Overall a great story with few loose ends.
I had heard great reviews about this book. Few of my friends even said that this book should not be read in the dark. It is a horror story in a true sense. I mocked at them. Put the kids to bed and under the warm glow of a 40watt bulb started my Kindle.
The story is of Kaivalya. A young orphan from the pages of history who comes to haunt our world due to a curse. For whom she comes is a mystery, but it does affect the lives of many. A forest officer – who loses a friend and whose life was thrown in the path of the wrath of Kaivalya since his newfound love, Tara held a piece of this mystery. One innocent couple whose wife is possessed by Kaivalya to seek her revenge. Why the wife is chosen is again a mystery or was it a random act of a deranged spirit? A young boy kidnapped and he somehow forms the link to this mystery. Many lives haunted, many lives destroyed. Parallel to this story is the story of a kidnapper, a psychopath. Strangely, a good psychopath :D.(I like him) There are many roads travelled in this story to reach a certain point. A point which starts from the beginning of the pages, creates a few nail biting moments and a few curses thrown when the story takes another tangent. A very difficult thing to do, but Sumana has managed to do this with a great flourish. ( I need to get a manicure done after reading this story btw. :) )
What I liked
1) The gripping tale was interwoven in a very interesting way. If you start this book, you wouldn’t want to keep it down.
2) Few shivers. Very difficult to create without the sound effects. (Fluffy, my little Pomeranian, helped. As soon as Kaivalya levitated.. he let out a chilling cry in the middle of the night. He never does that. (My heartbeat went through some major rhythm changes.:)
3) Research very well done. Being a Karnataka history student myself, I understand the digging Sumana had to do for this. (Though not one page of this story can be called a history lesson, which often many such stories end up as, but the history formed the backdrop of the story which answered many of the whys and hows.)
4) I wanted to know why the burning smell was there. I wanted to know why her eyes were depicted like that and I wanted to know who she really was after. A 300 page book becomes an easy read when so many ‘wants’ pushes you forward to reach the end.
5) The places and the food described in this story is very authentic. Felt damn homesick :( The Dosa’s with butter on top and filter coffee… JP Nagar and Malleshwaram were nostalgic moments.Thanks for those Sumana.
