Upon interrogating a Tartar prisoner, Temujin learns that the leader of the Olkhunut conspired with the Chin to lead the Tartar assassins to his father. To weave so many characters through the timeline of Genghis Khan’s start in life to Kublai’s prime is an extraordinary feat. Who said revenge isnt a good motivator?
