Release Day Blitz: Soul Warrior By Falguni Kothari

About the Book: Twisted myths. Discretion advised.  Fight fate, or succumb to destiny? In the dark Age of Kali, the Soul Warrior alone stands guard over the Human Realm, protecting its denizens from evil-willed asuras or demons.

Spanning the cosmic realms of mythic India, here is a tale of a band of supernatural warriors who come together over a singular purpose: the salvation of Karna’s secret child.

But the Bard wasn’t here to succumb to superstition.  The first day without the sun’s light had...
