It was awesome.. a must watch...
18 December 2014 | by findmuzuSee all my reviews

Cast roles are great. The way Mongolian empire shown in contrast with Chinese is remarkable. Song dynasty and Yuan dynasty clashes with exquisite sets and costumes. Horse riding scenes were breath taking. I recommend this and its must watch especially for those who are into history. Although i found this to be bit short of only 10 episodes, i wished they could have extended more to show the aftermath. I am eager for the next season and i hope they will release it soon. Loved the role of kublai khan and Song chancellor too. Earlier i was skeptical regarding show whether to watch it or not after reading several critics but believe me u should watch it for sure.
