The cover of the book is so amazing. A great work done by THE BOOK BAKERS. The cover is so attractive that one cannot stop himself or herself from buying it. I got this book as a prize for a contest.
I never believed that someday I would love reading thriller too. It was something unexpected but the book “THE SERPENTINE SCROLLS” by ALCATRAZ DEY changed my perspective. I loved this book totally. An amazing thriller I must say actually. From the first page I was falling for the book and as the book ended I was totally in love with it. Once you start reading it you will wish to close only when the story ends. In short it was a well researched book. The description of places totally proves it. Alcatraz has done justice with the characters too. The words Hannah said for religion and humanity are so logical. You cannot deny with any one of them. Ihsin character was also portrait well. And why only of Hannah and Ihsin. The character of  Sara, Jabbar, Vish, Abidah and Shahid are also presented in a proper manner. One can find many emotions in a single book. Mystery, Thriller, Passion, Desires all are present in one book. There were so many turns in the book and one will always be excited to know what will happen next. The book has a deep meaning inside it. You may find many books on love friendship but book like The Serpentine Scrolls is truly different amazing.. The plot of the book is unique .  The book will make you guess many things but sometimes you will see  totally a different thing and you will more curious.

A must read book for all thriller lovers but a special message for the people who haven’t try thriller trust me and begin with THE SERPENTINE SCROLLS.

My rating for the book : 4.5/5.
