The story begins with the birth of Surya, in none other than a jail, as his mother is incarcerated there. Surya is born with a unique birthmark on his chest. Though his mother rejects him and his father is unknown, he is taken in by a family who then decide to adopt him.
Surya is blessed with unique abilities concerning water, he is able to stay underwater for a long time without breathing along with other abilities! As his adopted father is a commander in the Chola navy, Surya’s talents are noticed at a very early age and nurtured.
After helping the Crown Prince on an important mission, Surya is sent to the Chola Royal Army School where his talents are honed to the utmost.
Surya goes on to play a vital role in helping Emperor Rajendra Chola to recover the royal crown and jewels. This quest for the jewels takes him to the kingdom of Srivijaya, where he falls in love with and marries a princess.
But fate still decrees that Surya serve his Emperor and he goes back to his home to protect the Emperor against his enemies. Does Surya ever meet his biological parents? Does he succeed in serving the Emperor and doing his duty? The reader will have to read the book to find out.
I highly recommend “The Conquest of the East”, as an extremely interesting story that will appeal to readers who love old historical/mythological stories.
Another historical fiction of the month and i love to read historical fictions.
We all are aware about Cholas , because we heard about chola dynasty in our school days for sure. We should read such genres to know more about the history of the nation and about the strategies , diplomatic relations and powers during wars and ruling period by the kings and ancient rulers.
Starting from the cover , it is ver beautiful, eye catchy and interesting and the title is very creative. If we talk about the blurb , it is enough to attract the readers from historical fiction genres.
This is story is about the chloa dynasty and this book is part of a series , i haven't read previous parts instead of i completely enjoyed the story. Story opens with thrill and adventures and runs till the end with lots of interesting facts apart from the historical background or historical facts.
Language is very simple and easy with a lot of interesting and motivation quotes and phrases which makes this my favourite read of the month.
Fast pace with thrills , adventures and
an amazing climax of every chapter , which is unique a concept.
I personally enjoyed the book and i read this book while traveling and my journey was very nice and comfortable. Must read , highly recommend to all the drama or historical fiction readers.
This book has written about the power and administration of Chola emperors. Their prides and success has been precisely elaborated here.
Surya , his intelligence , power and contribution for the emperor has made his character more graceful and respectable.
Everything has been written up with a very simple language and proper details.
In every chapter a new twist has been put forward which keeps the curiosity till the end of the book.
Title: Intriguing and an extremely fitting representation to storyline. I absolutely loved how the title played into the storyline.
Writing/Prose: Well-written, catchy, suspenseful, and smooth. Absolutely Drdurgadoss’s writing-style!
Plot: Engrossing, suspenseful, interesting, fast-paced, and entertaining.
Ending: Surprising, gripping, and intensely satisfying.
Overall: A fantastic, highly entertaining, enjoyable and immersive read! Would highly recommend
