Palace of Assassins

Being an ardent fan of mythology, I can assure you I have read quite a number of them. Making me more intrigued to start on this book. Palace of Assassins is the story of Ashwatamma. For those who don’t know this name, he is the son of Guru Dronacharya; the guru for both Paandavas and Kauravas.

Kurushektra war as many knows is a dreadful 13 day war that came victorious for the Pandavas and vanishing most of the Kaurava clan. Ashwatamma was one of those people who fought along-side with Drhuyodhana and this is his story after the great war.

Aditya Iyengar starts with Ashwatamma waking up in a desert full of boils all over his body; he is cursed by the great Vishnu. What, how and why I shall let you read the book to know. He quickly learns he is cursed to an eternal life of misery and soon finds out there is a cure to his condition and seeks out on a journey.

I liked how Aditya Iyengar did not portray Ashwatamma as a villain nor a hero, but merely as a man seeking to find his true self and trying to live a life after losing everything known to him. He plotted a very strong end to this book, knitting all the open ends and giving a revelations. Which is satisfying.

Palace of Assasins; is all fair in love and war?
