Book Review - Daggers of Treason by Niraj Srivastava

To review this book, I must use no less than a strong phrasing of English Language. Why, This book was astonishing, staggering, stunning, and all the praising adjectives that can never fully fathom the wonder and intrinsic beguiling essence of it. To say it was nicely written would be a degradation to the poetic and soothingly mesmerizing writing and an indignity to the metaphorical standards this book has plowed its way to because, in an expression that is full of plaudits, it was deliberately tantamount to its predecessor and in no probable sense did it curtail its spirit. What I loved the most about Daggers of Treason, was the way it captivated me right from the very first pages. I had an implemented settlement in my mind that l was going to fall in love and become engrossed in whatever it had to offer, but I was startled by the fact that, not only was I, in the greatest simplicity of the phrase, falling in love with it, but also clinging to the characters and having my ever-lasting passion to them going through a phase of recrudescence.After all, the Mughals have entered the stage time and again in our lives, sometimes through the text books and other times on the silver screen. I tookjoy in observing them converse in their conspiracies and Merry makings and I couldn't stop myself from going away into the world centuries ago where prevailed such grandeur nesting such hatred and treacheries.

There's something peculiarly enticing about the re-telling about the clandestine tales of the Mughals that kept me persistently at the edge of my seat in anticipation, let alone keen about detecting the occurrences of what might happen as I flip through the pages (There were 400 of them) and fly through the chapters, mainly because, amusingly yet capriciously provocative of major controversy, due to my conspicuous attraction for mischievous villains, l was allured by the Royal King's whose very presence oozes magnetism of being insalubrious, realistic, and unbelievably sadistic to a great extent where the rise of the question of what the identity of the real ruler might be is incredibly well-crafted. l was brought to think I had it all figured out until, lately and without a shadow of a doubt, my train of thought was proven to be completely erroneous. Kudos, dear Author.

The greater portion of the description of the royal nature of this book about the royals goes out for the amazing sketches, the glossary of 168 terms and the wee Bibliography of 23 books. Enlightened a strong desire in me to bug them all but I am pretty tight on my pocket so just cut the idea.
lutherjk. nso I finished reading this around 4:36 in the morning and I recall beatiflcally hyperventilating over it being, in some sense, the apotheosis of an enthralling read. In my own humble opinion, I believe, at present, no book can ever surpass the exuberant sense of adventure this one brought and it being of a figuratively indomitable essence in comparison to any book I've laid hands upon this year. It is indubitably an empowering and a heart-wrenching tale of beauty expressed in eloquent words and lyrical writing, in addition to it containing characters with an aloft spirit of equanimity and complacency when it came to particular and variant conflicting incidents within the story itself.

I rate the book 4.5 out of 5 stars, if you haven't read this book, you can't be a reader!
