Dark Knight


Once his nation's most beloved Prince and famed General, Aaryan Singh Shekhawat now lives in disgrace, accused of treason and murder in a world where honour is everything. Driven by hate, Aaryan thirsts for revenge and retribution from those who wronged him. When he crosses paths with the sweet but feisty Siya Udawat, a princess from an allied house, both of their worlds are thrown into turmoil.

A chain of events is set in motion which pits them against numerous foes, some known and others yet to be discovered. As Aaryan and Siya encounter unexpected challenges and unearth secrets from Aaryan's past that threaten to destroy his future, their journey is changed irrevocably in this story spanning across the grandeur of the Rajputana courts to war-torn lands overrun by enemies.

Dark Knight is a tale of passion and promise following soul mates who find each other in the unlikeliest of circumstances and must discover what their love means to them. The story contains elements of action and suspense which will have readers hooked until the final page.

The entire plot of this book is so intriguing. Have read few earlier chapters of the book on wattpad and I am eagerly waiting to read the entire book and to have this amazing adventure to be part of my book collection.

I have read few chapters of this story initially in Wattpad but reading it all in a go, a Kindle version was a different feel altogether.An absolutely engaging read which makes you travel with characters, feel and love them. Aaryan and Siya come across as strong characters yet very human and flawed which makes them stand out.

The best part is, the plot takes its own sweet time to develop with supporting characters and subplots fitting in slowly...It's no way hurried and the pace is very well balanced.It doesn't leave you with a dull moment.

Don't be surprised if you fall in love with one or two supportive characters and start rooting for them.

The flowy language, crisp narration holds the tale together until the very end.The romance between leads is very subtle and beautifully portrayed which leaves a warm feeling but there are moments which set fire too.

Overall a great read ..And I am looking forward to more books from this author

A prince and once-famous general disgraced by accusations of treason and murder. A beautiful princess whose sheltered life suddenly gets entangled in lies, deceit, and a prince’s quest for vengeance. Villains out to ensure they do not get to live another day. Wrongs that need to be set right. A love that is unanticipated, and born at a most inopportune time.

Interesting plot. Strong, dependable, and well-suited hero and heroine. Scenic description of places and events. Neat and clear writing.

Then comes the very syrupy delivery of romantic lines, periodic mentions of the protagonists’ strikingly flawless attributes, the glaring use of deus ex machina plot device in a scene or two, the hero’s pigheadedness and the heroine’s nauseating crying outbursts... even a love affair that could’ve been realized early on had the protagonists been of a mind to effectively communicate with each other.

Such banalities in any romance story--in whatever genre or form--are usually often enough to spoil my reading pleasure and rouse the cringe person in me. But this book has kept me awake even in the wee hours of the morning, charmed by its story and totally accepting of the protagonists’ cheesy moments and dramatic turn of events.

One word to describe this novel, and in Filipino: kilig.

Well, where do I start, thankyou to Shutti Trividi for giving me the pleasure of your storytelling. I sat down yesterday afternoon with cup of tea, a cake and a copy of Dark Knight. I fully intended to sit for a hour at most, but then the hour went into 2 and continued till 3.00am! This romantic novel has twists and turns where you don't expect them. I'm not going to go into detail for fear of ruining the ending, things really don't go how you expect . If you like a good old fashioned romance that is set in another time and culture where the rules are normally set in stone ,this is a novel worth reading. I'm hoping that the wait isn't too long before we have another novel released from this author.
