Humayun is a well-meaning but dissolute ruler, prone to rash judgement and easily manipulated. A combination of battlefield defeats from Bengali ruler Sher Shah and treachery from his half-brothers Kamran and Askari leave Humayun with only the Afghan portions of the empire. Humayun spends the next fifteen years rebuilding his strength, partly with Persian aid. Barely six months after rebuilding the Mughul Empire, Humayun breaks his neck when he tumbled down a flight of stairs. Ruler of the World[ edit ] Akbar , a bold ruler, faced many problems to control a vast kingdom.

From time to time I want to push myself out of my comfort zone and try something I would not normally read and this book was one of those times.
Rome and Romans for example. I have more misses than hits when reading historical fiction based on them, because I have little interest in the era from a fictional standpoint, I am much better with non fiction on them. Sometimes it works out when I push myself to read in these eras.
I have found some good books by doing it. But sometimes it does not work out Enter stage right, Raiders from the North. Sadly for Raiders from the North and I am sad about it as I think for anybody who is not me, this could be a very good read I pushed myself out of my comfort zone at the wrong time in my life.
Birds are nesting, singing, darting about. Forget winter wonderlands, here is an Autumnal wonderland. I think I have realised that if I am going to force myself to read books in a least favourite era, I should save it for Winter when the outdoors are not calling me away. Or perhaps even during the scorching heat of Summer, when I seek escape behind closed doors, in an airconditioned room. I know I have not given this book its due.
Another time, another place, another day, another Season and this may have been a very different review full of robust commentary. Hopefully this will fully explain why it is that this book got those miserable 2 stars. I do not really think it is a 2 star book, if that makes sense to you. I think the book is probably a 3 star or even maybe a 4 star. The writing is good, the story seemed intelligently done.
I can only rate based on my experience and while I think the book deserves more stars, my personal experience with it, dictates that I give it only 2.
