DescriptionThe 4th novel in the bestselling Conqueror series, continuing the life and adventures of the mighty Khan dynasty. Genghis Khan is dead, but his legend and his legacy live on. His son Ogedai has built a white city on a great plain and made a capital for the new nation. Now the armies have gathered to see which of Genghis' sons has the strength to be khan. The Mongol empire has been at peace for two years, but whoever survives will face the formidable might of their great enemy, China's Song dynasty. The great leader Tsubodai sweeps into the west: through Russia, over the Carpathian mountains and into Hungary. The Templar knights have been broken and there is no king or army to stop him reaching France. But at the moment of Tsubodai's greatest triumph, as his furthest scouts reach the northern mountains of Italy, Tsubodai must make a decision that will change the course of history forever.

Reviews for Empire of Silver

Empire of Silver is the fourth book in the epic story of the (Gengis) Khan dynasty.The amazing story of the unified Mongol tribes takes you into the middle of the power struggles and battles against their enemies both within and without, sweeping aside cities and cultures before them.
The hardiness of these people, in their element in the freezing temperatures, and their reliance on skill with the bow, whilst riding,plus their ruthlessness, made them unstoppable!
The reader is taken from China, through Russia, into Hungary, even the destruction of the Templar Knights' army,the last barrier to the conquest of France and beyond.
The great detail that Iggulden employs is breathtaking, and the last paragraph made me realise that this is a part of world history seldom taught, yet it is an integral and important moment for our Western culture today, and how it, and we, may have become so very different! by Janice Margaret Warne
