Cover Review:

The cover is dark and mysterious, reflecting the story pretty well. 

Book Review:

Chakravyuh is the story of a cave puzzle that the main character and his family need to solve in order to escape. 

The storyline is pretty good, well thought out and adventurous. The characters are many, but they lack individual personalities. 

The one thing that needs improvement is the grammar. Mainly, there were two things that bothered me. First was that though the story is in first person point of view, parts of it were written in third person point of view. And it would have worked if the writing hadn't implied that the same character was narrating those parts too. And then there was the changing tenses. The text kept switching between past and present tense, which was really irritating. 

So though Chakravyuh was an adventurous, exciting read, it could definitely get better with much needed improvements.
