book review: The tenth riddle

Author: Sapan Saxena.

What happens when a princess dies under mysterious circumstances on the same day as her coronation? Six years later an Investigating officer with the IB accompanied by a local politician and a best-selling author who dabbles with ancient history, gets together to launch an investigation into the death of the princess.

A prophecy made centuries ago consisted of ten riddles, engulfing a powerful secret that could destroy everything in its wake if unraveled. As the trio prod into ancient enchantments involving sacred feminism and Hindu mythology, they realise the disclosure is like quicksand ready to swallow them if they let their guard down. What follows is a dangerous sojourn as they unearth the deepest secrets the province has ever known.

The author’s exhaustive research involving the Mahavidya’s and the Adishakti concept is commendable. The Ardhnarishwar theory has been aptly utilised in the narrative.

Overall an interesting perspective and a treat for mythology/historical lovers.

A little content editing could further improve the narrative.

Available on Amazon.
