The war for power in Aryavarta – the realm of the noble, has been going on between the Firstborns and the Angirasa family for generations. The first two books in The Aryavarta Chronicles series transported you to the mythical lands where warriors, sages, emperors and Secret Keepers battled and deceived each other for supremacy. The third and final book in the series- KURUKSHETRA, will see the culmination of this exhilarating epic, with more twists and revelations along the way.
We have 20 copies of The Aryavarta Chronicles: Kurukshetra up for review!
Overview of the book:
The empire that was Aryavarta fades under the shadow of doom. As the bitter struggle to gain control of the divided kingdom ensues, Krishna Dwaipayana Vyasa of the Firstborn and the Secret Keeper of the Firewrights can only watch as their own blood, their kin, savage and kill on the fields of Kurukshetra. Restraint and reason have deserted the rulers who once protected the land and they manipulate, scheme and kill with abandon – for victory is all that matters.
At the heart of the storm stands Govinda Shauri, driven by fickle allies and failed kings, to the very brink of darkness. He may well be the greatest danger Aryavarta has faced yet, for he is determined to change things forever. Reforging the forsaken realm in the fire of his apocalyptic wrath, he prepares to destroy everything he loves and make the ultimate sacrifice of them all for the sake of one last hope: that humanity will rise, that there will be revolution.
In the spectacular, entrancing final episode of The Aryavarta Chronicles, Krishna Udayasankar’s recreation of the world of the Mahabharata establishes her as a storyteller of formidable power and imagination.
