Revenge of the Naked Princess
A Dark Tale on Forced ConversionseBook - 2012
On a hot, humid morning in May 1545, a joint conversion brigade of the Portuguese King and the Pope set out to spread Christ's message of love and compassion, but they leave behind a deathly trail of murder and mayhem. Armed with a monstrous cannon and scores of firearms, the brigade raids Princess Darshana Kamya Kathodi's palace in Tana, carrying for her and her people the King's inviolable conversion orderё sealed by the Pope's promise of a new heaven. The beautiful, 18-year-old tribal princess fights back with her ace archers' poison arrows. Revenge of the Naked Princess shows how brutal, forced conversions can blur the line between religion and carnage. This historical page-turner by veteran journalist-turned-novelist Oswald Pareira comes after the success of his widely-acclaimed, best-selling thriller The Newsroom Mafia.
