They stumble upon a dynastic princess and her new born baby and resolve to unite her with her prince from the opposing dynasty.

Overseeing the evil in the world, a demonic sorcerer wields the blackest magic and destroys the whole dynastic army.

Can the three stop him or will they, like the army, perish in the attempt?

REVIEW- History Revisited is Sci-fiction by author Nishant Joshi with the touch of historical fiction. Kudos to the writer for writing a sci-fi genre book which indian authors find difficult to grasp.

Book Title and Cover- Book Title is interesting and is appropriate while book cover shows one of the battle scene mentioned in the book. Blurb is interesting enough but there is always something to improve. It could have been more interesting. Overall first impression of the book is well and attracts the readers.

Language and Narration- Language used in the book is simple,without traffic of difficult words. Font and Pages used are reader friendly. Narration of the book is straightforward and impressive.

Storyline and Plot- Storyline and Plot of the book is interesting and keeps the readers hooked with the book.First chapter of the story is interesting but as story continues it started losing my attention. Few incidents in the book were completely out of the story and should be removed to keep the readers attracted.Fighting scenes were too long to read. Also there are few typing errors which should be considered in next edition of the book.

1. Book Cover and Title- 3.2/5
2. Language and Narration- 3.5/5
3.Storyline and Plot- 2.5/5

Final Rating- 3/5

Overall History Revisited is one of the few sci-fi novel written by an Indian Author. It will surely entertain you if read lightly. You can grab your copies from Amazon, Flipkart and any bookstore near you.
