"Iggulden's trilogy [is] a feat of rousing, adventure-packed storytelling ... a kind of fictionalized "Dangerous Book", loaded with the lore of warfare, horsemanship, strategy, and exotic geography and history, along with the perils as well as the virtues of an unrelenting ethos of manliness."--"National Review""The exciting third novel in Iggulden's Genghis Khan series ... is epic historical fiction at its finest: exciting, suspenseful, colorful and well-grounded in fact.... Iggulden's vivid descriptions of bloody battles, masterful sieges and political intrigue are gripping.... With this tale, it is easy to see why the name Genghis is synonymous with conquest and military genius." --"Publishers Weekly", starred review
