The Secrets of The Dark

Amazing Read !!!


Is one born with his destiny or does he forge it?

In the mystical land of Gaya, two prophecies bind the fate of men and empires alike. The Destroyer born from the royal seed on the Land of the Setting Sun shall bring the empires down, or so has been foretold.

In between the Destroyer and the world stand the Seven Guardians of Gaya, guarding the realm of man. A king, a father, defies the Seven and fate itself to save the last drop of his blood and prince Agni grows in the Land of the Rising Sun, exiled from his own people, unaware of his past.

Losing the woman he loved most to the shadows in the dark, Agni is thrown into a whirlpool of events that he neither knows, nor understands. His quest for vengeance brings him to the doorstep of a secret that will shatter the very foundation of beliefs of a world.

Can Agni avert his destiny? Can he uncover the truth about the Seven and the prophecies, now hidden behind a veil of ignorance?

The secrets of the dark are sometimes so terrible that they are better left unsaid.

General Lessons From Book 

# A man is known for his humility and excels through his patience .
# Modesty is the virtue but don't think yourself to be lesser than anyone when you've proved yourself .
# It is sometimes more important to forgive oneself before being forgiven by others .
# One is never alone in the path of justice .
# You can hide your yourself but never your shadow .

Situations I Came across while reading this book are some loopholes while depicting the story like Agni used his power just once that too my mistake ? Just once ? 

" Modesty is the virtue but don't think yourself to be lesser than anyone when you have proved yourself  "
