First of all, hat's off to the author's for giving something out of the box to Indian reader's a science-fiction/fantasy, as in India we generally used to read love stories, campus stories or monotonous stories. Also I didn’t know the "meaning of the word Trivine" so I searched the site of this book and came to know the meaning which I am sharing with you all, the word “Trivine” is a portmanteau of the words “Tri” & “Divine” which signifies a team of three human beings & one divine being.”

The Prophecy of Trivine is a co-ordinated effort of three friends, generally where twins who are born with same mother whose ideas or views are different, while here we find three friend's who visualising similarly and implemented their ideas and what we got to read is an excellent work. The characters are beautifully created and well developed. Also, author's have so expertly put in their work to highlight various aspects of human emotion that ranges from love to hatred, from empathy to selfishness and compassion to greed. Also the writing is simple, where reader's wouldn’t really need to take assistance of a dictionary and flow is very fast.

The Prophecy of Trivine, is a sci-fi novel that follows the story of three men and an alien. The alien force's called Gucutep, according to the book these are the aliens who have created the mankind, and now they are contemplating to destroy the human race because the result of the creation aren’t as expected. But the youngest of all aliens Xona, who’s also the steward of the creation, objects to immediate termination and asks for extension.

Xona then travels the Earth and looks all around but she only finds disappointing results. Everywhere the human has only become the biggest enemy among themselves and are on a self-destructing mode.
Just when she’s convinced that the termination is inevitable, she finds three men in a forest who force her to re-think her decision. The first one is a scientist who pops-up pills instead of food and doesn’t mind putting his own life in line to conduct experiments whose name is Siv. The second one is a Phil, a wanted convict and an ethical hacker who is on the run because he is wanted in a scam. And the third one which is my favourite character Arty a jungle-boy who lives in jungle and likes to observe nature and paint. Because of this 3 human being Xona terminates the destruction of Planet Earth; I will not say how it is terminated. Just read this mind-blowing book, you will truly satisfy.  

This is certainly a page turner book. I will be looking forward to the sequel/s.

From the back cover of the book:

An emissary of an advanced alien race travels to the Earth to undertake responsibility of an experiment that has gone out of control. The outcome of this fateful experiment, which was conceived millions of years ago by her species, now rests in her hands. As she prepares to deliver her final judgement, she comes across three young men in a sacred forest who change her life forever.

These three men – a scientist, a hacker and an artist – happen to take refuge in that forest, trying to escape from the oddities of their own unfair lives. Struggling with their dreams and demons, they begin to explore the dark and paranormal behaviour of the forest by forging a companionship. From the rare flora and fauna breathing alive on the ground to the deadly wide expanse of the whimsy black sky, everything they find is yet another puzzle unsolved.

Little did they know that four of them hold in their hands the future of mankind, and much beyond imagination, they are connected through an ancient Prophecy that was long lost in the sands of time.
