5 Star IHIBRP Book Review: “The Dragon Warrior of Kri: A Shiva XIV Story” by Lyra Shanti

A Must-Read For All Shiva XIV Followers

Lyra Shanti’s “The Dragon Warrior of Kri: A Shiva XIV Story” is the story of Meddhi, a former priest of the Dei, who—as many young men challenged with finding the meaning in their lives—is seeking his true path amid the increasing tensions and turmoil of personal and galactic events. This short novella, less than 100 pages long, can be read either as a stand-alone piece or in tandem with Shanti’s well-known space opera, the Shiva XIV Novel Series.

Shanti’s propensity for both world-building and character development don’t go unnoticed in Meddhi’s tale. This imaginative, and oftentimes endearing story, deals with a wide host of worlds and a variety of aliens that all come together in the ever-evolving saga of the Un Galaxy. As for Shanti's main protagonist ... “The Dragon Warrior of Kri” sees an awakening in Meddhi, from subservient peaceful holy man to powerful warrior learning to be on his own and in charge of his own destiny. The length of this story may be brief, but it is long on insight for a character that will soon become the driving force behind Shanti’s Shiva XIV series, for “The Dragon Warrior of Kri” not only outlines Meddhi’s ultimate goals—for himself and his people, it sets the tone for his charismatic and pivotal role as the beloved mentor for the long-awaited messiah of his home galaxy and star of Shanti’s epic series, Ayn. In the end, what makes a for a great short read for any Sci-fi fan, proclaims Shanti’s “The Dragon Warrior of Kri” as a must-read for all Shiva XIV followers.
