The Rise Of Hastinapur Pre-Order Offer: Get 6 Great Books For the Price of 1

The Rise Of Hastinapur FINAL
Welcome to the pre-order page of The Rise of Hastinapur. Here you will find all that you need to know about the book. Namely:

  • What is the book about?
  • Who should read it?
  • A downloadable sample
  • How you can make use of the 6-for-1 offer

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.

  1. Rajat Bhat says:

    Is there any other way of getting the 4 e-books other than pre-ordering, because I already have the 1st Hastinapur book and I already have by hands full with some other work, so I can’t pre-order now, and I tend to read e-books quite fast, generally.


    • Hi Rajat! The four eBooks will be released as individual eBooks as soon as this promotion ends, but they will each be priced at 100 rupees. You can then purchase them. If you wish to get them for free, there may not be as good a promotion as this coming along anytime soon. But you never know, right? 🙂


  2. Hello, I have ordered via amazon and have sent you d mail too. Pls do look into it. Waiting to read your books 🙂
