The year is 2118. The first journey from Earth into interstellar space has been successful, but the explosive secret carried aboard the probe Voyager 1 will have grave consequences.

As Captain Anara and her crew return to Earth aboard their spaceship, Antariksh, civil war breaks out in the world they have just left behind. A cryptic message warns her of the dispatch of mercenaries to Earth. Their mission – unknown but deadly. She may have just days to prevent the outbreak of an interstellar war which would bring unimaginable carnage to Earth.

Her crew and the National Investigation Agency, engage in the greatest undercover search for the mercenaries in the streets of the megacity. As they race against time to uncover the plot, a traitor is unmasked, and Anara herself comes under suspicion. She must use every ounce of her resourcefulness to protect thirty million people and one unique, innocent life.

Immerse yourself in an edge of the seat techno-thriller on a realistic future Earth and geek out on the technology just a few decades away from today.


Earth To Centauri: Alien Hunt is a craftily written sci-fi that opens the doors to a whole new world of thrill and enigma.

It contains everything – adventure, thrill, emotions, silence, and fantasy. It is a marvelous product of author’s literary prowess and praiseworthy inclination towards science. The space with all those spaceships, unimaginable beings, black holes, galaxy and everything that could not fit into our imagination has been developed and expressed very well. The novel draws the scenario of several years after from now. The way author envisages it engaged me.

It talks about Antariksh becoming the first spaceship from earth to make a journey to interstellar space and reach the planet HuZyrss, in the Alpha Centauri star system,  four light-years from earth. After decades of searching, humankind had made contact with an alien civilization. The explanation revolving around any planet that has the necessary ingredients for life – water, oxygen, and a suitable temperature – would eventually be giving rise to living organisms is amazing. The only variable would be time, measured in eons, and possibly external factors that resulted in a particular species becoming dominant. The narrative silhouettes the friendship between human beings and the aliens.

The complete story doesn’t swallow you. In fact, bit by bit, you are drowned in the parallel universe. The author had given a lot of thought to penning it down. It reflects as we proceed further in the book.

The arresting narrative pulls you into the land of KifrWyss, HuZyrss, Truekif and our very dear Mother Earth. The author’s command over language is excellent. He exploits it well to bring out a subtle piece of informative literature on paper. The whole idea itself behind the novel is outstanding.

I would recommend this book to anyone who is a lot interested in sci-fi.
