Now, under Genghis Khan, they have united as one nation, setting their sights on a common enemy: the great, slumbering walled empire of the Chin. With each battle his legend grew and the ranks of his horsemen swelled, as did his ambition.

But Genghis will strike with breathtaking audacity, never ceasing until the Emperor himself is forced to kneel.

In the summer dusk, the encampment of the Mongols stretched for miles in every direction, the great gathering still dwarfed by the plain in the shadow of the black mountain. Ger tents speckled the landscape as far as the eye could see, and around them thousands of cooking fires lit the ground. Beyond those, herds of ponies, goats, sheep, and yaks stripped the ground of grass in their constant hunger. Each dawn saw them driven away to the river and good grazing before returning to the gers.

Though Genghis guaranteed the peace, tension and suspicion grew each day. None there had seen such a host before, and it was easy to feel hemmed in by the numbers. Insults imaginary and real were exchanged as all felt the pressure of living too close to warriors they did not know. In the evenings, there were many fights between the young men, despite the prohibition. Each dawn found one or two bodies of those who had tried to settle an old score or grudge.

There's very little here that suggests the charisma the real-life Genghis must have possessed to unite the nomadic tribes under one rule. Other characters are equally one-dimensional.

The dialog, too, is stilted - a bit like what you'd expect from a Conan movie. Much of it is over the top, particularly the motivational speeches along the lines of "We will kill all the men and delight in the weeping of their women!

As Genghis Khan consolidated the nomadic tribes of the Asian steppe, he realized that a consistent rule of law was necessary to maintain order. He accomplished this by creating his "Yasa" or "Yassa" , a comprehensive set of rules governing nearly all aspects of Mongolian life and culture.

The original Yasa "decree" or "order" is thought to have been written on scrolls bound into volumes, and kept in a secret archive to which only the khan and his advisers had access, but the rules were widely known and observed, and in many cases were adopted by rival cultures.

I think what I loved so much, initially, about the series was the relationships between the characters. There were no battles, the number of main characters was limited, and you got to see Iggulden's skill of writing this handful of people and how they connect. There were no battles, the number of main characters was limited, and you got to see Iggulden's skill of writing this handful of people and how they connected with each other. In my opinion, this really disappears once you finish the aforementioned first part of the first book. The second book in the series, Lords of the Bow is very much battle and conquest-driven as Genghis and his army take on the Xi Xia and the Jin. There's also a good portion of this book were Temuge, Khasar and Ho Sa travel to Batou to find a mason and it was And when they finally get the guy back to Genghis, all of a sudden it's another part of the book and they have siege engines.
