Stri’s Take On It:
Many of you know that I love mythological fiction and I have reviewed quite a few books in that genre. In fact, this is my favorite genre. That was one of the reasons I picked this book to review. This book is the first book of the Krishna Trilogy Series. The other two books are yet to be published. The story however doesn’t deal with Krishna in this book. Actually, it is about Krishna, but from the point of view of Kamsa, the noble prince who became an evil king. The story explores on why and how Kamsa became heartless and cruel and what made him imprison his own sister.
- The story is fresh and unique. It is actually very much informative too, especially for Myth-Fic lovers like me.
- The reading style is quite decent and neat.
- Too long, dragging, and unwanted screenplay. Either the book should have been a standalone book with the stories of forthcoming novels too written in this, or the book should have been shorter. A better editor is the need of the hour for this author.
Do I recommend? No! The story was good and interesting, but there are a lot of let-downs.
