I received free copy of this book from Cyclopes Literary Services in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.
Book Cover and Title- Book Cover is appealing and confusing at the same time which makes positive impact on readers mind. However it could be improved. Book title is attractive. Blurb is short and clears all the confusion about the story.
Language and Narration- Language of the book is simple and easy to comprehend. Narration is done in first person and is done well.
However too many editing errors makes reading experience slightly difficult.
Characterization- Characterization is where author wins my heart. The way little details about characters are mentioned and how characters evolve with the story is amazing.
Storyline and Plot- Storyline is straightforward with few twists and turns through the book. Book is divided into 7 defences. Each defence has twists which holds readers with the book.
Although the story is straightforward it has many loopholes. Sometimes the story seems annoying even though characters are portrayed beautifully.
Also storyline and plot is usual one and has nothing to give except beautiful characters.
Book Cover and Title- 3/5

Final Rating- 2.5/5
