Condor Trilogy

The Condor Trilogy is a trilogy of three wuxia fiction novels by Jinyong. The trilogy began with the decline of Jin Dynasty and Song Dynasty and the rise of Mongolian Empire. The story ended more than a hundred years later with the establishment of Ming dynasty. The characters in the trilogy played significant roles in the rise and fall of these nations.

The books in the trilogy are:
