Hell! No Saints in Paradise by A.K. Asif | Book Review


2050, New York. In the aftermath of a gruelling spiritual cleansing quest, Ismael, a Pakistani-American student, enters into an alliance with spiritual beings who send him on a perilous journey of self-discovery. A non-believer, Ismael must return to Pakistan, now in the grip of a brutal fundamentalist government, and gain the trust of his estranged father, a prominent extremist in the Caliphate. To accomplish this, he must pose as a true believer. Will he survive long enough to infiltrate his father's inner sanctum and complete his mission? Hell! No Saints in Paradise is both biting satire and allegory that takes urban fantasy to dizzying heights.

The characters are rich and real and the author's ability to tie in real history just makes it more intriguing. The storyline is interesting and the portion where three of the main characters are interacting is very interesting and well written. The story is excellent, and the plot brought me to examine my own life.

The concept of the book is very good and started off well. However, after a point it seemed a bit draggy and monotonous. The writing really appeals to me and I loved how the book  had a satisfying ending. This book was a real page turner. It has just enough true aspects to make the entire story seem real. When I had to put it down, I could hardly wait to get back to it. This work is truly a masterpiece. I will be looking to read more from the author of this book. I highly recommend. You will not be disappointed.
