    After reading 3 times almost straight I am going to be writing a proper review I still give it five stars but I have some new thoughts about itThis is a really great book but I think it will have very limited audience because there are many things in this book and not every one will like all of themFirstly although this is being classified in as being gay romance it is historyhistorical fiction that includes a gay romance If you are being interested in India politicalmilitary history of the Mughal times you would be loving this bookBut it is also a gay romance So you need to be an India history geek being interested in gay romance Hands up all of those? I guess not many except for me I think people reading this book for the gay romance will be getting a bit bored by the historical story If they are reading it for gay erotic scenes this book has some of the hottest and most explicit and realistic that I have read but there are not many If you want the sex only just read chapters Tari Khan and MorabaghThirdly the book has a spiritual philosophical side It is something like Life of Pi message but also something about what is real I am guessing the handfull of gay India history geeks out there are 99% atheists I am too and I think the philosophy of this book is also atheistic but it will be possible to be being disagreed with by both atheists and religious peopleSo if you make it through all of these filters if you are a gay India history geek and who is an atheist who loves religion I think you will go crazy about this book like meAlso I hope this doesn't hurt anyone's feelings and I never intend to be writting any bad review but the cover is not good enough for this book

    This couldn't be a perfect book and it's a miracle that it came from a first time author What talent History interwoven with the personal story of Jalendu and perfectly balanced Subtle sexuality developing as he grew older leading to an epic romance Such wisdom intrigue action and passion in this book A fine example of historical fiction regardless of it's gay charactersHighly recommended
