Earth Sentinels definitely stands out for the plot. The plot is fantastic and the way it has been treated makes for an interesting read. What I like about the treatment is the fact that the author has chopped the story into small blocks, so you are not caught up in too many intricacies and webs of the plot. You are able to move into the story gradually and fully involved, which I thought was a really clever narration. Had it not been for this level of narration, the reader would have gotten lost because there are so many characters and individual stories. It would have been difficult to catch up with each character.
The story moves at a great speed and the language is beautiful as well. While the first half introduces the entire characters, the second half is where the actual story comes into full bloom and does so pretty interestingly. In spite of telling a complex story, involving a lot of characters, I felt the author eased the readers into the plot very delicately and kept it intriguing.
I still don’t know how to describe the book. In spite of being filled with fantasy elements and mystical worlds, it is very much real and intertwined with the modern world. A great thought process is definitely visible in the story.
The book for one has a pretty unique and interesting storyline with a good technique in narration. It does not burden you with the plot and details. In fact, the author has made it quite an easy read with an intelligent treatment in my opinion. The book definitely makes for an interesting read.
