It’s a fast-paced story with many twists and turns. Biju keeps the readers invested in. Gradually new characters are introduced, each one of them having a story to tell which Biju expresses in a beautiful way. The characters are well sketched by the author. Vikram’s character was of course my favourite one. Even Ria’s character added spice to the story.
