Imprisonment of a couple in the Dwapar Yug and the creation of magnetism at Sun temple in Konark has a great deal of linkage to a missing boy in the 13th century carrying the mightiest power of the universe that transcends in time across generations leading to an alleged rape and murder accusation to the story’s protagonist, an investment banker Shashank Chaudhary in 2008 who flies from New York to Odisha to find himself trapped in an 800 years old enigma. A biological allegory that unfolds a historical and mythological mystery that counts back in time as far as the epic Mahabharata. One that surpasses time and the material world with its mathematical calculations within physical elements. Unexplainable evidences, puzzling data, conspiracy theories and unheard secrets intermingle with one another to create plots in the history of time that have been startling scientists and mythologists to date. It’s now in the court room that he must face his worst fears and probably the world’s greatest held secret, a rare phenomenon of a chromosomal defect, from an unexpected guest.
The LazyScoop Review:
The Book’s Size, cover and overall design look attractive. It’s small and compact size made it easy to hold and felt good in hands.
The Cover is beautiful with red and blue tint depicting an ancient temple, a wheel and the tag line- ‘A crime planned 800 years ago.’
I liked the narrative style of the Author. The language is lucid and flowy. The mythological mysterious touch to it enhanced its grasping power. The way the story intertwines different timelines and the thrilling situations which unfold, made the whole plot more and more interesting, it made me wonder what’s going to happen next constantly.
The character of Shashankh Chaudhary seemed well designed. His thoughts are well described, which makes the readers connect with him.
Overall, Wheels of Wish is a wonderful book about Historical Fiction. Since there are so less novels on Historical Fiction, this one stands out among usual Fiction.
