Review Point : A must read Indian thriller.

Plot of the book : Two kingdoms, Chaturanga and  Sarprakt, separated by a mystic mountain range are at war with each other since ages. Chaturanga, ruled by King Viratha, is soon bestowed with a dynamic heir, and the whole kingdom is drowned in rituals and festivity. On the other side, Sarprakt is executing a cruel conspiracy. King Viratha, crippled by the conspiracy, urges the mysterious man of the mountain to devise a method to recreate the conspiracy and that gave birth to ‘The Game of Chess.’

Connoisseurs of different fields – History, Chess and the Security forces – have united as the next intended victim is the most powerful person of the country. How is chess involved in the whole scenario? How will they find a man who died 4000 years ago? Can a person defy the laws of nature? Does history repeat itself?

Spelling mistake : (ingdom, *kingdom @ Page 121)

Note (Unanswered):

The author did put two different reasons : But he didn’t clear that which one is true. And even if the theory behind ‘DNA’ is the one, then did the serial killer checked all the DNA tests?

If history repeats itself, then Viratha’s son should born again. Did he?

*** As the book is not completed and the author claimed to write it’s 2nd part, I hope I will get my answers from that one.
