Alex RutherFord - The Tainted throne
...Empire of The MOGHUL - The Tainted Throne...
."."."....The brutal battle for power continues in the fourth book in the epic Empire of the Moghul series.".".".....
Agra, India, 1606.
Jahangir, the triumphant Moghul Emperor and ruler of most of the Indian
subcontinent, is doomed. No amount of wealth and ruthlessness can
protect him from his sons' desire for power. The glorious Moghul throne
is worth any amount of bloodshed and betrayal; once Jahangir raised
troops against his own father; now he faces a bloody battle with
Khurram, the ablest of his warring sons.
Worse is to come. Just
as the heirs of Timur the Great share intelligence, physical strength
and utter ruthlessness, they also have a great weakness for wine and
opium. Once Jahangir is tempted, his talented wife, Mehrunissa, is only
too willing to take up the reins of empire. And with Khurram and his
half-brothers each still determined to be their father's heir, the
savage battle for the Moghul throne will be more ferocious than even
Timur could have imagined..
