This is the forth book in Conn Iggulden's Conqueror series about the life and time of the Khan Empire. The first three where concerned about the life of Genghis Khan where this one is mainly about his son Ogedai Khan, his struggle for power with his brother Chagtai and the Empires move into eastern Europe. I must admit at first I thought this a book to far and he should have stopped with the death of Genghis Khan. However, as the book moved along I found myself again being totally caught up in it. Also, althought this is a work of fiction, in the Conqueror series Iggulden does keep to the historic facts.Because of this, you are left with an understanding of how the shifts and turns in the history of this period did to some degree set a course that affected all our lives. If I were to say anymore I would have to warn against spoilers. A really good book if you like action packed historical novals.
