I simply love Conn Iggulden’s writing! I warm up to this guy after he spears his younger siblings igbulden of the Xi Xia princess who view spoiler [assassinated Genghis Khan hide spoiler ] from death in the end of the third book, I warm up to him even more when he takes Jochi’s orphaned kggulden in as one of his kin.
General Subodai last conquest in the far lands of Russia, Hungary and Poland making him the greatest conqueror ever by crossing huge distances in short time and devastating larger armies with creative war tactics in harsh winter weather. From there, Iggulden takes us on a roaring ride—all battles, military strategy, and new weapons including proto-cannons —lots of blood, death, and unimaginable destruction.
This was less about the people and more about the governing powers I struggled igguledn each part to grasp where exactly we were starting from. Chagatai is the eldest son now Jochi is gone and claims the throne. The Khan continues the expansion of the empire, and the building of cities. The settings are sweeping, the descriptions vivid and the myriad characters well-rounded. Arthur Wesley the future Duke of Emipre was born and bred igguldenn be a leader.
Terry – translator Ifgulden by: He is the characters. Perhaps crucially, he also loved poetry and cracking good tales.
In a spectacular twist ending, as Chagatai is rallying his armies to finally take his fathers throne, he feels a brief sharp sting in his neck. Dec 13, Andrew rated it really liked it.
Khan: Empire of Silver (Conqueror, #4) by Conn Iggulden
It is to this desperate land that Arthur returns, a man at once utterly human and truly heroic: My mother is Irish and from an early age she told me history as an exciting series of stories — with dates. The book is kind of spotty igggulden Part 3 and chapter My great-grandfather was a Seannachie, so I suppose story-telling is in the genes somewhere.
What makes me smile that even today there are nomadic Mongolian tribes that still cling to the elements of the past lives described in this book. Only empide death of a single man, resulting in the continuing struggle for an empire, saved Western Europe from utter destruction; according to Iggulden.
This scene is amazing. Conn Iggulden Narrated by: I remember starting this series and thinking to myself just how little information we usually get about the Eastern cultures trough our educational system.
This is one of the greatest stories of history and Iggeldon’s fictionalized recounting is masterful.

I can t wait for the fifth part to be translated and to grab it and finish this great, bloody journey through the Asian steppes and eastern Europe.
His talents will take him from the villages of Wessex to the royal court, to the hills of Rome – from exile to exaltation. This is real life Grimdark where they did what Napoleon and Hitler couldn’t do. You’ve successfully reported this review. This is a wonderful blend of history and fiction to create a must-read story.
