I came across the fact that this book took 7 long years for the author to finish. That effort was very much seen inside the book. This book has a plot, has a story , has thriller, has nail biting events and even N number of illustrations.

I had always thought the scene illustrations in a book would be a threat to readers imagination and creativeness. But this book had other plans. The illustrations were pretty much enormous and it was hard to believe that would it be possible like that? . It was cinematic through out the book. While reading this you will definitely feel the traces of few movies you had admired and loved.

The book can be splitted into three part of Empyrea as like Past, present and future.

The past part was almost the description of Empyrea which was quiet astonishing with the nature and beings. you will almost feel like travelling to Empyrea. The future is full of action and revenge and this is the part which takes the whole limelight from all. The stage is set for you to enjoy the full action thriller war sequence.

Coming to the present part is where I felt bored or the story became too lean with similar kind of descriptive as past Empyrea. The Empyrea description through the eyes of four human lords. Although it had many important facts for the story line, the similar and repeated description part could have been avoided.

The other fact which is little disappointing is the human characters( this is purely from social point of view, my view) who were criminals and assassins in earth becomes so good in Empyrea just like that and become great lords. May be the human characters could have been little inspiring as in Earth too.

The Illustrations and description are the ultimate plus for this book. If you are fantasy lover and you wish to experience a cinema experience while reading a book then this book will not disappoint you.

Glad to see many Indian fantasy authors. Let’s bring it on more and more .
