My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Although I bought this book many months back, but didn’t read it. But when I started it, I simply couldn’t stop reading and imagining the adventure. Its simply AMAZING!!! Just like the first book THE MAHABHARATA SECRET, the story of the book is gripping, giving you the thrill of experiencing a lifetime adventure of stumbling upon ancient knowledge and treasure of Mahabharata times and chased by death and torture licking your heels at every step. This book explores Alexander’s campaign to Indus Valley and his secret mission in disguise of conquering more of the unconquered and mysteriously powerful land beyond Persia. In parts, especially present times of chasing terrorists with intention of spreading bio-terrorism worldwide and subsequent revelation of the real intentions of the order, I did felt some parts were stretched more than necessary, for eg., the explanations regarding retro viruses, DNA replication etc. But the scientific angle explained regarding the myth of Samudramanthan or Churning of the Ocean of Milk was very intriguing.
Unlike the first book, this book ends in a cliff-hanger. Eagerly awaiting for the next book in the series.
