As exquisite as the book cover looks, this sci-fi book is a must read for all lovers of science fiction, futuristic novels, investigative plots and all those who enjoy reading in general. The language of PORT717 is fabulous and brilliantly clean just like the plot. There are no spelling errors what so ever.
‘The Astral Surge’ is a realization and exploration of the relationship between the Awareness and the Unknown. Well researched and also, thrilling at times, the book ponders on the amalgamation of nature and artificial intelligence, on mutation and formation of Super Humans and, the impact of such a development on the whole of Creation.
Time Guard: The Awakening is recommended to anyone interested in stories which are a blend of sci-fi, mythology and all things supernatural. The author challenges the readers to think outside the box and imagine different scenarios.
The book is a post-apocalyptic science fiction which tells us the story of a world in the aftermath of a nuclear attack. Though it has elements of dystopian fiction, it also has a hint of many other genres including a generous dose of drama, a decent amount of romance and a great focus on the socio-political power struggles.
Vyom and the Royal Weapon is a fascinating tale about a global organisation that promotes international cooperation and strives to establish world peace. It is an unputdownable and exciting read about fierce combats resting on Indian tradition and myth that can be read from cover to cover.
For all the science-fiction readers out there, author Sadhna Shanker, through her latest book Ascendance, brings to you a world where the whole setting is foreign and the population segregation bizarre. It has a whodunit factor that answered to the thirst for mystery in me.
