"Tapasya" starts somewhere in a story, that winds forward whilst catching up with the past.
It draws you forward with intrigue and suspense, as there always seems to be some information being brought out, throughout the story.
It moves onwards without leaving you wondering about the next part, and delivers twists and turns that keep you locked in all the time.
Somewhat frustratingly, you find yourself immersed in the story and wish the characters could do more to help themselves.
The world opens up and without a map it sometimes visualisation is lost as the story winds far across the land.
Great writing style to keep the story moving and created in such a way that a sequel hopefully is not long away.
Any readers of Dune can relate to the idea of life changes and the style that this follows. All ideas here are not copied and very different, but the reader can relate mentally to how strange hostile lands can bring many risks, problems, issues and fights.
There are lots of different aspects to this story to appeal to the heart, the mind, and the intellect without lingering on any parts unnecessaruly/
A very good read throughout and worth the time.
