Book: The Conspiracy At Meru Author: Shatrujeet Nath Genre: Mythological Fiction Publisher: Jaico Books
If you have read first book of the series Vikramaditya Veergatha, The Guardians Of Halahala you will want to know more about what happened next.
Honestly I couldn’t wait to start the second book instead of posting the review of previous book first.
This actually sums up what I think of the story but I will be little more elaborate on this.
Thwarted by Vikramaditya and his nine councilmen, Devlok and Indra are thirsting for revenge and plotting more ways to lay hands on Halahala. While Vikramaditya is busy defending his and his allies borders from Sakas and Hun invaders, the Asuras and their teacher scheme to cast a spell for destruction of the council and the human king .
Another character, Indra’s son comes in play. The young deva seeks appreciation from his father and independently unleashes havoc on Ujjaini which is already fighting for survival on all fronts.
With chaos reining on his beloved city and his council divided, Vikramaditya is neck deep in trouble. The only thing that keeps him go on is the knowledge that Halahal is safe from troublemakers.
The second book in series continues to engage. I kept turning pages in anticipation . The pace of narrative does not slacken throughout the story. At times I wanted to jump right in the story and help the king fight all the evil.
This mytho-fiction is a gripping tale that keeps you returning for more.
