Review: 

First of all I must thank the author and the publisher to grant me this ARC. 

I usually love movies and book that are based on a plot comprising of mystical artifacts. So naturally when I read the descruption of the book, I was optimistically intrigued and excited. But unfortunately this was a letdown. The plot is quite good. But the style of narration and the characters are relatively weak and do nothing for it. All the chapters are inconsistent in length, which kind of makes for an abrupt reading in the flow. The lead characters had so much potential, but throughout the entire book it just felt like the characters were just making a statement; there was no true involvement. The storyline could have been more developed; I am again putting the lack of development on to the style if narration. 

The title definitely needs work; it sounds more like a name for the series rather than the book itself. The cover image needs more definition than whatvit is currently now. 

My opinion: It’s a book that has potential to become a successful series. But right now, it needs lot of work. 

My rating: 1.5 out of 5
