Hi Review : The Flames of Anahata 

Blurb :

“They turned to see his tears of love wiping away her blood of agony…”
Diya throws Suraj’s proposal back in his face, leaving him broken-hearted. Why would she do so when she loved him desperately?
Suraj finds his Guruji unconscious beside a cave clutching the warrior Indrajith’s diary. His heart-rending love story then unfolds. Being trapped in a web of emotions, Indrajith endured the pain of his lost love, hurting himself and trampled Deepali’s hope for his adopted brother… Who was he?
Sealed for centuries and holding the Mann-Parivarthana astra, the cave is besieged by evil now. But all attempts to unlock it go futile. Faced with baffling hints, Suraj’s intelligence is sorely tested. What is the potent power required to break through that Paanch-Dost-Gupha?
THE FLAME OF ANAHATA!
Will the fire of love ever flicker in the hearts of Diya and Suraj?

About the author :

Saranya Umakanthan is a software engineer by profession and a two-time university topper. An avid reader, she enjoys playing with words. She loves coffee, books and online shopping. Nothing brings her more contentment than seeing a reader enjoying her book. The fragrance and texture of paperback novels inspire her and she hangs out at bookstores frequently.

My verdict :

The story line prevails friendship and love. 

Characters revolves around the story, a character that you fall in love with, a character you feel bad for and a character you feel hatred for.  The twist, turns and the story lines is amazing, the story and the name of the book has deeper and beautiful meaning, the book contains beautiful flow of excitements, and romance. 

The way the story started and the way the story ended was simply good, as they story goes side by side, the past and present. But doesn’t really get confused. 

Love has very deeper meaning, not just when times revolves or it depends of swings of perceptions. 

It was great read, altogether. 

One can flip pages easily getting connected with the book in flow 

Editor has done Great job 🙂

Review: Demons in my mind

Book Blurb: 

Dakshesh, an old man in Sirubari village suffering from cancer, wishes to be released from the excruciating pain. He requests the villagers to take him to the three monks. They are all intrigued by the legend of the mystical three monks. No one has seen them but only heard stories of miraculous healing they offered. 

Knowing that the sick man’s death is imminent, the villagers leave him alone near the Pashupatinath temple hoping that the three monks, if they exist, would embrace him on the holy land. The old man wakes up to the sight of the three monks, but only to know that they are no saints but notorious criminals. 

What they tell Dakshesh in his last few breaths, shakes his entire perception of humanity and its sins.

My verdict :

Dakshesh, the character you began reading with, an old man, who has done all good deeds his life, to all the people of villagers, he is old and diagnosed from cancer, his last wish is to see Three old monks.  And when he finally meets them, and tells his reason behind meeting him, three monks have unbearable stores to recite and also warns Dakshesh about the impact after listening to the stories, but Dakshesh stills his mind to listen &  the monk recites the story one by one, the way they have committed thier crime and are no good. 

The first monk who is Murderer. 

Rezwaan, the school going boy. 

The second monk who is Rapist :

Murli, a artist, painter. 

The third monk who is Lover 
It is Dakshesh, who found monks and hears the stories who leaves you shocking, giving you different types of feelings, pathetic, harming, madness, senses. All these agitations are felt deeply listening to thier stories. 

The author must have left no stone unturned, the way the book has been penned is damn beautiful way, the way the characters play, the way they are designed and portrayed, you feel all of them are in front of you. The story, the visualisation gets stronger with every passing time. The language is written is really considerable with all the amidst concentration on the pages you flip, or else u feel the story is off sync which is not. The writer has great command on the language, and the story line. 

It’s really not easy to analyse the emotions of artist who commits crime, rape,murder. The name of the book is so appealing, the cover page is designed very well. 

You will get adapted and addicted to the book, no wonder, you will end up reading it in one go. 

I suggest everyone to read this book 🙂

Review : The color of Love 

Book Name The Colour of Love: Trumpets and bugles, there was music all over…
Author : Jagdish Joghee

Publisher Notion Press, Inc.

Blurb :

​Sarfaraz is brought up with a good value system by his devoted parents. With time, curiosity and adolescent growth pangs take him through many experiences. His first brush with girls starts with a friend, and slowly meanders into casual flirtatious affairs with girls at college.

All through it, he realises that none of them have his undying, true love. A time comes when he realises who he truly loves, and in the midst of it all, he handles brutal enmity and takes on vile characters that misbehave with his friends.

Sarfaraz grows up in Coimbatore where a series of bomb blasts occur. His identity is called in question, as his status as a Muslim makes people see him as an enemy. He loses something precious in the blasts and leaves to Sharjah, only for life to find him and surprise him


My verdict :

Sarfaraz is the lead character of the book, the story line is based on the mentality of the people, biased, racist, blaming another culture, Creed &  caster amidst staying In the same country, breathing the same air, and living under the same sky. 

Sarfaraz makes attempts to fall in love with person, he tries looking for love, but slowly realises what love is, and whom he really love, his story begins with love, when he is almost happy, there comes big mess following his caste and Creed and heap of Blames for being belonged the caste Muslim. 

He decides to leave coimbatore, when series of bomb blasts take place, he leaves to Sharjah where he is very keen on his own life, dreams and passion that carries him entirely to make him better being. 

The book contains lot of emotional attachments, feeling gliding up with the story.

My Verdict :

How strange life is,  always asking us to walk on different paths, unknowingly or knowingly, wantedly or Unwantedly we keep moving forward with hope aligning to our selves, and sometimes we make Wonders, we try Achieve something that is truly Miracle.

Book Name: Strangers with known faces 


Author: Gautam Dutta 


Publisher: Invincible Publishers 



Blurb:

They meet after winning a lucky draw- the prize of which was to take part in a puzzle game. Though the game was engrossing, they were unable to solve the puzzle in the stipulated time. However, this lead to the beginning of a deep friendship between them. Their friendship blossomed. But ego and misunderstanding led to an acrimonious break up. They meet again- two decades later- when Shanaya is murdered, and the other four are suspects. The four soon realize that in spite of being estranged for so many years, there were unknown ties that bound them- ties of treachery, deceit, and subterfuge. Ties that have led them to come together in circumstances that no one could have foreseen. And the game that they had left incomplete two decades back has to be played yet again – on a much bigger canvas.

Or is history doomed to repeat itself? As hidden aspects of the human personality are revealed, they realize that no one is what he or she appears to be. For the world comprises of ‘Strangers With Known Faces’. 


My verdict :

The story line revolves around five friends, who have met accidently on a occasion, the friendship is built so rapidly but Is broken due to few misunderstandings, days pass by, and after years a shocking news leads them to gather again. 

The book has few different and difficult terms. Although five lead characters are there, the narration is being done by single person, the story is smooth and long going, it slow down in a moment, but end of the book, your predictions are wrong and you have really something unexpected in the end. This makes it more interesting and wonderful. The book is bowl of emotions, poured so well like romance, fun, fights, hurts, relationship friendship, angry. The author has done great job. 

Hence every book worm can read this book 🙂
