Book Announcement - Suheldev - Battle of Bahraich by Amish Tripathi

Hey guys,

This is a post regarding new book by Amish Tripathi on a Dalit King Suheldev,who is said to have defeated and killed the Ghaznavid general Ghazi Saiyyad Salar Masud at Bahraich.

 Not much is known about King Suheldev to many people. May be that's the reason why he decided to write about him in his next book.

Amish is currently writing Ram Chandra series. Two of the books from series are already published. And the third book Raavan - Orphan of Aryavarta is expected to be released by the end of this year or the early months of 2019.

Besides this series,he is planning to write many other books. 20 or so. In the live session today with Sonali Bendre on facebook he discussed about his future writing plans.

This is the video of the live session.


The title of the book is Suheldev - Battle of Bahraich. It is going to release on 16th July,2018. About a month from now. He is collaborating with Vikas Singh , author of Bhima- The man in shadows and The big fix. According to Amish , the story is obviously as he has interpreted. The first draft will be made by Vikas Singh and then Amish will see that before finalizing it. There will be no difference in the writing style. This book is going to be first in #IndicChronicles

A Forgotten Hero. An Unforgettable Battle.
India, 1025 AD.
Repeated attacks by Mahmud of Ghazni and his barbaric Turkic hordes have weakened India’s northern regions. The invaders lay waste to vast swathes of India — plundering, killing, raping, pillaging. Many of the old Indian kingdoms, tired and divided, fall to them. Even those who battle on are shackled by old codes of chivalry, and are unable to stop an enemy who won’t play by the rules. Then the Turks raid and destroy one of the holiest temples in the land: the magnificent Lord Shiva temple at Somnath.
At this most desperate time, a warrior rises to defend the nation.
The prince of a small kingdom, who sees what must be done for his motherland, and is willing to sacrifice his all for it.
A fierce rebel. A charismatic leader. An inclusive patriot.
This is the compelling story of that lionhearted warrior and the magnificent Battle of Bahraich.
In this, the first of the Indic Chronicles, Amish weaves a powerful tale of courage, heroism and patriotism. Read this blockbuster adventure, based on true events, that recounts the journey of a true Indian hero, one who deserves to be remembered and celebrated by history.

There is a good news.

Amish will try to release book every 6 six months. Not the regular books of the series,as it takes  one and half to two years. So IndicChronicles books will be releasing every six months with the help of other authors having knowledge of those topics.

After Ramchandra series which might take another 3-4 years, Amish might write about Mahabharata or Lord Rudra and Mohini. I'm more eager about Lord Rudra's story because I have a very little knowledge of Lord Rudra. Mahabharata- most of us are familiar about and also it will take a very long time to complete Mahabharata.

Anyway,looking forward to both King Suheldev and Raavan - Orphan of Aryavarta eagerly.

UPDATE - Suheldev book was cancelled due to some unknown reasons. The released date isn't known yet. But Raavan orphan of Aryavarta is expected to be out by mid 2019. To read other books by Amish checkout the links below.
