For someone who loves the allure of fantasy universes more than anything in the world, the book does have something to offer. Dynamic and larger-than-life characters trapped in dangerous and often life-threatening adventures set against the background of a possible good vs evil apocalypse is something that surely promises a decent dose of entertainment.
The God Who Loved Motorbikes is not just a book. It is a feeling; it is a journey in itself that is so wondrous and yet sometimes so incongruous. It is a battle fought in tandem with a never-ending quest for an elusive god – not the god who loved motorbikes but the god of all motorbikes.
The book doesn’t lack entertainment. It has an interesting storyline, an engaging plot and an awesome string of characters however, a little more effort on pruning the excessive descriptions and maintaining an even pace would surely have been great. Overall, it is a decent one time read.
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.
Mystical Warfare of Schools: The Dark Rises is a book that is meant for children. It is a fantasy but a fantasy meant just for children. This is mainly because it is written in such a way that will only appeal to children.
Tarikshir: The Awakening by Khayaal Patel is a massive entertainer; one that is sure to leave you spellbound with all that it has to offer. It’s a fantasy novel that draws heavily from our mythology and history. Like a cherry on top, it has elements of thrill and mystery as well. This book comes as a much-recommended read from me.
Identity Quest is a pure fantasy novel; a fantasy based in India, with Indian characters and Indian settings. The book talks of an ancient order of beings that have secret powers. The order has existed for thousands of years. These beings exhibit supernatural powers and are called Dvidhas.
Inkredia – Luwan Of Brida is a tale of adventure, friendship and love – bonds we share as a human being; it is a tale of good vs evil. It sets the bar pretty high for aspiring writers for their first book because, generally, in their first books writers get sloppy but Sarang has done a commendable and appreciable work with Inkredia.
The Least Favorite Child is the story of Rivka, who at the tender age of six was sent away by her parents to a military training school in compliance with their country’s conscript law. The book is an ideal one for lovers of action and war reads. The narration is made real by a lot of descriptions of the scenes and the weapons and technology.
A book of this sort is a promise of exciting adventures, fights that make you hold your breath and deaths you will lament over. Be rest assured of every one of these when you pick up The Scarlet Turban. The story of a brave warrior and his companions, a winding journey, the wise words of mentors and a single focus: revenge.
In this book, the writing was simple, comprehensive, interactive. I would go so far as to say it was the ideal kind of writing I look for in dystopian or science fictions: perfectly explanatory (to a layman like me) but also lively. The same sort of writing carries on throughout the book.
Feral (Many Lives #1) is the story of a young girl Maya who lives in a world where humans and hybrids co-exist. She is a human but has been brought up by a group of hybrids living in Bombay. After learning this, she sets out in search of her true parents. What she uncovers in the process is truly surprising.
