Demons of Time – Race to the 7th Sunset
Author – Varun Sayal
Many books are written around a fantasy world which are difficult to understand this is because many a times authors, even after lot of hard work are unable to transport the reader mentally. Time travel, and the stories around it aren’t easy to write and narrate. Author Varun Sayal in his book ‘Demons of
Time – race to the 7th sunset’ has tried to do the same and kudos to him for that.
The book has been set in Indian context which starts with 3077BC and progresses with a steady pace which puts readers at an ease to understand the situations and characters in a much better way.
The author has kept limited characters in thestory which helps readers to understand the story and characters with ease. The
characters are given with Indian names that makes it interesting for the readers of Indian origin. The author has kept the timeline of the book with uniformity so that readers can’t lose sight of the story at any point.
The cover-page does reflect a western look but the characters are named and framed in Indian context. The author has described the characters really well and really interesting to
read how characters from mythology are living at an ear heavily led by technological advances. Protagonists and other small
characters are beautifully presented as one may easily know about their thought processes and mind set very easily.
Each and every activity in the story is relevant and easy to relate. The language is easy and impactful. Twists are set
according to the requirements of the pace of the story.
Emotions like love, hate, magic, betrayal, sorrow, happiness and time traveling are beautifully reflected through the
characters and story line. This book is highly recommended for the readers who love to read mythological and fantasy thrillers.
The author has successfully accomplished his target of writing a book in this category.
I would like to give the book four stars.
