Just read the prologue of the book, and I'm pretty sure the story line would be intriguing and it'd definitely be a page turner.
It's about a Brahmin girl and the king of Yaduvanshis, who turned her into a fearsome woman warrior!
She seeks to take revenge and get caught into some "magical chakravivha".
Her journey from being a blood thirsty warrior to the saviour of the society which dismayed her, is definitely an interest creator. (Even though I'm having my exams, I don't think I could control my urge to read it before exams)
Thanks Amazon 💝
The chronicles of kosala trilogy- Book 1
Author- Sandeep Nayyar (@sandeepnayyar20 )
The story has two streams that it starts with. One is when a yong Bramhin girl Shatvari, gets friendly with a Shudhra boy Gunjan. The society then is not mature enough to accept this friendship due to the cast system and it’s discrimination.
The other is the young but smart king of Mekal, Neel. After the kingdom is attacked once, bu South Kosal, he decides to visit the capital to study the enemy and get acquainted with their weaknesses.
There are some amazing characters in the book and the story flows easily. The author has done a good job in keeping the readers entertained as well as anticipating to the very end.
I especially feel that Vaishali is one of the main characters of this saga thus far. A non-recognized hero who made all the efforts to get victory in hopeless circumstances.
Can not wait for the other two books to be released.
❤️ totally love Vaishali as a super strong women
❤️ Neel has become my latest crush
❤️ there is so much importance given to art, music and learning.
❤️ medium paced storyline
💔 the weekness in Shatvari
Neel, the ruler of Mekal state, is one of the few independent rulers who find themselves constantly in the middle of tussles between North and South Kosala. He together with his trusted friend and advisor, therefore, decides to spy on the state of South Kosala for future dangers having already faced an attack from them. On the other hand, Shatvari, a Brahmin daughter is on a quest to discover the powers of a secret weapon after being thrown out due to social injustice, and who is now forced to live among the Chandals in graveyards. She has vowed to avenge her past by overthrowing the so-called aristocracy. However, greedy eyes are always prying over the characters to take advantage of any situation. Will Neel succeed in maintaining the independence of his kingdom? Will Shatvari succeed in bringing justice to her son? Where is the secret weapon hidden and who has it? One must read to find out.
This book will appeal to a lot of readers interested in historical fiction and adventures. The author has done adequate research in order to detail the life and times of ancient Aryan civilization. The emphasis on human emotions and the sense of duty among the characters is commendable. There is a foreshadowing of dharma along with karma in every plot and sub-plot inside these pages. However, the story could have been more interesting if certain events, such as change of heart of a few characters, did not happen so suddenly. But overall this is an interesting story with a promise of a sequel.
