Swati Kaushik, a widow and a woman who can do anything for success, must team up with Iravan to stop the God of Death and Justice.

REVIEW- YAMA is the crime thriller novel by author Kevin Missal and is enthralling story.

Book Title and Cover- Book Cover is beautiful. I loved the use of black and red colour to signify Yama. Book title is interestingly confusing in positive way. Overall Book Title and Cover are catchy and demands the attention of reader.

Language- Language is lucid. Font used for chapters is too cursive. Narration of the book is commendable and hooks the reader with the story.

Storyline and Plot- Storyline and plot is beautifully planned. Twists and turns in the book makes it un-put-downable. There were minor loopholes with the storyline but does not affect the suspense and mystery. Characters were justified properly.

Story is fast paced in some and slow paced in some chapters. Typing mistakes should be considered in 2nd edition of the book.


Book Cover and Title- 3/5
Language- 4/5
Storyline and Plot- 3.5/5

Overall rating- 3.5/5
