India, seventh century CE. Peace reigns in the kingdom of Magadha, under the reign of Emperor Samudragupta. New alliances are made every day, trade and the arts flourish, and Chandra – the emperor’s second son – leads his father’s horse across the length of Bharatvarsha, cementing the king’s influence by performing the Ashwamedha yagna. But there is trouble brewing in Chandra’s mind. Duty-bound as he is to follow the wishes of Samudragupta’s successor, Ramagupta, his elder brother, who is well-trained in the shastras and has the unmitigated support of the Pataliputra court, Chandra wrestles constantly with his brother’s decisions – decisions that he believes are inimical to the stability of the empire. As Chandra struggles to obey, he must find answers that will decide the future of his kingdom – especially as an enemy unlike any the Guptas have ever known begins to challenge their might. This is the story of a youth who must fight the gravest battles both within and without if he is to become one of the greatest emperors ever known. This is the story of Vikramaditya.
