Book Cover Review
The cover page undoubtedly suits the story, an Owl with the three world presentation in it. The cover will make sense once we finish the book.
After i went through few pages of the book, I had a thought that this is the story about a normal human, a supernatural being and an extraterrestrial being. But as the story went the normal human became imbalanced, the supernatural human become a guide and the extraterrestrial being became a more like a normal being. I mean the story was totally unpredictable till i reached half of the book.
David, the banker and an ambitious person wants to reach a higher level in both money and fame. Alisdair who dies and reaches the other world and there he explores the possibilities of his life. Nooe-bouk a grey being unknown of its origin , tries to find it’s way to Tayr( Earth) to stop the destruction which would affect the other worlds existence.
Nooe-bouk’s part of the story was very complex to grasp and hard to imagine. It had many concepts and details which was tough but it was essential to understand the Nooe-bouk side of story. At times the story was dragging because of the complexity yet the author pulled again with the narration of Alisdair portions. It was motivating and thought provoking. The book was full of confusing plots which kindled me to wait eagerly for the link which connects this three world.
Yes, I don’t know how the author came up with the three different world and joined it with a knot. Special appreciation for that to the author.
Overall the book will make you wonder whether you are reading a psychological thriller or horror or a Science fiction or a drama plot. But still the author will make you to get involved with the story and reach us to the last page.
What I Liked
The touch of three unique world and the way it was narrated and plotted.
What Could have been better
The owl part could have been explained clearly at the end. And the time link of David being at Greece and the meet up with his parents with vanessa was confusing.
Yes, For the book readers who love to read complex storyline.
I would like to thank the author and author’s team for sending me a digital copy for an exchange of a honest review.
