  1. After reading 3 times almost straight, I am going to be writing a proper review I still give it five stars but I have some new thoughts about it.This is a really great book, but I think it will have very limited audience because there are many things in this book and not every one will like all of them.Firstly, although this is being classified in as being gay romance, it is history historical fiction that includes a gay romance If you are being interested in India political military history of [...]


  2. This couldn t be a perfect book and it s a miracle that it came from a first time author What talent History interwoven with the personal story of Jalendu and perfectly balanced Subtle sexuality developing as he grew older leading to an epic romance Such wisdom, intrigue, action, and passion in this book A fine example of historical fiction regardless of it s gay characters.Highly recommended
