When she is married off to the dissolute ruler of Kashmira, she must learn to hold her own in a court ridden with factions and conspiracies. But Didda is no ordinary queen. Ruthless and ambitious, she wants to rewrite history. Will she succeed? Queen of Ice is a compulsive read that brings alive the turbulent history of tenth - century Kashmir with an exquisite balance of fact and fiction.
