Three words for this book- Amazing, Amazing and AMAZING.
Wait! Did I repeat myself ?
‘LET THE GAME BEGIN’ is the second book of a very talented Indian author- Sandeep Sharma.
The cover of the book where speaks volume about the story; the blurb itself is self-sufficient.
‘LET THE GAME BEGIN’ is a mixture of ‘OHs’ and ‘OOHs’ ; it indeed, is a combination of emotions ranging from friendship, love, betrayal and revenge.
Two kingdoms- Chaturanga and Sarprakt are at war with each other. But for Sarprakt, defeating Chaturanga is not just a piece of cake.
When the king of Chaturanga is blessed with a son, the whole kingdom is drowned in the celebrations; unaware of the unknown stratagem that is cooking in the other kingdom.
From here, starts the game of chess , which further becomes the main reason for the gruesome history, bloodshed and the destruction of a whole kingdom.
Years later, serial killings shock the people. The only evidence, police find every time a murder happens, is a chess piece and a message ( in a strange language ).
The only question that keeps you intrigued with this story is- ‘Why is chess a connecting link between these two different stories ? Is there any link between the unsolved mystery of past and the raising mystery of present..?
This book is absolutely enthralling to read, with all the ingredients of Drama, emotions, twists and turns. It, indeed is a delightful read and leaves the readers with strong ‘wanting-wanting’ feeling of more.
The author has successfully portrayed the elements of suspense and mystery. The story is not build within just a single era, instead along with one more.
The Plotting and the flow is so in pace, that every chapter ends in a cliffhanger.
Although, the major drawback in the book is that of editing and proofreading, but keeping that aside, the book, the plot and all the characters are perfectly made.
Overall, a thrilling read!
