A succession of ruthless men have seized power in the wake of Genghis Khan’s death—all descendants of the great leader, but none with his indomitable character. One grandson, Guyuk, strains the loyalties of the tribes to the breaking point, and another, Mongke, brutally eliminates the opposition and dispatches his younger brothers Kublai and Hulegu to far-flung territories.

Hulegu displays his barbarity with the savage destruction of Baghdad and his clash with the Khan’s age-old enemies, the cult of assassins. But it is Kublai—refined and scholarly, always considered too thoughtful to take power—who will devise new ways of warfare and conquest as he builds the dream city of Xanadu and pursues the ultimate prize: the ancient empire of Sung China. His gifts will serve him well when an epic civil war breaks out among brothers, the outcome of which will literally change the world.

    " Conqueror is the epitome of Conn Iggulden's skill as a researcher and writer. From the first page to the last, Iggulden expertly creates a plot that captivates the reader. Every scene in this book blends seamlessly with the next and builds apprehension at every turn. Also, Iggulden is able to develop every character in this book in a way that invests the reader into their future. This is simply a fantastic piece of historical fiction. "

    " Kublai Khan is now in the forefront of the mongul nation. The author skillfully weaves the story of the diminishing mongul power and the efforts of Kublai Khan to return the monguls to teir former glory. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Daryl Conley | 1/6/2014

    " I have recommended this series maybe more than any other I've read. The 5th book was no disappointment for me as it concluded another important chapter in the Mongol nation. It seems like it could be a boring topic, but have found few stories or people more compelling than Genghis Con and his followers. Incredible story on so many levels! "
