Of Battles Past (Amgalant 1.1)

The Mongols are a people of orphans. A disastrous battle with China has left wives without husbands, children without fathers. Temujin is one of these children, impoverished by the heavy tribute China has punished them with, in danger of forgetting what a Mongol stands for.

About Bryn Hammond

Writer, Australia, ex-UK.
I've been quietly at work on my historical fiction about 12th and 13th-century Mongols since 2003. It's my main occupation/obsession.
Before that, I spent years on a creative translation of Beowulf (unfinished) and wrote science fiction.
Keen on: walks by the sea, where I live. Baroque opera, Shostakovich, David Bowie. Books, old and a few new. Doctor Who and Star Trek: Discovery.

About the Series: Amgalant four-set
Both epic and intimate, Amgalant explores the story found in the Secret History of the Mongols. Much of this source is still secret -- neglected in Western accounts. People who knew Temujin gathered their stories into a communal memoir, which even conserves Temujin's own words. This is the inside story.

'In a word, the writing is extraordinary... To humanize one of history's most infamous conquerors is not an enviable task.'
'Hammond's writing is rich, nuanced, humorous... Amgalant is a rare and different, wonderful read.'

If you like the historical fiction of Hilary Mantel, Mary Renault or Dorothy Dunnett, the Amgalant series is for you.
