Book Review: The Peshwa: War Of The Deceivers By Ram SivaSankaran

Hi Friends,

Today's book is again for all those Epic\Indian History lovers!
'The Peshwa- War Of The Deceivers' by Indian author Ram Sivasankaran. This is the Second book in the Peshwa series.

Plot Summary: Seven years have passed since Peshwa Bajirao Bhat annihilated the Nizam's armies at Fort Mandu. Th two forces have been engaged in attacks and skirmishes ever since. Acting on the advice of his right hand man, the mysterious Anaamik Dabhade, the Peshwa now sets about laying a trap to truly ensnare the Mughals, and break their might.
The empire of course has methods of his own. And Nizam Ul Mulk is itching for an opportunity to exact revenge of the formidable Bajirao. With assassins, saboteurs and criminals infiltrating the Maratha lands, the Mughal Empire scores as many victories in the night as the Peshwa does during the day.
Meanwhile, in the far reaches of the country, set ablaze by the never ending conflict between these major powers, a Sikh warlord, a Rajput king and a Bundela princess find themselves increasingly tangled up in the endgame that will determine the very course of history. It is a battle of wits and skill, and the greatest deceiver of them all will prevail.

About The Author: Ram was born in Madras, India but has spent most of his life abroad, largely in the Middle East and US. He was brought up on stories from Hindu legend and the great epics and classics of both India and the West. He had his master's degree from Stanford University specializing in aeronautics, space environment, astronautics and plasma phenomena. Although, scientist by training, Ram is, at heart, a daydreamer of sorts, who believes deeply in the power of imagination.

My Review:
This is the second book in the Peshwa series by the author. Although, I have not read the first one but still I decided to read this one and totally enjoyed it. Peshwas Bajirao is quite a prominent name in our Indian history. Specially after the block buster movie, our Indian audience have became much more interested in him! No wonder Bajirao's life was full of twists and turns and thrill..
This book is a nice & fine piece of Indian History Fiction. It will surely make you feel transported to that time and era...I love the amount of detailing in the narration by the author. The story line is thrilling and engaging.

Even the starting scene of  Chimaji and Kashiraj on the boat impressed me and aroused my curiosity to read further..
The story is just not about Peshwa but includes many characters who played important role from time to time likes Kashibai , Mastani, Nizam etc

It did took me some days to finish it since some of the scenes and characters are quite detailed and elaborated. It has all the interesting elements in it like war, throne politics, Kings, Family, Lust for power... All the characters are well defined including their dressing, expressions etc

The author surely knows how to tell a story interestingly and make it a page turner!
Having said all the above, this book do require some patience to complete it and enjoy it to its fullest. Would like to highly recommend this book to all the History Fiction lovers!
I am surely looking forward to reading more from the author.
