1700 BCE, Harappa - Harappa is a magnificent city on the banks of the mighty Saraswati river. The darkness of treachery, taantric exorcism and bloodshed unleashes itself on the last devta, paving the way for his devastating revenge...and the horrifying truth behind the fall of the glorious civilisation.

extremely average

the book is extremely average. the storyline lacks any nuance and the author is not at all convincing of his theories. it's like Chetan Bhagat writing the Meluha series
