Want to know more I’m not going to reveal the plot but definitely i will build the curiosity for you .

The character that took my heart was of Khusru , being the one behind different identities , masked behind orders of the “Bearded Man” and veiling his own identity from all .

Apart from Khusru , I liked that author mentioned and profoundly described the issues of national security , feminism , environmental degradation by humans and cross-border terrorism .ย 

SSTRONG POINTS

1) Narration is very strong , having well researched and intricately built characters and their backgrounds .ย 

2) The use of local language , personal touch , and actual representation of lifestyle on the mountains is commendable.

3 ) The slow pace actually proves fine with all descriptive detailings as you won’t understand but when plot will twist ,then you will understand how much involved you became with a certain character .

4) The use of Dhauladhar mountains as suggestive of future makes the plot more enthralling and intriguing .ย 

5 ) Writer shares his personal experience related too technicalities of dam construction and lives of people around .ย 

WWEAK POINTS :

1) Too many characters create a moment where it’s confusing to relate and recall what happened with whom .ย 

2) The slow pace is bearable by some , but gets too slumpy after certain time .ย 

3) The climax ends too short . Like narration picks up speed and the story ends . So it feels disappointing as at that time curiosity too know more is at its peak .

So as a debutant novelist , author has done a great job . This one is definitely to be read and get your copy from the link below . So I will keep posting on new books and will help you to decide on your tbr .ย
