Book review :
The last Avatar starts on a dull note, but it picks up rapidly and engages the reader in the book.
Vishwas had designed his protagonist character in a very interesting manner. The protagonist character has many layers in it and it will easily grab the readers attention and the readers will enjoy reading about this character.
Some beautiful points from the book.
-The creation of vanara Sena in a scientific way.
-NEEL AND Nausheen chapters.
-The relationship between Neel and his grandpa Ramsey.
-Unexpected camo appearance of a legend in the last chapter of the book.
Aaand lets talk about our hero Kalki a god-like figure who wants to protect mother earth from the evil, thing about creating such characters is that they are not relatable at all protagonist doesn't have any single flaw in him almost like god hence not relatable
technological knowledge of the author is really good dare I say everything related to technology was on point as a cs engineering student I liked most of it, this book has potential but so not looking forward to next installments
Coming to the story. The story revolves around the protagonist Neel who is also known as Kalki. He heads the Astra Group which manufactures some out of the world technological equipment which were way ahead of his period. He was also known to have mastered so many arts which makes him near invincible. This is proved when he gets captured by the Chinese Intelligence Agency wherein despite of being tortured for weeks and being injected with truth serum, he never utters a word. He also seems to have recovered three times faster than a normal human being when he was being hit.
Is he the reincarnation of Lord Vishnu?
The author has touched upon geo-political situation and has introduced a terrifying character called Master Zar who runs the terror outfit called Invisible Hand and has weaved a story as to how it join hands with few others to bring the world to their knees.
There was another major incident which happens in India where the entire Parliament gets blown up which kills all the MP's in one go including the Prime Minister and Ajay Pradhan becomes the Head of Indian High Command(IHC) which along with Army General and Head of Navy and Air Force along with the IAS officers starts administering the Country.
General Jian revolts against his father Wang and leads a coup to capture the power. He wanted to capture Shen and Nushen who were known as Homo Supernus who is believed to have some super powers.
Were they Humans or Aliens?
Then there was this secret place called Shambala which is believed to be protecting the scriptures of God which were safe guarded by Rudras.
The story revolves around various places and characters and there was a flashback for Neel which was not a good one to recall/remember for him.
What I liked the most are the final two chapters.
Yes. Neel challenges the mighty Chinese Army all by himself in the border and when India was about to surrender its border, something unexpected happens.
What was it?
The climax (which isn't the end of the novel) is surreal and it would make anyone who reads it to wait eagerly for the release of the sequel. I am no exception.
It was almost like watching a movie, with every reaction, every movement, being mentioned in the book and yet not being overdone.
The most important factor while writing fantasy fiction is to provide each character with a back story that does not raise questions, rather gives the answers.
The Last Avatar excelled at it, providing not only a detailed but also reasonable explanations that did not seem like being pitched out of the blue. The story behind the Rudras, the Scripture of Gods and the power they manifested, were fictionally acceptable. The theory behind the Vanaroids, the futuristic drones, the martial arts, etc, were scientifically satisfying as well.
