Book : Narasimha : The Mahaavatar Trilogy
Author: Kevin Missal
Narasimha, once a brave soldier, has left the war and lies low as a physician in a village. But a familiar face from his past seeks his help to stop the tyranny of the blind usurper Andhaka. If Narasimha refuses, the world might just end. What will he do? And why did he leave the war in the first place? Prahlad, the interim king of Kashyapuri, is torn between the ideals of his unrighteous father and his love for Lord Vishnu. Whom will he choose? Hiranyakashyap, the ruler of the Asura Empire, wants to avenge the death of his wife. To do that, he must go through the Trials and get the ultimate weapon – the Brahmastra. But the Trials have sent so many others to their death. Can Hiranyakashyap survive? Welcome to the reimagining of the fourth Avatar of Lord Vishnu by bestselling author Kevin Missal.
To begin with the cover is so awesome. The graphic and the art created is so aesthetic. The colour combination is so attractive. Overall this cover makes a complete justice to the book.
The concept of the book is great. The story revolves around Narasimha, who was once a brave soldier and Prahalad, the prince of Asuras.. The storyline is fast paced and the language is easy. From the first chapter itself this story has the grasp and that makes it very interesting. I loved the plot, the twists and turns are totally unpredictable. The ending was unbelievable. I can’t wait to read its next part.
Overall if you love mythological fiction, then this book is a must read.
