Wolf of the Plains by Conn Iggulden

This is the first of a series about Genghis Khan. It is just as exciting as his books about Julius Caesar, but I found it more interesting purely due to knowing less about Mongolian history.

It's clear that the story is based on the myths of the life as much as the history (and, from the sounds of it, the only extant history is pretty much the same).
