MY REVIEW:

After spinning its wheels in Earth to Centauri, Book 1, Kumar’s novel becomes a chilling tale that’s hard to shake. The exuberant characters and swift pace, this book has more to offer than Book 1, while in that it was just about giving ideas to the readers more like plot building and educating readers with the various astronomical terminologies and how things works. Such meticulous research, such love for all things geek, an exhilarating plot, breakneck pacing and phenomenal concept of space Opera. This book has an edge of the seat action.

It's got everything you need in a great science fiction, like the space opera concept which is new to Indian Literature, this is full of action/adventure, joyous moment, greediness, One can see how the future is going to be in the earth, advanced technology, how teamwork is a great formula in destroying the evil. With the tremendous pace you just wish to go on reading. The science with the techno thriller is decent for the plot to make the story credible and interesting.

Overall, an another Sharp mystery in a continually improving series. The book itself is a simple delight to read. The story is well paced and keeps you riveted from cover to cover. I can't just wait to read Black Hole: Oblivion.
