TreeShade Books releases Vineet Bajpai’s novel: DELHI – City of the Blood Gates

New Delhi (India), June 29: National bestselling author Vineet Bajpai has once again brought to life those forgotten and electrifying chapters of Indian history. After the success of Mastaan – The Fallen Patriot of Delhi and 1857 – The Sword of Mastaan, part 3 of the Delhi Trilogy, the much-awaited DELHI – City of the Blood Gateswas recently released at Delhi Gymkhana Club. The launch event kicked off with a tête-à-tête over books and stories among the eminent authors – Vineet Bajpai, Kevin Missal, and Harini Srinivasan who moderated the interaction. Vineet also read a few excerpts from his new book, drawing applause from the audience.

The growing popularity for Vineet’s signature, wide-spectrum writing genre – that of historical and mythological thrillers, combined with modern-day crime, religion, and action – is reflected in the nationwide success of his first fiction body-of-work – the Harappa Trilogy. Counted among the biggest literary hits of the last decade, the Harappa Trilogy will soon be seen as full-scale motion pictures. At the launch event, Vineet also put his readers’ yearning to rest by making an exciting announcement about Dhoomketu – the next book in his acclaimed Harappa Trilogy.

The Delhi Trilogy takes the reader deep into the violent and mystical era of the Great War of 1857, India’s first struggle for independence. It is a gripping and intense tale of love, deceit, ambition, occult, sacrifice, and courage. The story presents powerful, new, multi-layered characters, and also brings to life some historical ones like Mirza Ghalib, Bahadur Shah Zafar, Tipu Sultan, Zeenat Mahal, John Nicholson, Theo Metcalfe, and many others. This period saga teleports the reader to a bygone era, inside the walls of 1857 Red Fort, to the havelis, bazaars, and mushairas of puraani Dilli. It brings to life the devastating battle for Delhi . And amidst all the cannon-thunder, heroic duels, palace conspiracies, haunted treasures, possessed djinns, and bloody battles – unfolds an immortal love story. Delhi – City of the Blood Gates is Vineet’s ninth book.

Speaking at the book launch, Vineet Bajpai said, “It is my boundless love for Delhi and its glorious yet haunting past that encouraged me to pen down this Trilogy. As a resident, admirer, and researcher of this magnificent city, I felt that the poetry of Mir and Ghalib, the legend of Dilli’s fierce warriors, the proud courtesans, the refined cuisine, the crumbling Mughal empire, and the city’s breath-taking history… all needed to be brought to the hands of the reader. But most of all, it was the oft-forgotten tale of the unsung heroes of 1857 Delhi that had to be brought back into public discourse. The sacrifices and valor of those sons and daughters of Hindustan had to be rekindled in the consciousness of our great nation. I am certain that my readers will thoroughly enjoy this edge-of-the-seat conclusion of the Delhi Trilogy.”

“Vineet’s profound affection for the city of Delhi shines through in the portrayal of its enchanting beauty in the Delhi Trilogy. I believe that history enthusiasts and literary connoisseurs will gain a fresh perspective on the momentous events of 1857 after viewing them through Vineet’s unique literary lens. The trilogy serves as a testament to Vineet’s artistry, as he skillfully intertwines history, romance, fantasy, and the rich tapestry of Delhi, leaving an indelible mark on the minds and hearts of his readers,” said Vikas Misra, Chief Editor of TreeShade Books.
