The Mountain Goddess (The Sadhana Trilogy #2) by Shelley Schanfield

The Mountain Goddess

A beautiful warrior princess. A tormented prince. A terrible choice between love, duty, and spiritual freedom.

When beautiful warrior Dhara masters yoga’s supernatural powers she captures the heart of Siddhartha, the prince prophesied to rule the world or become the greatest sage of all time. But her lust for earthly power clashes with his quest for inner peace. If he leaves his kingdom to seek enlightenment, he risks destroying his people. Only Dhara can convince him to stay.

The Mountain Goddess, the second book in the Sadhana Trilogy, is set in the fascinating world that gave birth to yoga and Buddhism.

Through its strong female characters, it will appeal to readers of historical fiction with a woman’s perspective.

This is the second book in this trilogy and I enjoyed having the opportunity to be able to read the first book in this series, The Tigress and the Yogi. 
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.
