`A totally absorbing narrative filled with authentic historical characters and sweeping action set in an age of horrifying but magnificent savagery. The writing is as compelling as the events described and kept me eagerly leaping from one page to the next'
The Moghul quintet of historical novels tells the untold story of the rise and fall of one of the most powerful, opulent and glamorous dynasties in history. Spanning two hundred turbulent years and the lives of six very different emperors, the Moghul series will bring to life a people whose skill and bravery on the battlefield would be matched by their love of luxury, their passion for beauty and their unbridled ambition. For all their brilliance, however, the Moghuls were deeply flawed; with no law of primogeniture, Moghul princes would fight each other and even their fathers for the crown, following their mantra, 'Throne or Coffin!'. Book One will tell the story of the charismatic Babur, warrior and ruler of Ferghana, a kingdom north of Afghanistan. Determined to emulate his warrior ancestors, Babur's hunger for an empire leads him to attempt to re-establish Timur's legacy around the fabled city of Samarkand, accompanied by his loyal army of followers.See all Product description

A sweeping historical novel of life of the first moghul emperor Babur. I had no knowledge of this region or it's history so found the book very interesting.
