Quest For Kriya by Rahul Deokar
Haunted by tragic loss in the 1993 India earthquake, a broken Shakti with a tenuous hold on life is sheltered by her soul-sister Kriya. But when Kriya vanishes without a trace, Shakti is unwittingly swept into a cataclysmic vortex of greed, lust and betrayal. Shakti meets Shiva, a struggling Silicon Valley entrepreneur, and discovers that love is an enigmatic cosmic force.
Shakti and Shiva are thrust on a frantic race against time through the dark Mumbai underbelly, forbidden Thailand islands, and treacherous cliffs in the Andaman Sea, where danger lurks in every shadow. As they get closer to the truth, they realize that millions of innocent lives are at stake. Quest for Kriya is an epic saga of love, friendship and sacrifice. The journey is incredible. The emotions are real. The transformation is eternal.
Let me start off by saying that I really enjoyed this book! It started off a bit slow to me but by somewhere in the middle I was sucked in. Definitely a great read!
There were a few times when the details seemed to drag on, but then I would get to a part in the book where I found the reason for the details. The weaving of the past and present together was wonderful and I loved reading the mix of cultures. So, all in all, I was certainly not disappointed and I am so glad that I had the opportunity to read this gem!
