    Hello everyone,

    I finished reading PS last week. And want to read the continuation. I came to know about these two books Nandhipurathu Nayaki and Kaviri Maindhan. Which book should I read first? I mean, which book starts immediately after the happenings of PS. Please suggest me.

    Thank you.

    • Divya E

      Read Kaviri Maindhan first, that ill give u the exact continuation of Ponniyin Selvan. And Nandhipurathu Nayagi doesn’t look like the continuation from Ponniyin Selvan, think its a imaginated story..

  • hello all…. in the process of reading and addicted… I’d like to know what was Vanthiyathevan’s age around the time of these happenings in the story.. and why does Wikipedia say that Crown Prince Aditha Karikalan was assassinated under “unclear” circumstances? How did Shri. Kalki come up with his own theory?

    • Abinayaa

      the age of vanthiyathevan was 25 I think, it is mentioned somewhere in the book . wikipedia says that Aditha karikalan was assassinated under unclear circumstances because, when he was killed the lights went off and there are many suspectable people like nandhini were present and no one can tell who killed him
