    The Palace of Illusions PDF Ô The PalaceKindle - palace mobile, illusions book, The Palace epub, The Palace of Illusions KindleFascinating retelling of Mahabharata from Draupadi's PoV but I did not like the parts where author took the liberty about Draupadi and Karan to the point where she kept blaming herself most for what happened to him It was OTT for me and kinda ruined the book for me
