The dark age of Kali is rising, and every man and woman must choose between duty and conscience, honour and shame, life and death.... The Pandavas, banished to the forest following the disastrous games of dice, return to Hastinapura. Draupadi has vowed not to bind her hair till she washes it in the blood of the Kauravas. Karna must choose between loyalty and gratitude, friend and Guru. Aswathama undertakes a perilous mission to the mountains of Gandhara, in search of the Evil One. Kunti must decide between her firstborn and her other sons.

This book will Shake your beliefs to the core and reinstall new belief system in you which is better version of your previous self. this book is more than Mahabharata. This book is about life and the Black/Grey/White Area of it. After completing this book - My heart was filled with contentment and at the same time it was feeling empty, My heart was coming out from my chest and at the same time it was more stable then ever in my chest. This book opens a completely new dimension to your beliefs, emotions and life. Heart is a organ of emotions it will change. I am kind of person who always supported both side in Mahabharata.. it has shaken my belief itself. you can image the impact you will have when you were supporting only pandvas. This book has shaken my belief system on Krishna, destroyed it and reinstalled it. You will go through a hard phase if you are a Krishna Bhakt. The new beilef that no one is perfect and everyone has their own flaws. Even god themselves commit mistakes in the heat of the moment but graceful accept the fruit of the karma, that's what make them great. I promise it has changed me for better and I can't type all that. it's a different feeling.

the book is the excellent depecit of Mahabharat. The author Anand Neelakantan is to the next level. The performance I give 100000000/10. It's a excellent performance - outstanding, marvellous and fantastic. It's the best audio performance till date I heard. Siddhanta Pinto must perform more books. I wish to see 100's of books under his performance in Audible. Thank you Audible for the amazing experience. Thanks a lot. You will definitely need a lot of self control to stop listening to it once you start this book. you just can't stop listening to it.

At the heart of India’s most powerful empire, a revolution is brewing. Bhishma, the noble patriarch of Hastinapura, is struggling to maintain the unity of his empire. On the throne sits Dhritarashtra, the blind King, and his foreign-born Queen - Gandhari. In the shadow of the throne stands Kunti, the Dowager-Queen, burning with ambition to see her firstborn become the ruler, acknowledged by all. And in the wings: Parashurama, the enigmatic Guru of the powerful Southern Confederate, bides his time to take over and impose his will from mountains to ocean.

The Performance by Siddhanta Pinto is excellent... Wonderful. One of the best Audible Performance. You will the story of you love Mahabharat. The story is told for Kauravas view & is based on facts. It's great to see how Anand Sir writing has changed the my view completely on Mahabharat. Stories are how they are told.

I always felt from my childhood Suryodhana was a right man because of the way he give importance to merit instead of caste.

You won't be liking the role of Krishna in the first book... don't know about the second. It is a believable story unlike the TV Mahabharat were there is magic & gods and so much illogical things. I Feel Jara character was a way too much.

No matter How Mahabharat is told... Karna is always the Hero :).
