Publisher Description

No.1 bestselling author Conn Iggulden takes on the story of the mighty Kublai Khan. An epic tale of a great and heroic mind; his action-packed rule; and how in conquering one-fifth of the world’s inhabited land, he changed the course of history forever.

A scholar who conquered an empire larger than those of Alexander or Caesar.

A warrior who would rule a fifth of the world with strength and wisdom.

A man who betrayed a brother to protect a nation.

From a young scholar to one of history’s most powerful warriors, Conqueror tells the story of Kublai Khan – an extraordinary man who should be remembered alongside Julius Caesar, Alexander the Great and Napoleon Bonaparte as one of the greatest conquerors the world has ever known.

It should have been a golden age, with an empire to dwarf the lands won by the mighty Genghis Khan. Instead, the vast Mongol nation is slowly losing ground, swallowed whole by their most ancient enemy. A new generation has arisen, yet the long shadow of the Great Khan still hangs over them all …

Kublai dreams of an empire stretching from sea to sea. But to see it built, this scholar must first learn the art of war. He must take his nation’s warriors to the ends of the known world. And when he is weary, when he is wounded, he must face his own brothers in bloody civil war.

An entertaining series!

I started with book one and couldn’t stop. I really enjoyed this series. I love the history, the character development, and the plot. The battle scenes are detailed but not confusing and long. A very good read.

Conqueror

I liked this series. This particular book, Conqueror, was very hard to put down. Even though I wasn't particularly fond of the ending, I appreciated Iggulden's reasoning behind it. I like the touch at the end of each novel where Iggulden takes the time to decifer fact from fiction and includes his thought process for telling the story. I'm giving this four stars instead of five only because there is another novel that can be added to the series and all indications from Iggulden are that he is done.
