The characters of Dwaraka Shastri, Vidyut and other lead characters are perfectly set for the climax. The story is gripping and is quick in narrating each and every detail of the events and incidents that take place throughout this book. The secret of the black temple is revealed in an orderly manner which keeps the reader turning pages eagerly to find out the secret which lies within the pages of Kashi. Vineet successfully blends in the facts of past historic events to the premise of the book making it an interesting read throughout and the epilogue is a thing not to be missed. The author drops enough hints in the book for his upcoming books with few untold stories and unexplained characters that appear in Kashi: The Secret of the Black Temple.
To summarise the review, Kashi is a brilliant book and a must read for readers who love mythology-fantasy-thriller genre as the book is fast paced and definitely a thrilling experience and on a rating scale it would be 4.5/5.

When I finished reading his previous books, I was always left with more excitement which made me to look on for the next release and this excitement got suppressed only with this book since I hope this would be the end of the long journey but you never know, he may come up with one or even two more novels(as a sequel).
The novel begins with a short introduction of its prequel(the previous 2 books). I loved the usage of most appropriate pictures in the beginning of each chapter. As you know the story is about the clash between Devtas and Demons.
Vidyut was not aware as to how his father Kartikeya Shastri died. He was also not convinced about getting others killed and wasn't aware of the reason of his birth. However when he meets the Mathadeesh Dwarka Shastri, he understands the purpose of his life/birth and also learns about his great lineage who were half human and half GOD.
The secret Brotherhood or the Order which was controlled by three powerful men including Frank from Stonefellar family wanted to capture the secret of the Black Temple at any cost since it would very much challenge their very existence. They send Maschera to Kashi where the last of the known Black Temple was believed to be in existence.
On the other hand, Satyavrata Manu(dated back to BCE period) faces a near extinction challenge from the ruthless cannibal leader Nara Munda. He loses most of his men including Somdutt who has been regarded by him as equivalent as his father. He then remembers the special conch givn to him by none other than Matsya.
Did he invoke Matsya?
Could he overcome the challenge posedd by Nara Munda against Manu's Ark which carried the last hopes of the existence of Mankind during the Great Pralay?
On the other hand, during the present era, Vidyut faces the litmus test of taking the mighty Maschera one on one.
Where is this Black Temple located?
What secret did it guard?
Did Vidyut get to know about the secret?
Read this thriller which is as good as any hollywood movie out there because despite its bulky volume, I could not take my eyes off the novel and I completed reading all the 400+ pages in one go which shows how compelling and captivating, this novel is....
