Book Review: Ahriman

Ahriman: The Spirit of DestructionAhriman: The Spirit of Destruction by Puja Guha
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Petra retired from being an Agency field agent years ago and vowed never to return after the experiences she had. But she may be the only one who can take down the Ahriman, an assassin named after the Persian god of destruction. Will she risk her life and sanity to go back, or will she walk away from the Agency and risk the blood of thousands of innocents?

Ahriman is a thriller, criss crossing the globe to track down a killer. While I loved the plot, the structure of the book was a little clunky, jumping back and forth in time a little too much and trying a little too hard to establish a somewhat predictable secret. I think it probably needed to be edited a little more thoroughly. I did like that it was still followable, because there weren’t too many characters or needlessly complicated twists. As the first of a series, though, it does a great job establishing a character with a complicated and conflicted past. I look forward to seeing where life takes Petra and if she can conquer her demons.
