🚀 How would you feel when you’re inside a spaceship and fighting against a massive black hole? What if you’re given a chance to have a ride inside space by sitting at your home and reading a wonderfully written sci-fi book? Well that’s exactly what this book did to me?
🚀 This book is the third one in the Earth to Centauri series. Even if you haven’t read the first two books, you can still read this as a standalone with a recap at the start! The story revolves around our protagonist, Captain Anara and her spaceship Antariksh and continues with the alien attack of the first two books. The story is set on 2117 with Antara fighting against one of the most powerful entity in the world — Blackhole, which threatens to swallow the earth in a year’s time! She’s caught in the event horizon of the blackhole from where nothing, even light cannot escape. Inexorably drawn towards their doom, the crew desperately try to breakout.
🚀 The universe is indeed a big oblivion for mankind. Mumbai, the mega city is hit by an alien attack, with Anara saving the city but the aliens who escape create an explosion that results in the creation of the blackhole! Thus begins the rapid chasing of enemy’s spaceship ‘Trukiff’ by our spaceship Antariksh, led by Antara. Will Anara save her ship or perish in her efforts to safeguard earth?
🚀 This is a well-researched book, with space as the backdrop thereby extending our creative enigmas. There are plenty of unexpected twists and turns, combined with a fast-paced narration that makes an exciting combination for a promising sci-fi book. The author has done a commendable job in portraying humanity along with science and has also used a convincingly simple writing style. Captain Anara is my favourite character, with her commendable grit and grace!
🚀 I wish someday there’s a movie on this book which I’m sure would be a blockbuster! I highly recommend this thrilling, creatively visualised, engaging book to all sci-fi lovers!
