Secret Agents of Bharat (India) are mysteriously disappearing. The government of Bharat is worried about the possible repercussions with a country that is an equal. She had cultural, economic, scientific, military and social ties that prevented her from taking any possible action. Conventional means of finding about the missing agents have failed. The government decides to send a covert observation team to find out the truth. Will the team be successful? What truths will this team uncover? Will it spoil the relations between two nations leading to a world shattering war?
YawningBrain: Interesting plot, the writing quality and character design are very good.
Excellent job, author, I had so many conflictive emotions and feeling while reading this one, some of the paragraphs has such a meaningful descriptions that really make one think about women’s strives in life, even if this is a work of fiction, this covers and shows a real situation.
Please author, keep up with the good job!
Freezing_bean: The idea is good. While reading, I felt a lot of emotion, which was also good, but it is difficult to understand and follow the story. The names of the main characters were difficult to remember and so it was difficult to follow the story. I needed a lot of focus to read this story. But the writing, if out of context, is very amazing, but its not very well in a context like this. This book also made me think about a lot of important things in different light, otherwise, I would have never imaged them. It made me thank that we don’t live in the 1910 where women still had to be stereotypical house wives. Anyhow, this was overall enjoyable. I do recommend this.
Clockhours: This is my first time reading a story based on India. I like the way you set up the world by mixing the culture and history. Overall, the characters are great and the story is solid. There are few things which I feel should be looked into. There is an excessive use of description. I totally agree with the world building description but when describing the characters it would have been better if you did it by mixing dialogues in midst of it. The mission part, where the head was briefing them, I kind of felt as the team members are amateurs going to a mission of national importance. I mean, come on, those who are selected for these types of mission are given atleast basic training before being sent to their mission. All the instructions given by the head would have been more interesting if they showed it through their actions or when they are in a situation and remembers the word of their head. Otherwise this novel is a pleasure to read.
VishalGupta: Writing Quality: It is very good. The story flow is very natural and smooth. Only a couple of Grammatical errors, which you can skip and can be avoided with if the author sticks to British English. British and American English can often conflict with each other.
Stability of Updates: The updates so far has been regular and frequent.
Story Development: The story starts of well and hooks you up. And it continues to grip your attention.
Character Design: I think this can be improved a bit. Especially, the Male Characters. They lack depth. Although the World described is a Dystopia for Women, and the most men in the setting are horny and sadistic, the individual Motives of Male characters can be explored a bit.
World Background: I wouldn’t say it is unique, yet, it is rare and creative. This is what sets the tone for the whole Novel and you will enjoy it.
