Agni Prakash, our protagonist, is naturally a suave personality but comes with some baggage. The loss of his twin sister has changed his world and his life completely. When he is approached to become Yama’s lieutenant and help him avert certain annihilation that awaits both hell and earth. You see, the populace of the hells that Yama reigns over have escaped and their plans will bring nothing but mayhem. Armed with wit, charm and a manuscript left behind by his sister, Agni is ready to face whatever it takes. But is one human enough? Will he succeed or will he perish in the face of the pure evil that is now on the loose?
One thing that I have come to expect from Anuja Chandramouli is quality in language. Over the last three books she has grown a lot and this time too she has delivered on my expectations. The story telling style and the different narratives within the story have delivered on all my expectations from this author. Her style is certainly enchanting. The plot itself feels a little inspired by our mythology, yet has its own unique flavor. It is an interesting premise which is not very complicated and I kind of expected the ending, yet the pages just flew by. The one thing I would like to point out here is that I wished for more depth and allure from our protagonist. Agni is supposedly this charismatic personality yet at times he felt too simple and his personality didn’t really come through or speak to me. It was more telling and less showing with Agni’s character. It did make it a bit difficult for me to really root for him.
For those of you who have already read her books, you can see that she has grown a bit more into her role as an author. For those who are yet to experience Anuja’s writing, give this book a try if mythology and fantasy interests you.
The story begins with two young twin siblings named Varuna and Agni, both named on Hindu deities of water and fire respectively by their mother. Agni gets into deep trauma due to sudden death of her sister. Still in trauma, he gets chosen by the destiny to save the world from some evil spirits that escaped Yama’s (God of Death) prison of hell. The book also contains the story of Yama’s life from his childhood. The author using her imagination has tried to connect both the mythological and modern worlds in her book beautifully.
This novel is a brilliant blend of action, adventure, drama with an equally wonderful imaginative work. The writing style is very interesting, the story is fast paced and keeps the readers hooked but I myself completed this 361 paged book in 9-10 sittings because of my busy schedule.
Lastly, I would say that the end of the story could have been more interesting but I still appreciate work of the author.
P.S. I review products on amazon to help fellow customers in taking wise decisions and try to ensure that everyone's hard earned money get its full worth. It always makes my day to know that people find my reviews helpful. Feel free to comment for any queries.
Don't MISS this one! She has outdone herself in this work.
