Neither have I not read the first part of the Trilogy, nor I knew about the plot. One of my Friend asked me to read this Novel and I thought to myself without reading the first part, how would I be able to understand the plot of the Novel. But when I read this novel, I must mention the author just swept me off my feet.
The cover is very impressive with a princess with some warriors in the background. It gives an image like a Battle field and also gives a hint that the plot must be somewhere related to history. The title is very eye catchy with readers. Even I wanted to know the real meaning of ANAHATA. I googled it. As per Google, Anahata (or heart chakra) is the fourth primary chakra, according to Hindu Yogic, Shakta and Buddhist Tantric traditions. In Sanskrit, anahata means “unhurt, unstruck, and unbeaten”.
The story begins after Divya rejects Suraj’s proposal which breaks his heart. But the Fortune plans a different scene in which Suraj leaves for Himalaya because of his work assignments . But the things he encounter there shakes him completely. The subtitle ‘ love conquers all’ gives a slight information about the plot of the story aswell.
Does the concept of rebirth and incarnation exit ?
Do people take rebirth to fulfill the incomplete wishes of the previous birth ?
Is our past powerful enough to interfere with the happenings of future ?
Do grab this awesome read to unveil the mystery .
The story unfolds in two parts of past and present. The novel is a perfect blend and the smooth flow between the two which is really worth appreciating. There were no loop holes that gave a smooth ride through all the chapters. The final union of two different time zones gives a very unexpected and amazing climax to the story.
The characters are very well defined and the reader can very well relate to most of them.
My Ratings: ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
It is a perfect recipe with balanced ingredients of love, friendship, history and rage. If you like to read romance with mystery, then this one is must read.
I would love to read her work in Future. Looking forward to her Next Novel. And I hope She publish it soon.
