5.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant end to an amazing Hiatorical Trilogy!, 20 Feb. 2009
This review is from: Bones of the Hills (Conqueror, Book 3) (Conqueror 3) (Hardcover)
WOW! What an ending to what is probably the best historical fiction i've ever read. Iggulden has created a world were as a reader I can close my eyes and see myself standing next to the great Genghis himself, I can taste the salt tea in my mouth and feel the air going through my hair as I ride one of the famous Mongol mounts. Yes this trilogy is just that good! As a fan of his previous Emperor novels I knew I would be in for a treat reading this trilogy, but honestly there is no way did I think he could trump his Emperor novels, he has, in every aspect, from his character building to his writing style. All I can say is, brilliant!

In this last sweeping novel Genghis sets his sites on the Muslim world, after his Mongol diplomats are executed on site his sets the mongol nation on course that will see them through wars that they could never have imagined. Pitting his skills against the Shah Mohammed not only that though, he has to solve a crisis in his own ranks as his sons grow to men and argue over the right to lead after Genghis has gone. Will armies of Genghis be destroyed by the Shah's forces or will his sons destroy what he has worked so hard to build?

If you want to read history at it's best then Iggulden creates a masterpiece of history ans story telling, by far one of the best authors around today.

Is it necessary to read these Genghis books in order or can I leap in at number three?
