Book Review:

First let me confess that I do not read mystery or horror novels very often. But the blurb of “Invoked: Hymns of War” was so impressive that I could not help picking it up for reading and I am glad I did. The plot and storyline of the book is simply amazing and a real page turner. The reader gets hooked to it from the very beginning. The simple and lucid language used by the author makes the reading experience much more enjoyable. Usually it is very difficult to hold the interest of the user in horror novels but the way the author has presented the story, makes the book unputdownable. The characters of the book are very interesting and realistic. Though I liked all of them but I liked the witch; it was fun (maybe scary?) reading about her. Felt bad for Krishna for what he had to go through.

All in all a very intriguing and well written book. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. Looking forward to the next book in the series.
