Book Review - Let the Game Begin by Sandeep Sharma

Book Name: Let the Game Begin
Author: Sandeep Sharma
Publisher: Inspire India Publishers
Price: Rs. 165


Two kingdoms, Chaturanga and Sarprakt, separated by a mystic mountain range are at war with each other since ages. Chaturanga ruled by King Viratha, is soon bestowed with a dynamic heir, and the whole kingdom is drowned in rituals and festivity. On the other side, Sarprakt is executing a cruel conspiracy. King Viratha, crippled by the conspiracy, urges the mysterious man of the mountain to devise a method of recreate the conspiracy and that gave birth to 'The Game of Chess'.

Serial killings shock the nation as the police are rendered clueless. The killer leaves behind a trail of chess pieces with a strange message. Random people are murdered. Connoisseurs of different fields - History, Chess and the Security forces - have united as the next intended victim is the most powerful person of the country. How is Chess involved in the whole scenario? How will they find a man who died 4000 years ago? Can a person defy the laws of nature? Does history really repeat itself? Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.


'Let the Game Begin'- the title is intriguing. The blurb of this book has been excellently written.

The story covers up approximately 170 pages and each page promises you an awesome read. The story has the ability to keep you hooked on to the pages. The book is a real page turner.

The story has been narrated in 3rd person narrative. Author Sandeep has researched the history of chess very well. The plot has been thoughtfully crafted and characters sketched very well. The thrill has been maintained until the very end. Some incidents from the story gave me goosebumps.


  • The plot.
  • Book cover is amazing.

The wait for the next part - Let the hunt begin

I rate:
Cover: 4/5
Characters: 3.5/5
Story: 4/5

Overall, I rate 'Let the Game Begin' with 4/5 stars.
