Description

From the author of the bestselling The Dangerous Book for Boys
 
BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Conn Iggulden's Conqueror.

The Great Khan is dead—and his vast empire, forged through raw courage, tactical brilliance, and indomitable force, hangs in the balance. Now, with the sons of Genghis Khan maneuvering for supremacy, the very qualities that united the fierce Mongol tribes threaten to tear them apart.

Genghis’s tough and canny heir, Ogedai, is on the verge of becoming the new Khan. Inexplicably, Ogedai has delayed his coronation to complete a project many deem a folly: the building of Karakorum, a magnificent city amid the wild plains. His decision emboldens his arrogant brother Chagatai to violently challenge him, leaving their noble sibling Tolui caught between them. Yet even as they clash, the Khan’s armies extend his reach farther than ever before, into southern China and across the rugged mountains of Russia to the vulnerable heart of Europe, where the most courageous warriors the West commands await the coming onslaught.

Publishers Weekly Review

Oct 11, 2010 – Iggulden's smashing fourth installment to his Mongol series (Genghis: Bones of the Hills, etc.) picks up after Genghis's death as his three sons and four grandsons vie to be the Mongol leader. After son Ogedai is named khan, one of his brothers offers himself as a sacrifice; the other is dispatched to rule a distant kingdom; and the four grandsons begin to hatch schemes of their own. While the khan builds the city of Karakorum, his armies fight the Chinese in the east and discover the enemy's effective use of gunpowder against the Mongol horse archers. In the west, a mighty Mongol army commanded by Genghis's best general, Tsubodai, crushes the Russians and the Poles in a series of brilliant campaigns, and as the Mongol horde sacks the cities of Buda and Pest, only the arrival of a disastrous message from Karakorum saves Europe from destruction and Mongol domination. Add assassinations (failures and successes), jealousy, treachery, revenge, betrayal, and surprising plot twists, and Iggulden has created another rip-roaring historical that accurately depicts the cruelty of the age.

Awesome!!!

Another great book to read. I have read all Conn Iggulden books and this one compliments his other great novels wonderfully. I was skeptical at first as I truly enjoyed following the life of Genghis Kahn and couldn't imagine how the story could continue without him, however I was pleasantly surprised.

Great!

Its another awesome book in an amazing series, Conn Iggulden continues to be one of the best authors I've ever read.

Khan: Empire of Silver
