Synopsis

Book one of the Maha Vishnu Trilogy, The Code of Manavas, is set some two million years past ad 2050, when earth as we know it ceased to exist and so did mankind. A new race, the Manavas, now exists on Bhoomi, the erstwhile Earth, which is divided into two cities—Madhavpur and Ayudhpur. In the quiet and peaceful city of Madhavpur, a reclusive Krishna is busy with an immense task. He has to prepare a new abode for the Manavas before an impending apocalypse destroys them. He knows something that nobody else does—the Manavas are running out of time faster than they can imagine and there are no inhabitable planets to escape to. To make matters worse, there is someone in Madhavpur who wants to destroy Krishna and subjugate each Manava. The Manavas, it seems, are doomed. Yet Krishna knows there is a slim chance of survival for the Manavas, although there is a huge price to be paid for it. Will the various factions of the Manavas unite for the greater good? Will Krishna, who saved them during the turn of the last Yuga, be able to save them now? What will be the price to pay? Enter the mythical world of Maha Vishnu and get swept up in a fast-paced suspenseful narrative.


My Review

The first book of the Maha Vishnu Trilogy, The Code of Manavas is a promising book with perfect combination of science and mythology.
The book begins with Krishna who is all set to set existence of new race of, Manava. The new race is set in future when Kali-yug was over and with limited survivors, Krishna is setting up a new secure land, Bhoomi in the galaxy.
The new world is way more technologically advanced and superior to their ancestors. The author has pulled of many names associated with Lord Vishnu and portrayed them in such a powerful, intellectual and tech- savy manner. 
Book is fast paced and would not let readers to leave their place. Author has not revealed much in the first instalment, which is a bonus point that the readers would be hooked to know what's more lies in the story ahead.
Narration was amazing, the book cover was so beautiful and the title, the apt one.
Really enjoyed reading the balance between the mythology ane science.
I would not specifically recommend it but this book is something which we can be read by any genre readers. Overall, the book was so refreshing, fascinating and a page Turner.

Overall rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐
