don't remember the last time I read a book that to ally blew me off Hats off to the writer's imagination and creativity to have dug up a co existing world right underneath our noses and to have served it in just the perfect manner to us the readers'Nine' is a mysterious tale of a hidden society found by an ancient Indian king that since then has been thriving in the middle of civilization helping humanity to survive and prosper The society is run by nine protectors knowledge folks and is guided by monksspiritual guides to build the Buddhist connect with Asoka I have surmisedOur story starts with three newbies Akash Zubin and Tara from different cultures and careers in the 'nine' taking up the positions of three who have 'passed away' And of course then there is the 'knowledge holder' Lise who is actually my fav character The threat is from an ancient evil spirit who has gathered an army of 'kala yogis' to dismember the nine and discover three ratnas hidden by them gain knowledge hidden in there and thus rule the world Typical fantasy plot but the way it is written and the philosophical bits and pieces made me enjoy the book During our author interaction week I got a chance to interview Shobha Nihlani Though during that time she didn't have any recent book release she participated in the event looking at our enthusiasm She also rewarded us with a complete set of Nine trilogy A series which was part of our wishlist for than two years I would like to apologize to Shobha for delaying review of this wonderful book seriesThe trilogy is based on mytho historical fiction about Nine treasured knowledgeable scientists After the great war of Kalinga Ashoka left violence and started following Buddhism Though he left violence scars of the great war were serious A loyal Kalingan took auth to destroy Mauryan dynasty and its knowledge This loyal Kalingan spirit is our main antagonist The first part of the trilogy Curse of Kalingan is beginning of dark forces stronghold over the worldThis Kalingan spirit entered into the body of dying Vayu Apart from the antagonist our protagonists are obviously Nine scientists in current time keeper of ancient powerful knowledge Each keeper holds specific area of science and special power of the area Vayu was able to track and kill three of these scientists and now he is after new recruits To know you have to read the bookI hope I haven't given any secrets The book is written in a proper flow and with good conceptualization A comparable work with famous books in this genre The flow of the story is medium paced which has bound me to the last page Use of historical and mythological facts was proper Book would be a great read for Mytho Historical Fantasy lover Superpower Heroes Genre Readers Fan of thriller and action bookThe only reason for 40 days to finish this book is other paid projects and new location job Otherwise one can devour this 380 pages book in 3 4 sittings Surely recommendable work Detailed Review Link Interview Link I wonder why I kept delaying reading this book for uite some time now making it seem like one of the books that I bought just for the cover Turns out my erroneous judgement by the cover went boom boom doom doom Nine Curse of the Kalingan is a gripping spiritual cum mythological fantasy ride that will never lose the grip on the reader Researched in depth solid characterization and wide plot that works better for books in series My favourite character out of all was Vayu even though he plays the negative part Hope the writer shows us some varied shades of him in the next series He is too perfect to be true right now but nevertheless I liked the character and the book Amazing story Five stars of course When I glanced at the publisher of this book I was taken aback Penguin under their Metro reads imprint have always gone for the usual love stories fast paced youth based kind of titles but NINE Curse of the Kalingan written by the pretty Shobha Nihalini was indeed a welcome change considering the kind of books they have been coming out with since the past few years I had stopped reading any Penguin Metro Reads books and this one came along in my hand I took this up with some scepticism but whatever doubts I had soon disappeared as I immersed myself in the breath taking journey of three people Akash Tara and Zubin members of a secret club called NINE that was formed eons ago for the safety of mankind I didn't kind of take a fancy to Vayu the evil guy who wants to dominate the worldThe three protagonists are novices and their journey doesn't just talk about their powers but also their self and spiritual growth The deep rooted wisdom of Buddhism is spread across the pages The book is pretty catchy and fast paced I would love to read the next part and hope it releases soon A must read for fantasy and spiritual fiction lovers
