My review: The book is very much of those fairy tales that I grow up reading to – prince, princess, masters, rulers, villains and the usual clash between two bordering kingdoms. I don’t like fantasy stories as they stretch a lot and this book was the same too lengthy with 31 chapters accompanied by a boring narration. I had to stop the book in between as I could not take it anymore. The frequent grammatical and punctuation errors all over the book made it a devastating read. Typographical errors were more, I am sure the book went into publishing without an editor reading and checking the mistakes.

Verdict: 1/5
