    Flipkart Official Review

    Aroon Raman is back with a good dose of historical element and thriller, as read in his previous book, The Shadow Throne. This time he brings to life the Mughal Emperor Akbar and throws him into an adventure. Rebellion is brewing in his army. There are rebellions being led by Asaf Baig.

    There is then the treasure of Malik Kafur, whose whereabouts are only known to an old woman. She is kidnapped by Baig and her grandson Dattatreya, seeks the help of the Emperor himself to stop Baig in his evil endeavours. This is the crux of the plot.
    As usual, the plot is racy and you can finish the book in less than two hours, if read in a single sitting. The characters are well-drawn, though there were times I felt that the Mughal Emperor was not a part of the story as much, as I would have liked him to be. Nonetheless, The Treasure of Kafur is a great read which pulls you in and does not let go, till you are done with the book.

    Description

    The fate of an empire trembles in the balance ...' Hindustan, 1580 AD. The Mughal Emperor Akbar is at the height of his power, seemingly invincible. But twenty years of war have earned him many enemies, and rebellion is brewing, led by Asaf Baig, the tyrannical ruler of Khandesh. Baig has stumbled upon the knowledge that the whereabouts of the fabulous lost treasure of Malik Kafur, which will guarantee victory to Akbar's enemies, is known to an old woman called Ambu.Baig kidnaps Ambu to wrest the knowledge of the treasure from her, but her twenty-year-old grandson, Dattatreya, escapes and flees across Hindustan to enlist the help of the the one person who has the most reason to stop Baig - the Mughal Emperor himself. Staying one step ahead of capture and death, Datta is swept up in a world of kings and warrior princesses, of uncommon friendships and an implacable evil; and a desperate race against time to save his grandmother - and the Empire

    Aroon has hit the sweet spot!

    Nice book by an Indian author ‘Mr. Aroonraman’. The Treasure Kafur was the best historical fiction I’ve read and the characters are so well defined. The author tells the story through in a way keeps one focused and the story line is amazingly composed together. The book is very alive and happening all throughout out. I think Aroon Raman has hit the sweet spot.

    Awesome!!! Aroon has a must read! Looking for more books

    Awestruck!! His style is no match to a debut author. With just his second book, what a transformation he’s brought. Mr. Raman, if you are reading this, you have a fan looking out for more books from you. I wonder to what extent has he gone to pull out facts deep in history. Must read and a must must read for all adventure lovers. Never miss for those who want a good book to read.

    An Alluring Tale

    Through his 'The Treasure of Kafur,' Aroon Raman took me on a hypnotic outing to the Mughal times where history blends with fantasy and a layer of mysticism. The novel is replete with surprising twists in the tale and surprising twists in language ---and both enthralled me in equal measure from start to finish. The geographic, cultural and historic details delighted me without causing the slightest impatience, for the pace of narration is unrelenting. All in all, a brilliant book from a maste...

    One of the most enjoyable aspect’s about history is always being able to find new stories.

    One of the most enjoyable aspect’s about history is always being able to find new stories. Attracting somebody with a great kingdom is a painstaking work to research and all the more difficult to attract someone to read. I enjoyed “The Treasure of Kafur” so much. Aroon Raman has provided us a reviling saga of action and adventure set in the Mughal India. An interesting and subjective approach to expand the history behind the establishment of Mughal Empire India. The author has successfully t...

    Awesome climax

    I have always feared reading thick novels because I tend to forget the name of characters and plot if I dont finish it in one sitting. But for this book, I specially made notes while reading and seriously speaking, this is one of the books which should get acclamation. The way it has been written. The characters that the author has created. The way Mughal empire is discussed. How the fight between good and evil is projected is all about making a reader get into the world of 15th and 16th cent...

    A great book in the new flourishing genre

    After reading the works of Amish Tripathi, Ashwin Sanghi and other authors writing in a genre which takes us back to religion, philosophy and history, I started searching for books with the same essence and feel. Someone informed me about The Treasure of Kafur and I ordered it on Flipkart without thinking twice. After completing the book, I am myself feeling as if I was struggling to free Ambu from the clutches of the villain. I felt sentimentally close to Datta's character. A magnificent boo...

    I must be crazy to have missed this masterpiece!

    I had a great day with this adventure thriller. I just started to read the story to ease stress. It gives me immense pleasure to get out of my stress while reading a good book.

The treasure will guarantee the victory to Emperor Akbar’s enemy Asaf Baig. Ambu and Datta were kidnapped by Asaf Baig. ‘Datta’ h...

    An epic adventure set in the Mughal era

    I won’t say this is a historical fictional book. It is a racy historical adventure with a suspense making it an absolute page turner. I don’t think there was too much of fiction in it. I did feel that the Author has researched a lot about history, which is not any easy task. It has a new dimensional portrayal of historical fiction. Coming to the book, Ambu is an old lady, living with her grandson Dattarya. Both are kidnapped by Akbar’s enemy. The story is about why they are kidnaped? How the ...
