Review: Aqson Level I by Sreejib

Aqson Level I by Sreejib

(I received a free print copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.)

Pandora's Box got stolen from heaven...
She whispered, "How did you get me back?" 
"I stole you from heaven," he replied with a faint smile.
Her answering smile was dazzling.

The oldest game of this world was played for acquisition. It still is.
Lucifer has commenced a game called Aqson, raised the most enigmatic weapon of Nature against Team God and, he has set the Indian Prime Minister's position as the goal of this game.
Now, a completely unknown species will collide with humans to play a game where losing is not figuratively losing. Angels will rise, politics will surge, identities will perish and familiarities will elude when God raises a counter weapon to try and win Level I of Aqson.

Beautifully portrayed well rounded characters! Yuvrani is intelligent, confident and has a presence that is hard to ignore. Like her or hate her but you just cannot ignore her. Toya is my favourite, probably because I can relate well with her. Yuvrani is already there, she's ready and waiting. Toya is just starting out and that makes her relatable to us mortals!

I am completely in love with Goenka, Ollie, AJ and Appy. They are the group of friends any and every girl could ask for. I loved how their personalities mean so much more in the story; how their unique characters gives such a three dimensional look at the plot. Take my word for it, you'll love the characters. It also helps that they are freaking hilarious and can make you look at a serious situation with oodles of humor.

Sky is the absolutely perfect mix of comical, crazy and caring. I personally laughed like a loon at almost every dialogue of hers.

It seems so that of late almost all the novels I've been reading have a unique plot-line. Aqson Level 1 is no exception. The plot is brilliant. The author has thought of literally everything. Greek mythology is pretty common with many fantasy novels but this book uses it differently.

There were parts where I wondered OK what does this have to do with the plot? By the end my question had been answered. I loved how everything came together at the end like a jigsaw puzzle. Every single scene in the story plays an important role in the overall plot. Every scene shows the reader something new and vital. But that doesn't mean all the questions are answered at the end! The end leaves you with new questions. It leaves you with wanting to read the next book ASAP.

I believe I looked like this way too many times when I was reading the book-


The writing was so much fun. I spent a good amount of time laughing! The seriousness of the story is well mixed with humor. At certain points, Bengali words are used but everything is explained in English.

There were times when I felt there was a tad too much description going on but I think it was mostly because of my impatience of wanting to know what happens next!

The writing is clear and smooth. The story moves at a steady pace; neither skipping stuff nor over-detailing them.

- The characters
- The plot
- The humorous take on stuff

-NOTHING (I like everything about this book! )

Everyone pick up up the book and read it already! You're missing out on so much. Loved the book and waiting for the sequel!
