When an antique artefact is stolen from National Museum, Delhi, a reckless and stubborn police officer ACP Aryan is placed at the helm of the case. Uncovering each layer of the truth, Aryan discovers that the people on the hunt for the artifact are the descendants of those who are found only in the scriptures of Indian mythology – The Asuras.
From the gateway of Lord Vishnu – Haridwar to God’s own country – Kerala, from fiery pursuits to narrow escapes, the mystery of the artefacts draws Aryan into a lethal maze of vengeance, betrayal and dreadful secrets. With time slipping out of hands like sand, Aryan must unravel the secret motive of his adversaries. Else, this story of Good vs Ancient evil might not end with the victory of Good.
Goddess Danu –
• ancient Irish triple goddess who is considered the Great Mother of Ireland.
• Mother of the Tuatha Dé Danann, the “People of the Goddess Danu”.
• Goddess of wind, rivers, water, fertility, wisdom, plenty and more.
The bestest part of this book is the Mythology. I am a big fan of mythology and am always looking for books based on different mythologies but they are really hard to find. This book is filled with various mythological concepts and beliefs. The author’s research and hard work seems evident. Another attractive aspect is the scientific description of mythological beliefs. They are so logically explained that I was like “Oh! Now it seems realistic!” Apart from that the adventure the book provides to one is immense. The character ACP Aryan is a man of his words and is very passionate about his duty. India could do some good with such a police officer. The story begins with certain brutal incidents that show that humans are no better than Asuras. Though just a book, it points out the bitter truth of human beings, how we make ourselves demons even though we are so-called the children of God.
The story is fast pacing leaving no space for feeling bored. The only times I kept the book down were when I had to sleep, eat, study and go to college. And the other times I found myself deep into the book.
What if you suddenly find out that Asuras, Danavas really exist? What if you realize you have been betrayed for which you have to pay the high price yourself? What if you see you dear and near ones going far away from you? What if there be anyone else or not yet you wish to stand tall by the truth? What if…………
Why don’t you just read the book? I would hate to give away spoilers and burn out the interest of all who are looking forward to read this book. If you love Mythology, Action, Thrill & Adventure with a pinch of Romance as well but have not added this book to your tbr list, I suggest you better add it and believe me you won’t ever regret.
