About the Book:
After ten long years, a twenty-something Amaan reluctantly comes back to his once-thriving-now-desolate kingdom, Attanooga, to fulfill his mother’s last wish of a hometown funeral. Saira is a journalist, but her job for the past five years has been the same – a beautiful bait to expose famous people with demented habits. Strangely, her memories of the past come to her like an out of order puzzle – whether it’s of her estranged mother, her one true hate, or the broken heart because of her break-up with Amaan years ago.
Trapped in failing ambition and marshy relationships, Saira gets a rare chance to resurrect both, when she’s chosen to lead a special feature on the life and times of the late queen, Amaan’s mother. Determined to get her career and life in order at all costs, would her scheming deception end her misery or swallow her into a sinkhole where lines between blood and dreams aren’t to be trusted. Read on to find what happens when they are caught in The Crossfire of Love.
About the Author:
Dhiren is based out of US and co-pilots plotting stories, along with a full-time leadership role which includes re-thinking future of the world, and M&A. Often spotted at airports, he’s a compulsive traveller (not by choice) and clocks over 2 lakh miles every year. He is also the author of Punk Sunk Love which was selected at the New York-based IAAC Literary festival in 2016.
My take on the Book:
Ok first of all If you want to pick this book thinking it’s a love story, let me warn you by saying no it’s not! It is far from being called a romantic love story novel. The narration surely revolves around the 2 leads Amaan and Saira but it is a mixture of Politics, Mystery, family connections, love with wicked plotting. I love the catchy title of the book and the characterization of each individual in the book was very well put together. From the beginning itself, I liked the author’s hold on the language as it was very well articulated and it felt like I was reading an international authors’ writings. But, this book comes with a difficult narration. It was very much confusing and I had to re-read a few of the chapters again to understand what was happening. This surely is a great book that can get connected to the reader and even the plot of the book is first- class but the muddled execution of narrative was a total off to me. I would recommend you to give this book a try solely for its gripping plot and author’s amazing writing style.
