The story begins with the protagonist Amar Bhardwaj, a 24 year old self claimed archaeologist. The protagonist’s father is missing and Amar decides that he needs to find out the truth. He is helped by his girlfriend, Pooja Naidu in this conquest. Amar and Pooja has been in a relationship for 10 years now. The novel is about 150 pages and is narrated by Amar. The narrative style is good. The concept was innovative and the story flows with ease.

The book is a mix of historical fiction and romance. The writing style of the author is good. The language of the book is very simple and understandable. The story left a few loose ends which I hoped would get sorted but unfortunately it did not happen. Which led the story incomplete.
