Thriller - Caged by Onaiza Khan

Onaiza Khan when she first sent me friend request on GoodReads, I thought she must be a book-lover like me. But I didn't expected a cute looking girl (she looks not more than 15 in below picture) could have bundle books / movies / series and can make a good story out of it.


Yes, I am talking about book 'Caged'. When she first sent me book for unbiased review, I checked book details on GoodReads and also did google about author. And what I found was amazing. it's not a selfpublish book but Onaiza was winner of the story peak contest.


Blurb of the book
"Keep your mind right, put your body in action and let your spirit guide you.”
These are the words keeping her sane after her husband kidnaps her, tearing her away from her life in India and keeping her captive in Northern Canada.
But after three months with only a servant, a television and the screams of another captive keeping her company, she begins to lose touch with reality - even forgetting her own name.
I her struggle to escape, she discovers an inner strength and powers previously unknown realigning her past, present and future. 
Story started with a girl who was locked by her husband directly after their marriage. She has already spent 3 months in that room. She had all the luxury in that room, but her world was confined in that room. She hated her husband for this betrayal. Surprisingly she didn't remember few substaintial parts of her life like her name, family members' names, phone numbers. She recently started hearing screams of another captive that her husband brought. Whenever she didn't comply with her husband, she will hear another guys screams. And she was feeling guilty about it. During this period few strange things started taking place. Her husband started being nice to her, she got first series of 'the Lost', she found lock of library (inside her room) was open. Things became more and more mysterious. (Book and story is short so I don't want to spoil it)

If you read it further you will find Onaiza was influensed by Heroes series. But to keep reader interested author has kept adding twist and turns after every few pages (though many of them were obvious for me). There were few flaws in plot specially at end. I felt Onaiza has not given proper justice to climax which could have been better. But overall a good book. Talking about ratings:
  1. Cover - 4 / 5 
  2. Language - 3.5 / 5 
  3. Story Line - 3.5 / 5 (Simple and expected at times)
  4. Concept - 3 / 5 (Combination of supernature series)
  5. Characters - 3 / 5
  6. Overall - 3.5 / 5
Book can be found at - Amazon
