My review: In the previous book of the series, the story ends with Ekalavya being the new king of Rudrapur. This second book starts from this very point.
Though Rudrapur has a new king, there is something that is still under the blanket that has to be sorted out. With this mystery line, the author has given his readers a good story that deals with kings, kingdoms, royal life, treachery, etc.
It is a hide and seeks game within the officials of the kingdom who knows the secret but act as if they don’t no. What is the secret is what is all the story is about. With many facets, the story runs in a good tempo.
What I like: 1. The small illustrations of the properties used in the story are interesting to see while reading 2. The story is a perfect sequel without any information being missed 3. The font size and page indentation makes the book a comfortable one 4. The mystery element is sustained very well in the book until the time of revelation. 5. The series is readable by a reader of every age.
What I didn’t like: There is nothing to be disliked.
Characters: All the characters as in the first part are very well-plotted.
Narration: Fast-paced and engaging narration is found in the story.
Language & Grammar: Simple language with nice vocabulary is observed in the story.
My Final Verdict: Good fantasy fiction
