After nearly two decades of conflict, a young Prince is not only passed his father’s crown but his ambition to unite the divided kingdom too. However, learning from his father’s mistakes, the young Prince plans to conquer through alliance rather than war.

​“Ploy” by R. S. Chintalapati explores the themes of love and war while noting how the conspirator saved more lives with his plan while just backstabbing a backstabber.
