    Flipkart Official Review:

    It all starts with a question: What shapes human lives, the love of power or the power of love?

    A political thriller like none other! Avanti is the daughter of the leader of an unnamed state. She thinks highly of Chanakya – the political tutor and mentor of Chandragupta Maurya. And guess what? Chanakya is reborn in the present world and is there giving sound advice once again. This time though the decisions are harder, the ones between love and power, and what they hold for Avanti. She needs to choose quick as her would-be tutor needs answers. 
    The book in essence is an invigorating read. It does demand some attention and pondering, however that is only valid given the context. The writing is stark and precise. I would not classify this as a quick read. It will take some time to get through it. Having said that, it is extremely readable and will make you see Chanakya in the modern scenario and situations.


    Chanakya Returns is a political thriller from Timeri N. Murari.

    Summary of the Book

    Avanti is the only daughter of the leader of an unnamed Indian state. She is also the student of Chanakya, the military genius responsible for the Mauryan empire and the writer of the Arthashaastra. He was once exiled from his homeland, and returned with a young boy in tow as his protégé, the boy who history remembers as Chandragupta Maurya. Greek scholars sang his praises, and even Alexander the Great acknowledged his military prowess. Long dead, Chanakya is reborn into the current world and poses an eternal question before Avanti. What shapes human lives, the power of love or the love of power? Avanti needs to choose soon, and she knows that it must be a question of the utmost importance for the man who poses it is a genius known for his military and political machinations. Under his tutelage, Avanti can follow in the footsteps of Chandragupta Maurya and become yet another successful student of the genius master. She has everything to lose, and everything to gain in this exciting thriller that will glue readers to their seats.
