In this book, Dhara who is a princess warrior, masters these supernatural abilities, meanwhile, she steals the heart of this prince warrior who is to foresee over the entire world. This story starts out with a magical story that is fun to read that leads into Buddhism. Interesting and fun read. Not a story I would typically pick up to read but I did enjoy it. This is a fantasy read - which may be why I didn't enjoy it as much as I was hoping to, but I like to expand, or at least attempt to expand my reading taste. This just wasn't it. And that isn't to say that a lot of people won't enjoy this read because for those that enjoy this genre I am sure will enjoy this book/trilogy.
Choices to be made. Love, duty and freedom. Dhara wants to learn from the yogi Mala who is a strange women and is known to have violence in her past. Dhara leaves her clan to go to Mala. Dhara has quite a journey meeting Siddhartha along the way. Both have exceptional mental capabilities and martial arts. Dhara is enchanted with power. This doesn't set well with her husband who just wants a solitary life. Since Siddhartha doesn't want this worldly power and pleasures it brings, she becomes the warrior.The have a son. Siddhara is very unsettled. He wants to find peace but if he leaves to do so he could destroy his family. How can he be convinced to stay and who can do it?This world that The Mountain Goddess is set in gave birth to yoga and Buddhism. If you like fantasy and historical epics this may draw you in. The book has females that are strong willed and you get a female's look at things.A different world, a different time but some connections to our world, our time.
