Hulegu displays his barbarity with the savage destruction of Baghdad and his clash with the Khans age-old enemies, the cult of assassins.

And so my Ghengis Khan adventure comes to an end. I have loved reading this series and have learnt so much about the Khan Dynasty. The books were brilliantly written.
This series is an absolute must read for any historical fiction lover (although these books were quite close to true-history). Absolute 5 star!

Nute My favorite kind of reading: reading for pleasure and a simultaneous learning experience!👍🏽😀 1mo
Yoricke_SouthAfrica @Nute I could not have said it any better. It's been a few days since I've finished the series, and I still find myself thinking about Mongolia and the Khans 🤔 1mo

Just starting the fifth and final book in the Ghengis Khan series. Excited and a little sad that this magnificent journey is almost over. I am determined to enjoy every last word.
