The Secret of God's Son by Usha Narayanan

The Secret of God's Son 

by Usha Narayanan

"Mythological story depicting struggle of Pradhyumna"

Pradyumna son of God Krishna is worried of the Gandhari' Curse. He Seeks help from God Shiva and gets his Trishul to bring back Vikarna from Yamloka. But Gandhari can not revert her curse; dissapointed pradyumna does not lose hope and continues struggles to decrease the effect of Gandhari' curse. And there is one powerful weapon still-the secret surrounding his origin. Will he uncover it in time to fight off the cataclysm? In the answer lies the destiny of all humanity!
Usha Narayan is back with one more mythological story after successful Pradyumna. Usha Narayanan had a successful career in advertising, radio and corporate communications before becoming a full-time writer. She is the author of several books including The Madras Mangler, a suspense thriller and Love, Lies and Layoffs, a light-hearted office romance. The Secret of God’s Son is the sequel to her bestselling book Pradyumna: Son of Krishna which was published in 2015. When she’s not juggling writing, editing and interviews, Usha reads everything from thrillers to romances, provided her cat isn’t fast asleep on her Kindle.

The book includes many small stories from the Great Epic The Mahabharata. And it is impossible to reach the level of  Rhishi Ved Vyas, the original writer of  The Mahabharata. But author has tried to put the part of the great epic in simple and novel form to readers. Pradyumna and Gandhari's curse centred story neither lose flow nor leaves the subject.

The author has successfully pictured the protagonist -Pradyumna without affecting image of other characters. Maya the wife of Pradyumna emerges as an important character in the book. Story continues smoothly, with added interesting small stories of God Krishna and God Shiva. Average reader might will have difficulty to understand few words used by the author and that may affect the interest in reading of the book. Till yet the book does not let go away the reader because of the strong plot full of twists and magics.

Cover page is interesting and attractive.

The book could have at higher level if the author would have written better words at some places in book. The book is really good read, but it is not comparable to Mythical book available in verbal language.
