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.

Marvellous

I thought this may just be a poor add on to the Ghengis series, however I found it just as encapsulating.
I have loved every one of Iggulden's historic fiction books, I just wish there were more of them!
While Iggulden may be guilty of bending historic fact, or missing out key occurrences, I find the stories absolutely riveting.

Once again a book I could not put down

Politics, battles, fast pace, great characters... Perfect to get lost in

Another fantastic read from Iggulden

Conquerer picks up where Empire of Silver left off and is a fantastic story, that takes the reader into Mongol life in the years after Gengis died. Conn Iggulden writes historical fiction so well, and I thoroughly enjoyed it from the first page to the last. It was the first full novel I have read on my iPad and that was a great experience in itself too.
I would say that the reader would do best to read the whole of the series in order rather than this as a stand alone novel, and I can't wait to see what historical figure the author turns his hand to next!
