Story Summary

The Magnificent Bhajan, long ago banished from the Maharaja's palace for an insult, is now returned for the golden ceremony hoping to find a welcome within. His magic is long gone and only illusion remains. But he will have to summon enough of his youthful skill to save his old friend the Maharaja from an assassination attempt by Ranjeet the Usurper.
