A gripping experience, mythology at it's best
Reviewed in India on 18 October 2018
This is the story of Satyavati, born to a king, abandoned by him, who grew up as a fisher girl, then turned into a cunning lady willing to go any extent to become a queen and safeguard her progeny. The grand matriarch of the Kuru family, instrumental in starting the events leading to the battle of Kurukshetra. The story shows Mahabharata in a new light, the back story of one of the most important characters- Bhishm who was born as Devavrat, his life story and the role of Satyavati in it.
This book is mythology at it's best with exhaustive information and several intricacies minutely connected.
A must read for everyone.
