Dharmayoddha Kalki: Avatar Of Vishnu
by Kevin Missal
You know you have read a good Mythology Fiction when multiple twist and turns don’t distort the story of the book, but instead gives the story a gripping edge.
I didn’t set any expectations for this book before I opened the first page. Nope, Mostly because I didn’t want to be disappointed at all. Also, because I had read so many Books on Kalki, that the charm of reading yet another Kalki book wore off. However, I didn’t expect this book to be this good. I loved this book, in fact, I dreamt, I talked and I devoured the whole book in no time. It’s probably due to the story which turned to be the complete opposite of what I was expecting it to be or because the storyline and the characters were simply mind numbing.

“Dharmayoddha Kalki” is the story of Lord Govind Avatar – Kalki, one of the most written Characters of 2018 or so I think. Author Kevin has used his magical brush to repaint the Book 1 of Kalki Saga. This book is not a retelling of Mythology but a totally imaginary world woven around Kalki by the Author Kevin.
The book has 3 ‘E’ factors in it, Engaging-Enthralling-Entertaining, A potent mixture for a bestseller. The book is almost 400 pages but the narration is so smooth, that you don’t even realize when the beginning turned to the end.
This was indeed an irresistible read. I swam through the pages, enjoying the various shades of waves coming at me. It wasn’t that it was suspenseful or anything, the book was so engrossing, it just fell like sand through your fingers without you really noticing. It did get a bit heavy in the middle, but probably appropriately so, given events. That was the only time it dragged a little.
What I loved most about the characters was their personality each with their different unique shade, yet they blended smoothly onto the canvas. Transformation of Kali from the savior to the Mad Man destroyer was amazing. The only thing I didn’t like was that Author killing my favorite characters. I’m still reeling from the death!!!
Was the climax good? Oh yes, it was. The climax totally justified the whole story of Book 1 and in the process paving the way for Book 2.
It’s definitely a recommended read for all the Mythology Fans and also Fantasy fiction lovers. It’s truly an amazingly written book with an essence of history into it. Couldn’t wait for book 2 to release soon enough.
I give it 4.5/5 stars
