Paperback / Hardback

Mortal danger follows the Pandavas and Panchali into exile.
Back in Hastinapur, the bloody-minded Kauravas continue to scheme for total domination.
Both Arjuna and Duryodhana approach Krishna for help.
Is war between the cousins inevitable? Or will the elders manage to avert it?
The Book of Discoveries is the eagerly awaited second instalment of the Mahabharata trilogy, which began explosively with The Book of Vows. Imagined afresh and composed in a style that captures the power, charm and ambiguity of Vyasa’s Mahabharata, this book dramatizes the stunning prelude to war—one that is full of thrilling adventures, fateful encounters and life-altering revelations.
Grounding his telling in the original Sanskrit version, Majmudar has recreated the ancient epic for a contemporary audience. His finest work yet, this is one of the most accessible, magical and unputdownable retellings of the Mahabharata. The Book of Discoveries will be followed by The Book of Killings.
