It is the journey of Prince William and Princess Sara, the protagonists,through the magical and spiritual worlds of Pantolis, Hiblisk, and Ikra. As their voyage unfolds, they realize the true motive behind the terror employed by the dark forces of Dushtt to claim supremacy over the lands of Pantolis and beyond. Every new revelation brings to light the methodical madness employed by the dark forces and secrets of Mother Nature, which have been safely guarded for ages by the various civilizations of the secret worlds.

Their journey also introduces them to the divine forces that monitor the functions of the world and gives them access to legendary, mystical weapons and advanced spiritual knowledge which illuminates the flow of their understanding and actions towards various aspects of life. They use the knowledge gained, to try and bring peace, to their war ravaged lands and fight the ever-growing might and influence of the mysterious dark forces that haunt their kingdoms. Will the light of all that is divine, fighting under the banner of Prince William and Princess Sara, flicker away into oblivion against the might of the dark forces under Dushtt, or will they survive? ……..Only time in her womb holds the answer, potent enough to change the outlook of the very world we live in

‘Age of Hiblisk- A story with a soul’ Ah! Yes, this story definitely has a soul, a life of its own. Magically spun into a story is the journey of Prince William and Princess Sara.
The book is very much like those fairy tales that we grow up listening to. The balance between the good and the evil is disturbed with the evil trying to gain possession of the world. It is then that a brave lad takes up the responsibility to fight them. Everyone knows that the brave lad shall succeed and order shall be restored.
But that surely isn’t what makes the story worth your time. There is a lot of effort, thinking and creativity that has to go into it to make the story believable and not something that has just been made up.This art has been charmingly mastered by Sumukh Naik and practised vigorously throughout the tale. The imageries seemed a little filmy irrespective of the fact that they were put into words with utter finesse. The wordy sketches are fabulous giving you the complete feel of the happenings. You’re sure to get panicked, sympathize and empathize with every turn the story takes. That is what makes this book a commendable read, the very way everything known and heard of has been completely moulded into something new.
The perspective is simple and the narration creative, exceptionally creative. For me, the creativity did the trick. The simplicity of the perspective somehow disappointed me. You know simplicity is beautiful, surreal infact. But when the writing style is so glamorous, there has to be some amount of extravagance in the concept to match up, I feel.
That sort of gave me a minor glitch. Otherwise this 4 starer is complete bestseller material.
