    1. Sheetal Maurya Godse (Halo of Books)

      Being a mythology and history lover, when this book offered to me for an honest review I was quite delighted. The blurb and book cover is something which will catch your attention instantly. In the past, I have read several such books, but have never read anything related to Harappa civilization which already makes me curious to read this book. To my surprise, this book left no stone unturned to meet my expectation. Let’s see what this book offers.You may read the full review here Harappa: Cur [...]

      There is a visible trend of mythological/historical fiction in India after the success of Shiva Trilogy. Generally, I try to avoid this genre but somehow this book caught my eye and I liked the overview provided and then the higher ratings (on amazon as well as ) and my love for Varanasi forced me to read this.I have never left a book unfinished, but trust me! this book threatened to break that streak . Even the introduction was a big disappointment. It was a huge dump of information that could [...]

      "Truth is stranger than Fiction" - Hard to say while reading this book!Got lucky to get a review copy of the book. Totally loved it. This is a very very gripping piece of fiction that ties in historical recordings very well. The modern protagonist 'Vidyut' is too much a dude. Him being so intrinsically tied to his bloodline (ok it may sound like Da Vinci Code!) and the story flowing thereafter is a piece of art. If you are into fiction and specially historical and contemporary writings, this is [...]

      *Unpopular opinion ahead*I usually never read mythology/fantasy books. This was strongly recommended by , what caught my attention was the blurb. My curiosity was piqued when I saw this book contains a parallel story where we have two heroes/demigod, one from past and one in future, the curse, and a secret behind the fall of the most glorious civilization. To my utter disappointment, this book didn’t deliver what it claimed. The story/secret was pretty much clear in initial few pages, what fol [...]

      I love reading about historical fiction. When I read the book's blurb, I knew I was going to like the book, and I was not disappointed.The Indus valley civilization was one of my favorites and I was glad to read Harappa.Now coming to the book.

One day, suddenly, he is summoned to Kashi, by his dying great grandfather, Dwarka Shastri, who is the head of the Dev Rakshasa Matth. He bears a secret that would destroy a [...]

      Harappa: curse of the blood river by Vineet Bajpai, is an historical fiction. I had started reading the novel with high expectations after reading many good critic reviews and yes now fully satisfied moreover it's above than what I had expected.The story is adventuristic, moving with two parallel story. Author had connected current and past stories greatly. Also the connection he made between paris, benaras and Harappa is also looks equally great. Even though I prefer more thriller novels I'm al [...]

      CHARACTERS Vidyut Shastri is the protagonist of the story and is quite the chosen one. He excels in just about everything he does and has the aura of otherworldly-ness about him. In the beginning I felt a little annoyed by the fact that the author shows our hero as being pretty much perfect but as the truth about Vidyut is explained throughout the story, his personality and perfection starts to make sense. I liked how as the story progresses, Vidyut like any other character makes mistakes and le [...]

    9. Munisha

      HARAPPA: Curse of the Blood RiverVineet Bajpai beats writers like Dan Brown and Ashwin Sanghi hollow! Harappa has raised the bar for historical thriller writing. I have read Vineet's business books in the past, and have learnt a lot from them. I am glad he has written Harappa now. It is simply un-put-down-able.The story moving between time zones is mind blowing. The characters are profoundly created. I fell in love with Vidyut, the main protagonist of the novel. I have never seen such a characte [...]

      This is definitely one of the best written mythological thrillers i have laid my hands on in the last few years. The plot is well crafted with gripping twists woven in throughout. Characters have been well fleshed out and seem to come alive, particularly Vidyut and Vivasvan. What I found of particular interest is how the story oscillates effortlessly between millennia without losing lustre, kept me gripped throughout. Vineet Bajpai, the author, has definitely done his research and comes across a [...]

    12. Aastha

      So first things first. I loved the storyline. Fast and thrilling. Diving straight into the book, I found myself immersed from the first few pages itself. The author has amazing knack for brining you upfront with the story. The story doesn't unravel itself, you keep unravelling with each page. Twists and turns, mixed with a hearty dose of history and ancient Harappa civilisation is all you need. Definitely Dan Brown and Ashwani Sanghi have rubbed up on him. But there is something more raw and nat [...]

    13. Prashant Misra

      It is an excellent read. The suspense and thrill never seizes to end. Till now I have read more than half of it and believe me as much as I want to finish the booki do not want to end it.

    14. Ankit Himani

      HARAPPA: Curse of the Blood River, an interesting and thrilling fiction genre book. I strongly recommend this book. The narration of modern-day Kashi and ancient Harappa are just really awesome.

    15. Mukul Saini

      Looking forward to the most exciting thriller on the Indus Valley Civilization. The Saga. The secret of Harappa's curse, and the Secret of end of Humankind. Too excited to read.:)

    16. Reethu Ravi

      I rarely read mythological books from Indian authors. And hence I was really sceptical about reading Harappa: curse of the blood river. But the book really surpassed my expectations.CharactersThe protagonist in the part of the story set in 2017 is Vidyut Shastri, a young entrepreneur and most importantly the last devta-half human, half god. Skilled in several forms of martial arts, courageous and always emanating a divine aura, Vidyut is portrayed as the perfect embodiment of a true devta. His [...]

      About the book:The story follows Vidyut, a security tech tycoon, who lives with his girlfriend Damini. But our billionaire extraordinaire ( yes he is a very successful man who has accomplished everything, seems a bit unbelieving at first but wait for it) is actually the last demigod on planet earth.Yes, the very last half-human-half-god.A sudden phone call from home in Banaras, where our protagonist hasn't set foot in almost 30 years, wrecks havoc in his life. For the call means only one thing. [...]

    18. Divya Ramnath Bandodkar

      Review-I was never a great fan of history during my school days. I remember reading about Harappa and Mohenjodaro. The mere name of this book brought all those memories back. Harappa is the kind of book you would pick up to read when you have ample of free time. You wouldn't want to hurry to finish reading it. You will want to consume each and every word of the book to understand the story better.The story is set in two eras - the present day and 1700 BCE. The transition between the two has been [...]

    19. Manisha Malik

      Mr. Bajpai's writing style resembles to that of Mr. Ashwin Sanghi. With coincidence I got this first book as a giveaway. A tale about Harappan Civilisation which was interesting to read about. Story revolves around Vidyut Shastri , Dwarka Shastri and about their abilities as DEMIGODS. Story includes dark magic which was a bit uncomfortable genre for me. Story lacks to connect me with the characters which I expect from the author. It somehow lacks the pace which a suspense thriller story must con [...]

    20. Varun Bajpai

      Harappa is beyond a nail biting story - it seems to be the start of a grand saga. Vineet Bajpai has the capacity to beautifully concoct a heady mix of fantasy and contemporary fiction. The plot structure is very cool, and kept me turning each page, waiting for the next surprise. The book is bound to make you think deeper beyond the contents of the book itself and is a fast paced, breathless story of ambition, deceit, courage woven through the umpteen plot twists and very interesting narrative st [...]

    21. Ashwini Ganesh

      If you love mythological and historical-fantasy books, this is definitely right up your alley. This book is the first in a series of books written by Vineet Bajpai. In the first line of acknowledgements, the author thanks his closest companions - books. You will realise how true that is when you read the book. The book is thoroughly researched, brilliantly written with well-crafted characters.The story describes the events that take place in four different timelines and 4 different locations - 1 [...]

      “Harappa : Curse Of The Blood River” is the 4th book by Vineet Bajpai that I have finished reading today. Thanks to Prerna for recommending the book to me & Team Banani Vista for giving me the opportunity. Core thanks to the author for writing this thrilling book. I completed this book (of 316 pages) in just two sittings to be specific & I think this information is enough for the readers to understand how much gripping the book is! At first, I want to say that the design of the front [...]

    23. Annakannan

      Weaving a novel by travelling past & present, ancient & modern times is a popular style; but, picking up Harappa, which was a well developed civilization, where we are searching our roots till today, is a challenge. Indian mythology is playing a vital role in the entire stretch of story; it's a thrilling journey across time, locations, people & emotions. See, how History is interesting, if handled by right hands!

    24. Manjri Gopalan

      An extremely fast moving and an intersting plot. I loved the way the book has been written. The author has not wasted even one single page in the book. The writing style though resembles Ashwin Sanghi, but Vineet Bajpai has voluntarily confessed it in his book that there might be some rub-offs in the writing style. Eagerly waiting for the second book. If anyone can let me know when is it scheduled for launch, it will of great help.


      Review by Sohinee DeyPlotted against two contrasting backdrops, one which travels back in time and offers a historical background of Harappa, and the other which describes the modern day events and connects with the Harrapan Curse of the Blood River, Vineet Bajpai’s Harappa – Curse of the Blood River could be your next read if you are a mythological/historical/thriller fanatic.Vineet Bajpai rewinds back in time and takes us to 1700 BCE and leaves us there until we gain enough information [...]

    26. Rakhi Jayashankar

      In a land of immense cultural heritage tales are plenty. History is created by those who are powerful at that point, twisted in their favor. Since the release of Immortals of Meluha, there had been a torrent of mythological fiction novels, with mythology and history twisted and deformed to such an extend that I had given up on the genre as such.Nevertheless Harappa is a fresh change from the trend.With a citation of what is written in history, author has convincingly defined the tale of Harappa [...]

      I always got bored studying history in school, only because of the methodology used to teach history in school. I was never interested in mythology stories as a child and so my knowledge of Indian mythology and history is very low.But as I am an avid reader so when I received ‘Harappa- Curse of the Blood River’ for review, I grabbed the opportunity. I have always been fascinated about the ancient civilizations and thus the book seemed to be an ideal read for me. Though it is a fiction, this [...]

      A gripping novel from the beginning till the end! Well, I wouldn't say it is an end because the novel does not end with this book as it continues in the next part as Pralay - The Great Deluge.A perfect combination of the past and the present, where the story goes all the way back to Harappan Civilisation and comes to the present one. Author has also asserted that he has used some of the historic references to make the story interesting and it is a pure fiction. He has also mentioned that he resp [...]
