The author insists that this war was as big as Mahabharata. The story is set in 2080 BC. Next set of stories are totally different and set in futuristic world–they are science fiction. In these stories, you will encounter interplanetary battles, intriguing secrets of the universe, aliens the way you find in Hollywood movies and so on.
