Khan: Empire of Silver (Audiobook) by Conn Iggulden |
The over-all quality is high, although I still find that the first book was the ighulden by far. This felt more like a drama maybe?

Empire of Silver
Want to Read saving…. I was born in the normal way inand vaguely remember half-pennies and sixpences.
Genghis is dead though and his designated heir has a weak heart. Also amazing what the Mongols accomplished and what else they might have done had things broken sliver a big differently.
With Genghis dead, the new Khan builds a city.
I particularly appreciated the way that family resentments and vendettas are carried over from previous books, making this feel like just one part of an epic series. The khan novels continue to be massively interesting, adding great plot to historical facts. This book was a continuation of the story of the people in Genghis Khan’s rule, but I wasn’t loving this one as much as I have the others. This is truly a book that beats Bernard Cornwell at his own game.
