Book Review: The Revenge of Kaivalya
Title: The Revenge of Kaivalya Author: Sumana Khan Publisher: Westland Ltd ISBN: 978-93-83260-28-7 Number of Pages: 385 Price [INR] : 350 Genre: Fiction
Engrossing. Gripping. Terrifying.

more than 10 characters, it is indeed an achievement on Ms Khan’s part! Overall
the story moves at a good pace – hardly bringing any boring moments.
