The Claviger, by Rayo Scala, is a science fiction thriller based on the clavigers, an elite group of combatants who have been reincarnating over the last hundred centuries keeping intact all knowledge from past lives. They are on an important mission to protect mother earth from centuries of destruction posed by humanity. Considered aware reincarnates, the clavigers die and get reborn at around roughly the same time and by the time they are teenagers meet and greet each other reminiscing all previous knowledge. They are expert tacticians, master craftsmen, and linguists who have been interfering with events around the world over centuries to maintain natural balance and harmony on earth.
In present times, FBI agents Egan and Kun along with homeland security Talib and Alma are on a mission to crack down claviger operations. The clavigers possess powers to hack into systems, conduct sting operations, and kill their enemies to disrupt world trade and economies. These traits make them a formidable challenge for the mafias across many developed nations who send in teams to encounter them. However, our protagonists must find a way to discover the real motives behind claviger operations.
The Claviger is a thrilling story with a fantastically detailed backstory. The character developments in this story are methodical and well defined and every character has a unique arc that comes to fruition at the end. The author has bridged the gap between the past and the future using detailed narratives. Vivid imagery has been used to describe memories in flashbacks and there are many historical as well as mythological references. Advanced weaponry, conspiracy theories, and fast-paced action give readers a mix of James Bond and Stars Wars-like vibes.
The interaction among the characters is another unique feature of this plot. The clavigers tend to talk among themselves with a mix of old Shakespearean English while our protagonists speak modern English with cuss words. This helps readers easily understand the mood in the chapters. I enjoyed how secrets and mysteries were slowly revealed throughout the story, and this slow delivery keeps the suspense consistently high. The mix of science fiction and historical events create a conducive environment for a big revelation at the end.
The Claviger tells an imaginative and riveting story with a one-of-a-narrative. Readers who enjoy stories that combine history, action and subtle science fiction elements will find plenty to enjoy in Rayo Scala’s suspenseful-action adventure novel.
