I would like to introduce the readers of our blog to two books which are soon to be released.
The Avatari: The book is being published by Hachette and being marketed as ‘The Adventure Thriller of the Year’. Authored by a serving Army Officer, Col Raghu Srinivasan, the book can be pre-ordered online at a discount from Amazon by clicking this link. A description of the book as reflected @ Amazon, is as follows:
A Mythical Kingdom: Legend has it that only those chosen by destiny can gain entry into Shambhala, the mythical kingdom believed to hold the ancient wisdom that humanity will need to resurrect itself from the inevitable apocalypse. They are the Avatari.
An Ancient Artefact: When Henry Ashton, a retired British Army officer settled in the Yorkshire dales, receives a letter from a monk entreating him to prevent a 'hidden treasure' stolen from a Laotian monastery from being misused, he finds himself honor-bound to respond. Assisted by a retired Gurkha Sergeant, a high-strung mathematician from Oxford with a Shambhala fixation of her own and an American mercenary on the CIA's hit list, Ashton's mission leads to an ancient map that dates back to the time of the great Mongol, Kublai Khan.
A Secret that Must Not be Revealed: The group follows the trail, risking the perils of the inhospitable deserts of Ladakh, turmoil in Pakistan and the rugged mountains of Northern Afghanistan, where the Afghan War is at its height. But they are up against a deadly adversary with seemingly unlimited resources, who will stop at nothing to get possession of the ancient secret – a secret that, if revealed, could threaten the very fabric of human civilization
Beyond NJ 9842– The Siachen Saga : Authored by well known defence journalist, Mr Nitin Gokhale, the book is a tribute to the Indian soldiers who have served at the Glacier. And 2014 also marks the 30th Anniversary of Operation Meghdoot. Details of the book and the process of pre-ordering the same at a discount can be perused by clicking here.
