MY REVIEW: I was provided with a copy of the book by the author in exchange for an honest review.

The story is set in the future. Kali-Yuga is over and now Swarnim-Yuga is going on. Earth is now known as Bhoomi and there are only a couple of small sea-locked continents on Earth known as Jambhu-Dweep and Purva-Dweep.

The hero of our story is Krishna, the genius who has developed Bhoomidium, the compound that has transformed the Modern Man into a new race, the Manavas. The Manavas do not age and have superior brains than the modern man.

Krishna is faced with a dual problem. On one hand the supply of Bhoomidium is eroding and Bhoomi is soon going to be destroyed. He is trying to find another planet which will be hospitable to the Manavas. On the other hand, there is a saboteur at work who is trying to ensure that Krishna’s plans do not succeed. Krishna still pines for his lost love Radhika.

The author has thrown in a lot of mythological references in the story to Lord Krishna as well as the Mahabharata war.

Will Krishna succeed in his mission to save the race of the Manavas? The reader needs to read the book to find that out.

The author has ended the story on an intriguing note which leaves the reader awaiting the sequel!

I recommend this book to readers as fairly engaging and interesting.

I am a voracious reader and am always in the middle of a book. I am also obsessed with coffee, makeup, skincare and fitness, though not necessarily in that order!
