Great mix of history and fiction

This book will keep you engaged and the characters will come alive. Author has a great talent of combining history and fiction perfectly. His imagination is beyond imagination. The thing I like about his book is reader does not need to know the complete history of ancient India to understand it. Author has put his imagination into historical facts to create an interesting storyline. This is not a re-telling of a history, but he has twisted characters to suit his plot.

Powerful writing backed up with intense reaserch

Powerful writing backed up with intense reaserch. His attempt to rewrite Bharat's history is commendable. Loved the way Roopesh has filled the gaps available through inspired fiction without disturbing the authentically sourced facts. Warriors like Purshottam (porus) need prominent place in history and this book does the work for him. I am not a person who loves reading historical fiction but once i picked up this book i couldn't just put it down..The story, the plot, printing font everything is choosen wisely to ease out the long read.. We need more such books to bring back our glorious history to surface and to the world, to read it and cherish it the way it always deserved to be. A line that's gonna remain with me forever is " the real betrayal is forgetting who you are"

Product Details

4 TH Century BCE. India is a volatile place. Macedon king Alexander has arrived, and his thirst for glory is unquenchable. A certain Chandragupta Maurya has decided to overthrow the kingdom of debauched Nanda and is now a force to be reckoned with. Amidst all this commotion, there exists the warrior King Porus, who has taken up the daunting task of measuring swords with the overlord of more than half the world, Alexander. These sequences of events lead to a mouthwatering saga, full of unimaginable twists and turns.

This book is an attempt to highlight that era of ancient India, focusing on Porus, his power struggle, and his role in Indian history. This book also presents Alexander in a new light, which should interest the readers.

Porus: In the Shadow of Betrayals is the first of a three-part series, covering the early phases in the lives of Porus, Alexander and Chandragupta. Read through to know the twists, turns and the intrigue that will prepare the reader for the second part.
