MY REVIEW: The author Shilpa Jain provided me with a copy of her book in exchange for an honest review.
The story is not a run of the mill romance, instead it has a great many intriguing elements: kidnapping, reincarnation, a lost treasure and a hunt for that treasure.
Shiv Sanyal is a talented sculptor and the son of a business tycoon Saurabh Sanyal. Shiv has a loyal friend in Arjun and another in Saloni. Unfortunately, Arjun is in love with Saloni while Saloni harbours feelings for Shiv. However, Shiv only sees a friend in Saloni.
In the middle of this love triangle, Shiv sees a mysterious masked woman at his birthday bash. He feels immediately drawn to her and it inspires him to create a magnificent sculpture.
At Shiv’s exhibition, it is pointed out to him by an art critic that his sculpture is a remake of a sculpture of Khajuraho. Shiv, who has never visited that place, decides to go to Khajuraho to see the sculptures for himself.
In Khajuraho, while sleeping, Shiv is taken back in time to the 11th century, and the story of his past life is revealed. Rudra and Mohini’s love story ends tragically resulting in their deaths. Coming back to the present day, Shiv meets his reincarnated love Nysa but immediately they are all put in danger.
I cannot reveal too much about the book without giving away the plot but Shiv, Nysa, Arjun and Saloni embark on a hunt for lost treasure. Will they be able to outwit the villain or will their present lives have the same sad end as their past lives? The reader needs to read the book to find out.
I recommend this book to readers as a thrilling action packed love story.
