Let The Game Begin By Sandeep Sharma

Name : Let The Game Begin ( Paperback)
Author : Sandeep Sharma
Publisher : Inspire India
Pages : 180

This is the first time I'm reading a Sandeep Sharma's Novel. I must say Author did a really great job, The story is about the two warring kingdoms, Sarprakt and Chaturanga. Chaturanga was a fertile and prosperous land whereas Sarprakt was land plagued by poverty and hunger. But Sarprakt had an ambitious king who wished to capture the land of Chaturanga over a mysterious mountain that separates the two lands. The king of Chaturanga finally bears an illustrious son who was destined to become a great warrior, is trained by his own father. But the king, an overprotective father does not entirely believe the prophecy and trains four more of his country’s best warriors to form the Panchdhar, a battle formation which would protect his son at the cost of the four others. But in Sarprakt, a deadly conspiracy is being hatched to murder the only son of the king of Chaturanga and thus invade over the kingdom. Finally, the plan comes into action and the prince is killed in war as his fellows betray him. The king falls into depression and something gets inside him, a curse, that beckons him to kill people all around to find who killed his son. He is introduced to the game of chess a mysterious immortal man to replay the scene at the battlefield. The story goes on like that interwoven with the present which was something that I really liked.
Back to the present, a couple of characters are involved as a sudden ‘Chess Murderer’ is going around on a killing spree, murdering seemingly unconnected people but leaving behind a chess piece and a box along with a note in a strange language. As bodies begin to pile up, several characters come into the scene namely Surya, Pratham and Dinesh Gandhi. The story continues as 4000 year old characters are reborn in the present and there’s one with the ‘curse’ who is going around killing the men who had conspired to kill his son.

I do not wish to reveal further as it would destroy the entire story itself. It is a must read for all thriller lovers!!

About The Book: Two kingdoms, Chaturanga and Sarprakt, separated by a mystic mountain range are at war with each other since ages. Chaturanga, ruled by King Viratha, is soon bestowed with a dynamic heir, and the whole kingdom is drowned in rituals and festivity. On the other side, Sarprakt is executing a cruel conspiracy. King Viratha, crippled by the conspiracy, urges the mysterious man of the mountain to devise a method to recreate the conspiracy and that gave birth to 'The Game of Chess'. Serial killings shock the nation as the police are rendered clueless. The killer leaves behind a trail of chess pieces with a strange message. Random people are murdered. Connoisseurs of different fields - History, Chess and the Security forces - have united as the next intended victim is the most powerful person of the country. How is Chess involved in the whole scenario? How will they find a man who died 4000 years ago? Can a person defy the laws of nature? Does history really repeat itself? Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.
