Set in the British Raj, this well-written tale of love is filled with conspiracy theories, adventure, and mystery. While Bidisha enters Royal Palace to find a way to set her mother free, she meets Yuvaraja Trinabh for whom she developed feelings. In the slow brewing of their mutual love, things develop dramatically reaching a point where Bidisha hurts Trinabh. This leads to a further twisted turn of events and then the story unfolds witnessing Bidisha’s struggle to fulfil her wish.
I liked how the story is conceived and executed with good characterisation and coherence of the plot. The storyline is fine and it would suit people who like historical fiction. In places, I felt that it was getting a bit too much in detail and running slow. However, by the other half, I began to enjoy the development of the plot. In all, I enjoyed reading this thrilling ride.
It might appear to be a long book but if you can stick through it, it will be worth your time. Moreover, the deft design of twists and turns is something a reader would enjoy a lot. The way the book ends on a high note left me wanting more. Now I cannot wait to read the 2nd part.
