My latest book is The One Who Swam With The Fishes.

"A mesmerizing account of the well-known story of Matsyagandha ... and her transformation from fisherman’s daughter to Satyavati, Santanu’s royal consort and the Mother/Progenitor of the Kuru clan." - Hindustan Times

"Themes of fate, morality and power overlay a subtle and essential feminism to make this lyrical book a must-read. If this is Madhavan’s first book in the Girls from the Mahabharata series, there is much to look forward to in the months to come." - Open Magazine

"A gleeful dollop of Blytonian magic ... Reddy Madhavan is also able to tackle some fairly sensitive subjects such as identity, the love of and karmic ties with parents, adoption, the first sexual encounter, loneliness, and my favourite, feminist rage." - Scroll

Absolutely blown away by this series. Yes, it's another Mahabharata retelling but a version that's sort of explores similar stuff to the project that I'm working on right now (there are only nine original plot lines in the world.) Extremely readable even for people not familiar with the story and told High Fantasy style with complex characters and lots of plot. I tore through the first one and am just about to begin the second. #nowreading #250in2016 #readingchallenge #bookstagram
