Description

This book is a historical novel and therefore required me to do research to understand the period and the historical figures of that time. Yet I maintain that is more fiction than historical treatise.

This well-researched work of fiction is based on the life of Ashoka Maurya, arguable the greatest monarch to rule India. This epic tale begins as prime Ashoka, Viceroy of Takshashila, fights his half-brother, Sushim to claim the throne.

He then conquers Kalinga, the last remaining independent kingdom in Jambudvipa (India). Appalled by the bloodshed of the Kalinga war, the emperor turns pacifist. He marries the widow of Kalinga’s former king and embraces Buddhism.
