The Palace of Illusions, like so many other books, had been on my list for a long time. For some reason, this book intimidated me. Maybe because it was based on the Mahabharata, an epic that I wasn’t too familiar with as against the Ramayana. So it was with the hope that I’d come to love it that I picked it up and started reading it. Never mind that it was for a challenge that I did this. Or it would have taken a further long while for me to pick it up.
