🦁THE MAHAAVATAR TRIOLOGY
Book 1 NARASIMHA
Acc.to the author, this book was all about building up the scene, re-imagining the 4th avatar of Lord Vishnu.
BOOK 2 HIRANYAKASHAP
It carries the characters & their lives forward & injects extreme pace into the story.
Recommendation: Read Book 1.
Book 2 can be read as a STANDALONE too, though it took me sometime to get around the storyline.
The author has provided a SUMMARY of Book 1, for better understanding.
The book begins with an introduction to the TRIBES; the Devas, Asuras, Danavs, Simhas..
Followed by a summary- the story so far..
And a prologue..
Finally we get 53 chapters of non-stop action‼️
And yes, we get a map too!
Do you like reading Mytho- fiction❓
Can we avoid our destiny❓
💕I have always found Mythology very enchanting..
What do you feel abt it❓
This book is about;
* the revenge of HIRANYAKASHAP, who is one of the descendants from Brahma & heir to the invincible armour.
Will he be able to undergo the 3 trials of Brahma & defeat the Devas❓
* of HOLIKA, who again wants revenge, but from her own nephew, Prahlad, younger son of Hiranyakashap.
Will she be successful ❓
* of a Simha, a NARASIMHA, who wants to avoid his destiny until he finally realises, the hard way, that he cannot evade it.
Will he readily accept his destiny❓
* This book IS ALL ABOUT EMOTIONS I feel- love, fraternal, parental, greed for power, ego, fulfillment of duties & responsibilities, loss, revenge & being in tandem & accepting your destiny.
The book ends on a cliffhanger, an open ending giving way to BOOK 3 of the trilogy, PRAHLAD.
I relished it & devoured it in a single sitting ‼️( I haven't read book 1 though) & will collect & follow the series NOW‼️
