Emperor Dharma Yudhisthir of the Kauravas and Empress Panchali Draupadi rule over the empire built for them by Govinda Shauri with the blessings of the Firstborn and by the might of those whom everyone believes long gone - the Firewrights.Now, the Firewrights are ready to rise from the ashes of the past and as Dharma Yudhisthir gambles away his empire, the empress is forced into a terrifying exile and the nations of Aryavarta take up arms in a bid to fight, conquer and destroy each other.
The only way Govinda can protect Aryavarta is by playing a dangerous game. But can he bring himself to reveal the terrible secrets that the Vyasa has protected all his life - secrets that may well destroy the Firstborn and the Firewrights with them?
