From the author of the bestselling The Dangerous Book for Boys
 
Conn Iggulden’s novels are grand historical tales of conquest and vengeance, cruelty and greatness. Now the acclaimed author of Genghis: Birth of an Empire delivers a masterful new novel of the mighty Mongol conqueror—as Genghis Khan sets out to unify an entire continent under his rule.…

He came from over the horizon, a single Mongol warrior surrounded by his brothers, sons, and fellow tribesmen. With each battle his legend grew and the ranks of his horsemen swelled, as did his ambition. For centuries, primitive tribes had warred with one another. 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.

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. Laying siege to one fortress after another, Genghis called upon his cunning and imagination to crush each enemy in a different way, to overcome moats, barriers, deceptions, and superior firepower—until his army faced the ultimate test of all.

In the city of Yenking—modern-day Beijing—the Chin will make their final stand, setting a trap for the Mongol raiders, confident behind their towering walls. But Genghis will strike with breathtaking audacity, never ceasing until the Emperor himself is forced to kneel.

Baker & Taylor
A sequel to Genghis: Birth of an Empire continues the story of the powerful leader as he embarks on a bold new quest to conquer the mighty Chin empire, leaving a trail of devastation behind as he makes his way to Yenking, capital of the empire, and prepares to lay siege to the city and starve it into submission. 55,000 first printing.

I didn't find it slow at all! Better than the first one in the series. I fully recommend the audios. Listen to the books while driving and its very enjoyable.

If you like battle scenes, this is almost as good as Conqueror, the last book of the series and my favorite. The Lords of the Bow is my 2nd best :) Enjoy the series.

I too found Conn Iggulden’s ‘Lords of the Bow’ a little slower than book 1.It was however a very enjoyable read. Recommended by - Doctor-at-Bass! Taylor A.

Conn Iggulden’s ‘Lords of the Bow’ – Conqueror Series Book 2 was a very good book. If you are a lover of historical fiction this series is for you. While I found the pace a little slower than book 1, Genghis Khan’s battle for Yenking, chapters 22-24 left you on the edge of your seat, i.e., you cannot put the book down. Regretfully, there is only one copy of book 2 in the Conqueror Series available at the Library as of November 2014 and that has created a bottleneck for readers. Highly recommended series by Senior Doctor-at-Bass! D. A.
