Talking about the story, our protagonist Anantya Tantrist found a strange case of Nishada girls' death. Being tantric, she tried twice to prevent girls but she failed. She also found out that ancient immortals were kidnapped or taken to another world. She found many powerful people behind the scene. Neel, her long-lost boyfriend appeared in front of her to make her life more difficult. And yes, how can I forget strange dreams & vission she had about near death experience. Read the book to know more.
I liked the darkness around which story and various characters evolved. It took me some time to engage with the story. The way Anantya's character was defined is awesome. A badass courageous tantric fighting with big shots of the dark world with bare minimum help. The series properly promoted and filmed can create a big fan following because it has its own magical creatures, charms, ingredients, places and what not. A good series to follow for 18+ guys and girls.
I had high expectations from this book but unfortunately, it wasn't as good as the first one. I sure expected it to be more about Anantya's past. But the premise and the writing wasn't as engaging as the first one.
It has some great characters and the story is overly enjoyable. So you should give it a try.
