Review:
In a high stakes game, young King Tamar accedes to the command of an imposing stranger: "You will go to my place in Mahapura and there make good on your debt."

Combining the mythology of ancient India with the wisdom garnered over seventy years, this author has produced a spellbinding adventure. It explores the meanings of love, honor, caste, and war. Masterful.
