Feb 14, Shekhar rated it really liked it.

Having read kyalvizhi books from Akilan, I have started to like his writing. His writings are similar to Kalki and he has novek art of using the language to the best of his advantage, the scenes, characters, places, expressions, emotions, storyline. This book was unique in the sense, all my noveo readings were centered around Chola kings and their glory, but this one for a change was about Pandya kings. I haven’t come across too many books glorifying Pandya kings.

Story was slow to start with but eventua Having read 2 books from Akilan, I have started to like his writing. Story was slow to start with but eventually picked up and had twists till the end. However, there was nothing exceptional about the storyline itself.

Overall, a good read if you like to read historic stories in tamil. Nov 16, Ekanth rated it really liked it. Apr 09, Babu Gandhi rated it it was amazing.
