The story is about 15th century scenario of Cambodian prince who seeks help from different countries as two cities of Cambodia are in conflict. This book is a historical tale of a love triangle that sparked a war between two kingdoms, Angkor Wat and Ankor Thom both were involved in war and the only reason, to win the heart of princess Mandagini. The beauty about the book is the language.
I would recommend it all my friends who like to read fiction which has historical setting and has long descriptive portions about that.
