After the first part of the book Upon the Burning Throne, it was more or less obvious that it will take more than two books to finish the saga. Adri and Shvate are childless. The book is concentrating primarily on the journey of Karna, Mayla and Shvate as well as the triangle relationship of Adri with Geldry and the housemaid. The book delves deeply into the connections at the emotional level, that is often looked over in Mahabharata. The depth of the turbulence in the families before the birth of the sons has been an un-reaped area so far and hence the author has an important role to play.

The powerful demon lord Jarsun has declared war on the vast burnt empire.

The names of the characters are chosen thoughtfully. The second book in comparison with the first excels as a literary piece. Author has proved that it is indeed possible to write a high quality book without using incomprehensible vocabulary and twisted plots. Author has given a new definition to the characters Adri, Geldry and Karni. The character of the Jarsun, though a major lead in the plot, lacked ambiguity.

The three ambitious and courageous queens, Karni, may LA and geldry, devise tortuous ways of holding on to power as the men they are married to, the princes a Dr I and shvate, struggle to keep the burning throne which they inherited from their illustrious forefathers. But how and at what cost?

Author has a major advantage and disadvantage in taking Mahabharat as the reference for the book. The advantage is to have a exemplary base plot which has everything that is needed for a bestselling book. The disadvantage would be that the complexity of the plot makes it exhausting for the readers but author has carefully delved into the plot and extracted that which is interesting for the readers.
