#BookReview : The Prophecy of Trivine by Tnahsin Garg, Srivatsan Sridharan, Pulkit Gupta

On the jacket:

An emissary of an advanced alien race travels to the Earth to undertake responsibility of an experiment that has gone out of control. The outcome of this fateful experiment, which was conceived millions of years ago by her species, now rests in her hands. As she prepares to deliver her final judgment, she comes across three young men in a sacred forest who change her life forever. 

These three men- a scientist, a hacker and an artist, happen to take refuge in that forest, trying to escape from the oddities of their own unfair lives. Struggling with their dreams and demons, they begin to explore the dark and paranormal behavior of the forest by forging a companionship. From the rare flora and fauna breathing alive on the ground to the deadly wide expanse of the whimsy black sky, everything they find is yet another puzzle unsolved. 

Little did they know that four of them hold in their hands the future of mankind and much beyond imagination, they are connected through an ancient Prophecy that was long lost in the sands of time.


I was approached by one of the authors, Tnahsin, to review this book and despite this not being my choice of genre to read, I opted to. 

I began reading without much expectation but at the end of it, I must say, it's very difficult to keep the interest of someone who isn't a fan of the genres - but, the authors have managed to do a commendable job here. 

Characters are well-defined and true to themselves, the plot is sci-fi but the kind which can interest everyone. The continuity doesn't skip a bit and the narration is smooth. A tale about three friends - Phil, a hacker; siv, a scientist and Arty, an artist - by three writers. 

Phil is an ethical hacker who is trying to change the world in his own way. Like most young men are, temperamental and emotional, he is also a wanted criminal. Siv is a scientist who is very dedicated to his research. Arty is our artist who love art as well as literature with passion. Our villian here is a woman, Xona. 

Rating: ***.5/5
