Mythological books have always been close to my heart, only if they have been written well and the author manages to make the readers glued to the book till the end. Otherwise, the book will get boring and lose its charm. I have read a previous book by the same author and had too many expectations from this book. This one was not that great but was still a good read. I give it 4 stars out of 5 and here is my review of it:-
As a kid, I have heard the story of Prahalad. So, it was interesting to read this book and connect with the characters. The way the author has narrated the incident where Holika sat in the fire with Prahalad on her lap is commendable. Also, there is a story of Narasimha who was a brave soldier and was believed to be an avatar of Lord Vishnu. So, a lot of war and thrilling scenes are there in this book which made it an interesting read.
Maybe I had too many expectations from this book but found nothing extraordinary in it so I am a bit disappointed. The cover of this book is beautiful and the style of writing was a simple one. The plot has been organized well so that readers find it easy to connect with a series of events. For me, the title could have been more creative.
If you are a fan of mythology, you should go for this book.
