This is fantasy fiction in authentic Indian settings par excellence. The quality of writing is powerful and beautiful, almost surreal. The story, the characters, the plot, the scene beginnings and endings, the pacing, the narrative, the sub plots, the chapter names, the English oh my god everything and everything about "The Guardians of Halahala" is simply superlative. I cannot avoid hyperbole while praising this work, at least to me, this is one of the best books I have ever read. (Only Ashwin Sanghi's Chanakya Chant and Neil Gaiman's Neverwhere had such effects on me earlier). The storyline fleetingly reminds me of the Lord of the Rings and that sets the bar very very high, doesn't it? Do we have an Indian J.R.R Tolkien in the making?

I eagerly look forward to the next books in the trilogy. I have no doubt the book will get rave critical acclaim, now I hope it also does well commercially. I am convinced this trilogy deserves its place among the other famous trilogies in the market, and if I may borrow a few characters out of the book - Shukracharya's bones and Mother Oracle's elements are telling me we have a blockbuster in the offing:-)
