Yama’s Lieutenant is mind-blowing Indian mythology fiction.
First of all, those who doesn’t know Indian mythology, little clarification for them- Yama is ruler of underworlds, Hades in Greek mythology. Seeing that cover above? That’s how he look in Indian mythology.
Let’s get back to story and my review.
Blurb (in my words)–
Twin brother and sister, Agni and Varuna, inseparable in childhood are now separated by death. Agni is having a hard time after his sister’s death. When he is appointed as Yama’s lieutenant, his already grief struck life become difficult with great responsibility.
Prisoners of Yama’s kingdom, hell, are escaping Yama’s stronghold, wreaking havoc all across the three realms. And a powerful necromancer is releasing the dark forces, Narakyamayas, to destroy the world.
Agni is assigned a mission by a goddess to find a person who can help in saving the world. And then there is book written by his sister on the mythical world, about Yama.
How his sister knew so much about Yama? Will Agni be able to stop the destruction in the world? Who is that person destined to be salvation of the three realm?
