and military conflict will enjoy the ride.”—Library Journal
 
For centuries, primitive tribes have warred with one another. Now, under Genghis Khan, they have united as one nation to face the ultimate test: the great, slumbering walled empire of the Chin. In Yenking—modern-day Beijing—the Chin will make their final stand. But Genghis will strike with breathtaking audacity, never ceasing until the emperor himself is forced to kneel.
 
GENGHIS: BONES OF THE HILLS
 
“Page-turning . . . a sweeping historical saga [that] will appeal to fans of gritty combat fiction.”—Booklist
 
As Genghis enters a strange new land of towering mountains and arid desert, he stirs an enemy greater than any he has met before. Shah Ala-ud-Din Mohammed has under his command thousands of fierce Arab warriors, teeming cavalry, and terrifying armored elephants. But another battle is taking shape—between two of Genghis’s feuding sons. Soon the most powerful man in the world must choose a successor, touching off the most bitter conflict of all.
 
KHAN: EMPIRE OF SILVER
 
“Epic . . . alpha-male fiction . . . The book has much to teach about a time and a people long shrouded in legend.”—The Wall Street Journal
 
The Great Khan is dead—and his vast empire, forged through raw courage, tactical brilliance, and indomitable force, hangs in the balance. Even as the sons of Genghis Khan maneuver for supremacy, the Khan’s armies extend his reach farther than ever before, into southern China and across the rugged mountains of Russia to the vulnerable heart of Europe, where the most courageous warriors the West commands await the coming onslaught.
 
CONQUEROR
 
“A rip-roarin’ read, and inspiration to go and sack a few cities on your own.”—Kirkus Reviews
 
A succession of ruthless leaders have seized power in the wake of the Great Khan’s death—all descendants of Genghis, but none with his indomitable character. It is Kublai—refined and scholarly, always considered too thoughtful to take power—who will devise new ways of warfare and conquest as he builds the dream city of Xanadu. His gifts will serve him well when an epic civil war breaks out among brothers, the outcome of which will literally change the world.

    Fantastic series

    Conn Iggulden manages to capture an insiteful look into the world of Kahn. This series follows the family, has a more open viewpoint with reaserched historical accuracy in regards to the time frame and the people. I have read this series several times. I also search for this author, his writing style does not dissapoint. I enjoy reading historical and historical fiction from selective authors. If you are interested in Ghengis, and would like to read from an "inside" style viewpoint as opposed to the conquered view, this series has value. If you are not sure, try the first book... I enjoy this author, have read books from his bibliography as well as other authors on this subject matter. I prefer to have multiple viewpoints, "both sides of the story"
