This book generated a lot of eagerness in me because of its storyline. The story of a queen unheard of. It started with a race and finished with one too. But the parts in between seemed a little repeated. It could have been shortened a bit.
Coming to the story, it might be a book to bring to the light the life of Satyavati. The reason for her ambitions. She is often seen as a cruel and a shrewd queen. That is there and more. Though time and again she defends herself, she did the same to Bhism- deprive him of his birthright. What I liked about the book the most was it sought not to justify Satyavati's actions and reasons but just presented them as they were. Good job! :-)
