The author has not done proper research, or has deliberately misled the readers. For example, Shambala is supposed to be the kingdom where spiritually advanced people live, but the author has depicted them to be illiterate and cowardly villagers. One part which angered me was his writing where he insults our ancient Gurus (Acharyas) and Gurukuls by writing that they taught for a few coins, and making fun that they were taught under trees! The ancient Gurukuls were holy places where the highest teachings were given to the students for their spiritual advancement and to achieve the highest goal.
He is trying to cash in on the Indian mythological fiction genre which has been trending by great books such as the Shiva Trilogy, Vikramaditya Veergatha etc. My request to the author is, please don't denigrate India's rich culture and history, please write some other fiction if money is the only thing you're looking for. There are many ways to make money and please don't poison young minds with your misinformed knowledge and misguided information. Sorry if I sound rude, but I've frankly written what I felt. I spent 2 days to read the book and was utterly disappointed, a waste of time.
For the readers, please read other authors such as Amish Tripathi and Shatrujeet Nath, and other Indian authors who are doing a great job.
For starters, the book is not at all gripping enough. I barely got the interest to continue reading. There is no proper setting of characters and their way of life. The story meanders here and there and we start to ponder about where the story is going towards. Even with some action sequences in between, the book did not create the urge to continue further. At one point, I was so fed up that I started reading another book while I was in the middle of reading this book. Then came back to finish reading the remaining pages, that too just for the sake of adding a book to my list of completed books.
For those expecting a mythological fiction story with a gripping storyline and/or a page-turner, do not read this book ever!
About the story itself, the characters were not described to an extent that will let you picturise them. Same with all the scenes. I was not able to picturise any of them. The main characters Kali and Kalki lacked the screen space. Too many characters who come and go and we're very difficult to keep a track of.
Although I have purchased the second book on the series, I don't think I will be reading it any time soon. 😭
Also one more thing it is really difficult to when two characters are conversing because the author adds a paragraph in between depicting their expressions and the next line, you won't understand who is the character that spoke.
You can try this book but i am not sure if you will enjoy.
