With an enchanting writing style, it’s a fast-paced story, an adventure that you must witness. The story gets more and more exciting, full of suspense with each chapter. I liked how each chapter is titled on the name of each of Nav Durga.

The strong, well-developed characters steal the show. I fell in love with Ishan’s character, the powerhouse of knowledge, the determined and strong Shakti and the master of solving the mystery, Shoumik. Each of them had their own journey, and the way they solved this case is just fantastic.

The way Ishan explains each riddle, and the discussions around it are super interesting to read.

The author builds excitement for the readers along with many unheard stories from Hindu mythology. I loved the way the events were taking place making this book more exciting. From educating people to finding clues and revealing the secrets, it’s a rollercoaster journey.
