The story of the third great Moghul Emperor, Akbar, leader of a triumphant dynasty which contained the seeds of its own destruction.
Alex Rutherford is Diana Preston and her husband Michael.
As with the two previous books, this is well researched, while the deadly intrigues and the sight and sounds of the Moghul court are colourfully and effectively portrayed. The battle scenes are exciting...the writing is seamless. This series has developed into a fascinating insight into the rise and fall of a great and glorious dynasty.
