Blog Tour: THE PROPHECY OF TRIVINE by Tnahsin Garg, Srivatsan Sridharan & Pulkit Gupta

The Prophecy of Trivine 
 Tnahsin Garg,  Srivatsan Sridharan and  Pulkit Gupta

An emissary of an advanced alien race travels to the Earth to undertake responsibility of an experiment that has gone out of control. The outcome of this fateful experiment, which was conceived millions of years ago by her species, now rests in her hands. As she prepares to deliver her final judgment, she comes across three young men in a sacred forest who change her life forever. 
These three men- a scientist, a hacker and an artist, happen to take refuge in that forest, trying to escape from the oddities of their own unfair lives. Struggling with their dreams and demons, they begin to explore the dark and paranormal behavior of the forest by forging a companionship. From the rare flora and fauna breathing alive on the ground to the deadly wide expanse of the whimsy black sky, everything they find is yet another puzzle unsolved. 
Little did they know that four of them hold in their hands the future of mankind and much beyond imagination, they are connected through an ancient Prophecy that was long lost in the sands of time

I have seen a few sci-fi films but this is probably my first book in that genre. First, I would like to congratulate the authors - Tnahsin Garg, Srivatsan Sridharan & Pulkit Gupta - on such a tremendous achievement at so young an age. 

The story begins quite interestingly with the hacker and his flight from the police. Phil has been hacking for a reason but has no choice but to escape the powers that be. He runs into the wild forest not too far away from his college hostel. 

There he meets Siv, a scientist who prefers being alone in the wilderness. Siv is kind of a brilliant but eccentric scientist who reminds one of Dr. Jekyll to begin with. Soon, we know he is quite different. Phil stays in Siv’s shack in the forest despite the latter’s disapproval. They grow used to each other. 

Suddenly, Arty comes into their lives. It’s surprising for Siv as he has lived in the forest for months without meeting a single other human being. Arty is the calm one who meditates a lot. Who is he? And what was he doing in the forest? He appears completely attuned to nature. 

The story revolves around the three men and the strange adventures they get into along with the advent of a fourth person - Agni. Agni is a red-haired beauty who steps into their lives quite unexpectedly. What was a young woman doing in the forest all by herself? Was it a safe place? 

I am not going to say anything more in case I let out spoilers.

A lot of research has gone into this work and the story is seamless despite three guys writing it. A special kudos for that! The story makes for an interesting read revolving around the personal histories of the four characters and what they are doing in the forest. The description of the forest and how alive nature is has been beautifully brought out in the book. 

The story is obviously a build up for more to come and the mystery has been well maintained. I am looking forward to reading a sequel soon.

What I would have liked is a tighter editing that could have made the story a crisper and sharper read. Since that’s not the fault of the authors, I go with 4 stars for this Sci-fi novel. All the best to the authors Tnahsin Garg, Srivatsan Sridharan & Pulkit Gupta that their debut novel is well received all over the world.  

I have to mention that I loved the cover. It's perfect for this Sci-Fi book.
