I wasn't quite sure that I would complete reading this book so soon considering its length. I am amazed at the speed at which I completed reading this amazing book. The Lost Arcanum is as interesting as it's blurb. The cover gives a kick to your reading buds. It has been designed well.
I wouldn't go much into the details of the story. (I don't want my review to be a spoiler). The plot has been crafted well. The amazing characterization and lucid language makes this book an interesting read. The author has presented the book in an appreciable manner. The chapter ends with a twist and you will read it further to know more about it. Thus, you're hooked on to the book. The author keeps the mystery and suspense alive at the turn of each page. It is a perfect page-turner.
I would love to see this book converted into a movie. It has it all.
I rate this book with 4/5 stars.
