I am currently reading this book.It is written by Alex Rutherford.Raiders from the North is the first novel in The Empire of Moghul quintet.Raiders from the North chronicles the life of Babur and how after his father died he took the reins of his kingdom Ferghana at the tender age of 12.Babur from a very young age had to learn to defend himself and his kingdom from enemies outside and also from within the family.It more importantly chronicles his heroics against Shaibani Khan ,the Uzbek king who is bent on killing the blood relations and lineage of Timur.
It is very well written till now will give an update once I am done with reading the book
