Book Summary of The Krishna Key
Five thousand years ago, there came to earth a magical being called Krishna, who brought about innumerable miracles for the good of mankind. Humanity despaired of its fate if the Blue God were to die but was reassured that he would return in a fresh avatar when needed in the eventual Dark Age—the Kaliyug.

Given the literary history of the author and his title of ‘Dan Brown of India’, my expectations from this book were high since the minute I signed up for it. This is my second book that relates itself to the great Indian Mythology, and that is a surprise in itself, because of my interest issues. But nonetheless, you haven’t lived enough until and unless you’ve explored all the flavours on life’s platter, and my taste buds are very cooperative.
Krishna Key is no doubt an intriguing read. Ahswin’s writing style will hold your interest right uptil the last page of the book, not to mention Dan Brown will always occupy one little corner of your mind, no matter how hard you try to concentrate. The way the final loose edges of the plot have been brought together into a thrilling conclusion is commendable. The amount of research that has gotten into the making of this book is worth giving a mention here. Pictures have also been provided that help the reader get a better perspective as o what all is going on.
Glimpses of a poor proof-reading can be seen in a few places if you read the book carefully. The story struggles to keep in place because these mistakes can be a big spoiler for some. Names of characters have been mixed up in a couple of places. The errors were simple and should have caught the much deserved attention of the writer’s or the publisher’s pen.
I may not give a very glowing recommendation to this book for you if you’re not a Dan Brown-thriller fan. I may as well end up calling this one as a work of fan fiction.
