It has just been a week since I finished the first volume of the book – The Secrets of Dark. And, then I ordered the sequel from Amazon the same day. Unfortunately, Amazon took almost 3 days to deliver the book. Flipkart is way better, it delivers in just a day, at least the books! So, the wait was very eager.
But, once I got the book, I was a little surprised because it is just 200 pages. I had expected it to be at least 300-350. Anyways, the size is not important. First, let me take you through the story line.
The Saga of Agni : Rise of the Grey Prince by Arka Chakrabarti Book Review
I had underestimated the first part of the book. It has a lot of characters but while writing the review I was not very partial to anyone apart from the main characters of the story which is Agni and Vrish. So, let me expand it a bit more because the characters I left out in the first part have a major role in the second.
Agni and Vrish are the King Himadri’s wards and are brought up with his son Yani. After the climax of the first book, Agni and Vrish are joined by Maharishi Sidak who makes an appearance in the first book. The Maharishi guides Agni in his journey in the first part by answering one of his queries which brings him to where he is today. He is right now fleeing from Nisarga with a secret scroll – ‘The Twin Prophecies’ – to find out the answer which is the third prophecy which holds the truth.
