Language is Simple, crisp and lucid. The smooth flow of words makes the narrative not only easy but engrossing too. The characters be they the protagonists or the supporting souls, are well articulated, thus making it easy for the reader to relate to them, their views, their actions and reactions. In fact one can easily don their shoes and live the story without feeling ill at ease/ appearing odd. Each one of them contributes to taking the story forward without a hitch, without a hurdle. The author’s mastery over the language is evident from the terms he has used and the vivid description of events that unfold in the pages of the book. To write is an art, to keep the reader spellbound and yearning for more is magic. The book brings out sibling love at its best and also addresses certain social issues in subtle yet powerful strokes. This book deals with every aspect of struggles a women undergone during the ancient time and also serves a great social message about eunuch community. There are a few typos and one or two places where the author has made contradictory usages that need to be rectified. My favorite protagonist of this story is Maharani Meeramani. The book has worth to be carried and flaunt because it has got a magical touch of love which can be done in a single sitting.
A wonderful read, one I’ll strongly recommend to all book lovers. I'm sure that those who don't like the historical friction will not be disappointed after reading the book.
Overall Ratings- 4/5 Stars
The book opens up with the story of the Maharana Ranjeeth Singh’s kingdom and later it unveils the flashback of Ranjeeth’s father, Surya Dev Pratap Singh’s history which uncovers the struggles faced by Surya Dev as his own queens and children fought with each other. Grasping his father’s life as a lesson, Ranjeeth determines to marry as many wives as he want but was sure enough that he will get child to the throne from the only wife he loves. He then marries Vaishali, Ambika and Meeramani. Vaishali expires at an young age and Ambika conceives with the heir to the throne. Meeramani and Ambika share a bond more than real sisters. Then destiny rules their life, when they found that Ambika’s child, Samar Dev is a eunuch. Further the book expands on why the king plotted a plan to kill his own son and how Meeramani managed to decode his plan with her intellectual thoughts.
Build up in ancient days, the author has very well narrated every incidents and the characterisation helps to maintain coherence in the book. The gripping story line engages the readers with the book till the end. It may not be easy to narrate a historical plotted book, but the author has done with an ease. The conversations between father and son serves some important life lessons. The usage of simple words with lucid language helps to finish off the book in a single go. The cover of the book suits well with the story but it could have been better to attract readers. The blurb gives a deep insight on what’s hidden in the book. The editing errors could have been avoided.
A great book with a good social message. Worth the time spent.

The plot is set up very interestingly, historical thrill with an essence of social cause. The fight for good, and for own community is shown brightly in the book, the generations, the royalness, the beauty of that era, and setting up a fiction story is amazing. You could literally imagine the story pace. The goodness of kings wife and the motherhood is brilliantly put up into words.
The cover indicates much of bravery and strength. The book name is fine. The plot has been crafted well. The writing skills of author has shown up the research part.
The book has minor editing and grammatical errors, maybe editor should have taken more care regarding it.
Over all a good read.
