About the book:

15th century Asia. In the midst of Genghis Khan's former empire, torn apart by two centuries of civil war, a young Mandukhai dares to dream of becoming a fierce female warrior. Her aspirations are abruptly halted when she is compelled to become the second wife of Manduul Khan, a man of ruthless power. Yet, even in the face of such a daunting fate, her spirit remains unbroken.

Meanwhile, Wan Zhen’er, who lives in the Forbidden City, a place of immense power and secrecy, is only the nanny to Zhu Jianshen, the future Emperor of China. But although she eventually rises to the rank of official concubine of the Chenghua Emperor and becomes the most powerful woman in the Middle Kingdom, Lady Wan is forced to defend her precarious position daily against conspiratorial eunuchs, warlords, ministers, and much younger and ambitious concubines.

The great Mongolian warrior, Unebolod, spends his life in Manduul Khan’s shadow, preparing for the day when he can seize the throne, even though he’s not a direct descendant of Genghis Khan but rather of his younger brother, Qasar. His lineage, though not direct, holds significant weight in the Mongolian hierarchy. But when he forms a dangerous alliance with Mandukhai Khatun, it swiftly transforms into a lingering passion that could destroy them both. But just as the two young people are sure that fate will bring them together and make Unebolod the next Khan, a young prince emerges from the shadows, captures the Khan’s attention, and attempts to steal the people’s hearts.

As Manduul Khan's health deteriorates, Mandukhai Khatun faces her most daunting challenge yet: Establishing her place in a male-dominated political hierarchy. With the Mongolian warlords preparing for another round of conflict, secrets are unearthed and dangers lurk at every turn. The suspense builds as the treacherous games of influence and power unfold at the Mongolian court and the Forbidden City. Who will emerge victorious? Will the royal bloodline of Genghis Khan survive? And who will be left to recount the tale when the dust finally settles?
