Azaad is a land of myths and legends, a golden crown for many conquerors to raise high.
But their reign never lasts.
Each time the crown slips, disasters strike. Loyalties shift, lands stagnate and wars loom. Twenty years on, the situation hasn't improved.
With a rebel alliance reduced to tatters and his own grandfather captured, can Bhagat use the knowledge he gains to protect his people and see them rise, or watch as a stagnant land succumbs to new wounds and unforseen tragedies?
For even one bad move can cost him everything.
AN: I'd appreciate it if everyone can leave their criticisms so that I can improve on my writing. Ratings and comments also go a long way! And yah, it's nation-building.
Warnings: I mention them, but there are a few chapters that are really gruesome. Furthermore, this first book is very slow. It's meant as an introduction of sorts and, admittedly, it does get a bit dull at some parts. I hope to improve on it at a later date when I can rework it, but for now it'll have to do. The second book planned will be a lot more fun. Though, I think that's just me.
Inspirations: South Asian history, Tales of a Reincarnated Lord and some of the kingdom-building stories on RR are inspirations for this work.
Schedule: New chapter Saturday at 3PM PST.
