The book is currently sailing as a best seller in the ‘adventure novel’ category on Amazon and is expected to enter its second print run early next year.
The Lost Faith is a tale, a perfect amalgamation, of adventure, friendship, faith and mysteries. The story encompasses the thrilling journey of two friends to a remote destination, an ancient barren temple of Lord Shiva. The trip goes chaotic when they get entrapped in a wolf dominated expanse and have to survive the terror. The destiny further compels them to travel to another exotic land; the land of a vicious demigod, known to be bestowed with abilities to control wild tuskers. They, along with a team of few benevolent men, hatch an arduous plan to save the gullible natives from the wicked swami.
The story connects with the readers seamlessly and does evoke the fear of unknown. It also gives the audience certain thoughts to ponder upon about religion, human values and courage. The story theme emphasizes on the fact that a long journey, an odyssey, can truly lead a person into creating memoirs worth cherishing for a life time. The novel tagline is also true in an honest sense – protagonists are not born or made; they rise when karma provokes them.
Major Piyush Semwal is also a photographer and a long haul biker who sincerely believes that travelling expands your horizon of thoughts. He loves reading humor, science-fiction and visceral titles.
