The story of a manuscript

When he finally meets the most inspiring luminary of humankind, it takes him a while to recognise the master...
History is filled with terrors, both real and imagined, that create the tantalizing genre of historical thrillers. While I love modern thrillers, there is something about a historical one, grounded in a bit of both truth and myth, that makes it reads all the more bone-chilling. Like the Radiant Sun: A Novel by Anu Kay is one of those amazing historical thriller flushed with great research about ancient art of Marma Kala which will keep you on the edge-of-your-seat historical thriller that will keep you turning the pages until the very end. Science of Marma was shrouded in mystery for a long time, as it was taught only to certain people; to prevent its misuse. Author Anu Kay has done an amazing piece of research on this subject which makes this book even more unique.
There are certain books which has a voice of its own. Voice in the sense that the emotions portrayed are so vivid as if at some places you feel that it’s your own thoughts which are being echoed in the book. Like the Radiant Sun: A Novel is one of those books. The story weaving in and out of fact and fiction.
It is a good book, with a fresh perspective. All I can say is Kudos to the author and all book lovers please grab your copy of the finest book ever written on the concept of the ancient art of Marma Kala.
