About The Author: Born and brought up in Mumbai, Vikrant Utekar has an immense love for books for as long as he can remember. After completing his MBA in Financial Planning, he left a stable job at a finance firm in order to pursue his passion for writing and his dream to be a writer. It was the fact that his family comes from a long line of Shiva devotees and his own struggle to understand who and what does he pray to that led to the foundation of the idea for The Shivaputra Chronicles.
Kaliyuga! The time when it is said God has given up on man! Or has He? For if not, Chandrashekhar Kashyap would not exist. Blessed by the Devas, he and his friends are the last line of defense between mythology and reality. Join Chandrashekhar, the Shivaputra, as he comes to terms with his own capability and fights the greatest evil ever to have risen against the world!
Review: First look of the cover design and the Blurb will surely attract users to pick the book. The cover has all the elements to fight with with the evil which is the highlight of the book. The book is a mixture of Mythology and Fiction which appears to the readers as real which is a very interesting plot for a debut Author. The main character is shivputra carries the gift of Lord Shiva and Shakti. There are Six people, which are chosen heroes called Devputras to fight the evil of the world. As a reader, I just loved reading this tale. There were so many characters, but Author had defined it properly and readers didn’t get confused at all. The book had so many adventures and twists and turn which makes it an interesting read. It is a small book and one can read it in one go. There are several elements in the book which makes the reader to keep on guessing the true identity of the Devputras. The narration is so commendable that I appreciate the Author for writing this book. Moreover, I appreciate “The Book Bakers marketing Initiative” to encourage me to read this book. Although the characters were fictional, but with the element of Mythology it appeared to us so real that one can easily connect with it. Vikrant had done a commendable job and I would be waiting to read sequel of the book. I will surely recommend people to read this book. Good luck Vikrant J
