Empire of The Moghul: The Tainted Throne Author: Jahangir is hot on the trail of his rebel son Khusrau, who has declared himself emperor.
The battle is quickly over and Khusrau is captured. Thus begins the fourth title from the Empire Of The Moghul series, establishing Jahangir as a ruthless ruler, insecure about his throne and determined to nip any dissent in the bud.
When he conspires the second time, his eyelids are sewn. Like book three, The Tainted Throne too deals with the relationship between emperor and crown prince, who in this case is Khurram the future Shah Jahan.
However, while Akbar was almost eclipsed by Jahangir in the last book, this time the characters are far more balanced. Mehrunissa, better known as Nur Jahan, is fascinating.
The Tainted Throne
Alex Rutherford has deftly imagined how she and Jahangir came to be married. She also created a rift between him and Khurram in order to maintain her own power. Her machinations against Khurram keep the book ticking.
However, despite the build-up thanks to the enmity between Khurram and Mehrunissa, the end comes a bit too soon. Khurram first defeats Khusrau and then Shahriyar to free his two sons and become the emperor.
As a result, Khurram orders their death.
