It’s difficult to describe this novel much less rate it To begin with it doesn’t really feel like a novel it opens with a recitation of facts that introduce our time period setting and major figures There’s a deliberate distance we feel from many of the characters we rarely enter into their minds or emotions and have to be continually reminded who is who I referred freuently to the cast of characters at the back of the bookBut there is one exception Temujin We do know what he thinks and how he feels Every time Yasushi takes us into his mind and motivations moving from wide panoramas into a laser focus the whole story suddenly opens up and expands “I get him” I found myself saying about halfway through And for a figure as ruthless and enigmatic as Genghis Khan this is no small accomplishment Every decision made in this novel is careful and precise you do not realize that you are being sucked in until you are halfway through and cannot put it down The exploration of character motivations and relationships are sparse but powerful I wept when Temujin now Chinggis Khan realizes that of all his sons it is Jochi the guest the outsider whom he loves most The Blue Wolf would be an excellent guide for a TV series about the Mongols It provides the outline the blueprint the core of what could be fleshed out into something truly stunning 4 stars
