Exodus - Book One of the Mahabharata Simplified Series (Paperback)
The Pandavas have come to Hastinapura, seeking family and love, but are instead greeted with animosity and hatred from the Kauravas, their cousins. Schemes and plots are hatched by a vile statesman, who happens to be uncle to the Kauravas, to either kill them or drive them away as part of his goal to destroy the ethics of the Kuru family. Meanwhile, in Mathura, the Yadavas face a constant threat from Jarasandha, the one who calls himself The Emperor, as part of his desire to have revenge since his son-in-law was killed by two mystical cowherds. As the Yadava dynasty seeks to escape the tyranny of Jarasandha, the three siblings, Krishna Govinda, Balarama Vaasudeva, and Subhadra must take it upon themselves to save the city from the tyrannical king. Will the cunning uncle succeed in breaking up the rising alliance between the Pandavas and the Yadavas? Will Jarasandha be able to sack the city of Mathura? Will their schemes and wars result in an exodus of Dharma from Aryavarta?
