This book we step back a bit from the legend to encompass his army, his war tactics, and his success and failures on the battlefield. With each battle his legend grew and the ranks of his horsemen swelled, as did his ambition. Tangut and Chin read: Just send us an email and we’ll put the best up on lorvs site.
There is discussion of rape on multiple occasions but there are no graphic incidents. I gave it a second shot recently solely because I remember liking the first book a lot and I spent like fifteen bucks on this shit. Oct 17, Donna rated it really liked it Shelves: Lists with This Book.
Your enemies don’t come more dripping with macho-awesomeness than that!!
I really appreciate what the author had done with his works. Non permettete a nessuno di prendersi gioco di voi, nemmeno per scherzo. Gli altri guerrieri penseranno alla prossima battaglia, o a quella appena terminata. In spite of my location, this book has now joined a very small elite group of novels that I just cannot bring myself to finish.
Lords of the Bow
Avrete mogli e amanti a tempo debito. Refresh and try again. In terms of llrds, if this were a film, it would have an eighteen rating. Beside Genghis, I like how his brothers are having more roles to play instead of being the mere followers of Genghis in the previous book. They are always portrayed as the “villain”, so getting this perspective is an interesting concept. The book wasn’t cknn, but not as good as the first.
Final Thoughts While I enjoyed the book, it lacked the overall excitement of the first book. They meet the age-old enemy the Chin and the battles are fierce and bloody and on a knife edge at times.
Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. Not many people can write a good battle scene by good I mean understandable enough for a moron like me to follow. All in all, this is a successful book.

Genghis: Lords of the Bow (Conqueror, #2) by Conn Iggulden
Lords of the Bow Conqueror, Book 2 Author s: Lords of the Bow paint a picture of a man who possessed natural genius for warfare, an innate ability to lead connn the intelligence to seek out knowledge necessary to defeat the enemy Plot summary In this second volume, we follow Genghis on his early campaigns to fight the Chin Chinese dynasty. My mother is Irish and from an early age she told me history as an exciting series of stories — with dates.
I am excited to read the rest of the story of Genghis Khan. A band of 60, mongol warriors, newly formed in a community that violated the ancient tribal of governance of the Mongol people, set themselves against and ancient and advanced civilization. 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 I definitely did not enjoy this book as much as the previous one.
Avvincente, crudo a tratti, ha il pregio di unire ad una scrittura scorrevole, Le nostre vite sono come uccelli che volano davanti a una finestra illuminata per poi tornare nel buio.
The Mongol warriors have spent their entire life in open plains and living llrds gers. Iggulden loses me from the first bending of a bow. Genghis Lords of the Bow Author s: The story is there and I do enjoy following Genghis Khan rise to conquer the world.
Genghis: Lords of the Bow
They are anxious to be off, but he is determined to wait for the Khan of the Uighur to show up with the lordz thousand soldiers he wishes to have.
I think this above all else is something I greatly admired about the man as I think inspiring love and loyalty is always worthy of recognition.
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. The author maintains as much of the historical fidelity as possible and fills in the gaps where needed.
