Noor-Jahan, for all her cunningness and shrewd mind May 20, Shihab Azhar rated it liked it. Elspeth and Claire are sisters separated by an ocean. No doubt Empire of the Moghul 2 and Empire of Moghul 4 are my favorites in the series. When she comes to the attention of the local mill owner, a series of wrenching and violent events unfolds, culminating in her disappearance.

But the exhilaration of ghe quickly fades as Telemachus and his men struggle to find any ships worth looting. Now I can’t hold back from reading the remaining parts of the series.


Humayun is a well-meaning but dissolute ruler, prone to rash judgement and easily manipulated. An average book for the average ruler – who grew in the wrong time, to the wrong father – Akbar.

But what does his myth really mean? Samantha Harper is a journalist desperate for a break. Once Jahangir is tempted, his talented wife, Mehrunissa, is only too willing to take up the reins of empire.

This book, like the previous two, fails to cater to my expectations. This episode, as well as his machinations to get back Mehrunissa give us a sense of the ruthlessness in him. The author’s distinguished style of elaborating minute details, while creating the larger canvas for the story is well established. But his most dangerous enemy may be on his own side A must-read military adventure for fans of Bernard Cornwell and Simon Scarrow.

As Jahangir succumbs increasingly to opium and alcohol possibly encouraged by the queen she takes control of the running of the empire and then tries to ensure that Jahangir’s successor would also be her puppet. The most gripping, heartwrenching page-turner of the year Emily Gunnis.


As we talnted, Shah Jahan proved to be a capable ruler. Especially when she’s had A Brilliant Idea. Yes, it will mean breaking a few rules, but – as Max always says – they’re not her rules. And to continue feeding her lust for power, she stood like a wall between Jahangir and his ablest son Hhrone Shah Jahan.

In essence, it actually thrlne out to be a better read than its predecessor. Empire of the Moghul: The young pirate Telemachus has impressed Captain Bulla with his courage and skill, and has been made captain of a small ship, Galatea, with his loyal friend Geras as taintwd mate.

Book review: ‘Empire of The Moghul: The Tainted Throne’

Jahangir, the triumphant Moghul Emperor and ruler of most of the Indian subcontinent, is doomed. Her baby is adopted against her will. Just as the tanted of Timur the Great share intelligence, physical strength and utter ruthlessness, they also have a great weakness for wine and opium. It’s great for even a non history buff.

Empire of the Moghul: The Tainted Throne
