In case you haven't yet read book one, The Tiger at Midnight: Esha is the Viper, a highly skilled assassin for the rebel group, tasked with taking down General Hotha. Kunal is Hotha's nephew, a soldier since childhood, tasked with upholding the power of the King. When their paths cross, both believe they're the one calling the shots, even as their feelings towards each other shift.
What it's about: Kunal and Esha, now working together as rebel spies, must infiltrate King Vardaan's court during the Sun Mela — a call for peace, a call for celebration, and a deadly competition. Kunal returns as a soldier during the peace summit for the divided nations of Jansa and Dharka, Esha as an adviser to Prince Harun. And all the while, a radical plan is underway to rescue Princess Reha of Jansa, the key to a stolen throne. The Tiger at Midnight, drawing influence from ancient Indian history and Hindu mythology, was one of the best debuts of 2019, and we are eagerly awaiting the second part of this trilogy.
