    " "Genghis - Lords of the Bow" is the second in the trilogy based on the life of Genghis Khan who lived and conquered during the later part of the 12th century and early 13th century. Although this series of books are novels, they are historical novels based on many true and fascinating accounts that were not only recorded in part by his own people, but also by the many peoples he conquered, especially the Chinese. One of the bloodiest battles in history was in 1211 when his mongol armies defeated a vastly larger Chinese army defending a walled city five miles in circumference and with a population of a million people, a city that is now know as Beijing. Genghis was a superb strategist as well as a uniter and leader of many tribes whom he brought together as a nation at a time when this concept was relatively new. Above all, if you enjoy a great tale full of action based on many fascinating historical facts, you will thoroughly enjoy this book as well as the other books Conn Iggulden has written about Genghis Khan. By the way, many people mistake the Mongols of eastern Asia as the "Huns;" this term has come about as a mistake caused by an error in a 19th century French news article when the name "Huns" was confused with the true name for these nomadic people who were in fact Mongols. The Huns were a fierce tribe who invaded Eastern Europe from the north about six hundred years earlier. "

    " Brilliant follow up, i couldn't put it down. "

    " This is the second book in Iggulden's trilogy of Genghis Khan. Genghis, now master of all the Mongol tribes, sets his sights on conquering The Chin Empire, as China was known then. He takes the horde of history into a great battle against the Chinese forces at Badger Pass, and after his victory there beseiges Yenking (aka Beijing). The khan learns that, once you build a great army, you must keep it fed, not in meat and wine, but in war and victories. I was interested in learning how Iggulden handled the depiction of such a barbaric protagonist. He did it by showing that the merciless behavior of the Mongols, and the Chin, were all part of the way life was in that day, it was a "natural" action. When we look at human behavior in the last hundred years, the Nazis and the holocaust, the Khmer Rhouge and Cambodia, the Taliban and Afghanista, Bosnia, Somalis, Rwanda, we discover that mankind hasn't changed much at all over the centuries. "

    " The second in Iggulden's reconstruction of the life and depradations of Ghengis Khan. Very imaginative, lots of action (and a little philosophy). Given what must have been a dearth of source material, Iggulden has done a good job of evoking the world of Genghis. Recommended if you're interested in this particular barbarian. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Harvey Scott | 2/2/2014

    " My first read of Iggulden. Utterly and fascinatingly detailed. Iggulden has mastered the art of novel writing. Impressive for his relative lack of experience when facing off with the likes of Grisham and Clancy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 David | 2/1/2014

    " Very good read. My favourite of Con's books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pmercado | 1/15/2014

    " The storyline is an amazing one with lots of action in two continents. The second installment is as good as the first. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mick | 1/14/2014

    " This book was probably a bit better than the 1st....but not by much, I really liked the way Khasar and Katchiun (Ghengis's) brother's really came into their own, some really funny bits in there, it got a little slow there for a chapter or 2, but all said and down it's a pearla!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karl Schaeffer | 1/7/2014

    " As good as the 1st book. This book follows Gehghis after he unites the Mongols and tunrs his attention to the "Chin" Enjoyable read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sorabhs | 12/17/2013

    " Very well writen. Must read for anyone interested in history "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Arnout Brokking | 12/12/2013

    " Epic battles, epic scenery. a very entertaining read. felt it sagged a bit in the middle, but still enjoyed it a lot. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Charlie | 12/6/2013

    " Excellent book really enjoyed it - learn quite a lot of the history in an engaging way "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maciek | 11/29/2013

    " Well, I only want to say that it was a long time since I read a book so quickly. It's not 100% in accord with historical facts, but it's a great story and a really good glimpse into the culture and life of Mongolian people during the first phase of their conquest of Eurasia. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Todd | 11/15/2013

    " The characters fit the historical events, and the personalities fit Mongol culture excellently. This was an excellent book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carmelina | 11/9/2013

    " This next instalment does not disappoint - couldn't stop reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vanessa | 11/3/2013

    " it was good but there was some inconsistencies from the 1st bk in the series. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Carolyn Shirey | 8/22/2013

    " I was looking forward to continuing the series but I've stalled on this one....I can't quite say why I'm not loving it, but I'm not. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dan Pickles | 5/2/2013

    " Not bad but not as good as the first in the series focusing on one huge battle and a little slow to get started. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 1arryb | 4/19/2013

    " As the empire grows, my interest wanes. I won't read the 3rd volume. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Wendy | 11/22/2012

    " I enjoyed the first book in the series more which explored how Temujin became Genghis Khan. This was just a book of battles. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Phil | 11/21/2012

    " Not quite as compelling as the first in the series, quite possibly because that one was read with no expectations, and the experience with it set a high bar for this. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Paul Naughton | 10/21/2012

    " If you haven't read this series, go to the beginning and start. Now... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dale Renton | 8/18/2012

    " Not quite as strong as the first volume but still very well written and engaging. I continually felt the need for either Genghis or his brothers to make more reference to Temujin - as he was originally known - in the context of what he had become. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Barb | 11/23/2011

    " After seeing the movie Mongol I wanted to learn more about Genghis Kahn. This book was great, easy to read and wonderfully descriptive. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mark Butler | 8/7/2011

    " Not the best of the Conqueror series, but still a masterpiece. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Fan | 6/15/2011

    " One of his first books that I have read and later followed by the Emperor series, great historical fiction of the life of Genghis Khan. Just like being there with him on the plains. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cliff | 4/19/2011

    " Great second book. I'm really enjoying the series so far. Not really fictional history, since it 99% sticks with what actually happened around Genghis Khan, but perhaps 'narrative history' would be more fitting. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pat | 3/19/2011

    " I love these books. He has a wonderful tale of adventure and history going on here. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marsha | 3/4/2011

    " Woke up early this morning and started. From sci fi far into the future....to way back in time. Great characters are great no matter the time period. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Phil | 2/10/2011

    " Not quite as compelling as the first in the series, quite possibly because that one was read with no expectations, and the experience with it set a high bar for this. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christy | 2/4/2011

    " EVERY BIT AS GOOD AS THE FIRST ONE! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joe | 2/2/2011

    " Powerful second entry into this triptych serialization of the life of Genghis Khan. Although it took a while for me to get through it, it was well worth the effort. Onto the final story! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tom | 1/29/2011

    " Writing an epic series about Genghis Khan is no easy feat, but Iggulden made it seem easy, convincingly recreating an ancient world in great detail. Strangely, despite the ruthless, cruel nature of the Mongols, he succeeds in making us sympathize with them! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gretchjon | 12/30/2010

    " Second of the series. Informative and entertaining. "
