Celestia Chronicles: The Ashes of Hope | Anagha Ratish | Book Review
The saga of Celestia is no more a fairy tale. No more it is harmless pixies and fun-filled characters. This time it is dark and sinister with an underlying sense of foreboding.
The throne of Emberglass that Adaire and her likes wanted to snatch away from evil Queen Zyra’s clutches has once again fallen into evil. From one evil queen to another. Perhaps that was how the saga was always meant to be.
The Deal in Akmud | Ekta Sinha | Book Review
This work of fiction is doubly fictitious and based in a dream-like land with elements that are fantastical and other worldly. It is a story that revolves around the idea of evil and explicates the manner in which evil thrives by being a sort of parasite.

For someone who loves the allure of fantasy universes more than anything in the world, the book does have something to offer.

The God Who Loved Motorbikes | Murali K Menon | Book Review
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.
Chronicles of the Mortal Vishnu | Antar Atreya | Book Review
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 | R.K. Singh | Book Review
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.
