The three principal characters of this book are; Manu, symbolizing the eternal soul committed to creating, Kamayani as the sanctified sentiment that provides core strength, and Ira is symbolic of the mind's unstable diversions. it is written in a ballad form, beautifully utilizing live characters as metaphors to define the complex occupations of heart, mind, and soul.
The story starts with Ira, the ambitious, and bold princess of the Asur empire of Causeruman, the only daughter of king Shambarasur she is loved by all and pampered to the core, so when she rejects to marry the army chief Barasur and decides to go on a year-long exploitation journey the King complies without batting an eye. There are four parts that make the readers notice the intricate detailing of the story's development. The language is lucid. The book has very strong female characters. From Ira, the protagonist herself to Nadia, her best friend.
It's my first mythology read, haven't read this genre before so being a first-time reader I enjoyed it a lot. The language of the book and the narration are easy to keep track of which made the reading an enjoyable experience. It is a very nice and different book. A mild touch of thrill keeps you excited and indulged during reading. Though it has a mild touch of mythology, I liked that the characters are used properly. The storyline is really interesting.
If you are looking to read something short and sweet, just go for it!
