Samudragupta, king of Rajagriha sent away both of his sons when they were very little and raise them separately without anyone knowing their whereabouts for their own safety. He was not safe in his own castle. When his Elder son Ramagupta comes of age he introduces him his younger brother Chandragupta to the public and both brothers started helping their father in running the kingdom. Ramagupta marries Agnieshka, daughter of Tilabhatta (Commander in chief of Rajagriha’s army) and Chandragupta is engaged to his other daughter but everything in the castle was not as normal as it seemed. There was an assassin imposing as a soldier in their army whose sole purpose was the death of Samudragupta and after several attempts on king’s life, he finally manages to land a fatal blow on king which leaves him very weak and unable to take care of his kingdom. He appoints Ramagupta as acting king and was waiting for his recovery when his younger son fell down from stairs and loses his mind and is sent to a mental asylum. Was Chandragupta really mad or was he also a victim of another conspiracy like his father? What happens to Samudragupta? How well did Ramagupta fulfill his duties as an acting king?
The narration was good and captivating. The writing style of the author is simple yet gripping which did not allow me to put the book down before finishing. The cover was okay but I did not like the color schemes and it could have been better. The plot was mind-blowing as the twists and turns and suspense was well maintained throughout the book.
Samudragupta has two sons. Ramagupta and Chandragupta. Chandragupta was kept away from the palace for 25 years and when he returned strange things started to happen.
Nice plot. Very interesting story. Nice suspense and well written. It grabs your attention till the end. I felt like watching suspense movie. Incredible tale of politics and Karma. Must read !! Can’t wait to read other books from the same author as well as publisher!! Indeed loved it !!
Being a history lover, I was really excited to read this book. I love reading historical fictions, as it delights me in an unusual way, from the point of view of the author. Read my full review to know about this book…..
Yoddha the dynasty of Samudragupta is set during the Gupta Empire and revolves primarily around the King of Magadh Samrat Samudragupta and his two sons Ramagupta and Chandragupta.
Samrat Samudragupta as he was lovingly called by his people, the most powerful man in the whole of Aryavrat, was winning all battles in battlefield, but battles of life worries him all times. The beloved king has kept big secrets, really big… and what will happen when they are brought in front of everyone? That you will know only after reading this book.
Samdragupta kept is sons away from him, to protect them from his enemies. Years after when they came back to their kingdom, ofcourse after lots of twists, Samudragupta finally felt happiness for his complete family, but with a fear always lingering in is heart of history to repeat itself and history did repeated itself and his happiness didn’t last forever.
While Samudragupta along with his sons was planning to destroy his enemies and protect their kingdom, enemies from past were at his palace to destroy him. His enemies continouslly tried to kill him but his fate saved him, but not for long.
When all this and lots more planning was happening in palace against Chandra, he was busy in his love story with Dhruvadevi, to be kanyadevi of the palace. His dearones were against him, to subside him from their path. Will he manage to escape from all this?
This book is full of suspense, and will keep you hooked, and you must read it to know how, what and when happened with whom.
Author wrote this story with all historical characters and many events with a twist of his own imagination, which came out really well. It has all factors of a historical fiction, War; Politics; Romance; Drama; Revenge; Secrets; Ambitions; Enemity; Plannings and Plotting, and all you can think about. What I liked most is Characterization, author gave a good detailing about every Character and did justice to all characters.
I really enjoyed this book but it failed to left a mark on me. I felt lack of strong impression at many places specially at those high points. And i found it’s ending really fast, it could have been more detailed like the rest of the book, and thus would be more satisfying .
Else it’s a good read and history lovers should definitely pick this book.
