Hemant (shoOOonya), " I would personally recommend this novel. I liked it and I think you might like it too"

Romila Chitturi says , "I like fast thrillers and this book suited my types. I liked the twists & turns in the plot, the author has managed to make me read the whole book. Not at all a boring read. I liked the way the author made the story flow from past to present and vice versa. And the maps which were featured in the book added to the historical value. Simple language was used which made it easy read without much complications. I liked the story more when Gaurav gets a new project at Hampi and he & Natasha find cravings in an underground room of a temple, which makes the story more interesting."

"Brilliant and captivating are the two words which fit perfectly well for the story. The history mingled with fiction makes it an absolute treat for the readers. The mysteries, historical relevance's, modern day approach and curiosity of the characters makes the story all the more exciting and spiced up. There's not a single dull moment in the back. It's thrilling narration and pacy outlook makes it a lovely dose for the readers. There's hardly any time to catch the breath in this story. The mesmerizing details laden with historical references are the perfect flavor of the book. "

Midwest Book Review recommends The Himalayan Revelation

The Himalayan Revelation blends mystery and romance with international intrigue; but most of all, it adds the backdrop of Hampi, a UNESCO World Heritage site and capital of the Vijayanagar Empire which was plundered centuries earlier, and which holds a secret buried deep in the Himalayas.

Protagonists Gaurav and Natasha uncover the presence of the secret but must embark on a dangerous expedition to unravel its truths; an...d as facts from the past merge with international concerns of the present, tensions run high.

One thing to note about The Himalayan Revelation is that past and present are closely linked and take the form of alternating chapters that move neatly between past and present events. In some novels this format simply doesn't work, but in The Himalayan Revelation chapters are clearly marked and leave no room for doubt or confusion on the reader's part.

Descriptions of place are also vivid and realistic and provide a wonderful sense not just of place, but of culture: "Amidst the towering snow-capped peaks of desert Himalayas which seemed to be tugging at the helms of the clear blue sky, was cradled a beautiful wooden building in traditional architecture resplendent with Ladakhi motifs and colors. Numerous brightly colored prayer flags were performing a ballet in the bright sunlight as frigid wind blew across."

There are also maps and black and white illustrations accompanying discussions of the Vijayanagar Empire (which is actually a controversial topic in South Indian history.) Rich historical references move beyond casual scene creation to provide readers with complete background relating the region's interactions and culture. These elements are yet another reason for choosing The Himalayan Revelation: no light read, it's actually a rich blend of fiction and fact that will delight readers who seek more complexity from their thrillers.

Clues, puzzles, and inquiries surround translated texts, hidden meanings, and a mysterious Chinese character that translates to 'treasure' - and involves more than a handful of protagonists in a growing search.

While at times it's difficult to separate the well-researched facts from fiction, at all times the novel is compelling and well detailed in its descriptions of history and regional politics: "From the time man learnt the art of shipping and maritime trade, Indian Ocean routes have acted as lifelines. From the ancient silk & spice trade to the modern hydrocarbon fuel trade, the Indian Ocean and its ports have always acquired a vital position in every country's naval strategy. In recent times, China's ambitious growth plans led to formulation and fantastic execution of a superb strategy - the String of Pearls."

Any who seek a complex, detailed thriller based on actual historical fact and not just a light read of espionage and intrigue will find The Himalayan Revelation to be an excellent choice.
