Lords of the Bow by Conn Iggulden – book review

Not many people can write a good battle scene by good I mean understandable enough for a moron like me to follow. There is a scene of mass suicide.


Just send us an email and we’ll put the best up on the site. Genghis shows up on the scene, and tries to sort out the situation. 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. Cpnn Khan had no formal education.

That’s not to say that I didn’t like it. My great-grandfather was a Seannachie, so I suppose story-telling is in the genes somewhere. 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.

My mother is Irish jggulden from an early age she told me history as an exciting series of stories — with dates. As such, the battle scenes are appropriately long, tense and bloody.


He forbade the selling and kidnapping of women, adopted a writing system, allowed freedom of religion and more.

The author does a great job bringing the characters to life in a believable fashion. Of course, if this offer was refused, he would be ruthless to those who refused upon his eventual victory. Review in Portuguese from Desbravando Livros: The story is there and I do enjoy following Genghis Khan rise to conquer the world.

LitFlash The eBooks you want at the lowest prices. Leader Genghis Khan continues to sweep all before him showing a vision for an empire that will stand long after he has gone. After Iggulden spent so bw time in the last one building up the character of young Genghis Kahn – and making iggulen 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.

I haven’t read a book in which I was told how a character is feeling about something in every sentence since I don’t know when – certainly not as an adult.
