If Narasimha refuses, the world might just end. What will he do? And why did he leave the war in the first place?

Hiranyakashyap, the ruler of the Asura Empire, wants to avenge the death of his wife. To do that, he must go through the Trials and get the ultimate weapon – the Brahmastra. But the Trials have sent so many others to their death. Can Hiranyakashyap survive? Welcome to the reimagining of the fourth Avatar of Lord Vishnu by bestselling author Kevin Missal.


Narasimha by Kevin Missal is a captivating mythological fiction.

The plot is an unique one, as it is completely different from what I expected it to be from the title and Blurb.
This story has various point of views about its characters and their characteristics.

Narration is good along with lucid language and usage of common and modern words makes it smooth read for all readers.

Characters are very well developed and this is the most positive point of this novel, it has emotions, betrayal, love, revenge and almost every possible thing in it.

I would also appreciate the research work done to write this story and making it relatable to the present day scenario.

Though the story is bit predictable for those who know about it from early on but it still holds you back to your seat till the last page.

The cover is an attractive one as it really captures your mind to read it in a go, so all the mythology fiction lovers can surely go for it.


I will rate it ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Thanks to writers melon for the review copy in exchange of honest review.
