SLAYER OF KAMSA: Krishna Coriolis Book 1
Violating the peace accord sealed by his father, King Ugrasena's renegade son Prince Kamsa embarks on a rampage of destruction... until he meets his nemesis King Vasudeva who is supernaturally immune to any attack from Kamsa! So Kamsa allies with the evil Jarasandha, emperor of Magadha, to awaken his own demoniac powers. Returning to Mathura as a rakshasa in human form, Kamsa wrests control by force, imprisoning his new brother-in-law Vasudeva and wife because of the prophecy that foretells that their Eighth Child will be his destruction. But even in the womb, the unborn Krishna uses powerful magic to cast a spell across the entire kingdom on the night of his own birth! Now, the stage is set for the epic clash of the child-god and the terrible forces of evil with the birth of Krishna...Slayer of Kamsa!
