It starts off with the death of Professor Haridas and his colleague at the hands of The Invisible Hand who are after the Scripture of Gods. Just as the villains manage to get their hands on it, they are confronted by the mighty futuristic Vanaroid who arrives just in time to take charge of the situation.
Meanwhile, the man known as Kalki, the valiant Indian Crusader is missing in action. Rumor has it that he has been kidnapped by the Invisible Hand, the militant outfit out to prove their supremacy and bring the entire world down rendering it to slavery. Needless to say, there is chaos, doubt, and panic throughout; especially when General Jian, the rogue son of the Chinese President Wang proves their superior nuclear and defense technology in the most unbelievable manner.
President Wang sends his biggest asset Nushen, their superhuman spy on a mission to meet Kalki and handle the situation before Jian wrecks more havoc. Soon Nushen and Kalki are involved in a cat and mouse game escaping from the vicious General Jian who has taken control of the Country with the help of Zar, head of the Invisible Hand.
General Jian and the Invisible Hand spread devastation setting off bombs throughout the world. Getting their minions in place, they work towards ushering in Militancy and Dictatorship beginning with their friendly and not so friendly neighbors- Pakistan and India.
Just when all seems lost, Kalki ventures forth from a deserted village in Ladakh standing tall with the National flag against the Chinese Army and the Invisible Hand. Does this lone vigilante survive their vicious attack or does he succumb to pain and eventual death? Read and find out for yourself.

This is another one in the growing mythological mysteries which seem to be ever popular these days. Simply written with a bit of back and forth regarding the back stories of Neel aka Kalki and NuShen- one of the Homo Supernus.
Overall I found it pretty interesting and really looking forward to reading the following books in the series.
My Rating: 4/5 stars
