Agniputr-When Agni first spoke by Vadhan

This is
Vadhan's second book I believe but the first that I have read. The story has a mystic and rustic touch to it. It has been some time since this book has been on my to-read list. Just when the book arrived in the mail, I was already starting with Ye Honey Bunch my new novel. Now that Ye Honey Bunch is almost done, I got the book out again and was certainly hooked to this one. It's an enjoyable read, especially if you like Dan Browns or  Ashwin Sanghi kind of books. It is not exactly a sci-fi or mythological fiction, but quite close to fantasy fiction. The cover design by Graficus is simply amazing.

The story goes something like this. (I am trying to be as vague as possible to avoid spoilers). There is a dark energy hidden in a village. A tantrik knows plenty about this and ties up with a power hungry politician to take advantage of the fact.

Opposing them is Raghuram Surya a  lawyer under whose property this evil is lurking. He joins forces with a paranormal researcher, Sheila.  They use ancient science to solve the mystery but have to be quicker than Kiromal, the corrupt politician.
