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.
