    War is upon the realm, but is Aryavarta prepared for what will follow?
    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. ]

    A read to remember...

    It was by accident that I picked Govinda to read and got hooked to it instantly. Kaurava and Kurukshetra were only natural progression. There are a lot of books written about Mahabharata, but the idea presented in the book keeping the important incidents in the story intact is what drew me to the book. I was always of the opinion that the legends of the past were ordinary people who achieved extra ordinary feat due to what they believed in. The concept presented by Krishna Udayashankar here i...

    Only time waste!

    Nothing matches with original epic Mahabharat! How can the author change the characterization in such way? I would like to show some of them, which are totally different from the original:

    1) Epic Yudhishthir was trapped & cheated by kauravas in dice hall, but this Dharma is a ‘compulsive gambler’ who is asked to stop by Syoddhan but he himself desires to play. In epic, Dhritarashtra called them when they were on the way to Indraprashtha, but in this book, Dharma wanted to play again even af...

    Awesome!

    Aryavarta is at the brink of war and the nobles of the realm are forced to choose. The choice is not between Syyodhan and Dharma Yudhishtir but rather between an acquiescence to status quo and a commitment to re-creation. Govinda Shauri will sacrifice everything and everyone to give humanity a fresh start without war. But there are forces at work wanting that cataclysm, thwarting his attempts at sacrifice and he faces opposition from quarters he never expected. When events spin out of his con...

    Complete Waste!

    Absolutely waste of money and time.
    story not at all in congruence with the original.
    Usage of uncommon/tough English words (at so many places) make it all the more PUT-DOWN-able.

    wasted my money on this trilogy.

    A history of ordinary men & women, in & around current India.

    A Must read.
    A story told from a very different view.
    * There are no gods or super natural powers involved - but only science and nature.
    * There are no black & white people i.e. no extremely good & extremely evil people as portrayed in Vyasa's mhabaratha.
    * Every one acts in their own perception of good & evil.
    * The victor writes the history - Vyasa's history.
    * The story telling is very unique and i have to commend the author for the flow and language used.
    * Surely, very wel...

    HIGHS

    The Cover: Eye- catching. The first thing that caught my eyes as soon as I received the book is the sentence at the top: The epic as it was never told before.

    This book has justified the same.

    Author’s note: A beautiful introduction to the book, something one must read without fail before embarking on the journey called ‘Kurukshetra’.

    The hierarchy chart and the cast of characters: A wonderful guide necessary to understand quite a lot about the characters and groups that find a ment...

    Good Book

    Good read .. though this book is a little weak in comparison to other two earlier books in series. But was worth the wait to close the Aryavarta Chronicles.
