The Swift Summary– Series of events are happening in the country.

If this villain gets up the humanity is at stake and there is only one person who can save humanity from this threat that is Slash. Keeping an eye on all the activities are like the yin and yang. There are other characters in the story like Major Khanna, Council, Slash’s friend and the Soldier who will help Slash and is the mythological superhero.
Why is Slash, a 19 year old girl the chosen one? Will she be able to defeat world’s greatest villain? What is the actual motive behind all this awakening?
Read this fantasy, suspense novel to get the answers.
My View-   The story revolves around something supernatural which is related to religion and history. ON the other hand in the fast running busy life a teenage girl meets with a life threatening accident only to be saved by someone who wants her to save the humanity from the arising extremely dangerous villain. The plot is new and fresh. The chapters are small and the story is grasping enough.
The best part is the reader feel attached because the story always unfolds a dramatic and magical turn.
The language is simple and explanation is vivid. The book is a must read for all those who love super-heroes and believe in super natural activities.
