Ime when she was alive and the Konark complex was under construction Two mystical love stories of the past unfold even as new romance blooms in Charles’ lifeSurreal mysterious and often bordering on the magical real this is a tale of passion that spans centuries. This book is a collection of folklores of Odisha that has been put together in form of a running novel The story illustrates the greatness of the Konark Sun Temple and the glorious past Kalinga had I do not consider this novel among the modern day writings nor is it a classic The book struggles to bring up the true emotion of each character and at the end just to make it emotional hurriedly kills few There were a lot of unnecessary emotions that I was not able to feel Being an Odiya I know what our traditions and culture are but at the same time I would be fooling myself if I consider the WEST as WASTE There were too many repetitions and contradictions to the main plot at different stages The sun temple at Konark is not just a monument that has the idols of damsels but was also known for its engineering marvel and this was not at all discussed in the story Everyone seemed to be engrossed in sculpting the beautiful idols and that’s what craftsmanship meant in this book I was a bit disappointed with the narration and could not connect to the characters I would rate it 2 ½ Stars from 5
