    It is no easy joke to write a story chapter by chapter, week on week for 3.5 years to have a book that keeps you transfixed When it is a historical fiction with real characters and fixed points recorded in history, it becomes a fascinating journey between 2 points This book is a masterpiece by any standard you choose The last part in the series is full of action at each and every thread of the story And how The action starts with ponniyin selvan who we left in book 3 and sets the context for It is no easy joke to write a story chapter by chapter, week on week for 3.5 years to have a book that keeps you transfixed When it is a historical fiction with real characters and fixed points recorded in history, it becomes a fascinating journey between 2 points This book is a masterpiece by any standard you choose The last part in the series is full of action at each and every thread of the story And how The action starts with ponniyin selvan who we left in book 3 and sets the context for the title Pinnacle of Sacrifice in English The book builds up gloom for over 300 pages before the storm clouds clear to allow sunlight Some of the twists and turns are sort of predictable but then the prosethan makes up for that.The book title somehow made you know all along what was to come and that whatever is the buildup is towards the one critical historical incident Hence it is a marvel the amount of yarn built around this event Parts of the book are extremely moving.The book has strong female characters surprisingly for a time when the society was dominated by men Manimegalai and Manthakini devi are immortalized doing a bit of injustice to the other heroines of previous parts like Poonkuzhali and Vanathi.The friendship between the characters that are at times extremely at logger heads was a bit hard to digest You would want the bad guy to be punished but then history says that guy lived on The epilogue was brilliant where the author answered what happened after the period in the book One very satisfying series read Overall Series Rating 5 5

    One of the best book I have ever read Its really unbelievable how the author has maintained the suspense and intrigue for over 2000 pages Hats off to Kalki. One of my friends told me that this book deserves a place in our Pooja shelf And after reading it I would say that its by no means an exaggeration..

    Wow Some jaw dropping stuff happens Although I was expecting something to happen, the way it played out caught me off guard So much drama and action has peaked to a thrilling, heart rending climax Can t believe there s still another volume yet to read.

    The past one month, it feels like I have lived in the chola period In the first book, it took me sometime to get into the story but from there it has been a fantastic ride At various points in the story, I have loved hated the same characters, laughed with them, walked through deep dark forests, travelled to Srilanka, plotted with them, felt pity for characters I wanted dead from start, loved characters that I thought were inconsequential to the story And what a story this is Individual book The past one month, it feels like I have lived in the chola period In the first book, it took me sometime to get into the story but from there it has been a fantastic ride At various points in the story, I have loved hated the same characters, laughed with them, walked through deep dark forests, travelled to Srilanka, plotted with them, felt pity for characters I wanted dead from start, loved characters that I thought were inconsequential to the story And what a story this is Individual books aptly named for the prime theme of that book, takes you through each part with almost everyone playing such a crucial role in holding the chola dynasty from falling apart My favorites are definitely poonguzhali for her attitude, PS and Kundavai for their truthfulness towards their friends, manimegalai for her part in the last book, sendhan amudhan for being an honest person until the last sentence he uttered in the book and ofcourse vandhiyathevan for his charm I did get annoyed at him for few reasons in the last book for which I am not willing to forgive him I highly recommend the spotify audiobook version by Sri for anyone who wants to listen rather than read
