Amazing book. This book offers a different perspective on the Mahabharata. I had been looking forward to this books release since the first book  Roll of the Dice: Duryodhana's Mahabharata (Ajaya Book 1)  I would definitely recommend reading this book as it broadens your world view and offers a never before thought of perspective from the antagonists side of the war.
Some parts of the book touch upon the philosophy of Hinduism (Which is surprisingly very well researched!), while other parts go for an almost atheistic view of the Mahabharata. The main theme revolves around the caste system and how it was misinterpreted throughout the ages.
While some parts might seem like a never ending rant about caste-this and caste-that, the book offers a wonderful insight into the the mind of Dur(Su)yodhana. The characters are very memorable and there are quite a few action filled battle scenes as well.
Overall, this is a BRILLIANT, WELL-WRITTEN, WELL-RESEARCHED book.
I would definitely recommend this book to people of all age groups as this would keep you and your mind occupied for quiet sometime even after you are done reading the book.
