Book: Divyastra

Author: Nimish Tanna

Thousands of years ago, Indian Yogis possessed the knowledge to obtain the weapons of the gods. However, this knowledge could only be transferred from a Guru to his disciple by word of mouth. In today’s world, one mystic, who calls himself Guruji, still possesses this knowledge and is using it to empower an innocent person’s life. Only, this empowerment could be a deception and the innocent person is a thirteen year old boy with a stutter… In this intertwining tale, an ambitious yet unsuccessful Shankar, in search of his identity, is manipulated to embark on a never-told-before fantasy tale; only to rediscover the father he never knew and unmask the mystical Guruji. Amidst this confounding concoction of ancient myths, deluding personas and dispersed emotions, will Shankar ever be able to separate fact from fiction and find his true identity?

To begin with, the cover is just so attractive. It showcases the concept very nicely. The use of swords and eyes makes it mysterious and quite unique.
The storyline is awesome. It keeps you engaged and curious about what will happen next. Easy language and grasping storyline makes it a page-turner. The story is a complete and beautiful blend of mystery, science and historical fiction. Very well narrated and with very interesting storyline this book has become one of my favourites.
If you love mythological fiction or thrillers, then this book surely a must read.
