Forger of Empire

A Novel of Genghis Khan

by Jeanne Blanchet


Book Details

In mid-twelfth-century Mongolia, a boy with brilliant blue eyes was born clutching a blood clot in his fist. Both those rare occurrences were considered signs portending future greatness and power. As a young man, he rose from poverty and obscurity against horrific odds to build the largest contiguous land empire the world had ever known. His father had named him Temüjin, but he became renowned as Genghis Khan. FORGER OF EMPIRE is based on his incredible story. In this impeccably researched novel, historical fiction author Jeanne Blanchet has provided fascinating insight into the varied facets of this complex conqueror—both positive and negative. Once readers begin this action thriller, they will not be able to put it down.
