The Palace of Illusions : A Novel | By Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni | Pan Macmillan India ( English Medium ),

Taking us back to a time that is half history, half myth and wholly magical, bestselling author Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni gives voice to Panchaali, the fire-born heroine of the Mahabharata, as she weaves a vibrant retelling of an ancient epic saga.

Married to five royal husbands who have been cheated out of their father’s kingdom, Panchaali aids their quest to reclaim their birthright, remaining at their side through years of exile and a terrible civil war. But she cannot deny her complicated friendship with the enigmatic Krishna—or her secret attraction to the mysterious man who is her husbands’ most dangerous enemy—as she is caught up in the ever-manipulating hands of fate.

Review

“A radiant entree into an ancient mythology virtually unknown to the Western world. . . . Remarkable.” —Houston Chronicle

 “A mythic tale brimming with warriors, magic and treachery. . . . Divakaruni’s sentences dazzle; the images she creates are masterful.” —Los Angeles Times
 “Complex, beautifully wrought. . . . Divakaruni’s feminist reading of Indian lore offers readers a magical lens into the political interplay of gender, castes, birthright and life in the monarchy. . . . A writer to watch.” —Rocky Mountain News

 “Divakaruni’s prose is as spirited as Panchaali herself, written with energy and humor.” —Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel

“Epics are intended to be accessible to the most extensive of audiences. And with The Palace of Illusions Divakaruni likewise makes this reimagining of the “Mahabharat” easy to understand through the simple,straightforward narrative. Moreover, Divakaruni masterfully describes the lyrical beauty of Indians and the elegant logic of Hinduism.” —San Antonio News Express

 “The Palace of Illusions is not only an exciting, action-packed read, but also an educating one, and will likely encourage those curious enough to delve into the original Mahabharata.” —Erin Kobayashi, Toronto Star

 “Enchanting…. Anita Diamant’s The Red Tent, Philippa Gregory’s The Other Boleyn Girl—now we can add Divakaruni’s The Palace of Illusions to the list.” —The Miami Herald

 “The Palace of Illusions is unique, amongst Divakaruni’s very best. It is particularly refreshing to read an author who breaks the mold as clearly as Divakaruni does…. A creative, illuminating feminist work that compels us to re-examine the original text…. As in all great cathartic tales, Divakaruni’s novel grasps our attention from beginning to end and is a healing, aesthetic experience.” —India Currents
 “Divakaruni has taken a male-centered story and breathed new life into its female characters, giving us a rich tale of passion and love, power and weakness, honor and humiliation. Whether or not readers are familiar with the “Mahabharat” epic, still fascinating and relevant several millennia on, they will enjoy this entertaining, insightful, and suspenseful story.” —The Union, Nevada City

 “Known for writing on the modern Indian immigrant experience in novels such as “Queen of Dreams,” Divakaruni goes back in time, this time with a novel look at the ancient Indian epic “The Mahabharat” (think: an Indian “Iliad”). With hundreds of characters in the story of a great war, she tells the story from the point of view of a woman – Panchaali – who is married to five brothers” —New York Post
 “Divakaruni has woven a lyrical tale imbued with the scent of ancient incense, yet simultaneously rooted in modern-day relevancy. Brimming with betrayals, religious fervor and war-torn streets, The Palace of Illusions is a journey experienced from the vantage point of Panchaali, a powerful woman dfiven by love, honor and, in the end, a fate that unfolds despite her resolve.” —Karen Ann Cullotta, Bookpage

 “Your truly epic narrative myth calls for bitter experience descending, avalanch-like, down dynasties, incorporating dramatic turning points of ineradicable impact; curses; looming fates; tricky and meddlesome gods; feuds; sages, sorcerers and wars.
