History Hunters: Chandragupta Vikramaditya and the Shaka Conspiracy
Who would YOU ask for help if you knew of a terrible plot against an emperor 1,600 years ago?
The gutsy foursome – Zoya, Noor, Ansh and Rohan – and their enthusiastic elephant friend Elfu are having second thoughts about their blasts in the past, after their nerve-wracking run-in with the Mughals.
Yet, the next opportunity offered by the mysterious billionaire, who lives next door to their Goa resort, proves irresistible. Off they go again – this time to the fabulous and flamboyant age of the Gupta king Chandragupta Vikramaditya.
A horse-mad teenage princess, an absent-minded mathematician and a face-painting spree are all very well, but what about the super-precious thing in their keeping that no one must know about? And the dark and dangerous secret that they know about the Shakas?
The four friends have to save others – and themselves too! Do they have what it takes?
Join the feisty and funny History Hunters as they brave the eye-popping era of the Guptas in yet another incredible adventure.
