Publisher Comments:

In an ancient age, when the pyramids were being built in Egypt, and Mesopotamia was rising under the rule of the Akkadians, the Indus Valley Civilisation grew in the plains of western India...

Four times the size of its more famous contemporaries, the Indus Valley Civilisation grew around a network of five great cities where peace and prosperity reigned. Prince Meluha, the young crown prince of Dholavira, enjoyed a life of pleasure until Sargon, the ambitious ruler of the Mesopotamian city of Akkad, turned his eye towards the east and sent his army to take these lands.

Will Prince Meluha be able to save his kingdom? Or will the powerful Akkadians and their fearsome weapons of mass destruction destroy all before help is at hand?

Read on to join Prince Meluha in his adventure to reclaim the sovereignty of his lands in what is truly a brilliant and insightful recreation of the times of the Indus Valley Civilization.
