Customer Review

on 6 January 2015
A mythological thriller? Sounded implausible when I first heard about it, especially given our own set notions on mythology.But this completely blew my mind... hitherto unrelated mythological events seamlessly interwoven into a story that makes sense, absolutely superb!

To take the premise of the Sagarmanthan and focus on the poison when all other accounts only focus on the nectar, lends to an excellent story with lots of intrigue, action and epic battles.

But what sets this book apart are the characters. Each of the key protagonists (Vikramaditya apart) has been created by the author and they have been so finely etched, with such dellightful nuances to their characters, that they resonate in the memory much after the last page as been read. The brave Vararuchi, the loyal Kalidasa, the wise Vetala Bhatta or the standout women protagonists Kshapanaka and Shanku all make you want to read more...

In fact the only disappointing thing about this book was that the second part isn't ready yet. I read it at one go, just could not put it down!

Can't wait for the second part.
