Before the dawn of man, there was Hanuman.
Ancient Kishkindha, the land of Hanuman and his people, is in mortal danger.
The era of peace marked by the parama dharma, a rigorous code that forbids the spilling of blood, seems about to end. A new and deadly race of beings that destroy and devour anything that lives is gathering outside Kishkindha’s northern frontiers and invasion is imminent.
Hanuman, meanwhile, has been exiled by the intrigues of his aunt, the empress Riksharaja, in order to make way for Vali.
Only his cousin Sugreeva and wise guru Vishwamitra can help Hanuman as his destiny takes him onward to face himself and a world no one in Kishkindha has known about until now.
‘The Kishkindha Chronicles’ re-imagines the ancient prehistory of India from a startlingly new perspective that will make us rethink what it means to be human and animal. Saraswati’s Intelligence is the first book in the trilogy.
