Story: 4/5
Overall :


“You have to dethrone a powerful man to become the most powerful. I was itching to defeat the single most powerful person, but there wasn’t any. I was left with only one choice — to create one.”

Little does Ashwin Jamwal know that the last twenty-five years of his life have been controlled by a master manipulator, who wanted to make him the most powerful man on earth, though for a reason! Ashwin steps up to take oath as the youngest Prime Minister of India and is unknowingly thrown into a vortex of power and authority as the entire world is threatened by a faceless enemy — Hades.

The world starts to look up to Ashwin as the savior, but he was just a pawn, reared only to be sacrificed in the end.

A story of greed, lies, deceptions, manipulations and corruption, Ashvamedha is a thriller revolving around the infamous game of power in a maddening bid to seek absolute control.


Political thrillers are rare in Indian writing and that’s why Ashvamedha coming from a debutant was actually a shocker from Srishti Publishers. First of all I want to thank Srishti Publishers for delivering such a wide range of genres every month. They actually know how to find gems in crystals.

Before picking up the book by Aparna Sinha, I already had great hopes from the book as it is now a new sensational talk among reviewers. Praises from each and every reviewer is a rare thing to watch. The book starts with a great pace and never lets you down. The ‘thrill’ section never goes down and that’s what make the reader glued to the book.

Story revolves round the protagonist, Ashwin Jamwal and is knitted beautifully. Author has done commendable job in making the whole story realistic enough. All the characters, their relationships, everything is done in a perfect manner and never felt as a burden over the story. Before reading the book, I had a notion that the blurb is too revealing but after reading the book, I can comment that the blurb is good enough to go for. Cover is another interesting feature of the book; well thought.

Overall, Ashvamedha is a book to go for without any doubt. It is a kind of feast for all the thriller lovers out there.

Thanksgiving from Team TAB

Hello friends!

We here at TAB are motivated and full of energy and the credit goes to… of course, all you people out there. We are coming up with more and more sections and continuously trying to improve the blog.

The month of January was a blast. It was the most successful month for our blog so far. We came up with the “BOOK REVIEW” and the “INTERVIEW” sections. They are receiving wonderful feedback so far. Again, thanks to you people.

We have interviewed 7 people so far(both authors and bloggers). It’s amazing to know people for who they are and what they represent through their blog or book.

The Book reviewing section is blast. We have received more than 10 books this month, both from publishers and authors directly. And yes we are busy reading ’em. But don’t worry, team TAB will work night and day to come up with honest and rational reviews. A great thanks to all the publishers and authors for believing in us. We won’t disappoint anyone.
