Jean Angel by Atul Mohite is a fantasy fiction novella set in the kingdom of Zesia. It focuses on a prophecy that states that the cruel ruler of Zesia would be killed by somebody special. There is his queen who never got love from her husband and falls in love with a nobody. She wants to escape the clutches of the King and so does she.
The novella essentially contemplates on the emergence of good to annihilate the evil. And to fulfill this purpose, we have our hero Jean. But there is a lot of story behind his existence and purpose. Everything would be revealed to him after 15 years of birth in the land of Kala Nagari. Would he be able to fulfill the prophecy?
The author has woven a simple story with a hero and the devil. The plotline wasn’t unique that instantly pulled me off from the book. The characters are sketched well and ample attention is given to each of them keeping the length of the book in mind. However, the story didn’t give out that fantasy vibe to me. The thrill and intrigue were amiss. The language is pretty easy but not exactly suitable for the setting of a fantasy plot. Moreover, the book had proofreading errors seemingly interrupting a reader’s experience.
A few instances remained inadequately explained in a book that ultimately ended on a cliffhanger. I would want to read the next part to see if our hero Jean can pull off the show.
