From the author of the bestselling The Dangerous Book for Boys

The Great Khan is dead—and his vast empire, forged through raw courage, tactical brilliance, and indomitable force, hangs in the balance. Now, with the sons of Genghis Khan maneuvering for supremacy, the very qualities that united the fierce Mongol tribes threaten to tear them apart.

Genghis’s tough and canny heir, Ogedai, is on the verge of becoming the new Khan. Inexplicably, Ogedai has delayed his coronation to complete a project many deem a folly: the building of Karakorum, a magnificent city amid the wild plains. His decision emboldens his arrogant brother Chagatai to violently challenge him, leaving their noble sibling Tolui caught between them. Yet even as they clash, the Khan’s armies extend his reach farther than ever before, into southern China and across the rugged mountains of Russia to the vulnerable heart of Europe, where the most courageous warriors the West commands await the coming onslaught.

    " It may sound boring, as I say this about all Igguldens books, brilliant. This book not only looks at the Mongols and the violence, but also how they justfied carrying it out!It was totally normal to simply take, by force, what they wanted. Ghengis is dead, leaving behind a nation in turmoil and untrusting, this does not stop their desire to expand and the battles are wonderfully described and flow through the book. I enjoyed reading this book and struggled at times to stop reading it. Iggulden seems to improve with every book and 'Empire of Silver' endorses this. Brian A.Mynott "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Navaf | 1/24/2014

    " Good reading for historical context of the Mongol empire. Characters were weak and the events were condensed. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 ashish chatterjee | 1/17/2014

    " Brilliant. Iggulden continues the series without a falter after Genghis' death. Why can't history in school have been so awesome? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Matthew | 1/9/2014

    " One of the three best historical novels/series I've ever read! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Susan Samuel | 1/2/2014

    " I enjoyed this book immensely; found it a fitting & worthy conclusion to the Conqueror saga. I await the next Conn Iggulden journey into the past with great anticipation. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tara O'Sullivan | 1/1/2014

    " Another fantastic book in the series. The author's writing doesn't improve (and doesn't really need to), but it is not lacking what the other books achieved. If you like the others in this series, you won't be disappointed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Daniel York | 12/21/2013

    " Another excellent work on the Mongol empire by Iggulden. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Richard Forsythe | 10/15/2013

    " Thoroughly absorbing and entertaining read continuing the Genghis Khan series. The action is fast paced and the characterisation excellent. He is a master story teller. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tanya | 4/1/2013

    " The 4th instalment in the series - good, rollicking tale that sends you off to find an atlas. Need to go find the next one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jean-luc | 2/23/2013

    " Very good book in that Conqueror collection. It seemed to me that it stayed closer to history than the previous book. But once again, very good character build up, good scene description. A good read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steven | 2/3/2013

    " Not as good as the previous books but still a good read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nay Lin Soe | 11/30/2012

    " The Mongol story continues with where the death of Genghis left off (in the first 3 of Conquerors series). Not as breath-taking as the previous ones--fewer battle scenes and more politics. Still a very good novel. Look forward to reading the next in the series--about Kublai Khan. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bill | 9/19/2012

    " The sons, grandsons, and generals of Genghis Khan continue to expand the Mongol Empire (from the Pacific in the east and to the Atlantic in the west) but power is not shared equally or well. Iggulden continues to provide a wonderful look into the social, political, and military lives of the Khans. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 J.S. Dunn | 6/8/2012

    " Trite, an average read except for his pleasant "voice". "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Veronica Sanche | 4/1/2012

    " Fantastic novel. A lot less detailed violence althought hundreds of thousands of people were slaughtered but one became more involved with the life of the key figures this time. The struggle for power and control of massive areas of land by the next generation of Genghis is intriguing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Duckie | 1/23/2012

    " Not quite as engaging as the first three, probably because none of the remaining characters show quite the same brilliance and charisma as Genghis. Still, it was an entertaining read, and it's a necessary bridge to the next book where Kublai's story begins. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bookwyrm13 | 12/27/2011

    " for anyone whos pondered what the death of Ghengis meant for Mongolia, this is a good picture of the possibilities "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pmercado | 12/18/2011

    " A extremly good addition to the Conqueror series, it will take your imagination to a whole new level while reading this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 George | 10/8/2011

    " It was like a ripping yarn adventure you use to get years ago. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Judith | 5/5/2011

    " Not my faovrite, runs a poor second to the Caesar and Ghenghis books. There is no definitive central character, can't figure out who the hero is. "

    A soap opera for guys!

    Set against bloody battles around the world, the family of Genghis Khan maneuver around each other to become to Khan. Conn really gives a lot of life to people who, largely forgotten, formed the world we live in now.

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bcoghill | 3/2/2011

    " Nice adventure read in the old fashion expansion on a little known period of history with lots of action packed in for a reader of the current era. I have very much enjoyed this series. Not so much the Roman series. I chalk it up to Iggulden learning the craft of historical fiction. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Richard | 2/4/2011

    " Thoroughly absorbing and entertaining read continuing the Genghis Khan series. The action is fast paced and the characterisation excellent. He is a master story teller. "
