    The Mute Anklet sets a new rhythm in historic mystery romance fiction

    Is it a love story with a mystery woven in or is it a mystery novel with a strong romance flowing through it?
    I like to think of it as a mystery wrapped in a romance. If you have read 'The Mute Anklet' by Radhika Nathan, you will know what I mean.

    Doesnt the title point to a mystery? Why would an anklet be mute? An interesting title, isn't it? And the story that follows doesn't let us down. It has a very surprising and pulse racing beginning.. the mysterious stranger at the smithy, foll...

    The mumurs of the "mute" anklet

    The author keeps the reader engaged with vivid descriptions and interesting facts from history.

At points it was predictable and at some others there were interesting...

    "The anklet was thick,stiff and made of iron..." the very first words of this novel is a promise for an intriguing story.

    From the landscapes to the food, South India is depicted beautifully!
    Great read!

    Good read...

    From the very start, we have a suspenseful novel and rather deliciously the suspense is kept till the very end. The author - Radhika - has an interesting style which captures a lot of the flavour of those times and yet keeps the reader on edge - wondering where the story will take him or her. Without doubt, the author's imagination takes us to those forts, the battle field and equally to the lovely conversations between the important characters in the plot. Uma, the heroine, is of course such...
