In Fal Doram, also called as the great empire of Inkredia, a conspiracy begins to unfold. The first step is an easy one – kill a simple, villager named Luwan. When Luwan suddenly faces an enemy straight out of the folklore, he is left dumbfounded by the mystery why they are after him. As he makes a daring run to survive, journeying through the unknown world outside his village, new mysteries emerge, some closely concerning him. Riddled with questions and hunted by legendary assassins, and by the nonhumans made of the darkest element in the nature, Luwan makes a dangerous journey through the incredible empire of Inkredia.
Probably this seems to be a mixture of Game of Thrones (Fantasy series) and Bahubali (Indian movie). Luwan of Brida is a simple village boy who goes far into kingdoms and faces dangers in his adventures.
The map inside the book is a big plus and I did relate to the places- the visualization really helps understand the places better. This is a fast-paced, hefty book but one of the beautifully narrated books this year. I loved the cover design and editing has been a top notch.
The book is filled with beautifully written and edited letters as well as poems that make it a total package of entertainment and If I can call it a ‘Fantasy Literature Orgasm’- in a good good sense 😉
If you have not read a fantasy series before- start with this book and you will not be disappointed. This book is for both fans and starters of fantasy series.
With so many nutritious staples of the fantasy genre in play, it would be easy for Sarang’s novel to come across either as overly bland or as a confusingly crowded mish-mash. Yet Luwan of Brida dodges this fate by keeping the action-packed, fantastic plot and the characters engaging.
Luwan and the rest of the characters are made interesting. Huge thanks to the actions they take and the world they inhabit.
Ultimately, Luwan of Brida is a noteworthy debut and a great reminder that a dish need not have exotic ingredients or decorative presentation to prove filling and delicious to the fantasy palate.
I can’t wait for the next series -Castle of Taskhkrum.
