My first Book-Review: Age Of Azmoq: The Valantian Imperium by Rajamayyoor Sharma
The first glimpse:
The Book “ Age Of Azmoq” is a story of an imaginative world narrated in a so real manner that you feel every line turning into picture. Brilliant author Rajamayyoor Sharman has taken quite a different take casting the characters. The picturesque beauty of the village, the characters of villagers, the celestial weapons. And most importantly the war sequence which I felt as if I have been to Mahabharata and someone narrating the war sequence like sanjay used to speak to dhritrashtra. Every chapter was described as one moment of the story in detail.
Look of the cover page:
Author has given lot of thoughts while creating the cover page; the texture is a matt texture, with lot of colors like a painting ,The circular towns over the hills looks so celestial and feels like a discovered town after excavating the hills. The feel when you the touch the book is cold and smooth that it attracted me immediately as I received.
About the Author: written on the book
Rajamayyoor Sharma is a first-time author, who as far away from the writing world before this book series took hold in his mind. He is a management consultant, with a degree in engineering from BITS Pilani and an MBA from IIM Bangalore in India. He currently lives in Bangalore with wife, son and parents. He loves to spend his spare time reading anything with a story, watching movies with his wife and playing games with his son.
The story in crisp words: Age of Azmoq
Villasbora, a village created by author is a world to its own people. They are isolated from real world and have no connection with outer world. The village is beautiful than imagination but villagers don’t consider it as beautiful as they don’t know the dirty outside world. They are busy in their own work; no one speaks to each other unless they have some work. The village never saw any outsider who can describe this beauty to them until an old man comes to their village. The beauty is so well protected and everyone has lived up to 130-140 years. And at 60-70 they considered themselves as young.
The village has deep buried reserve of Azmoq metal that has celestial and super natural powers can control and conquer anything .this metal which is much coveted to transform into weapons and moulded into any powerful things as it has those myriad powers. The war takes place across 5 continents and 7 oceans’ just to get control over this Azmoq reserve so that they can conquer higher seats of this imaginary world. The whole story revolves around mind reading and weapons and how the village was discovered in search of Azmoc. Valantian Imperium, a group of powerful people guard and also controlling the revolutions across the world to protect their power and to set the balance in the fantasy land.
Story takes you to mythological era and the sometimes to natural beauty of the village and make your brain imagine so many pictures and also improving the vocabulary. The mid part of the book becomes more interesting when the search for Azmoq starts
: The book is too long and it takes at least 7 days to finish reading. Some chapters were not really needed where the author describes about mind reading in details and also describing the beauty of village again and again. Some weapons were beyond my imagination. Since the book is fiction genre anything is possible.
Overall the book is really good when you have love for fiction but becomes too lenghty at times but scenes which you have read takes back to book to read more and more. A true reader reads till the end. The book had everything from fantasy to wars and beauty to discovery, author tried to cover so much in one book and part 1 has lead me to wait and read the second book too.
