  1.  Excellent first book - waiting for the next instalments 5 May, 2013 On
    An excellent first book by Jash.
    The action starts almost immediately, from the first chapter and does not let up till the end.
    The book runs through some very interesting twists and turns and keeps you engaged through out.

    Jash has invented a fantastic concept of Wordkeepers, immortals beings from our own mythology. Full marks for doing that.

    Will try and avoid spoilers here. Largely the book follows the course of actions taken by two individuals on the good side and a team led by a kind of supernatural on the evil side.
    The twists and locales are very well done, the canvas she has created is also very interesting. Not only does she take you across India but also in to space.

    Having finished this one, now I cannot wait for the next one to come out.

    If you haven't yet, then please go out and buy it.

    Just for the record, I started Oath of the Vayuputras first, but when I started this, that got left by the wayside. Still haven't gone back to it. Fully recommend this one to anyone who remotely likes fantasy fiction or just wants to enjoy a rollercoaster of a good story.
