My Opinion: This is the first book of mine from this authors and I must say it was truly good work. The narration is absolutely good with the technical details and that too in a very simple way for the readers to grasp it without losing interest in the book.

The story is fast pacing and keeps the readers glued to it until the first explosion occurs. Afterwards, it slopes down and gets bit sluggish but not for long. The author had taken all its time to calm the nerves of readers before you hit the adrenaline pumping climax.

Though climax was not up to what I expected, it was really good still. What I felt was a need of few more words to the climax and that would have justified the hard work of the authors. The characters in the story are well groomed and a near to accurate described. 

A must-read book for those who are searching for something other than love tales. A whirlpool of emotions is all you can feel in this book. I really finished the book in just five days, keeping all my work aside. A good book to be in your collection.
