“Don’t worry. You will know. If not, we will meet again.”
A riveting thriller, Fate of Eight tells the story of eight people whose lives are entwined through the three key milestones of one’s life: birth, marriage and death.
Diya, Mira, Pratima and Radhika are four strong women, each embodying a trait designed by God herself. Their destinies are linked to the unique personalities of four other men-Venkat, Guru, Jagdambe and Rahim. Birth, marriage and death are the common destiny points for this chosen group of eight, the only condition God sets out for their souls. What happens in between is a saga of choice and fate. They all cross each other’s path in the course of their lives-as lovers, spouses, siblings, friends, sworn enemies. Some relationships last for life and some break off in between. And not all survive the trials of destiny.
Who amongst the eight will be linked together in the final destination of death? Who will have the true love that lasts forever? Where does God’s plan finally lead to?
An absolute page-turner, Fate of Eight is a gripping story of human relationships and fate, of success and failure, culminating into a murder and a thrilling search for the killer!
* I received the book by the publisher in exchange of an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are unbiased. *
Fate of Eight, is one of the few thrillers that surprised me in the year 2020. I am not a big fan of thrillers but this book really grasped my attention to the fullest! As the synopsis states, the book revolves around eight people who are interlinked by destiny. On their life journey they encounter many hardships and search for truth.
The plot was really diverse and yet very gripping. It was quite charming on it’s own and did not have to depend on characters or any other elements to shine. I really was not expecting it to be one of those plot which would always keep me on my toes. But, I was proved wrong!
“She saw herself as these waves, never ready to give up, always unpredictable, and going a few inches higher up the sand dune on the beach every now and then.”
The characters were quite interesting as well. I liked the character developments throughout. It was quite smooth and well paced as well.
The writing style was a little out of the place. It took me some time to get along with it however, I believe the author has a long way ahead to improve his writing as it just needs a little more polishing.
Honestly, I loved this book so much that I really want to tell you all about the breathtaking plot twists, fierce new characters and many new heartwarming beginnings that this phenomenal book deals with! But, instead of revealing all of it I want you to read and find out instead.
