    This one is for the Twilight fan who longed for the same kind of action with a desi twist.Fast paced and action packed, the Gandharva is a thrilling ride of a read with characters that are far from paper thin.If you have a taste for mythology, drama and really good writing, this one is for you.I can t wait for the next series as I really want to read them all before Bollywood snaps up the books to make them into movies.
