Publisher's Summary

Best-selling author Conn Iggulden has earned sweeping critical acclaim for his Genghis Khan series, which captures the essence of the legendary warrior as no previous novels have.

In this breathtaking volume, Genghis must act when trouble brews west of the Mongolian plains. Dividing his army and using his sons as generals, he sets out to accomplish two important goals - conquer those who resist, and determine which son should succeed him.

Bones of the Hills - part 3 of a triology

If you begin reading the first book of the series 'Birth of an Empire', you won't be able pass up 'Lords of the Bow' or 'Bones of the Hills'. Rich with history, this is one of the best stories that I have ever listened to. Conn Iggulden has done a superb job of taking some pieces of history and stitching them together into a great story.

Great Conclusion - or is it?

While not quite on par with the first book (that would be extremely hard to top), I thought this, the third book in the series, picked it up a notch from the second book. All in all, all three books together make for one great story and are not only action packed, but filled with fascinating information about the cultures of the Mongels, Chinese, and Middle East. I, for one, was intrigued with the war strategies that allowed a bunch of goat herders to conquer half the world.

genghis bones of the hills

I was wanting more definate historical fact. It would not be fair for me to rate this other than average because I am not a person wo likes the novels in series. I've read two of this series and both are the same. Good stories, interesting characters but not what I was looking for in historical data.

Exceptional work.

When I first began this book, I had a bit of a problem keeping all of the players straight. By the time the end of the book arrived, I felt as if I knew each one with Incredible detail. The narrator did a fabulous job of conveying this very powerful story. As with any good book, the picture created by the narrator of the story in my mind exceeded my complete expectations. It is a brutal story of a brutal people in a brutal time. There is no romance to this story. Be that as it may, it is still a fascinating story about an incredible period of time in n human history.

Incredible 3rd book!

These books are just so exciting and interesting. Non-stop action! As with the first 2 books, I just couldn't put it down. I love all of the history and the author really paints the picture. Narrator Richard Ferrone did a great job making you feel like you were there! Highly recommend!

Great part 3

A well written continuation of this series. Brining it to life and keeping social and historical context in mind. Narrator is same as part 2 and does a good job, but still prefer the one from part 1.

The story slows down a bit in this installment

Still good storytelling, and I still recommend the book. It just seemed to drag a bit more than the first two, and get bogged down in places. The narrator is still not my favorite, but I'm getting used to him now.
