13 YEAR OLD QUEEN
The 13-year-old Queen and Her Inherited Destiny is a historical fantasy fiction based on the freedom struggle of the Rongmei Nagas against the British rule.
“If you peacefully bow and stop talking of uncharitable things about your rulers, you will be set free. Understood?”
“You are not a ruler, Sherman. You are a thief and a coward. One day, you will be driven out of this land shamefully and you will never set foot here again. Mark my words.”
“The Zeilad lake was pulsating with a strange light as something seemed to rise up from its waters. Something Dikanang could only have imagined in the wildest and the most ridiculous dreams. A seven-headed python rose from its depths, half-submerged in the lake waters.”
Based on the true story of the freedom fighters, Rani Gaidinliu and Haipou Jadonang, this book recreates the 1900s and the Indian Independence movement in the north-east, especially among the Nagas.
“You have run long enough. Now, you die.”
Dijeanliu smiled, unnerving Martin.
“Freedom fighters don’t die, Martin. They are immortalized in the books of heaven. You may kill me. But you cannot kill my spirit.”
