After getting some initial feedback on Abhaya Draft1, I started to write an alternate plot in which I hope to improve the characterization and maintain character consistency unlike the plot 1 :)
I want to work on the characterization of the antagonists like Subandhu and Veerabahu. I realized that the draft one has demonized the above without subsatantial causes. A proper characterization also required a deeper research into the Mahabharata which is the base epic for this fiction. The Socio-political scenarios in the epic have a substantial influence on the plot and characters of Abhaya.
Readers are welcome to give their feedback after reading the original work and this working draft. Of course the plot will have some significant changes. Hope to keep you entertained as well as hooked :)
