Book Review

The Krishna Key – Giveaway Contest

I just came to know from Ashwin Sreekumar Nair who heads marketing for MySmartPrice.com that the site  is currently running a competition for the promotion of Ashwin Sanghi’s latest book The Krishna Key.

About the book: (I am quoting from Ashwin’s (Sanghi not Sreekumar) website:

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. In modern times, a poor little rich boy grows up believing that he is that final avatar. Only, he is a serial killer.

In this heart-stopping tale, the arrival of a murderer who executes his gruesome and brilliantly thought-out schemes in the name of God is the first clue to a sinister conspiracy to expose an ancient secret—Krishna’s priceless legacy to mankind.

Historian Ravi Mohan Saini must breathlessly dash from the submerged remains of Dwarka and the mysterious lingam of Somnath to the icy heights of Mount Kailash, in a quest to discover the cryptic location of Krishna’s most prized possession. From the sand-washed ruins of Kalibangan to a Vrindavan temple destroyed by Aurangzeb, Saini must also delve into antiquity to prevent a gross miscarriage of justice.

Intriguing eh?  The book is available to preorder.

I am totally impressed with the video trailer of the book – it is beautifully done. Take a look at it  – and enjoy!

Now I am all “key” ed up – pun intended – and I am waiting to receive this book so I can read and review it here.

You can win signed copies too by visiting the MySmartPrice Krishna Key Giveaway Contest 

Entering is easy. All you have to do is finish the sentence ” I want to read The Krishna Key because …. ” in the comment section on that page.

10 Lucky winners will get free Author signed copes of The Krishna Key. 

Contest ends on 20th August. 

So hurry.

A word (or 50) about Ashwin Sanghi alias Shawn Haigins

He is the bestselling author of The Rozabal Line and Chanakya’s Chant, and now, brings you yet another exhaustively researched whopper of a plot in The Krishna Key while providing an incredible alternative explanation of the Vedic Age that will be relished by conspiracy buffs and thriller addicts alike.

Disclosure:  
No compensation was received for this post. I am promoting the contest because – well – I am nice like that. I was browsing YouTube for a song and found it – and was about to “skip the ad” before the song, when the music grabbed my attention. I thought hey what’s this? And it was the ad for The Krishna Key by Ashwin Sanghi. I thought, wow, wouldn’t I love to read that book! A few minutes later, Ashwin (Sreekumar not Sanghi) from MySmartPrice told me they’re having a contest. Was the Universe listening or not?

I am hoping Ashwin (Sreekumar not Sanghi) will want to send me a review copy of the book – keeping those digits crossed!) Why? Well, why not?

Have a super weekend folks! See ya on Monday. I am taking a digital holiday tomorrow! (And yes, I’ll take your breath away with my Sunday post on Monday. Because Unknown Mami – who motivates me – is nice like that!)
Thank you for subscribing to my blog! Do consider leaving a comment – or just reply to this email! I’d love to know what you think.

Cheers!

    I’ll be curious when you review the book! Looks interesting. It reminds me that this is the Kaliyuga, the dregs of time, which I am familiar with from Buddhism. I didn’t realize it’s a belief in Hinduism too. Interesting!

      Sandra, I am waiting for the book which is/should be on its way to me.

      According to the Dashavataar (ten incarnations of Vishnu), the last one is pre-ordained to be “Kalki” who will save us from Kaliyuga. 🙂 We also believe we know where Kalki will be born.

      It is a fascinating story. Thank you for coming by!

      Well, they claim it is some place in North India called Sambhala which, some people believe to be in Andhra Pradesh and some elsewhere. 🙂 The Kalki Purana talks about this. No secret. 😀

    This looks great! I love your book reviews. I want to read this book because it reminds me of the style of book I love, just like the D’Vincci code.

    Thanks for the review Vidya!
