A fitting and a satisfying conclusion to the series, brimming with action and character intrigue that keeps the story going at a brisk pace. This is one of the best Indian mythological epic fantasy novels I've ever read, better than Amish and Anand Neelkantan in some aspects. Readers who wants a good happy ending with valiant heroes who fight for humanity, will definitely love this, especially in these hopeless times when the world needs courage in keeping the values of love and honour alive.

Having waited almost 2 years for this one, this book was highly awaited. For it is the last part of the blockbuster Vikramaditya Veergatha. The rest of the series comprise of 3 books which having read multiple times had built huge expectations. This is one of the first epic fantasy written about the legendary King Vikramaditya and his Navratnas. The Halahala, the legendary poison churned during the Samudra Manthan is handed by Shiva to Vikramaditya and his council of nine to protect from the Dev ...more

Good ending to a long awaited series. Closed many storylines quite quickly. Felt that closure could have begun in the 3rd book. Would have enabled to give a more satisfactory closure for many character arcs.

It would be a mistake to see Wrath of the Hellfires (WotH) in isolation. It is after all the last of the Vikramaditya Veergatha, a series of four books that started with 2015's The Guardians of the Halahala. Throughout the series, we see many battles fought, conspiracies hatched and foiled, friendships lost and gained. Author Shatrujeet does an excellent job, without letting the details slow down the pace of the narrative, of putting across that every action has consequences, sometimes several i ...more

Remember guys waiting for two years to find out why kattappa killed Bahubali? I had to wait for almost 3 years for the conclusion of this series. The wait was painful but now that I have read the final book in the series, it was worth it. 

Devas and Asuras continue planning and plotting to snatch the Veeshada dagger which contains Halahal. Both failed to acquire the dagger in spite of attacking Ujjayani multiple times. The Navratnas are still unaware of their full potential but they are ready to

Action Packed, Exhilarating, A thrilling ride, an epic ending
We all have heard of Vikramaditya stories in our childhood, but this epic saga is something totally different. Brilliant imagination resulting in creation of an amazing universe around the characters we have come across in different stories.
Being a fan of the series, I was eagerly waiting for the last book. Eager to know how it would all culminate amidst all the struggles, hardships and conspiracies Vikramaditya had to go through in

The EPIC series not to be missed!! The last book in the series definitely had exceeded all the expectations and worth the wait.

Special mention about the detailing in the action sequences makes you feel as if you are in the middle of the battlefield and seeing it in one's own eyes.

Author has successfully managed to make the story gripping with lots of twists and turns and makes this book unputdownable.

A must read series for everyone!!!

I don't believe I've reviewed any of the previous instalments of the Vikramaditya Veergatha (VV) in spite of having enjoyed all of the books in the series, partly because I was waiting for it to wind down before I could get my thoughts out on it, with all the cliffhangers were resolved.

Taken in total, the books are a great example of swashbuckling Indian fantastic fiction.

While Vikramaditya is familiar to most Indians from Betaal Pacheesi, a series of stories built around an ethical / moral co

The Wrath of the Hellfires is a very fitting conclusion to the Vikramaditya Veergatha series! The story takes us where Book 3 left off with everyone going in their own path. The Devas and Asuras are each planning to wreck havoc and Vikramaditya is left to take a stand and defend not only his kingdom and people, but also to fulfil his oath to protect the dagger containing the Halahala! 

This plot flows steadily, a little slower than the previous two books, but with enough speed as to keep the read

Well! It was a long waiting time to have this Vikramaditya Veergatha concluded (Courtesy Lockdown of course). But it was definitely worth the wait! This being the 4th and last book in the entirely gripping series, it never fails to astonish and surprise, at the same time keeping the reader on his/her toes as to what new thing would happen on the next page! The author with his lucid and energetic pen has done justice to the 4 book long series with a great conclusion! The ending wouldn't have been ...more

Just finished reading the book The Wrath of the Hellfires. I am a big fan of this Vikramaditya book series. And this last book of series concludes the story perfectly that started with book1. Interesting storyline with brilliant way of writing, simply awesome.

Kudos to the author Mr Shatrujeet Nath for writing such a beautiful and unique plot involving Indian mythological characters. Thank you very much Sir.

Hats off to the author for keeping the tempo of the series through the four books. A stickler to mythological stories , I must admit Shatrujeet's Vikramaditya Veergatha is one of the finest series I have come across after Meluha. All the characters are balanced and the series has a beautiful take on all the three worlds. Finished the book in a span of three days, made me lay back on my couch, satisfied, content and with a heavy heart. I would love to see more of his work in the future. Loved eve ...more

Whoa! what a ride! Read in one stretch, the author has a fantastic storyline tracking multiple characters in their adventure of rallying forces against deva and asura fighting for halahala.

Though the author steal ideas from hobbit and game of thrones, still fit good in this book.

India's own mythological thriller

This is a better story than #hobbit #games of thrones or the #xmen series. We have grown up reading Vikram betal stories but never imagined this creative twist in the tale.
Writing style is so descriptive that you end up imagining the each scene based on your own imagination and visualisation...
This more of an experiential book rather than a boring narrative... Although the end is predictable yet the climax matches up to infinity war scale in terms of visual des
