Book Spotlight for “I am the 10th” by D. R. Downer


Sarah, a happily married lady from New Delhi, India, wakes up one fine morning in an unknown place. It’s not her home, not her city; it’s not even her country.

What is she doing there? How did she reach there? Where is her family?

Her search to all these questions takes her on a journey, a long journey that started way back in the 3rd century BC, a journey where she finds out that everything she thought she knew about her- her marriage, husband, family, home, India, even her name- was a lie.

Will she be able to find out the truth? More importantly, will she be able to handle the truth if she finds it out?

Come and join Sarah on her journey that will take you to 300 BC and back.Witness the biggest and the deadliest battle ever in the history of mankind that could well spell the end of humanity and the end of this world. Experience the might of theancient Shastras and Astras,like NaagPash, Brahma Kavach, and Narayan Astra.

Based in modern times, ‘I Am The 10th’ is the story of one of the oldest, and arguably the mightiest cults that originated in India during the 3rd century BC.


She opened the door and went out, to find herself standing in a long corridor with rows of doors on either side. ‘Is this a hotel? Why am I in a hotel?’ she thought, still standing there and trying to decide her next move. ‘Maybe, the receptionist or someone can tell me something,’ she thought walking down the deserted corridor.

Upon reaching the end, Sarah looked at the stairs on her left and realized that she was on one of the upper floors. She looked around and saw an old elevator on the right with folding, iron grill doors. Instinctively, she decided against the elevator and started walking down the battered staircase. Rather than the strange surrounding, what was bothering her more was the eerie absence of another living soul. There was no sound, no movements, no sign whatsoever, of any kind of life around.

‘There is something definitely creepy, something not right going on here,’ she thought, as she felt the strangely-familiar chill running down her spine. Slowly and cautiously, she managed to reach the bottom of the stairs that was, luckily for her, just one flight down.
