Book Review: Call me Saaya by Zoe M


Shamsher Singh Rathore has it all. A job he loves and a life he lives every moment. Until an untimely call from home embroils him with a woman called Saaya who proceeds to turn his orderly world upside down!

The only interest Sayana Singh Rajput had in him was the prized Sheesh Haveli. She had never believed in love until destiny threw her this impossible challenge.

What do you do when all that you believed in turns out to be a lie?

Will Shamsher be able to save his world?

Will Sayana believe in love or will she allow avarice ruin it all?

What about Saaya?

What happens when desire meets destiny?

Set in idyllic Rajasthan, Call me Saaya is the story of two souls in pursuit for true love while destiny has other plans for them.

The Cover is beautifully designed. It has an image of a collage with some Butterflies and different types of leaves. It could have been better and more meaningful.

The title is eye catching. I don’t want to play a spoilsport, by letting you know what meant what.

The story is about Shamsher Singh Rathore who visits a Haveli in Rajasthan and meets Sayani (aka Saaya). The story unfolds beautifully, and they start falling for each other. The story is based in Rajasthan and Bangalore.

The plot was well written, and descriptively emphasized to provide the reader a unique experience. The story has all the elements, to provide the reader a whirlpool of emotions throughout the journey.

And what kept me interested from putting down the book was the surprise element. The twists and turns were totally unpredictable.

The characterization is done with a great clarity. All characters were justified and given importance as per their role in the plot. The language used in the book is lucid and easy to understand and connect with the readers.

Overall, Call me Saaya is an good example of how a newcomer should attempt his first book. Looking forward to read more from the author in the future.
