Not a very good one.
15 May 2019
This is a story based on Indian Mythology. When I began reading this book, I liked it. I loved the plot and the story was page turner.. but unfortunately, as I proceeded, I started to get bored of this book I don't know why. Yes, there were many suspenses but the ending, according to me, was unsatisfying. Maybe I expected more.
But, the plot is surely unique, written with a different and new idea. The language used is simple and easy to understand.
The protagonist, Rudra Pratap Singh, lost his father at an early age of 16. Therefore, at an early age, Rudra prepared to ascend the throne of Devangarh. But, Devangarh is in danger. The constant threat from the British was making the matter worse day by by. Additional to this, Rudra discovers that the death of his father was not accidental but a murder. Amidst all these problems, a mysterious creature was killing many people in Devangarh. While investigating and solving all these problems, Rudra comes across a dark secret that destroys everything.
I really do not have any concrete reason for my dislike towards this book. I did liked it when I started with this. But now, I don't. It became boring and I was not able to gaspe it and I felt like leaving the book in the middle.
But, the plot is new and Rudra's character is very nice.
Those who love mythological and historical books may like reading this.
