About the Novel
In the late twelfth century, across the sweeping Mongolian
grasslands, brilliant, charismatic Temujin ascends to power, declaring
himself the Great, or Genghis, Khan. But it is the women who stand
beside him who ensure his triumph….

After her mother
foretells an ominous future for her, gifted Borte becomes an outsider
within her clan. When she seeks comfort in the arms of aristocratic
traveler Jamuka, she discovers he is the blood brother of Temujin, the
man who agreed to marry her and then abandoned her long before they
could wed.

Temujin will return and make Borte his queen, yet
it will take many women to safeguard his fragile new kingdom. Their
daughter, the fierce Alaqai, will ride and shoot an arrow as well as any
man. Fatima, an elegant Persian captive, will transform her desire for
revenge into an unbreakable loyalty. And Sorkhokhtani, a demure widow,
will position her sons to inherit the empire when it begins to fracture
from within.

In a world lit by fire and ruled by the sword, the
tiger queens of Genghis Khan come to depend on one another as they fight
and love, scheme and sacrifice, all for the good of their family…and
the greatness of the People of the Felt Walls.

Rainbows on the Moon

were the Golden Family of Genghis Khan.  Yet their lives were anything
but golden as they struggled to hold together the very center of the
largest empire the world has ever known.  An empire that was built in
one lifetime, and would have been destroyed in the next had it not been
for the wives and daughters of the Great Khan.  This is historical
fiction at its finest.” — Gary Corby, author of
The Marathon Conspiracy
