To his amazement his oath-brother marches to war upon him. It is just the first move in a game of rivalry across the steppe and twenty years. Temujin thinks he has instructions from God to unite the brother tribes. He doesn't want to do this by wars. But brotherly wars are what his God has scheduled for him, until Temujin cannot see an end that is worth these sacrifices.
Sacrifices are said to earn grace. Has Temujin's God a grace for him, or for Jamuqa his oath-brother, who never believed in divine missions and whose fight has cost him dear? Or can they make their own? In unity is strength - one way or another. Hammond studied medieval history and literature while in college. She describes herself as a writer-in-a-garret and someone who does not pay much attention to the practical side of life. She currently lives in Australia. Tribal Brawls picks up where The Old Ideal leaves off.
There is no need to hide the main focus of the book; it is the rise of Genghis Khan. Some common knowledge of Genghis Khan is more myth and legend than fact.
Author Alliance’s Joseph Spuckler reviews Amgalant Two: Tribal Brawls by Bryn Hammond
The West tends to write history from its perspective rather neutral ground. Even the history of something as recent as the American Revolutionary War is not without controversies. It is held as a nearly holy event in American history, while in Britain, it is considered a minor civil war — a minor bump in their history. What Hammond does differently than most, and yes, I do know her book is historical fiction and not history, is use the Mongol text The Secret History of the Mongols. This text is thought to have been a copy written in the 14th century. The text remained unknown in the West until the early twentieth century.
It is the most detailed account of Mongol history we have.

Hammond uses The Secret History as her outline and creates and epic series on the life of Genghis Khan. This creates the background history for the novel, and with it comes hundreds of pages of story.
A chandelier fell on Galli killing him. Chase sees more, and the investigation begins. In the previous book I compared Chase to a grown up Encyclopedia Brown. In this novel there is still some of that and maybe a bit of Columbo too. Chase is a likable character and very much a realistic one too.
He is a genuine nice guy and usually only gets agitated by cigarette smoke and when his running is disturbed. Mattana writes a good old time mystery. It is not a CSI type book or a detective who crosses the line the get his man. Leave a comment. Filed under Book Review. Tagged as Mystery. You are commenting using your WordPress.
