I found the very first book of this series average but the concept of Ram being looked upon for the decline of sapt Sindhu was intriguing. The second book was a page turner loved the way the characters were introduced and the pacing and story. This lead me to have high expectations of this 3rd book. But boy am I disappointed. I am literally skimming through pages unable to bear the languge used and the plot. There are even lines like 'this story is for another book' when talking about Vasistha and Viawamitra. It feels like a bollywood movie rather than a well thought through book we expect from Amish.
