Publisher's Summary

In 334 BC Alexander the Great begins his conquest of the Persian Empire. But his plans for everlasting glory do not end there, and the young king marches towards the Ends of the Earth - the lands of the Indus - on a secret quest. It will lead him to an ancient secret concealed in the myths of the Mahabharata - a secret that is powerful enough to transform him into a god.

Present day. In Greece the ancient tomb of a queen is discovered, a tomb that has been an enigma for over 2,000 years.

In New Delhi, the Intelligence Bureau discovers unexplained corpses in a hidden lab. Vijay Singh and his friends, now members of an elite task force, are sucked into a struggle with a powerful and ruthless enemy. In a deadly race against time, they will need to solve a riddle from antiquity that will lead them to encounter shocking secrets from the past - secrets that will reveal mystifying links between ancient history, the Mahabharata and the ancient enemy with diabolical plans for a future that will hold the world to ransom.

The Quest has just begun...

After The Mahabharata Secret, Christopher C Doyle yet again explores the science behind the enduring mythology of the Mahabharata and brings it alive in a contemporary setting. The result is a gripping story that will keep you hooked right until the last minute.

Mediocre

Very good in parts, very boring at other points especially when dealing with technicalities, the author completely loses control over the storyline. The worst part is it still continues without ending. The performance was however flawless for which it deserves full marks. In one line - will I like to read/hear the next part? An emphatic NO!

Atrocity of a narration!

I cringed every time the narrator read the word Mahabharata or tried to read in a "Indian" accent. The story itself is OK. A bit too much of unrealistic series of coincidences but not too bad to pass time.

Lethargic, Patchy and Boring

Story was elongated, Patchy with extremely bad narrative as compared to the other stories. Further parts needs to be simple in narrative and enthrilling

Decent Story. Narrative was not so good

The story was decent though felt the first book (the Mahabharata Secret) was better. Narrative was decent for most parts but Hindi words had such a strong western accent that sometimes did not understand some words. But the worst part was the accent used for the Indian characters. Felt at times it just went a bit overboard...

A decent fiction but a very bad Indian accent

the story keeps you engaged and it's a decent fiction, but the pronunciation in the Indian accent is terrible, especially the word "Mahabharata" considering it forms the Crux of the story.

Great story, full of intrigue.

Really enjoyed it. A lot of poetic licence but a nice introduction to Indian mythology. Have to read the sequel!
