“Beyond the veils on poverty, pollution, and corruption, I can see the raw, real and naked Mumbai.”
When the story begins the author gives the tint of how he has known Mumbai to be and how it has turned out. He is not disappointed, then he sees her, the girl he falls for, her beauty. The writer very carefully gives every detail without revealing too much. The protagonist in the story is a detective and he chooses this profession because of his father. Eventfully the girl is lost somewhere, dropping something the protagonist called as a family here loom. The detective takes the case in his own hand. His mother is an intrigued one, who provides the detective with free cases. He takes up one case and then ponders about the girl, but will he ever find her?

But being the twist in the story, the beautiful maiden is disappeared and he being unaware of her whereabouts. Now, the protagonist makes himself in charge of finding the girl.
Now when the search begins, he encounters some vivid but voracious creature. They are the guardian and the watchers.

When he is caught in the middle of the fight, he brings out his deductive reasoning and his own newfound superpowers to protect the world from the forces of evil.
The book is an imaginative tale between some strong and interesting characters. The most intrigued part about these book reviews are the names of the characters, they are different yet good to hear. The protagonist has a very helpful character, which does all in his power to help others, respectful of his mother, and smart. All his thinking and witty nature is worth standing ovation in the story.
The story is about good presiding over evil and he has made it his own story, it does not read like same old-same old stories. All the magic that might have been there in the book have been written very “magically”. The narrator does not make it boring for the reader, it's smooth and steady. There were indeed few parts which not very apt but they served their purpose very well. The attention of the reader stays fully intact all through the book. I would recommend this book to every reader who is a fan of the high fantasy drama. The book also is a delight for the naked eye.
