Synopsis :

In the land of Gods, the arrival of a vigilante stormed the silence. He was brutally used and harassed by God’s. His emotions and sentiments were toyed with.

The most powerful god, Agusthus, feels crippled before him. He targets everyone responsible for his state. He drains Agusthus by slaughtering his son. He exhausts Moira, daughter of Agusthus, by killing her brother before her eyes. He breaks Castle Gray, the only one capable of stopping him, by cursing his love into a cold bloodless stone. He weakens the powerful Queen Iris, Gray’s mother, and enslaves her husband. He certainly has no opponent. However, no one targets him. He is so silent and precise that no one buys the fact that the vigilante, who was cursed and killed long ago, is somehow back. Hence, the time waits for the birth of the last hope left to save the world from the wrath of the demon. Time waits for Martin Krooger .

Review :

Silent earth in the stagnant night/              And the trees that shed the visible light/ Waited for the God in glory/                             To reveal the untold story.  

This book as altogether given us a different way of presenting the makers of us – Humans.

According to the world as set by the author, the ones whom we dedicate our faith to – the Gods, are better known as Agrians, creatures living in a different frequency than the Humans. 

The story begins with the sudden appearance of an unknown man in the deserted streets of human earth. No-one knows where from he has come. He just appeared out of the air and announced the need to speak out the truth of Agrians and Eva to the then fast asleep Eva. He wishes to let Eva understand everything once she is wide awake. Moira and Gray stood alert, for they feared, if the truth be out, troubles will increase. Why were they so much concerned about not letting the truth out? Who was the man? The man was Agusthus. He had decided upon exposing to the Eva the main reason of Agrians to have made the Earth. He revealed that it was not just his love but the need to feed on the energy of the Eva that they had been created.

The truth was scary; the truth was violent. When the Eva gets to know everything will shatter. Agusthus went back to his Earth after finishing the tale. The Eva woke up but nothing happened. She is still unaware of the truth.

But one is aware of all the wrong doings, all is aware of all the pain. He is the one who seeks vengeance, he is the one who is going to destroy the Agrians. 

The story is beautiful and dangerous. This story is different and the concept is unique. Here Adam & Eve are not outcasted.  Eve is killed, Adam is tortured, love is at stake. Adam makes the promise of destroying every Agrian, he promises to make him feel his pain. 

The author has a good hand of composing poems. Each chapter starts with a poem which descriptions, in short, the contents of the chapter. And the long one at the middle of the story of beautiful. It is narrated by Adam who describes his life story and the pain he has gone through and seeks the answer to what should be done.

However, at some places, I found the conversations pointless as well as unwanted. Also, through out the book, one can feel the author facing lose of words to express what he desires to. A reader gets confused in a few chapters, as the narration is uncertain and the description scattering.

The story ends with the hope, of the rise of the one who is going to make it all right. The Agrians wait for the emergence of Martin Krooger.
