Author: Krishna Udayshankar.
The story charts the power fight between the Fire Wrights and Firstborn. The lineage of which is chronicled in the early pages of the book. The first book of the unnumbered chronicles focuses on Govinda the prince who became cowherd and relapsed into being prince. He is addressed as Govinda Shauri.
Draupadi being the pivotal character, the standard events are presented differently. The standard characters are also unrecognizable as their traditional names have been dropped. Karna barely makes his presence felt.
Does tease a contemplation to buy the next book in the series “The Fire Wrights.”
