I eagerly look forward to the next books in the trilogy. I have no doubt the book will get rave critical acclaim, now I hope it also does well commercially. I am convinced this trilogy deserves its place among the other famous trilogies in the market, and if I may borrow a few characters out of the book - Shukracharya's bones and Mother Oracle's elements are telling me we have a blockbuster in the offing:-)
Lets start with the Cover Page - A very beautifully designed cover showcasing dagger with a shiny liquid in between the hilt .Simply superb .As the book is all about guarding Halahala so the shiny liquid is of course the halahala .
Now Another design that's on beginning of every new chapter of the book is of Sun Crest which is also vey beautifully designed .
And now the writting . As one can expect from the author of THE KARACHI DECEPTION , the plot is MIND BLOWING . Have read many other fictions before related to hindu mythology but this one is something very different . Once a samll portion is used from mythology otherwise the whole story is generated by authors mind . I say 1 : 99 I.e 1 % from mythology & 99% is author's fantasy and brainy thoughts :)
Coming to the plot ......
Honour , Friendship & Respect are the major keywords to be used to descibe whole story beside it Arrogance , Greed , Politics , betrayal and evil is also there .Book is veey high oaced & gripping that I finished the book in just 2 days .
With the first page itself I felt so attached to the book and with turning leaf to leaf evens unfold in very nice manner .
As the name suggest THE GUARDIANS OF HALAHALA , the plot is all about saving Halahala , Posion chuned from white lake by devas and asuras and swallowed by shiva , from both devas and asuras . One day the omniscient shiva came to Samrat of Sindhuvarta & gave him dagger that contains halahala to potect it from both asuras and devas .So the Samrat and his council of 9 are designated as the Guardians of Halahala . As both asuras and devas get tonknow that halahala is in possesion of Human king Vikramaditya , both launch an assault on the kingdom to retieve the halahala but failed badly . Devas led by Indira first send Ashvini brothers and then Maruts but both lost their assault against King & Asuras led by Shankracharya send an army of Pisachas under andaka but they also aren't able to put hand over halahala .One interesting thing that I loved is that even the book is written about very old era but the auhor has used very modern words to describe each and every incident .
Author has done a magnificent job by giving an index of Major Characters in the begining of the book & Glossory of Indian terms at end .
in short I sa its a MUST READ thriller and as its a Triology so many unanswered questions still left and expected to be answered in IInd and third part .
This work is so differently refreshing from our modern day writers, who just penn anything under the sun and that too without following the structure of a story. Here, we have a storyteller, whose genius has truly come before you, provoking your benign thought to marvel at his work on every page. He takes you to a journey, never traversed by you. His characters moves in front of your eyes, in their flesh and blood, as if they will pop out and start talking to you. HIs scenes from history dances right before you.
Truly a masterpiece by a master crafter! This is the one book, all of you should read during the weekend. It'll give you immense pleasure and an utmost satisfaction that a storyteller from India has matched more than any contemporary Western Country's storytellers.
I'd be just dying to lay my hands on its sequel. Mr. Author, please come quickly else I'll join Hunas or Sakas Sena.

But few pages in the book are missing and repetitive.
