Falguni Kothari launches her book SOUL WARRIOR: THE AGE OF KALI

Falguni Kothari, a New York-based hybrid author has launched her book SOUL WARRIOR: THE AGE OF KALI exclusively on AMAZON today. The novel is an urban fantasy based in mythological themes, and is the first book in the Age of Kali series. She laughingly describes it as a Bollywood-style Mahabharata Part 2. The E-book is available only on Amazon.in from today and is priced at Rs. 198. (Also available worldwide on Amazon, iBooks, Kobo, Nook and her website.) About the book: Soul Warrior reimagines the old myths and legends of India. The story focuses on Karna, the son of Surya, who has been the guardian of the Human Realm for almost 8,000 years, and has recently been appointed guru to a bunch of delinquent godlings fresh of the Celestial boat. On the surface, the divine request seems simple. But very quickly, the situation goes from bad to worse. Karna’s new students give him no small amount of trouble in the obedience department. His old paramour suddenly comes back into his life, seemingly to her own sinister agenda. Also, there are rumors that his old nemesis is on his way back to Earth after 5,000 years in exile to even scores. Then there’s the whole mess about his secret ill-fated offspring. All in all, the demons who Karna vanquishes on a daily basis seem like stress-relief compared to the new unearthly calamities disrupting his life. Soul Warrior is unique in the sense that it takes the mighty epic’s characters and plunks them into the modern world, without divesting them of any of their cosmic mystique. Kothari’s additions to that hallowed pantheon are larger-than-life, fully rounded characters, all of whom bring their own unique flavor to the fantastic fast-paced feast she serves up for a reader.
