What is the book about?
- The Rise of Hastinapur is Book 2 of the ‘Hastinapur’ series. The name of Book 1, which came out in 2013, is The Winds of Hastinapur.
- This series attempts an alternative narration of the Mahabharata from the points of view of an ensemble all-female cast.
- This means that you will read stories of women that you’ve only just heard about in passing so far: Ganga, Satyavati, Amba, Kunti, Gandhari and the like will take center stage and tell the tale the way they saw it.
- Since these points of view are not available in the original text, this series will necessarily be an expansion of the Mahabharata story, not just another point-of-view retelling of it.
Who should read it?
If you’re a) a lover of Indian mythology, and b) a lover of well-written fantasy fiction, then you should give this a go. This is the Mahabharata like you’ve never seen it before. After reading this, you will see the song of the Great War in an entirely new light.
