Son of Bhrigu (The Pataala Prophecy Book 1) Kindle Edition
Truly awesome storytelling effort by Christopher C Doyle. Writing style is clearly a big upgrade over The Mahabharat Quest series. True that the story feels inspired highly by Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings & even Star Wars to some extent... But I have no complaints!! Can't really find a single loophole in the plot. Of course, looking forward to the next book, however not ending the series in a cliffhanger is surely a conscious effort on Chris sir's part! Sir, this has the potential to make you the JK Rowling of India. Please make at least 5 books in all!! --By Unmesh Damle on 19 April 2018 --This text refers to the paperback edition.

Arjun and Maya are young adults and their parents are good friends, and so does they. They enjoyed studying in the school, where the comparatively boring topic of history was made very interesting by their history teacher Mr. Trivedi.
The things, however, are meant to be changed and in on unfortunate incident Mr. Trivedi was murdered within his home! And it turned their world upside down.
Incidentally, Mrs. Pramila Singh (Arjun’s mother), Mr. Virendra Singh (Arjun’s uncle) and Mr. Naresh Upadhyay (Maya’s father) are all good friends and they shared same relationship with Late Dhanajay Trivedi also! Unfortunately, before years, Maya has lost her mother and Arjun has lost his father! Since then the group was living in a way that they can took care of each other.
The story then moves from Delhi to Panna National Park, the Pandava Falls, the mysterious world of Gandharvas, the Gurukul ran by Sangha,… Well, it will be more interesting if you read it yourself rather we talk about it here .
Views and Reviews:
The prologue doesn't fit in the story anywhere, but it may have a relevance to the story that will be explored in the other books in this series.
The book proves to be a good overall. Since you start exploring the tale of Arjun and Maya. The mythology is weaved pretty nicely in a fictional tale. There are various incidents and sequences in the book, which will remind you of Harry Potter stories.
For any book, to become an interesting read, the story and the characters are the deciding factors. We found that both these attributes are quite strong here. The way the characters are build is really nice. Be it the friendship between Arjun and Maya or even their parents, it is explored in convincing manner. Rather than talking about feminism and women empowerment, the author infused the characteristics in the characters. And it works effectively.
There is no adult material in the book and it is the saving grace, as we see that even the popular authors tend to add steamy scenes in the books these days.
Though, it is a fantasy fiction, the author tries to make the things look logical.
Here are some of the interesting pieces of writing from the book:
It is better to serve humanity and fulfill our destinies by remaining unobserved and unknown.
Don’t forget, predictions are accurate only at the time that they are made. Even they can change over time, depending on the actions of the people involved. That is the law of Karma.
We've bought the Kindle EBook for Rs. 69; and thus it is value for money for us. We will recommend you to look for a good book deal to purchase it :)
Around 7.5 stars out of 10
Former books were more scientific and interesting specially the relation with Mahabharata, Alexander, and present time.
Let's see what comes in next books...!!

Dislike (minor): Narration is more than actual dialogues which increases the difficulty of english.
Overall, to me Christopher Doyle is the only author that write the mythological-thriller fiction that much effectively. I look forward to read the next part.
