Seeing the blurb, cover and the praises in the description I was honestly pretty excited to read the book. In past such type of books have been really good for ex, Nation At War Series which is one of my fav by Varun Tejwani. You can check out reviews for the same on my website.
Apart from that, the book honestly felt like a cross hybrid between a military weapons encyclopedia and your typical 90's bollywood classic. That's the best I can describe without much revelation of the plot. I am a reader of political thrillers but here the story didn't grab my attention at all. Surely, it was a fast paced and the descriptions along with some gore were quite to the point but it didn't connect at all.
It felt maybe too fast to get in sync with the plot or maybe it was boring, I really can't say. I somehow managed to finish it as it was quite predictable. The author truly states that it is indeed a reflection of the world we are living in right now. It felt like someone just edited real life news too much and just mixed it up really good with a lot of conspiracy theories that are always roaming around in the political realm.
In a gist if you love your typical and very predictable bollywood 'war' thriller you'd love this new flavour but there's nothing much to it unless you are extremely into knowing about new weapons and tactics.
