Review

Kevin Missal has given the age-old Sinbad tale a delightful spin. Beware, this fast-paced, adrenaline-pumping adventure is going to rob you of your sleep -- Anand Neelakantan --This text refers to the paperback edition.

About the Author

Kevin Missal is the author of the national bestselling Kalki trilogy. He has also written the Narasimha trilogy and Raavanputr Meghnad, along with establishing his own marketing agency called HubHawks that caters to authors. He immensely enjoys the look on people's faces when they find out that he's done all of this at the tender age of twenty-four. That too without an MBA. Kevin resides in Gurugram in a library that he lovingly calls 'my room'. When he's not reading or writing, he loves to interact with his readers on his social media handles (Instagram: kevin_9695 and Twitter: kevin_missal). --This text refers to the paperback edition.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not a good way to tell a story
By sandhyahirlekar on 23 May 2021
Dear Kevin
You are the first Indian author whose book I purchased.Till date I had firmly believed that no Indian could tell a good story in English .My friends tried so hard to convince me otherwise .But I was stubborn and muleheaded and the Chetan Bhagats and Amish ,Ashwin sanghis of this world would not and could not sway me.
Than while browsing on Amazon I came across your book. Sindabad is my all time favourite character and curious to know how you would tell his tale I bought it .Also the beautiful cover tugged at my heart. The book was delivered on 20th may and I took it up for reading the same night .I read the first chapter titled 4 yrs ago then came the second titled present day .Ok fine so far so good .Now came the third chapter it was again 4 yrs ago.It is at this point I stopped reading and went through the book till the end .And to my horror the same pattern continues till the end . I have been a book reader for more than 44 yrs and never have I come across such a style of telling a story .You get but 1 chance to hold the reader in a grip .If you cannot get him in the first 2 chapters and he puts the book down ,chances are it will be a long time before he will pick that book again or maybe he will completely drop it .I bought your book as a present for my grand niece .and I don't let her read anything that I have not read myself If your target reader for this book is between 9 and 12 yrs of age how do you hope to hold there attention till the end of the book . Today's youngster has an attention span of a mosquito flipping from here to there in matter of seconds. You expect them to read a book with a past continuous and present continuous storyline . Don't you think it's a tall order . A book should have a prologue ,a good storyline the seeds of which are sowed in the prologue and ends with an epilogue that ties up all the loose ends . Nobody likes to read a story that keeps breaking at the end of each chapter .As I said before I put the book down after first 2 chapters .I don't know when I will pick it up again .I have no complaints as far as language goes .You can write in English
As a writer you have a lot of growing up to do . You can tell a story that much I could derive that from the 2 chapters I read but you need to work on your style of story telling taking into account the target reader and his changing faster than the weather attention span The 1 star is for the book cover and the good language of the first 2 chapters.I will write about the story and merits of the book after I have finished the book . Best luck with your second venture in this series

Regards
Sandhya

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the greatest YA fantasies from India
By Abhishek Mishra on 23 March 2021
I was sceptical of picking this book because most of the YA fantasies I've ever read are an average read at best. But Kevin Missal is one of my favourite Indian author so I decided to read it. And it is an amazing fresh take on a popular character of Arabian Nights.

📚📚📚📚
Two stories run in parallel.
In first, a 12 year old Sinbad is an apprentice of Master Reis, a seid (a guild of monster hunters). He encounters a young girl Safeena who is destined to be the weapon of Devil. Sinbad sees innocence in the girl and decides to save her while being conflicted in his feelings about his master.

In second, 16 year old Sinbad works as an independent Seid. He is tasked to prevent Safeena from blowing the Trumpet of Israfil which would end the world. He and his group of friends has 7 days to save the world. How he manages to do that is the whole plot.

📚📚📚📚

What I like:

☑️As usual with Kevin's novels, there are a lot of characters but each one is perfectly written to be memorable.

☑️The novel is fast paced but is doesn't feels rushed.

☑️The humor in the dialogues never seems forced.

☑️The cover design and formatting is superb. This book deserves hardback, dust-jackets and sprayed edges.

What I didn't like:

🚫I prefer descriptive world-building like in The Hobbit. It was not there.

🚫Some scenes describing guild and monsters give you a feeling of Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Infact the monster baby plot was taken straight out of the game. I don't like when these happen.

Overall, the YA fantasy genre is not much explored by Indian authors, so it was a promising read. I'll definitely read more books in this series.
