The Flame of Anahata ~ Book Review

The Flame of Anahata: Love Conquers All... by [Umakanthan, Saranya]Blurb:
“They turned to see his tears of love wiping away her blood of agony…”
Diya throws Suraj’s proposal back in his face, leaving him broken-hearted. Why would she do so when she loved him desperately?
Suraj finds his Guruji unconscious beside a cave clutching the warrior Indrajith’s diary. His heart-rending love story then unfolds. Being trapped in a web of emotions, Indrajith endured the pain of his lost love, hurting himself and trampled Deepali’s hope for his adopted brother… Who was he?
Sealed for centuries and holding the Mann-Parivarthana astra, the cave is besieged by evil now. But all attempts to unlock it go futile. Faced with baffling hints, Suraj’s intelligence is sorely tested. What is the potent power required to break through that Paanch-Dost-Gupha?
Will the fire of love ever flicker in the hearts of Diya and Suraj?


“Love conquers the body by embracing it,
conquers the mind by massaging it,
conquers the heart by kissing it,
and conquers the soul by marrying it.
Love conquers all ……”

The Flame of Anahata – Love Conquers all takes you through two different time period with the concept of rebirth. It all starts from Diya turning down Suraj inspite of her love for him, so why exactly did she do that?! The answer remains in the past and it is up to Suraj to face this battle of time.

Re births, mysery and fantasy … all grab my attention in a book quickly and that worked well for this book. I loved how my favourite themes are presented so amazingly in THE FLAME OF ANAHATA. There were a lot of interesting parts to it like the meaning of Anahat, panch gupha, the chakra … a lot of things that made my eyes twinkle 😉 . The plot line and the way the concept of love is presented contributes to the strength of this book and I would like to appreciate the author for pulling out it so well, even though the base material for it is common for a fantasy historic thriller, she was able to add on and blend things to produce something different and outstanding. The reading experience was like that of watching a movie, the words turned into actions in front of my inner eyes.

The only thing that disappointed me is it’s cover design, the anime like girl and the army… I don’t think it worked out well and gives out that seriousness of the plot.

I will rate this book 4.5/5. Book lovers out there, do grab a copy … it is just brilliant!
