About The Book

"He can battle any enemy-except his own familyAshoka has been despatched to accompany his brother Sushim to Taxila. But when he sees the brutality and disrespect to Mauryavansh by the Pashtun rebels, he cannot stay silent. His sword is as quick as his temper, and the result is swift and bloody justice. Taxila is saved-but the Emperor is furious.Emperor Bindusara, egged on by his favourite queen, Noor Khorasan, becomes convinced that Ashoka's show of initiative is an act of treason. Even the wise words of nonagenarian Kautilya, emerging from retirement, fall on deaf ears. Queen Khorasan's well-mounted plot to control the empire sweeps up everyone who opposes her. Suddenly, Ashoka is forced to choose between his mother's life and his own. What will the young prince do?India's epic storyteller brings alive the battles, brutality, lust and politics of ancient India in vivid detail with thrilling action, and no-holds-barred storytelling. Relive the extraordinary life story of India's greatest emperor as a young man in Ashoka: Satrap of Taxila."
