Mythological Fiction Books To Be Read

This name doesn't sound unfamiliar. If you have watched all the Epic Serial "Mahabharat".Ashwatthama the son of the Dronacharya (the Teacher to both Pandava and Kaurava).This book is all About Ashwatthama and his journey in Mahabharat. Not heard a big story about this person anywhere and was extremely thrilled and emotional to read this story. A must read Indian Mythology Story, the Kurukshetra War.

Story Outline: Over a hundred years after the Mahabharata War, an ancient power threatens to destroy the new Age of Men, by establishing the Age of Terror of the asuras, long believed to be extinct. the only hurdle in its path is Guru Dronacharya’s son, the mighty but accursed warrior Ashwatthama, who lost all his powers following Lord Krishna’s curse and who unwittingly finds himself drawn into the quest of the lost bow of Lord Rama, the Kodanda. As ghosts of the distant past return to haunt him and the line between friends and enemies blurs, Ashwatthama must fight his inner demons to emerge victoriously. He undertakes a perilous journey—across the vast plains of the Ganges, to the snow-capped peaks of the Himavant where the price of failure is a fate worse than death and death is a privilege not granted to Ashwatthama. Is this all part of Lord Krishna’s great plan? Will Ashwatthama be able to regain his lost glory? The overall rating will be 4/5 


2. Kalki

Mythological Fiction Books To Be Read

Another Mythological Fiction Book that I liked " The Kalki". I picked the book simply because it was an Indian Mythological Fiction Book and because of its Cover. Thus impressed with the book cover I got into my reading Part. At the Start, I was not really impressed or I was actually wondering why I am not able to get involved in the story. But then I managed and Yes the Later Part of the Book did do justice and I was really happy. I enjoyed the narration part of it and I was even happier that the author didn't retell the story of Kalki avatar of Lord Vishnu. The author(Kevin Missal) has managed to add the stories of Mahabharat and Ramayana in a little quality and that was appreciable. For people who love maps - you got that here and that actually was a good attempt by the author.

He learns that he has been born to cleanse the world he lives in, for which he must journey to the North and learn the ways of Lord Vishnu’s Avatar; from an immortal who wields an ax. But trapped in the midst of betrayals, political intrigue, and forces that seek to decimate him, will he be able to follow his destiny before the Kaliyug begins? The overall rating will be 3.5/5.

While Jaya is the story Of the Pandavas, told from the perspective of the victors of Kurukshetra, Ajaya is the tale of the Kauravas, who were decimated to the last man.

But even as gods conspire and men’s destinies unfold, a far greater truth awaits. The dark age of Kali is rising and every man and woman must choose between duty And conscience, honor and shame, life and death.Overall rating for the Book: 5/5


4.The Fisher Queen's Dynasty

Mythological Fiction Books To Be Read

With a very little information about this lady in Epic tale Mahabharat, it was a great read for me. The Fisher Queen Dynasty(Satyavati) is yet another beautiful mythological fiction book that inspired me to read more books on this genre. The second wife of King Shantanu and the rajamata of Dynasty - the narration was just awesome. You will encounter a new journey to the story we have ahead. This Mahabharat is written from the viewpoint of Satyavati. Though you might hate her, at a certain point she gets the pettiness from all. You might fall in love with Bhism more. I would love to recommend this book for people who wish to read Mahabharat from Satyavati's point of view.

Story Outline: I learned to love like a man—to love without feelings. And I shall never forget this lesson.’Matsyagandha, Daseyi, Yojanagandha — the queen of Hastinapur, Satyavati. Abandoned as a baby, preyed on by a Rishi, she hardens herself, determined that the next time she is with a man, she will be the one to win. And win she does: the throne of Hastinapur for herself and the promise that her sons will be heirs to the kingdom. But at what cost? In a palace where she is disdained and scorned, Satyavati must set aside her own loss and pain if she is to play the game of politics. She learns to be ruthless, unscrupulous — traits that estrange her from everyone around. Everyone, except the man she cheated of his birthright.
A piercing, insightful look at the grand matriarch of the Kuru family, the woman who set off the sequence of events that ended in the bloody battle of Kurukshetra, The Fisher Queen’s Dynasty will re-align your reading of the Mahabharat.Overall Rating: 3.5/5


5.Shyam: An Illustrated Retelling of Bhagavata by Devdutt Pattanaik

Mythological Fiction Books To Be Read

Story Outline: If you haven't read any Bhagavata Book - You should try this.
In the forest of insecurities, is it possible to discover humanity through pleasure? Can we stop seeing each other as predator, prey, rival or mate, and rediscover ourselves as lovers? Does the divine reside in sensual delight, in emotional intimacy, and an aesthetic experience?

The Bhagavata is the story of Krishna, known as Shyam to those who find beauty, wisdom, and love in his dark complexion. It is the third great Hindu epic after the Mahabharata and the Ramayana. However, this narration was composed in fragments over thousands of years, first as the Harivamsa, then as the Bhagavata Purana, and finally as the passionate songs of poet-sages in various regional languages. This book seamlessly weaves the story from Krishna's birth to his death, or rather from his descent to the butter-smeared world of happy women to his ascent from the blood-soaked world of angry men. Overall Rating: 4/5 


6.Sita: Warrior of Mithila (Ram Chandra) - Just loved it!

Mythological Fiction Books To Be Read

The Book which I loved so much. The author "Amish Tripathi" made people fall in love with his narration style and to the "Indian Mythology".A trending author in this genre. Talking about "Sita as a warrior" - the author has done his justice to the character and to the story. The book tells the story of Sita from her birth to her wedding with Ram and her abduction by Ravan. Amish has his own magical way of expressing the Epic tale unlike we have heard or seen in television. A different perspective of the story and that's what make's everyone to read his series.
Just go ahead and read the Book.
