Sting in the Tale is a collection of thirteen short stories. The stories are across different genres and perspectives.

Kala Ghoda: The Game Begins had a fast-paced narration as events unfolded one after the other, ending with a drastic change in the hierarchy.

Empty Wallet has a pleasant story, however, the blurb did promise a lot but not much was achieved throughout the book. There was no insufficiency of drama but I couldn’t catch on the blurb’s promise of a corporate thriller. It felt more or less like a corporate drama I have heard or read earlier.

It is richly grounded on historical facts as we know them and even myths recounted through generations.
A diverse range of poems together form the book called Trials and Tribulations and it is rightfully titled because the poet Dr. Prajwal Kumar tries to convey the personal struggles and experiences that Life presents in front of every individual. It was fascinating to glimpse into the poet’s perception and view the World through his eyes.
For all the science-fiction readers out there, author Sadhna Shanker, through her latest book Ascendance, brings to you a world where the whole setting is foreign and the population segregation bizarre. It has a whodunit factor that answered to the thirst for mystery in me.
