“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!

“The ability to keep a secret was an Archer family trait.”

Cadence Archer arrives on Harvard’s campus desperate to understand why her brother, Eric, a genius who developed paranoid schizophrenia took his own life there the year before. Losing Eric has left a black hole in Cady’s life, and while her decision to follow in her brother’s footsteps threatens to break her family apart, she is haunted by questions of what she might have missed. And there’s only one place to find answers.

As Cady struggles under the enormous pressure at Harvard, she investigates her brother’s final year, armed only with a blue notebook of Eric’s cryptic scribblings. She knew he had been struggling with paranoia, delusions, and illusory enemies—but what tipped him over the edge? With her suspicions mounting, Cady herself begins to hear voices, seemingly belonging to three ghosts who walked the university’s hallowed halls—or huddled in its slave quarters. Among them is a person whose name has been buried for centuries, and another whose name mankind will never forget.

Does she share Eric’s illness, or is she tapping into something else? Cady doesn’t know how or why these ghosts are contacting her, but as she is drawn deeper into their worlds, she believes they’re moving her closer to the truth about Eric, even as keeping them secret isolates her further. Will listening to these voices lead her to the one voice she craves—her brother’s—or will she follow them down a path to her own destruction?

A Harvard freshman becomes obsessed with her schizophrenic brother’s suicide. Then she starts hearing voices.
