Volume Two continues this fast-paced tale of mystery and sorcery up to canto 28. Nara*vahana*datta's epic quest to become the human emperor of the sorcerers leads him and his companions to win yet more wives. Unfortunately, the surviving manuscripts of the text break off while he is in pursuit of his sixth wife. The primary narrative is punctuated by diverting subplots.
