Did anyone read Shadow and Bone? I personally found Netflix's version made the main characters so annoying......
I did with the audiobook version. I enjoyed it but it didn't generate enough interest for me to quickly proceed to the 2nd book. But will keep in mind.

The Great Empires of Asia by Jim Masselos, Jonathan Fenby

Overview:
Asian empires led the world economically, scientifically and culturally for hundreds of years, and posed a constant challenge to the countries of Europe. How and why did those empires gain such power, and lose it? What legacies did they leave?

This major book brings together a team of distinguished historians and 200 illustrations to survey seven great Asian empires that rose and fell between 800 CE and the mid-20th century: the Mongol Empire, Ming Dynasty of China, Khmer Empire, Ottoman Empire, Safavid Empire of Persia, Mughal Empire of India and the Meiji Restoration in Japan. Compellingly written, The Great Empires of Asia shows how those seven empires played a key role in forming today’s global civilization – and how, with the renewed ascendancy of Asia, their legacies will help shape the continent’s future.

Personal review: easy and readily digestible; the history version of "pop-sci", can be read by any member of the public.
