The code of the Manavas by Arpit Bakshi

Set in the future the book revolves around the character of Krishna. He has created a new compound called Bhoomidium which turned humans into a new race called the Manavas. But the intelligent and immortal Manavas are doomed and the fast eroding Bhoomidium reserves isn’t making their life any easier. Will Krishna be able to save the Manavas?
The plot is fast paced and thrilling. It is very important for a multi book series to have strong well developed characters in the first book to anchor the whole series, and this book doesn’t disappoint. The character of Krishna stands out for me. Initially when I was reading the book I felt like it was similar to the Immortals of Meluha – with the 2 kingdoms, the avatar of a God, a secret element giving them power. But as I read on it turned out to be quite different. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this perfect blend of sci- fi and mythology. Highly recommended.
