The book begins with a very interesting scene where we see Timak, a Monfrit and his master who have been imprisoned in a cell for centuries. Despite the magical walls that inflict severe pain, they manage to send a message.
We are then introduced to our protagonist Luwan in the small town of Brida. He is collecting herbs to sell them as he needs to pay the tax collector. He is unable to do so and he and his sister Meg are forced to escape the village. They are helped by the mysterious Kiliarn to reach the city. However, they are chased by Ghork riders- creatures that eat human flesh.
Throughout the book, we are lead to believe that Luwan has a higher purpose that he knows and he would soon meet his destiny.
This book is an action packed-fantasy read. There were mysterious and magical things happening one after the other. The plot did drag a bit and I felt like it was being repetitive. Still, I was very eager to know what happens next.
I highly enjoyed this book. It is a great fantasy read with the perfect mixture of excellent world-building and plot. The ending was mysterious and left a lot of potential for the book.
Inkredia-Luwan of Brida is a well-written fantasy book by an Indian author that isn’t based on mythology. It is an amazing start to a series and I can’t wait for the next installment.
