In an era dominated by the saints rises a kingdom where sins are committed regularly. A kingdom ruled by a noble king but misled by his cruel Masters. Hamish, the cruellest Master with a dream of conquering the world, faces a challenge from an ordinary boy, who in search of his answers finds the reason for his existence. Fire God, the most powerful and loyal Master of the King, is stuck in a dilemma of whether to support the good or the bad.
A story of brutal vengeance where there is no space for the good. Will the good rise to power?
Verdict: Masters of Lygrenn is a gripping mythological ride and after Amish Tripathi you must give Arjun Pawar to make his presence on the scene. The book is a joyful ride amidst fairies and demons.
Review: The cover of the book is apt and well describes the content of the book. The author has been successful in presenting most of his characters at depth, more specifically; the character of Arjuna, the witch of Oshah (I loved this magical character), King Marshell and Hamish etc. The description of the ‘Fire God’ is stupendous, making it alive. The innumerable logical twist hook the reader till the last.
Drawback: The book was too small, i needed it to be more bigger so that i could experience war and history, not that i enjoy history but after reading this novel i felt that i have fallen for it. Thanks to the author, Arjun Pawar.
