The best of the trilogy

Marvellous story. This is the best of the trilogy. I recommend reading them in order so the individual characters and their abilities make sense.

Different....but in a great way!

The third and final book in the Empire of Salt trilogy. I have found this trilogy to be very different from anything else I have read/listened to (in a good way). Its original, gripping and on occasions both endearing and funny. The world that Conn Iggulden has created is similar to the approach in game of thrones in that there are many things that we will recognise as being the same as the real world that we occupy, but it has this continual menacing back glow of unimaginable and creative 'magic', it is perhaps that which make this trilogy so different and special. I very much enjoyed Conn Iggulden's historical fiction books and I have struggled to get into his other genre efforts but this Empire of Salt series is explosive, immersive and I couldn't put it down!

Conn Iggulden is great

I love this guy, he gave me an intense love of history and this series of books is an amazing work of fiction that is written in the same style as his historical fiction but with bits of magic thrown in. Love it. Cheers Conn!!

pick a pronunciation

somewhat ruined so far by the fact that the narrator cannot decide if the main characters name is pronounced "telius" or "helius" so alternates between the two throughout. rather a
dumb failure
