Conn Iggulden takes on the story of Genghis Khan in the Conqueror series. The first book, Wolf of The Plains, introduces the reader to Temujin, the ambitious second son of the khan of the Wolves tribe, who survives against all odds, along with his family, when his father is killed in an ambush.
The second, Lords of the Bow, follows Genghis and his brothers along the trail they blaze across Chin, the enemy land. Bones of The Hills sees the further expansion of his empire, at the cost of a few sacrifices the leader is willing to make. The books have been lauded by readers on sites like Amazon, and the fourth in the series is supposed to be out in September according to the author’s website.
