About the Book:-
The Flames of Anahata is the second book of the Comeback Warrior Trilogy and even though I haven’t read the first book of the trilogy, this book was still a good read.
This book is a mixture of Thriller, Romance, and Mystery.
The title of the book:-
Anahata means, the heart chakra is situated in the center of the chest at the height of the thymus gland (behind the sternum). In Sanskrit this chakra is called Anahata, meaning ‘infinite’ or ‘boundless’. The heart chakra is related to being able to love yourself. Being able to give and receive (love) with equal ease.
REVIEW OF THE BOOK-
the story started with Suraj Sena, Director of an Ad agency. Diya and Varun are his friends and they both work in the same company. If you found your friends with the same organization then workload seems less than working with others. Suraj and Diya are more than good friends but neither Diya nor Suraj confesses their love to each other. One fine day it was raining and he feels that it’s the time to confess his love towards her and in the main road kneel on his knee Suraj proposed Diya.But fate has something planned for him and Diya rejected the proposal and Suraj heart broken. He fully broke from inside and neglect office work as well as friend circle. After few days of interval, Varun came to know his situation and found him fully broken in his sorrow. Varun convinced him to come to the office and avoid Diya. He does the same and this activity of him hurts diya a lot but he never utters words with her. Time passes and they went to Himalaya foot area for an Ad shooting. Here the twist waiting for Suraj. He visits a cave nearby the Himalaya Mountains, Where he founds some mystical incident. He found a dairy where history is written off two empires Shaktipur and Amritpur. Both are an enemy to each other and one lead character name came “Indrajith”, army chief of Shaktipur. How he became the army chief from an ordinary person you will find when you go through the book. He was fall in love with Rajkumari “Deepali. In between his step brother Varsha fall in love with the princess. Time passes and Deepali came closer to Indrajith and both loved each other more than anything in the world. On the other hand, the Dark Army prepares to attack Shaktipur on the guidance of Bakula, a handicapped person who controls Evil powers. In all these Shaktipur believes in spiritual power to enhance their power and lifestyle of their people, on the other hand, Amritpur believes in Science and technology. In all these the story is going on. Did Indrajith able to succeed in his love, what happens that all incidents went history. What about Suraj, Did Diya and Suraj able to success in their love. What is man paribartan astra? Did the evil power able to grab the astra and what are the consequences come if they get it? This entire puzzle lies beneath the book. In my personal opinion, the avid reader should go through the book once.
Love conquers the body by embracing it,
conquers the mind by massaging it,
conquers the heart by kissing it,
and conquers the soul by marrying it.
