I received a complimentary Kindle copy of Hunt for the Horseman by Gita V. Reddy in a LibraryThing giveaway in exchange for a fair review.
I gave this book four stars.
Sandy goes to the palace Amrita Mahal to visit her large family.
There were 150 people visiting there.
"Sandy nodded and Megha continued, 'A piece of advice. Do what they say but be what you are.'"
"Uday complained to his mother and she cajoled Surya, “Son, by hiding your toy you are depriving yourself of so much fun. Why don’t you share it with your brother?”
Surya only smiled and said, “Mother, this is fun. Great fun.”
The Hunt for the Horseman began as a game between two brothers where one hid the horseman from the other. It became a family tradition to look for it.
"You know us, and you mustn’t count your own family. How much of the family history do you know?” Megha asked.
“We are all descendents of King Ravi Shankar. He had two sons, Surya Bhanu and Uday Bhanu. Surya was the one who hid the horseman.”
“Right,” said Megha. “Uday Bhanu had three sons. The first two are no more. His youngest son alone survives.
His name is Pratap Bhanu and he is the head of our family. We no longer have a kingdom but everyone calls him Rajah Sahib.” He is eighty five.
The hunt for the year was cancelled because there were so many people there and it would bother the older people.
Sandy discovered the palace was being sold.
