5.0 out of 5 stars My First Mythological thriller.It was the best experience ever. A MUST READ.
Reviewed in India 🇮🇳 on 23 October 2017
Yada yada hi dharmasya glanirbhavati bharata
Abhythanamadharmasya tadatmanam srijamyaham

Paritranaya sadhunang vinashay cha dushkritam
Dharmasangsthapanarthay sambhabami yuge yuge

Meaning of the above Verse from Bhagavad Gita.

Whenever there is decay of righteousness, O Bharata,
And there is exaltation of unrighteousness, then I Myself come forth ;
For the protection of the good, for the destruction of evil-doers,
For the sake of firmly establishing righteousness, I am born from age to age.

I was always an AmarChitra katha fan right from my childhood days and remember reading about the 10 avatars of Lord Vishnu but had only got a brief glimpse of Kalki Avatar for obvious reasons that it will happen in the future.

But that curiosity always was there within me to get a glimpse of how things would be then.

Thanks to Kevin he really gave us a terrific glimpse of it, though fictious.

My first mythological thriller and it was the best experience ever.

I have decided to complete this trilogy first and then move on to other mythological thrillers but this was the best book and will be the best series I would have read so far in the time to come.

The book opens with a Prologue showing Kalki Hari - an avatar of Lord Vishnu sitting in front of a Vishnu statue (somewere in the north) seeking his blessings before he begins his mission starting his journey on the wonderful white horse Devadatta with his ever loving faithful parrot Shuko , his divine sword Ratnamaru as he sets out to destroy Adharma which is the ultimate purpose of his birth
The prologue page starts to create a certain curiosity in the minds of the readers regarding what happens next and that continues throughout till the end of the book.

One of the highlights of this book is that Kevin has researched about the characters very well to bring out the story’s flow in an excellent manner which makes you seem that the story is realistic though it is a fictious one.

A reader is just able to literally visualise and imagine all events and you just can’t stop turning the pages till the end.

Book starts and gives an introduction of Kalki’s nemesis Kali who is on the verge of capturing a Kingdom which are his small steps to accomplish his ultimate desire/goal of position and power.

As the story progresses the lives of Kalki and Kali are narrated parallely regarding the challenges they personally encounter in their respective lives.
The author gradually introduces us to Kalki’s village Shambhala which is known for it’s good and righteousness, family of Kalki, his parents and sibling, Arjan apart from the love of his life, Lakshmi ,his loyal friend Bala and his mentor Kripa apart from Padma and Ratri who gradually help him overcome all his personal adversities.

The personal tragedies faced by a naive Kalki , all these experiences/trances are described very well showing a glimpse of his previous forms or avatars which keep reminding him the ultimate purpose of his life.

His guide Kripa as shown in this book keeps insisting to start a journey towards the north in order to meet Lord Bhargav Ram who would prepare him before he actually takes up the ultimate mission in his life to destroy Kali and the prevailing Adharma.

Later, we also get a glimpse of major characters in Kali’s life such as his sister Durukti and her hand-maiden Symrin, his loyal brother sister duo generals Koko and Vikoko.

Both the characters Kali and Kalki are equally strong and have their own set of challenges before they set out towards their respective goals.
Overall the book is divided into 2 major parts Battle of Shambhala and Rise of Kali .The tittle parts are completely justified once the reader starts going through the story.

Some of the major highlight sequences in the book.

1. Revelation by Kalki’s mentor Kripa about the purpose of his birth.
2. Trances that Kalki experiences from his previous forms(avatars) convincing him about his ultimate goal in life.
3. A blind sooth sayer predicting Kali’s nemesis who would be as strong as him but will be the greatest opponent ever faced.
4. Battle of Shambhala which shows certain glimpses of an untrained Kalki taking on his opponents.
5. First face to face Meeting of Kali and Kalki at the city of Indragarh.
6. Escape plan of Kalki from Kali’s control.
7. The different tribes and their uniqueness are beautifully described by Kevin in the end.

Above all the best things that stands out in the book are certain quotes excellently written by Kevin which are so thoughtful just loved them very much(don’t want to reveal all that here which might spoil curiosity of the first time readers).

The language is simple and clearly explained and I happened to learn some new words too.
The book stops at such a juncture only to generate suspense and huge amount of curiosity which makes the reader feel “how I wished that the book still continued”.
In the end book also gives a summary about the next part Satya Yoddha Kalki – The Eye of Brahma.
Eagerly waiting for Kevin to release the next part – please don’t delay or postpone it.
There is no portion in the book where you get bored.
Excellent read overall.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the thickest yet the best books that I have ever read
Reviewed in India 🇮🇳 on 8 November 2017
Before I share the review of this book, let me first tell you the reason of picking up this one. Though I love peace but I secretly feel that I am a warrior. I had been fascinated by swords since I was a kid. Till today, I never miss a chance of touching a sword or posing with it (if possible) whenever I get to see one. The sword in the cover of this book caught all my attention and I finally decided to read this one. Glad I picked this up and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it.

The next thing that impressed me was the map in the front. It gave me an experience of time travel. As the note states, this book is not a historical or modern re-adaptation of the Kalki Purana. I was scared at first seeing the number of the pages of the book; it is the thickest book that I have read till now. The sword on the cover made the warrior inside me to take this challenge and it was worth it. Even if you do not like history or mythology, you will like this book because of its amazing narration.

Coming to the characterisation, all the characters have been beautifully portrayed in the book. Be careful, you might get lost in the story. The protagonist is Kalki Hari, an ordinary village boy who is not as ordinary as he is assumed. He is the chosen one by destiny who leaves his tiny village to fight for the protection of his dear ones and his land. He has been bestowed with some super powers that had been sleeping in him and which awake when it is time for him to fight for the good cause. The other characters are Kali, Shuko, Kripacharya, Durukti, Arjan, Bala, Vedanta and many others who have been perfectly fit in various places to let the story proceed smoothly and in an interesting way.

This book is basically about the fight for good cause. When you are chosen by destiny for something, no matter what happens, you will excel in it. A simple man can turn into a warrior while a bad man can turn good. There are things that are beyond our control and we must dare not mess with them. Yes this is a fictional story but the narration made me totally lose myself in the book and assume everything happening for real. I also appreciate the selection of words by the author. The words had been impactful and made me feel reading the story in a historic background.

What particularly impressed me were some lines from the book! They are real in every sense. Some of them are:-
• “Surely the Gods didn’t send him for me” (pg. 77) - Think about this in the present scenario (You might replace Him with Her). So it is the most practical line in the times when someone leaves your life. You need not be upset, rather need to move on.
• “Kalki had been always the more adventurous and stronger one, unlike Arjan, who took steps only after thinking hard.” (pg. 96) – I could connect with this line. I felt that I am like warrior Kalki as I am adventurous and strong.
• “This is not what I expected.” (pg. 120) – The most realistic line about life because life is contrary to our expectations most of the times.
• “Cowards give up after a defeat. But those who get up after the defeat are the real winners.” (pg. 258) – This is the line that can keep you motivated in your low times.
• “I need to use my weakness as my strength.” (pg. 389) – This is the line that everyone should stick to their minds if they want to succeed; probably it is one of the keys to the doors of success.
Though these lines have been used in a different sense in the story but this fiction story is close to reality because of such powerful lines. Kalki is the ‘Dharmayoddha’ and will fight to let the good prevail. The story is all about that and is full of a variety of emotions. The editorial errors can be ignored because the story is worth it.
