Truth and Justice are merely matter of perspective. The series is set in fourth age of human race. The age of Iron, also called Age of Kali. It has been barely five hundred years since the end of the last age and the human world is a state of flux. The ethics of the previous age are in direct conflict with the practicalities of the current age. The human world struggles to accept the changes that is occurring. The series is centered in Aryavartha involving the multiplenations that compose and told through different viewpoints. The paramount power of the land Magadhan Empire is in a state of flux due the ascendency of a new king. And for the various constituent states of the empire this presents an opportunity to reassert their independence. And in the midst of the conflict arises an ancient threat, which has all but forgotten by humans, scions of Rishi Kashyapa return, hoping to reclaim their birthright. Their struggle for recognition is absolute, irrespective of the cost. In response the humans are forced to seek the help of the ‘Upadevas’. Their presence creates a greater havoc as Earth becomes a battleground with humans fighting to avoid being hapless spectators. It’s a story where there are no heroes, only viewpoints. And each stands in direct opposition to all others. “Dharmo Rakshati Rakshitaha- Dharma protects those who protect it…..so goes the saying from Manusmriti. An aphorism, considered an ideal way of life for a human. But in a age where the quest for survival presents a greater challenge, ethics and loyalty have become mere cursory references in the lives of people; in this world it becomes hard to define Dharma. A disillusioned general caught between his loyalty for his country and the cost of that loyalty. An assassin stuck in the past, hoping for a way to escape it. A warrior desperately trying to gain the respect of his benefactor. And an ancient enemy, re-emerging, hoping to right old wrongs. This is age of suffering and conflict, an age of Apostasy and humanity stands on a knife edge.”
Age of Apostasy Knife Edge is now available in stores. Abhijeeth has written a prequel for the same called Age of Apostasy First Signs. This is available for free download via lulu.com or if the reader wishes to download via PDF they can download it here.

I write a lot, which keeps me off the streets and out of trouble. There is always something to write about, always a new story to craft. Not writing, for me, is like trying to hold back a sneeze. Learning to write was the most powerful influence in my life. I can still remember the awe I felt when I realized I could put real words onto paper and tell out a story. From that first ‘a-ha’ moment I knew I wanted to write.
