When a book is part of a series, there is an inadvertent comparison to the book that precedes it. There is a basic expectation that the book will be at least as good as if not better than that preceding book. I was absolutely impressed by the first book titled ‘The Winds of Hastinapur’ in this series authored by Sharath Komarraju. It was because that it wasn’t a retelling of the Mahabharata, but a part of it from the point of view of two women in the epic. That was the USP of the book, and this second book continues that as well.
