Avishi by Saiswaroopa Iyer
A brilliant follow up to ‘Abhaya.’ Crisp characters. The author has a way with words but it is the choice of stories and the way it is etched out with so much thought and precision that gets the reader. Sai’s books mingle history, storytelling and mythology wonderfully. Avishi will stay with me for a long time, perhaps for one or two rereads.
