Revenge, hate and justice often get entangled with each other, and in the process, what is right often gets confusing. And that forms the crux of Aham, where the lives of a demon princess, Vaanee and a Rekhyt warrior, Rwiju are set to collide with each other.

But does one being right mean that the other is wrong? It is an answer that they must find within themselves, before the three worlds collide in a war that will change the fates of all.

OtakuMeganeChan’s Review:

I picked this book because I found the blurb interesting. And boy oh boy! It was true!

The book is about a fiction, mythological, fantasy tale about demons, djinns, elders, spirits, humans, rekhyts, dayans, mages, magic and lot more. What I loved was that it was based in India.. yet it didn’t have lots of elements related to it. It had its own story and buildup and world.

When you start reading from the first page onwards it sucks you deeper into the world of ‘Aham’. You will definitely not be disappointed as it is a Harry Potter meet Game of Thrones meet Lord of the Ring.

The language is slightly hard, but it doesn’t deter you from not reading any further.. instead the words flow with full of ease. It is descriptive but with the right amount.. which isn’t boring.

This book is the first in the trilogy and I am looking forward to the next one ardently!

I have just praises for this book. And a strong recommendation to pick it up ASAP.
