The Jewel of Vishnu is the story of Arul, a clueless teenager, who has a powerful amulet and must use every means possible to save his village. I would recommend the book to anyone interested in an adventurous and fantastical journey set in an Indian locale.
With a mild blend of humour and a lot of twists, Diluted is a tale of the untold dilemmas when it comes to matters of the heart. Set at a little over 3 hours, Diluted is a serious test of patience for the reader who has to go through unnecessary details before they get to the main points.
As exquisite as the book cover looks, this sci-fi book is a must read for all lovers of science fiction, futuristic novels, investigative plots and all those who enjoy reading in general. The language of PORT717 is fabulous and brilliantly clean just like the plot. There are no spelling errors what so ever.
‘The Astral Surge’ is a realization and exploration of the relationship between the Awareness and the Unknown. Well researched and also, thrilling at times, the book ponders on the amalgamation of nature and artificial intelligence, on mutation and formation of Super Humans and, the impact of such a development on the whole of Creation.
Not a Different Story is worthy of being serialised as it bears all aspects of a theatrical plot. If read at a stretch,it may be completed within 4-5 hours. The book will be highly enjoyed by those who like reading family dramas.
Ravi Dabral’s Greed Lust Addiction is a book that is more like a self-help book doling out life mantras than a crime fiction with a mysterious and dramatic bend. Expect a book that has some lessons to teach on almost all aspects of a person’s life – be it personal, professional, political, social, environmental etc.
Kamadeva: The God of Desire is a mythological fiction that tells us (albeit fictionally) the entire story of Kamadeva, legendary God of love. So, expect a mythological fiction which takes you on a roller coaster ride that is the life of Kamadeva.
Pocketful O’ Stories is a collection of over 200 micro tales – each of them being not more than a page long. Expect a book that showcases love from the point of view of hundreds of Indians. Expect a book that talks about romance in the most innocent and ordinary ways.
Divided into 23 chapters, Indigo Awakening is a grim yet exciting read into the topsy-turvy world of a woman who has been suffering from the feeling of being visited by apparitions at night time. It all makes for a highly unpredictable narrative that seems to find no proper solution.
Pushki’s First Train Adventure is a treat for the 90s kid as it takes the reader down the memory lane to those days of exciting summer vacations and joyful train rides when vacations simply meant making the annual pilgrimage to the house of one’s maternal grandparents.
Time Guard: The Awakening is recommended to anyone interested in stories which are a blend of sci-fi, mythology and all things supernatural. The author challenges the readers to think outside the box and imagine different scenarios.
Catchy yet spine chilling, as the blood splattered on the cover photo denotes, the short stories of promising writer Biswajit Patnaik in his collection of four crime thrillers are titled The Hidden Truth. It is a collection of 4 short stories. The plots are highly thrilling and engrossing.
