Caught In The Vortex is a work of fiction in the science fiction, action, and adventure subgenres, and it forms the first novel of the Longevity Universe series. Penned by author A. Elnas, It is suitable for the general reading audience. Cockroach, a human mechanic, is on a quest to regain a peaceful life while facing a resurfaced past, devastating truths, and betrayals. Set in a universe on the brink of destruction, Cockroach navigates a world of flawed heroes, hidden secrets, and impending danger. After surviving humanity's downfall, Cockroach seeks solace on an alien planet, working for the longevity industry. However, when an attack on the industrial empire occurs and a ghost from the past returns, Cockroach's life is thrown into chaos. Framed for a crime he didn't commit, he must flee authorities while battling inner demons. Encounters with allies offer glimmers of hope, but bitter revelations force Cockroach to confront the truth and take a stand against the looming threat.
Author A. Elnas has crafted a vivid universe filled with complex characters and intricate plot twists, and the novel seamlessly combines elements of science fiction, action, and suspense to create a captivating narrative that feels both real and unreal at the same moment. Cockroach's journey is not just one of survival but also of self-discovery and courage as the close, detailed narrative delves into themes of identity, trust, and the consequences of past actions. Elnas' writing style keeps the reader engaged, and the world-building is rich and immersive. As the first book in the series, Caught In The Vortex successfully introduces readers to the Longevity Universe and leaves them eagerly anticipating the next installment. Overall, I would highly recommend it and can’t wait to see what comes next.
