I am not much of a hindi book reader but this book took me by surprise! The concept and the context of the book is very much interesting and attention grabbing and that brought me towards this book and its series.
If you are into mythology and Indian heritage like books in line with Immortals of Meluha series by Amish Tripati, you would surely fall in love with this book. I loved the creativity and framework of this book that covered up my challenge in reading a hindi book. The characters are etched very well, the framework and the base of the story is very much solid so is the build up, the home work and efforts invested in this book is very much evident. There is no much loopholes, the characters as well as the story is in sync and consistent. It is indeed commendable and praise worthy work by the author.
It is an amazing book that would hit your favorite section very easily. Even if the books/ stories are quite strong enough to stand alone, reading the whole series would give that impact and full picture that would hook you.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and would love to recommend it to my friends and family. I very much would love to read more from this author. Eagerly waiting for more works from him. On a side note, it could reach out to wider mass and reader base if it was in English, on that note, I would like to suggest a translation work on this book.
