I am prithvimahadevi, the goddess of the Earth.

The daughter of the powerful somavashi king of ko SA LA, prithvimahadevi' s life is circumscribed by the rules that govern the existence of women of her royal family. She can only hope that she will marry a king whose power matches that of her ambitious father.

but instead she is married to her father's enemy, the bhaumakara ruler, shubhakaradeva, whose way of life she finds alien and austere, and who worships strange gods. There seems to be no hope for her to fulfil her dreams of being a great queen-until suddenly one day, there is... But is she willing to play the game of sacrifice and betrayal that this will entail?

The story of this ninth-century queen of Odisha by award-winning historical novelist de VI ka Rangachari will keep you riveted.
