A small princely state in Rajasthan is the last bastion of resistance against the might of the British Empire. While unrest surrounding the sudden death of the king of Devangarh grows, young prince Rudra Pratap Chauhan prepares to ascend the throne.

But the kingdom is in turmoil. The Devangarh army is outnumbered and the British forces are closing in. To make matters worse, Rudra discovers the king’s death may not have been accidental after all. The strange appearance and disappearance of a mysterious hooded stranger and a series of ritualistic murders in which the bodies have been drained of blood, spread panic across the realm.

As Rudra struggles to manage his new responsibilities and investigate his father’s death, dark secrets will be uncovered that will disrupt life as he knows it.


Tarikshir: The Awakening

It’s never easy to create a story in the ancient time and this book does that perfectly into the 19th century.
More interesting thing about the story is that it tries to connect to two time periods of Ramayana and British rule.

The story is mythological as well as historical which makes the concept interesting.

Since the blurb already described much about the plot rest of it is to be read with suspense with full of fantasy and thrill.

The story is very well narrated, characters are strongly created and scenes are created in a systematic manner.

The length of the book is another interesting prospect as such a story cannot be finished in 100 pages but this one is well paced such that you can read it whole day, the story has lot of elements to witness and I was lucky reading it.

The cover is just an additional beauty to story inside which does not fail to fullfil the expectations with proper editing and grammar.

Well if you have read books rarely like one in a time and looking for different genres, then this is one book you should experience reading and get the joy of all different genres at one place.


I will rate it ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
