“I was there when nothing was, I am here when nothing is, and I will be present in all years to come.”

There’s an eerie deafening silence in the royal palace of Rudraputra, scorned by multiple layers of armed guards. Someone knows something, something that no one is supposed to find out. Going back in the gallows of time, what if Eklavya was not the chosen one at Gurukul? Is there an alternative to the past?

“Am I ready? I don’t want to lose! Victory is the only option! I will snatch it if I must. Either I’ll win, or I’ll do what no one would have imagined in their wildest dreams. Yes, I’ll change the rules about how this game can be played. But is that enough? Physical superiority is not all I long, I want to rule people’s mind, I need to know before it comes to me…”

Is it revenge he is looking for? Vengeance is a parasite. It lurks onto you, and it grows, feeds on your body, your soul, and ultimately it becomes you!

Long Live the Sullied marks a deeper dive into the epic story, debunking mysteries of God of the Sullied that left you astonished.

* I received the book by the author in exchange of an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are unbiased. *

Long Live the Sullied is the second and the final book of the warrior duology where the first book is Good Of the Sullied. The duology as the synopsis hints, is actually a mythological tale narrated by time about the great warrior, Eklavaya. The first book ends with Eklavya being crowned as the king. However, the second book deals with much deeper and enthralling mysteries.

The plot was quite gripping in the beginning however, by the end it was quite predictable. The pacing was moderate. It was not quite too fast or very slow either. Further, being a plot based on mythology, I think it was quite interesting and not dreadful as I thought it would be.

The characters were very appealing and interesting to read about. However, as the story took pace, the minor characters seemed to have no character development which was quite disappointing as I was hoping for some character development.

The writing style of the author was really gripping and easygoing. I was glad to read a book with simple and fun writing. The illustrations were just the cherry on the top!
