Book - Tarikshir Author - Khayaal Patel Publisher - Westland Rating - ★★★★

Author Bio: (from book) Khayaal Patel is working on newer stories set in Rudra’s exciting universe, and when he is not, you can find him reading comic books, watching movies, trying to figure out the secrets of the universe and indulging in his incredibly unhealthy addiction to anything chocolate. This is his first novel.

Book Review: "Tarikshir" by Khayaal Patel is a fantasy drama adventure thriller set during the early history of the British Rule in India. It extracts mythological references from Ramayan and from the aftermath of the battle between Ram and Ravan. The entire 330 pages is a masterpiece as we find many plots and sub-plots contributing to a beautiful narrative. There is a thrill, reference, mystery, truth, evil and even Game of Thrones inspired villains but more Indian in taste and flavor. This book calls for a perfect movie plot should it one day ever get adapted on screen.

Rudra is the hei…
