Arjuna’s Daughter by Birgit Brecknell

 

Amba begged the demi-god Krishna to train her as a warrior. His price: to make her a pawn in his grand scheme.

Aryavarta, Northern India, 864 BC

Krishna rested in a clearing, giving Amba a clear shot. She raised her bow longing for the satisfaction of a kill. A doe distracted her as it bounded between mangroves to join its herd in a knee-deep pool. Amba scowled; Arjuna would not have lost focus. She hadn’t thought about her father for years. Now, as her arrow targeted his best friend the memories of him flooded back. Krishna headed to a denser mangrove and Amba had to take the shot. Krishna turned to her. His strange blue eyes were as alert as they’d ever been. Amba faltered again as she remembered what brought her there.

Editor’s First Look – Historical Adventure

By Palladian, editor, author of Super

Feb 25, 2018: Arjuna’s Daughter is an interesting surprise of a story. I was transported back to an India of the past, and found myself tracing a story of revenge through several generations of people, as they died and reincarnated, or magically lived forever, or became transformed into gods.

The story seems to jump around from chapter to chapter, but the author manages to thread it together as you trace what happens from one generation to the next, as new people are born, and others die and are reincarnated. I liked how I felt I got a flavor for how people lived during these times, as well as their thinking about how people moved through difference existences.

I’d recommend this tale for anyone who likes historical fiction, who has an interest in reading more about an India of the past, or likes the idea of following people’s stories through multiple lifetimes.
