About the Author: Conn Iggulden

Also publishes under author name - C.F. Iggulden.

I was born in the normal way in 1971, and vaguely remember half-pennies and sixpences. I have written for as long as I can remember: poetry, short stories and novels. It’s what I always wanted to do and read English at London University with writing in mind. I taught English for seven years and was Head of English at St. Gregory’s RC High School in London by the end of that period. I have enormous respect for those who still labour at the chalk-face. In truth, I can’t find it in me to miss the grind of paperwork and initiatives. I do miss the camaraderie of the smokers’ room, as well as the lessons where their faces lit up as they understood what I was wittering on about.

My mother is Irish and from an early age she told me history as an exciting series of stories – with dates. My great-grandfather was a Seannachie, so I suppose story-telling is in the genes somewhere. My father flew in Bomber Command in WWII, then taught maths and science. Perhaps crucially, he also loved poetry and cracking good tales. Though it seems a dated idea now, I began teaching when boys were told only girls were good at English, despite the great names that must spring to mind after that statement. My father loved working with wood and equations, but he also recited ‘Vitai Lampada’ with a gleam in his eye and that matters, frankly.

I’ve always loved historical fiction as a genre and cut my teeth on Hornblower and Tai-Pan, Flashman, Sharpe and Jack Aubrey. I still remember the sheer joy of reading my first Patrick O’Brian book and discovering there were nineteen more in the series. I love just about anything by David Gemmell, or Peter F. Hamilton or Wilbur Smith. I suppose the one thing that links all those is the love of a good tale.

That’s about it for the moment. If you’d like to get in touch with me leave a comment in the forum or you can tweet me @Conn_Iggulden. I’ll leave it there for the moment. If you’ve read my books, you know an awful lot about the way I think already. There’s no point overdoing it.

El joven Temujin se ha convertido en Gengis Khan, el victorioso comandante que conseguirá unir a las tribus más belicosas de las estepas. Su intención es forjar una nueva nación en las salvajes llanuras y montañas de Mongolia, un nacimiento sangriento que pondrá a un continente de rodillas.
Durante miles de años, las tribus han sido mantenidas a raya por las fortalezas del imperio de los Chin, una tierra de enorme riqueza e ingentes ejércitos imbatibles. A cambio, los guerreros de Gengis sólo poseen el arco, el caballo y una disciplina de hierro nacida de una tierra de hielo, hambre y muerte. Las murallas de piedra se ciernen sobre los jinetes mongoles, su khan deberá derrotar al antiguo enemigo y llevar a su pueblo a la grandeza o ver cómo su gente se dispersa y sus sueños se rompen en mil pedazos.
