Talking about the story, I am as much a fan of Little Brother, Katamayo, Mudrika and a lot of others as I am for the Devil. More than the characters, I am impressed by the jobs they were destined to; the circumstances and consequences that led them to; and the thought processes and the alternative theories they all worked upon.
This would be a real great story for the elders to tell the kids at home. In the initial stages, I felt bit bored as there were lot of characters involved in it but once I started to submerge myself in the book, it was a sheer pleasure.
This is a old story given in a new platter. What I liked the most is the screenplay because the events were weaved very well that would beat your boredom, if you have had in the beginning like me. The story begins with a death of a King who controlled Kingdom of Khaga which acted as a force to ensure the peace keeping between the First and the Second Nation and when the Peace Treaty was about to be signed, the death of the King hits as a jolt. The Prince reluctantly agrees to take over the reigns. here were doubts as to what would have caused the death of the King and few people - 4 Brothers (as they were called) and Devil(a woman) sets on a mission to find the truth.
They were ably assisted by Minister, Angla which unfolds the real culprit and the reason why this person wanted to kill the King and who this person was - is the real suspense which I would not reveal it here since you need to buy the book to find it for yourself :-)
Best Wishes to Sindhura yet again!! Awaiting your next book in this series
Set in the fictional era, King of Jalika is a noble man who has developed his Kingdom. Jalika, a resourceful kingdom is a common trade between the first nation and the second nation. To keep the peace between all the nations King has decided to sign a peace treaty. Things went upside down when the king was found death just a week before the peace events.
Prince Nigam is there to take a temporary responsibility of Kingdom. The important officials of two nations are also present to sign the treaty but there is a smell of conspiracy in everything.
The group of brotherhood, who has reemerged with a cause to find the mind behind the death of King, meets to a mysterious Devil who helps them to decode many quests appearing in the palace.
With the help of brave official Angla and minister they have to find the perpetrators ensuring the peace events go without any hurdles.
Will they manage to find and stop the culprit before time? If yes, then what are their motives? Read this book to know the gripping first saga of Khaga.
The stories of Kingdoms are always fun and exciting to read and this book has taken the story to the next level. I need to appreciate the author that she has managed to narrate a story without mentioning the name of various characters like the King, little brother and the devil. The bravery of little brother and devotion of Devil is really amazing to read. With each page story intrigues the mind of readers urging them to flip the page. I am eagerly waiting for the next part to know more about devil and brotherhood. This book could be a great choice to read on the weekend over a cup of coffee!
The story has a lot of variables and that's how the author keeps the reader engaged and away from the real plot. The writing has a lot of narration for the smallest event happening and that should be cut down a little as most of it can be imagined by the reader. A crisper writing here would be helpful, particularly critical in this genre.
The storyline has some exceptional merits like the code being used but if the writer developed it at a depth to a level where stalwarts like Dan Brown write, this could have been easily one of the best books coming out from the country this year.
Despite the short comings the story keeps you engaged and thinking till the last page. Sindhura's mind weaves great plots and I shall be waiting for more from her.
The genre is Fantasy thriller. Plot is laid out well in the starting chapters and progressed well.
The language used in the book is simple and can be understood easily.
As an amateur reader, I was able to visualize what was happening in the book.
Such was the detailing and the portrayal of the characters.
Thumbs up to Sindhura on her debut.
The author has successfully made a tight story. Logical and inventive and interesting.
Her attention to detail, can be seen in every scene of the book. She has described every detail in such depth, it really helps the reader see the world that she sees and understand it better.
Worth a read :)
