Book Review - Chronicles of Kali - The Secret Book Of Asurs by Prithvi Raj Banerjee

Initially when Vishnu introduced me to this book I wasn't sure about reading "Chronicles of Kali - The Secret Book Of Asurs" by Prithvi Raj Banerjee by judging it from the cover. I'm glad I have read this book. I guess the quote "Don't judge a book by its cover" is indeed true, especially for this book.

At first, I expected this book to have a story of goddess Kali in a comic version with some modern twist but when I started reading it I realized it's not that at all like my assumption. 

This is a story about kali who was found near the river Ganga by the sage Vyas. Her mother lost her by the river and saved by floating raft. She had supernatural power where she could talk with animals and plants. She was trained from the childhood to defeat Asurs. Asurs, on the other hand, had a book which had the teaching of how to keep human in their mental chatter and destroy the earth in the process. Kali and her team were the only ones who could destroy the book and defeat the Asurs. Will she able to accomplish her mission? Read the book to know more.

I love the plot of this book. I think this book has captured so many aspects multiple genres like thriller, mythology, psychology, fantasy. It also has a social message of human destroying nature. There were so many examples to make us understand mind chatter and how to free ourselves from it which I loved the most, The storytelling was awesome it keeps you on the edge till the end. The book of Asurs at the end was also a nice touch.

I have no complaints about this book, it had made me see the concept of goddess Kali in a different way, a satisfying read I must say. Ratings:
