Beyond Deception by Nirmala Kasinathan is the sequel to Woven Deception. Starting in 2060, we see Abhijay, head of the MARS 10 Mission, heading off on Day 1 of the mission on the Vimaana spacecraft. It is Abhijay who is responsible for finding the Martian Oasis, but events don’t go as planned and the Martians are unleashed on Earth. Abhijay’s brother is an inventor and a neurosurgeon who, through the invention of revolutionary devices, goes against the Martian rule. According to the Great Sage Schinada, the brothers will triumph in a strong alliance, bringing about further alliances between planets. But can they wrestle Earth from the telepathic control of the Martians? Did the Sage correctly prophesy the future? There’s only one way to find out.

I did not read the first book, but I felt that Beyond Deception by Nirmala Kasinathan contained sufficient information so that I could keep up with the story. It could probably be read as a standalone but, like any series, I always feel that the books should be read as a series, not alone. Ms. Kasinathan has a clever way with words, writing smoothly, descriptively, and in a way that makes her story easy to follow yet is compelling reading. The character development leaves you in no doubt as to who these characters are and the plot ran a true course to the very end. This will suit fans of sci-fi down to the last detail; it has everything - action, adventure, prophecy, despair and triumph, every ingredient needed for a great story.
