The Last War, by Sambit Daspatnaik, is written majorly in
- The Last war
- The Holy Temple of Eula
The story talks about the progenies of the Pandavas and the Kauravas (Pauravas) faced a massive attack by the Gandharvas. The Pauravas are expecting some upcoming geographical and political challenges due to the onslaught of Pandavas. How will the Pauravas save the land of Bharata (Ancient India)?
This is one of the book’s highlights that hook the reader. We have been reading about straight Epics & retelling of Mahabharata. As a reader, we could not think about the epic’s extension, which is unique in its own way. “New lessons were learned; old secrets were unveiled, and new allies were made.”
The book’s narration is relatively uniform and crisp throughout the book, which does not bore the reader. The language is rich and error-free.
This book is available in two formats: Kindle and Paperback, which cost Rs. 119 & Rs. 260 respectively. This is an affordable deal for the amount of research and knowledge that has been reflected in the book.
Who would’ve thought the story of Mahabharata would be a reason to initiate another war. The plot of the book itself is entertaining. Also, the writer has added a splash of sci-fiction, which added an extra element of entertainment.

The amount of research and knowledge put into this book is commendable. We have not been reading books that deal with such intricacies and nuances of mythology. However, I felt the book's cover and title don't go well with the story, compared to how it's actually unveiled. Nonetheless, the stories are fresh and equally entertaining. Would the Pauravas be able to save the city of Moenjo and Hariapa? Would the Ancient Aliens (the sky Gods) really come to their rescue? Read on to know more in the story "The Last War".
