Price: Rs195
Rating : 4 /5

Written in moderate English, a fantasy fiction ‘Princess of Falcons is quite interesting and hard-to-put-down read. Although ‘Princes Of Falcons’ is the first part of trilogy but it stands alone as a novel. However the story line of book is based on various love relationships but this book is more than a love story. The story includes three love stories, romance, tension, suspense, depiction of now a day’s hostel and college life, contains several humorous scenes, tribal life, a fierce battle, touch of supernatural elements coupled with inspirational dialogues and seven original poems related to situation.

Himani, in her own poetic style, dedicates this book to her parents in a very sad note, indicating towards pain and problems in her life. Though the book is merely a work of fiction and has nothing to do with her personal life. The author Himani Vashishta seems to be inspired by “Harry Potter” and “Twilight” series.

It is a story of a girl name ‘Silviya’ living in present society in India; story of her love, her origin, her supernatural powers, her destiny, her debt of birth.

The initial pages of the book are set up in Ajmer- Rajasthan. Silviya a very beautiful and a brave girl has lost her family in a car accident in US. She only has her grandmother to call of her own and her best friend Veer. Silviya often finds herself unexpectedly confronted with difficult questions about herself due to her horrible dreams.

The fun part starts in the story when Silviya goes to Bangalore for doing her MBA degree. Within a few days she makes a lot of friends there and falls in love with her classmate Manav. The fun part of hostel and college life has potential to throw the readers into the pills of laughter. Life is going great for Silviya until she finds some hue of her origin. She was born amid of bloodshed and violence in an obscure tribe of North America. Her grandmother Trisha who was an Indian took her to India for safety and solace and shattered all relationship with past.

Forced to pick up the pieces and deal with her past, Silviya embarks on a journey to an obscure region Bangolarrea with her friends where she was born; to find truth and her identity. The path to the answers they seek-and have sought for all their lives-is one that takes them entered into dangerous water.The Falcon tribe in which Silviya is born is threatened by Nāga tribe. She will be there to witness and participate in the final battle and kill Python!The presence of a young warrior Ralf in her tribe and the future forecasts prompts her to rethink whether it is better to forget or to rehabilitate in India with Manav or whether to live in the past or destroy it once and for all.

This book has allowed the author to explore not only the heightened supernatural powers gained through animals and birds, but given  the opportunity to encounter unique worlds and shape a story that encompasses those unusual settings and multicultural theme.

It will appeal to mainstream fantasy readers, supernatural power seeker enthusiasts, passionate romantics, as well as those who enjoy a good story, a good laugh, a few tears, and a happy ending.

Unique Factor– The names of persons and places Himani have chosen is according to their character and situation.
