Empire of Silver (Conqueror , book 4) by Conn Iggulden
The most fascinating part for me was the Mongol invasion of Europe under the great general Tsubodai. He turns to see his murderer only to find out it was his own servant and messenger.
He was a son of Ghengis Khan and this book covers his reign. The number of characters is never overwhelming and you become emotionally invested in their lives. I like reading about how these women working together, overcoming one crisis after another, weathering all sort of plots, schemes and assassination.
There’s a lot more political intrigue this book than the previous three. The torrid pace of all of the books wmpire the Conqueror series continues, but I just felt that this was one book too far. Would you like to tell us about a lower price? ComiXology Thousands of Digital Comics.

Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. Overall i would say i have found Empire of Silver to be the weakest of the series, although still a brilliant read.
It’s rather chilling how close the world came to not ever having what we now know as “the West” and it had nothing to do with anyone in Europe or Russia having an answer to the Mongol war machine. This is a wonderful blend of history and fiction to create a must-read story. The strong right arm of Genghis and Ogedai, he was the military power behind the throne.
At the time, as I was reading them, I thought they were far fetched and I was a bit of a doubting Thomas. In ‘Wolves of the Plain’, there’s iggklden desperation of Genghis Khan’s early years: English Choose a language for shopping. Withoutabox Submit to Film Festivals.

It was already well established that Iggulden is incredibly well read with the historical aspect of the story and of course with the extremely vivid battle sequences, but relationships and plot twists in this book were sometimes too much to bear.

Their battle tactics and strategies are still taught in modern military schools. How history is such a delicate path of events and decisions. Though it seems a dated idea now, I began teaching when boys were told only girls were good at English, despite the great names that must spring to mind after that statement.
The battles themselves there are famous, and should events have turned out differently, the Mongol tumans would no doubt have conquered sea to sea and claimed the entirety of Europe, altering our history forever. It is these two characters who hold us to the story.
Mar 10, Kevin rated it really liked it. While Ogedai builds a Mongol capital from the ground up, establishing a centre for Empire, Tsubodai pushes the tumans in the khan’s name into Central Asia, Russia and Hungary.
coonn His fear of death, dear of leaving his family behind, fear for his brother, fear for the kingdom all mixed in so few moments. Some skilful manipulation resolves the splits and rivalries between the most powerful, and makes all of the protagonists relatively happy. This was the more action packed part of the book. 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.
