For me, a good book is that that keeps me glued to the very last page of the book and makes me crave for more, long after reading that book. Sarang’s Inkredia is one such book.
Opening Lines: The night charged in with an army of clouds, covering the sky from this horizon to that, just as Sorcerer Klaurus had feared.

The basic idea of this book flashed in Author Sarang’s head one fine morning. And his love for writing gave us this amazing gem of a book Inkredia. He also writes TV shows script. Inkredia – Luwan of Brida is Book 1 in four-part series.
A magnificent read it is; an epic tale of love and friendship, magic and trust, a book that I am sure will set the benchmark for all the Indian fantasy novels to come. The book is set in a whole new magical world with its Ghork Riders, Monfrit, Smokeman and the mysterious Snakehead of the Tower.
The story is of Luwan the protagonist of the book and to accompany him on this adventurous ride is his sister Meg. He is a 17 year, who lives atop a hill in the village of Brida. He is a Herb Collector and tries to sell them for some badly needed money.
Brida, where sole punishment for not paying taxes is death. And unfortunately, Luwan refuses to pay tax to the cruel Tax Collector, Lord Gruwak. And thus ends his days of living in peace in Brida.
Luwan and his sister have to flee the village to save their lives from the mysterious Ghork Riders. And thus Luwan unbeknown to him sets the destiny full in motion, and their destiny, unknown to them and us, is set in stone.
As the Characters foray into the unknown land of adventures, they come in contact with many Magical beings like Ghorks (flesh-eating horses), Smokemen, Monfrits… The relationship between Luwan, Meg and Killiarn are so good!!! I so wish to see Killiarn in the future books also. The interaction between them is so fun and amazing!!! And I really loved, loved Luwan and Meg’s sibling banter.
As the story and their characters grow on you and take the stronghold of your senses, you realize that you don’t want the book to end so soon, yet you want to finish the book, just to know what happens next.
I must say Author Sarang has done a really good job of writing an epic story!. The writing is brilliant and beautiful, the story is magnificent, the magic the book has on you is so amazing and the characters are THE BEST PART OF THE BOOK.
The plot is fast-paced like the Ghorks!, and had me on the edge of my seat, throughout the book. I was excited to pick the book up each time I put it down. Though the end left me craving for more, I guess that is how books in series should end.
Do I recommend this book?
Yes! Inkredia – Luwan of Brida is truly an incredible book. You will fall in love with everything this book has to offer. Especially for the fans of Lord of the Rings, you won’t be disappointed.
