"Naveen breathes a fresh air into Indian fiction with the first book of his Sinners trilogy which is one of a kind."
Founder, Inani Media
The world has ended.
It is prophesized that when sin reaches its pinnacle in kaliyuga, Kalki, the final avatar of Vishnu will descend upon earth to cleanse the world. Now, a mind-scrambling psychic wave from a child whom many believe to be Kalki, has caused unprecedented doom, heralding the apocalypse. The tattered ruins of the Indian wastelands are now populated with clueless survivors, dangerous factions and their grim motives.
Heroes rise and fall, men and monsters duel and humanity collapses in this radiation filled land of despair, dread, sharp claws, dull knives and old guns. Amid plots of treachery, betrayal, love, revenge and stark terror, the innocent and the wicked clash with and often among each other for survival.
Will those who survive, overcome these odds and their own inner demons? Or will they succumb to the wrath of the wastelands?
Because at the dawn of Kalki, death comes alike to both the saints and the sinners!

So, this review means all the more coming from me, because this book managed to do the unthinkable- it surprised me.
Reasons I picked up the book-
The interesting blurb and the intriguing cover design. Yes, I judge books by their covers. It gives you a glimpse into the author's mind and this one was extremely interesting. I don't want to say my observations. I want readers to analyze it and interpret it on their own.
I would say it's dystopian-mytho-sci-fi. You'll have to read it and come up with a better one.
The plot at first glance seemed simple enough. A post-apocalyptic India and how the people have divided into factions that have different agendas in order to survive. But what will surprise you is the intricate parallels of different character arcs and their motivations that come together to make this one hell of a story.
* Fast paced story line. At first I was a bit cynical that the story was moving too fast, but just after a few pages, you're hooked and you begin to understand where the author wanted to concentrate his story on.
* The descriptions by the author are absolutely jaw dropping. No, they are not detailed like Lord of the Rings or Game of Thrones, but the style of wordings used just bring up a horde of detailed images in your head. I got goosebumps at certain pages. They were that good.
* The character development is extremely well done. Though a relatively medium sized book, you can actually see the characters grow through their trials. This is extremely rare to find in new-age authors.
* The story line just flows so smoothly. There are no abrupt snags between the different character narrations and no plot holes.This was what surprised me the most, because a story this complex should have had some snags, but no. None.
* The extremely cool map and character sketches by the author on the inside of the front and back covers.
* The nerve-wrecking ending that will leave you wandering in post-apocalyptic India, demanding for the next book.
* A few editorial errors which were hopefully corrected in the next edition of the book.
* The inevitable wait for the much awaited second book...
After you finish the book, you get the feeling that this was a story that was always meant to be told and the author has just given it its perfect form and brought it to life. It is worth every penny you spend on it, plus, it looks really cool on the bookshelf!
I'll definitely be keeping an eye out for this author's future works.
unputdownable. Original and brilliant storytelling. The author helps your imagination with his arts and colourful landscapes. This definitely deserves a graphic novel format. Must say, this is one of the best books on mythological fiction so far. Trust me a reverse roller coaster ride would have been less thrilling than this. Read this. Now !
Based on post Apocalyptic Dystopian prophecy, Sinners is an interesting saga unveiled by Naveen. The book has an engaging blurb and even more interesting book cover. I wouldn't say that it is a well researched book but rather a very well thought book.
It starts off with the world facing the Dark age with the advent of Kalyug. The sudden deaths of the prisoners, guard, celebrities certainly gives a feeling of death note. Like it's a judgement day and everyone is being punished for their sins by an invisible power. There are fire purges everywhere. Humanity is on the verge of disappearance and people are divided into factions of Sinners, Sinless, Forgiven, wild and many more. Each struggling and fighting each day for survival and power.
The storytelling and narrative is fast paced and smooth. The character development is strong and sketches at the end and beginning of the insides of the book cover help establish them strongly. By the end of the book there is a yearning for the next book which is a sign of a remarkable writing.
Naveen is a new age writer and has an arresting spark in his work. He definitely has a huge task on his shoulder to level up the Indian writing. Considering the fact that majority Indian writers are held up by cliche romantic novels which lack in content. I am definitely looking forward to the second book of the trilogy, Sinners.
Recommended for :
I would recommend this novel to anyone who has interest in Mythology Fiction and Thriller. To the new readers. To those readers who are looking forward to novel by an Indian Author which is not a cliche love story.
Readers, especially who like mythical fiction, should go for it.
