Book: Strangers With Known Faces

Author: Gautam Dutta

Language: English

Rating: 4/5

Strangers With Known Faces is a tale of five friends. The story starts with the murder of Shanaya Mishra in 2030 and the suspects were her friends Rajat, Amol, Sadda and Meenakshi. They were investigated and asked about Shanaya and the time they spent with her during college days.

Since CBI couldn’t find any solid proof against the four friends, it can’t do anything. Rajat and Meenakshi on the other hand, started doing investigation on their own. When Rajat’s name was highlighted in news for land deals, all evidences pointed to him making him the culprit. Is Rajat really behind the murder of Shanaya?

Grab a copy of this book to know all the mystery behind Shanaya’s death. The story is intriguing with so many twists and turns. You wouldn’t want to put it down until you finish it. Book needs to be formatted properly. I suggest this to beginners who love reading murder mystery.

Book: Stuck (In Time)

Author: Dave Johnson

Language: English

Rating: 5/5

I love reading Science Fantasy that involves time travel. Stuck (In Time) is a mix of Sci-fi and history. The protagonist of the story are three kids: James, Robert and Lucy. During their Easter holiday, they went to their Uncle Archie in Cambridge.

One night James found that he is invincible. He told his brother Robert about it but Robert pushed him away thinking that James must be playing a prank on him. In the morning, James told his siblings that he is not kidding and he is seriously invisible.

Kids thought that they will tell about this only to Uncle Archie. They went to his secret office in search of him but to their surprise they saw a time machine. They cracked key codes and found that Uncle Archie has travelled to the past in 1940s and stuck there now. Will the siblings be able to save their Uncle Archie and their brother?

This is the first book in the Stuck Series. With an intriguing story, I can’t put the book down until I finish it. There are so many mysteries to be solved and this would be a perfect pick by children and YA for an enjoyable read. I recommend this book to Sci-fi lovers.

Rating: 4.5/5

The Threat Below is a YA fantasy novel by the author J.S. Latshaw. The protagonist of the story is Icelyn Brathius, daughter of the head of the Mountain Top. Her relationship with her childhood bestie Adorane Hailgard was much more than just friendship. One day, they both went beyond the wall but whatever they witnessed there, made them to run back to the mountaintop.

Things started to turn upside down when the people of Mountaintop found the water contaminated. What they will do now to survive? The way storyline is built up is highly impressive. The twists and turns in the story made it more interesting. It was a long read so I finished it in multiple sittings but it is definitely worth my time.

Highly recommended for apocalyptic dystopian fans. The title of the book is apt and is well related to the story. Gonna pick the next book “A Gallery Of Mothers”.

Traveller Inceptio by Rob Shackleford

Traveller Inceptio is a mind blowing time travel novel that revolves around the concept of accidental discovery of a time machine i.e. Transporter. Upon its discovery, travellers were given the needed training to go 1000 years back in time to Saxon England. The way travellers discovered that they need more than technology to survive the trials of early 11th-century life was gripping.

Traveller Inceptio is different as compared to other normal time travel reads. The twists and turns will hook you to the story more. It is not only just about time travelling but it has history added to it.

The plot and the story moving back and forth made it interesting. The character development is strong. Phil and Yeti played a great role especially about their involvement with the time machine. The last few pages are really interesting. Pace of the novel was fast enough to hook the readers.. Overall it was an interesting read that one should pick up surely.
