3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Jennifer Cameron-Smith on Dec 28 2010
Format: Paperback
In 1229, Genghis Khan is dead, and his son Ogedai has been named his successor as the Great Khan. Ogedai is Genghis's third son. The night before Ogedai is due to be confirmed as Genghis's successor, troops loyal to his elder brother Chagatai storm Ogedai's palace at Karakorum and attempt to murder him. This attempt fails and once Ogedai is confirmed, he sends his brother to conquer the south. Tsubodai, Genghis Khan's great general, is sent west: through Russia and into Europe. Ogedai himself moves east for further conquest in China.

The continued expansion of the empire founded by Genghis results in some epic battle scenes, which Mr Iggulden brings to life, as well as some fascinating description of strategy. If the Mongol armies had not been withdrawn from Europe after Ogedai's death, no army in Europe would have been able to stop them. In the context of the story (and of the history), the decision to withdraw makes perfect sense - but it didn't stop me wondering about the consequences.

The history is fascinating, and Mr Iggulden uses it as the basis for a terrific novel. Genghis's brothers Khasar and Kachiun still have a role, but they are aging. A new generation - of Genghis's grandchildren - is making a mark. Batu, Baidur and Mongke seem the most promising.

Mr Iggulden's historical note at the end of the novel is helpful, and reminded me of how much story there is still left to tell. Initially, it took me longer to become engrossed in this novel: none of the characters had the same appeal for me as Genghis. But I soon became swept up in the events, and found myself wanting to know more about the Mongol exploits in Europe. And the descriptions of battlefields and strategy had me completely engrossed.

Format: Hardcover
Conn Iggulden has once again produced a fascinating and interesting novel that is hard to put down and highly enjoyable to read as he takes you into the world of the Mongol Empire at its peak and during a critical time in history. He proves with this novel that the world can rest on the shoulders of one mans decision, but at the same time takes some liberties with historical accuracy to make his novel that much more interesting. With this in mind it only falls slightly short of his previous novels, but still makes one heck of a good read.

Format: Paperback
the entire series is riveting and gives a caffeine-like jolt just to read about the intelligence and single-mindedness of the khans especially Genghis. History is alive when written by Conn Iggulden. He chose a fascinating subject and worked it up thoroughly.
