Book Review : Neverfound Land by Durriya Kapasi

Today, we bring to you one more book review; yes we know it has been raining book reviews from past months but we cannot keep the learning’s and lessons learnt from the book to ourselves. Books are key ingredient of our life as our life revolves around experiences and we bring to know our book experiences to you all.

Let us look at the sequel of  “Once Upon a Time Genie” by Duriyya Kapasi titled as “Neverfound Land”. You can have look at Once Upon A Time Genie review here.

Book Title & Cover: Neverfound Land by Durriya Kapasi

The cover of the book is quite different from the prequel as you see no characters here, but two swords in a cross manner, that indicates that entry is not for everyone. This symbol goes well with the title too. Lets see what inside the book.

About the Author: 
Durriya Kapasi is a Creative Writing Teacher, a foodie and a traveller. She is a cancer survivor and now she also supports and motivates cancer patients. Born in India and now she is best selling author with debut novel. Half Baked Beans have said it on social media that this series has bagged a screen adaptation rights. I can now truly see what I imagined the Neverfound Land by reading the books.

The Magical Plot:

The story is about Solomon, who is a hybrid of Genie and human; his worries start, as he is unaware of his powers and how slowly he recognizes them. The need of an hour makes him to know about his birth and his existence. Solomon who is braving the consequences alone finds hope in his Uncle Azeez, kind doctor Sheik Ibrahim who is treating Solomon’s mother Daisy.

Solomon discovers his truth when he is on holiday trip to Cairo with his friends but rushes to home leaving trip in midway as he gets kidnapped and that is when he realizes his powers.

He comes home to find that, Genie enemies Rasmasa’s are kidnapping his father Darren and his mother is ill. How he gathers strength and goes to Neverfound Land and meets his real father Genie and understands the reason for all the current sequences. How he manage to work with his powers and how he leads the team for the war against enemies to protect the humanity is enthralling read.

What I love in this book:

Anyone can read this book without worrying about the prequel of the book as author has very well described the previous Once Upon A time genie story in such a crisp way but still describing all events in the epilogue of the book.

Both the books are independent where readers can enjoy both the books solely too. But I am sure whoever reads one of the book will surely pick the other.

Author Durriya Kapasi mesmerized readers with her words that though you read the book from your living room you feel you have entered the Neverfound Land.

What to look into this book:

·      Beautiful description of the Genie land once again but with Solomon’s point of view
·      Each character crosses the dilemma bridge to protect his family from unseen enemies is inventively present in the book.
·      Emotions are artistically captured and well essayed by the author.

Final Word: 
Go grab this book to enter the fantasy land and see how Genie, human and Solomon takes over to save the humanity with the twists and unwrap the tale with exotically well described narration by author. This book is for people who has high imagination skills and believe in fantasies.
