Beyond a mysterious journey ( spirits of time book 1) by Madhuparna Suman

It is a story of a young couple Nandini and Neelkand who decide to go to a different place for a vacation to escape the daily grind. They pick Georgia for its beautiful landscapes, castles and history. The couple wanted to have a relaxing trip discovering a foreign country eating it’s cusine, meeting new people. However something keeps troubling Nandini with strange things. Will they have the vacation of thier dreams or will it turn into a nightmare?

Being a Stephen King fan I’m always excited to read anything in the supernatural genre.
The plot is slow in the first half of the book and picks up pace once the couple reach Georgia. I had to force myself to read the first 50% of the book, but the second half was so interesting that I couldn’t keep the book down. The characters of Neel and Nandini are decently developed. I liked how the author has combined a mini travelogue along with supernatural elements. Even though the language is simple, grammatical mistakes made it difficult to understand the story completely. This can easily be corrected with better editing, which will make reading this book so much more enjoyable.Overall a good book with an interesting concept by an Indian author. I’m looking forward to reading the next book in this series. Recommend for fans of horror/ supernatural/ fantasy/thriller genre.
