    This book’s plot revolves around Bhishma, the patriarch of Hastinapur, who is finding it difficult to keep the empire united. His able Prime Minister Vidur is assisting him in this job.
    On the other hand, down South, the powerful Guru of the Southern states is waiting to make his move on Hastinapur. He wants to impose his dark will on all of India at any cost. The kingdom of Hastinapur is being ruled by the blind king Dhritarashtra and his queen with a foreign origin, Gandhari.
    The peace of the throne is being threatened by Kunti, who is a rival queen. It is her ultimate dream to see her first-born seated on the throne of Hastinapur. In this sinister quest of hers, an unscrupulous priest comes to her aid and ensures that Prince Duryodhana does not become king.
    Parallel to this story, readers will find the character of Eklavya, a young outcast who wants to become a mighty warrior despite being from a lower caste. Other important character who plays a pivotal role in this book is Karna, who travels south to become a mighty warrior and archer. Balrama and Ashwadhama are also given significant roles in the plot.
    It is obvious from the book that the author likes to research his facts thoroughly and that’s what makes his books an excellent read. His writing is laid back and he takes his time to present the book to his readers.
    Readers who like to read books on mythical characters and are fans of epic stories will find this book very engrossing.
