The Himalayan Revelation is a work of fiction but developed using genuine facts from history and modern times. It is a gripping tale of mystery, adventure, romance and international intrigue.
Today Hampi is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. But around 450 years back, this capital of the magnificent Vijayanagar Empire was brutally plundered and devastated. But before it happened, its masters hid a secret. Centuries later, a young couple chance upon an object that holds a secret much more than Hampi had hidden, in a place 2000 miles far north of Hampi - the Himalayas. The Himalayas have something to tell and when they do - two nations become so desperate to get it that they are ready to go to any lengths, even global annihilation.

Brilliant and captivating are the two words which fit perfectly well for the story. The history mingled with fiction makes it an absolute treat for the readers. The mysteries, historical relevance's, modern day approach and curiosity of the characters makes the story all the more exciting and spiced up. There's not a single dull moment in the back. It's thrilling narration and pacy outlook makes it a lovely dose for the readers. There's hardly any time to catch the breath in this story. The mesmerizing details laden with historical references are the perfect flavor of the book.
The downside of the book is that the romance angle could have been kept to a minimum. It didn't suit the story. Also Vijayanagar empire's relevance towards the second half drops down a bit which should have been maintained equally like the other relevant things in the plot.
Overall it's an excellent book in the making for the readers. The fluidity and the detailed narrative and the thrilling action all along makes it a perfect read for the readers. It's a book which can sweep readers off it's feet anytime as there is everything like drama, mystery, history, action, thrills which makes the mood of the readers.
