Geraldine McCaughrean is a genius in her ability to draw the reader in to a part of history that might not immediately spring to mind as being of interest and yet she makes you hungry for more.  Here she draws upon a violent period of India’s history and interplays that history with a wonderful friendship that develops despite horrific dangers.  The characters are brilliantly drawn and the sights and smells of time and place are so well described you feel you are there - on the battlefield, on the plains, and in the cities.  It’s something entirely different from McCaughrean’s most recent novel, Peter Pan in Scarlet, the sequel to Peter Pan but it is equally compelling.

A Piece of Passion from the Editor:  Geraldine McCaughrean is the King Midas of writers – everything she touches turns to gold!   I didn’t know anything about the ancient ruler, Tamburlaine, but in this book she transported me to an exotic and faraway world of intrigue, danger and, ultimately, friendship.
