Synopsis by Tana Hobart

Cast in the epic tragedy mold, this is the story of a thirteenth century romance. Jack Palance is the son of Genghis Khan and Anita Ekberg is his mistress. Battle between Khan's forces and those of the rebels rages around them but, when peace is finally achieved, Ekberg kills Khan so that her lover, his son, can become the new ruler. He must then lead the Mongol forces into battle himself. A classic case of a romance begetting a murder with greed, tragedy and war all thrown in to make this minor historical adventure.
