As kids, we thought grown-ups had so much fun. How we wished we could grow up fast. If only we knew what we were wishing for. Three pieces of a soul, they'd call themselves soul sisters and this is their journey, a journey through the lives of three best friends who accidentally reunite after a decade long disconnection. A round of startling revelations later, the three realize that life is indeed unpredictable. However, in this world of uncertainty, there is just one thing they can still be sure of their friendship! With secrets confessed, pain shared, tears shed and troubles discussed, they help find answers to each other's problems, just like old times. Each has a lesson to learn from the other, a story to tell, a reason to say 'I'm sorry' and a reason to say 'Thank you'. Has destiny brought them together to complete the picture? Will they succeed in finding the missing pieces? Can every twist of fate be interpreted in just one way? Join Sharvari Joshi, Parizaad Sethna and Nandini Mazumdar in a nostalgic journey from girlhood to womanhood. 'Twists of Fate' promises to be a roller coaster ride of emotions that will captivate the reader's heart and leave him pondering on life, fate and all its conspiracies.

Tout de suite, I was bowled over by the mastery over the language and the brilliant vein in which Mumbai was described in the prologue. The trio of characters have been wonderfully portrayed; they are complicated and layered, yet very easy to relate to. I couldn't help recalling the characterization which I have used in my debut novel and reflect how I could have genuinely enhanced it whilst perusing Twists of Fate.
I couldn't locate any grammar mistakes in the book. The language, as mentioned heretofore, is exceptional, neither too colloquial, nor too clunky. The story is extremely captivating, oodles of twists and turns, non-linear mostly, and quite emotional in places. The reader gets immersed in the story instantly, experiencing a multitude of emotions en route. Priyanka has maintained a perfect balance between dialogues and narration. Usage of Hindi words is minimal - how it should be, so that when they appear they feel extremely apt for the situation. Instead of cheesy shayaris, beautiful snippets of poems are employed, adding grace and class to the novel. Withal, The plot is very realistic and unlike any stilted Bollywood script.
Finally, I would like to say that skillful and talented authors like Priyanka Naik - who have worked assiduously on their script - need to be encouraged and supported instead of mass audience targeting authors - who don't work hard on their script and employ poor language, disgusting grammar, and juvenile narration skills. I would rate this splendid effort 4.8/5. The 2 points I have reduced is because, as an upcoming author myself, I have the right to be hyper-critical ;). Priyanka could have described the environment also in a few more places (like the weather, condition of the room, place etc.), instead of directly commencing with the story, especially in the beginning of a few chapters. She has described environments so magically in a few places; she could have used it more; I relish such parts, lends a magical, literary feel to the situation. Nonetheless, an impeccable literary masterpiece by the author - substantially better than efforts by even popular bestselling authors of our time. Will pre-order her next book, indubitably. Cheers!
Twists of Fate is a wonderful read. It portrays varies emotions in simple words. Kudos Priyanka for that.
The description of places made me travel and the characters fit beautifully in the story. The cohesiveness throughout the end makes it a complete narration.
One word to best describe the book “Soulful”. Thanks Priyanka for the lovely book and looking forward to read your next one soon.
This story does not try to be all mushy mushy but have got a touch of reality. The reality we face in our day-to-day life, sometimes quite a bitter one.
This story restores our faith in the superpower sometimes called as fate, that it cares about us and is there to help us make our lives happy and joyful. But at the same time warns as, though the fate may be ready to help us, we too need to exercise our free will and take that 'one step' from our side.
May this book inspire every of its reader to have the courage to take that 'one step'.
Simple, clear style combined with positive emotions create a great reading experience!
Knowing the dear author also helps :) inspite of all the bias...well done Priyanka I am uber proud of you and that Twists of Fate finally happened and waiting for the second .. third and many more books to be added to your kitty and you reach way up there..Much Love :)
Not just a good read for women, it inspires the mind of all those who are caught up in the twists of fate. The book teaches us that we must face each obstacle in life with courage and a smile :)
Thank you Priyanka! Look forward to your next book :D
