Interested? Yes, definitely! I love reading young adult novels with a historical setting. And I've always thought that Genghis Khan was a great warrior and conqueror. This story may be not about him, but it's about his granddaughter, albeit a fictional one. Nevertheless, it still sounds exciting. Imagine the significant network of numerous lakes, rivers, streams and springs in the north and the mountainous topography covered with meadows, steppes and forests that support good pastures in the west of Mongolia!
Cover Comment: Hmm... A pretty Mongol girl who has an interest in archery and horse riding. I think it's a perfect portrayal of the heroine Emmajin in the story. The intricate patterns on the background also has an ancient Chinese style. Thumbs up!
