ASHOKA – Lion of Maurya (Ashoka, #1) by Ashok K. Banker

My Review-

Growing up hearing about Emperor’s of India it did not took me a second to add this book to ‘want to read’ list and cover is very much attractive and mesmerized.

This is not a history book but its a historical fiction. I loved that it is based on true historians, and did not bored me with all the date and details and facts. I found myself in magnetic chain of reading, now I am in hangover of the mauryavansh world created by the author. Ashok k. banker is indeed a great story teller. He created a world where all women and men are more than gender. loved how he described chandikas, female military who can beat men face to face and can do more than that., Political minds and strategies. Ashok left me with many questions and incomplete thoughts.

One thing to Ashok K. Banker, “when will the second book of this series will be out?”
