"A story with a princess, a lying king, a cheating lord, a period of exile, a lesson in what matters in life, a family that argues and cheats, and a mystical element that gives magical weapons from the great beyond... This book showcases why the graphic novel format has become one of the leading and best ways to help tell a story... This is a story that will inspire and fill the reader's mind with faith and drive for their own lives."
-- Mark Squirek, "The New York Journal of Books"
"I "highly recommend" Campfire's comics. They do what they are intended to do and do it in a way that excites kids about classic literature."
-- Chris Wilson, The Graphic Classroom (a resource for teachers and librarians)
A mysterious prophecy resounds, and the bewitchingly beautiful princess Draupadi arises from the sacred fire in Panchala. Draupadi is in love with Arjuna, the Pandava prince. But fate weaves a strange story and Draupadi finds herself wedded to five men ? Arjuna and his four Pandava brothers. Draupadi?s life is complicated further by the Kauravas -- her husbands? wicked cousins-- who try everything in their power to harm her and the Pandavas. The fiery princess Draupadi?s terrible destiny begins to unfold. From majestic queen with five warrior husbands, she is reduced to a servant girl. Evil waits at every corner, and a great war looms ahead. Her only comfort is her friend, Krishna. Will the impulsive Draupadi brave the humiliation destiny has written for her? Must she lose everything she has loved? Adapted from the ancient Indian epic, the Mahabharata, this is the story of an astonishingly outspoken woman, who is abandoned at every turn, and forced to make the difficult choice between revenge and compassion.
