Kniha Raiders from the Borth je prvá časť cyklu Empire of the Moghul, čo je historický kvintet, ktorý nám rozpovie príbeh dosiaľ nepoznaný vzostupu a pádu najmocnejšej, zámožnej a čarovnej dynastie v histórii.
The epic story of the rise and fall of one of the most powerful and
opulent dynasties in history. It is 1494 when the ruler of Ferghana dies
in an extraordinary accident. His only son, twelve-year-old Babur,
faces a seemingly impossible challenge.
Young Babur is determined to live up to the example of his great ancestor, Tamburlaine -- Timur the Warrior -- whose conquests transformed the face of the earth from Delhi to the Mediterranean, from wealthy Persia to the wildernesses along the Volga. But he is dangerously young to inherit a kingdom. Before Babur can summon enough warlords to declare him the rightful king of Ferghana, plots against his crown, even his life, are hatching.
And soon, as his obsession with Timur's legacy and the fabled city of Samarkand grows, and Babur becomes a man, he will discover that even the bravest and most fearless leader can be betrayed. With the wisest of advisers and most courageous of warriors by his side, Babur can achieve a great destiny and found an empire in India, but every step of his journey will be fraught with danger, in a world of tribal rivalries, rampaging armies and ruthlessly ambitious enemies.
