Balancing Genghis the barbarian and Genghis the family man is difficult.

Can even the vast horde break an impregnable fortress-city? Excellent second part of the Mongol story.

Genghis: Lords of the Bow
Another great volume in this saga. If you want history, read a history book. Whether this is the dive in quality after the first book that I imagine it to be I don’t know but it’s bad enough to make sure I don’t read any of the others in the series.
A man who lived for battle and blood, Genghis leads his warriors across the Gobi Desert and into a realm his people had never seen before—with gleaming cities, soaring walls, and canals. Also, I would have liked a bit more cultural information about not only the Mongols but the different Chinese nations in the book.

Conn Iggulden’s novels are grand historical tales of conquest and vengeance, cruelty and greatness. Lords of the Bow: Lords of the Bow picks up a couple years after Birth of an Empire left off. On the other, how can I root for a Mongol leader over a Xi Xia leader when the Xi Xia are the ones defending their homes?
Conn has managed to present this phenomenal era of history in a very captivating manner indeed. Iggulden loses me from the first bending of a bow. Before starting this series, I knew next to nothing about Genghis, which shocks and appalls me given his impact on the world. Read it Forward Read it first.
Lords of the Bow (Conqueror , book 2) by Conn Iggulden
This is one aspect of the novel that got a little tedious. Solo Ogedai sembrava confuso. It probably has to do with the military setting and the relatively broad cnon Almost everyone has their honour satisfied, except for Temuge, who complains that he was made to kneel.
This second installment maintains the high standards of the first. This volume included far more planning a scheming and less fighting. It is jaw dropping to appreciate all the elements the Mongol armies brought lorvs bear in conquering cities and regions, that were so much more advanced than anything that came before. In igguldeen opinion, this really disappears once you finish the aforementioned first part of the first book.
They are anxious to be off, but he is determined to wait for the Khan of the Uighur to show up with the five thousand soldiers he wishes to have. View all 7 comments.
All in all, this is a successful jggulden. I love just about anything by David Gemmell, or Peter F. He does make an effort with the characters, but somehow the whole thing seems I’m looking forward to reading the final volume in the trilogy about this larger than life historical figure. In this book, we follow Genghis Khan, his brothers and his warrior buddies on a quest to conquer more land across Asia!
No trivia or quizzes yet. My second issue iggu,den with the battle scenes. From this point on, there is tension between Borte Genghis’ first wife and Genghis’ second wife.
Hamilton or Wilbur Smith. 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.
The book follows Genghis’ completion of the consolidation of the disparate Mongol tribes and subsequent campaigns against the Western Xia and Jin empires.
I knew shortly after starting it, that I would not be doing page math. In the meantime, I’m still interested enough to see how this series develops, so I’ll be returning to it again soon enough. The battles described in the volume, especially the final battle, can be described in one word, EPIC. Page count is wrong.

This gives the book a roomy quality, which is a very good thing with a story with the epic nature of the insanely widespread Mongol conquests.
O ritmo melhora da metade pro final. Lords of the Bow Lords of the Bow first edition cover. Genghis now takes the united tribes to fight against the Chin. As such, the battle scenes are appropriately long, tense and bloody. After Iggulden spent so much time in the last one building up the character of young Genghis Kahn – and making him sympathetic – there was surprisingly little personal development here. Sieges and battles abound, giving the reader the first look in this series at what the Mongols could do when they were fighting other nations.
