Bachelor's MarriageBachelor’s Marriage by Akshat Pradeep Solanki
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

There is a basic advantage for the readers reading a story of romance. Ask me-what is the advantage? Since romance has its appeal direct to the heart-there will be a good exercise of heart. Sometimes the heartbeat will run faster-sometimes slower-it is good jogging for heart all the way! In contrast-suppose if you reading a thriller. Thrillers these days are so much researched upon, that it is an excessive taxation for the brain. While reading-sometimes you have to jump to Wikipedia, sometimes to encyclopedias just to know the background of the story. And who does not know excess work by the brain will ruin your health. So, to be in good health always read romance. More so, if these stories are something of the nature of a fluid read like the Bachelor’s marriage.
Jokes apart, the appeal of…

Monty: The Courageous Survival of a Rescue DogMonty: The Courageous Survival of a Rescue Dog by Janet Squires
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Thousands of years ago-one arrow, -struck a crane, who was flying high above the sky, perhaps talking to the clouds, like a stick of fire.
It came crushing down-withering with pain. The destiny of the crane was beyond doubt-to be the prey of a greedy man.
But destiny had scripted some other fate for that crane-it came near the place where a young prince was playing.
He came rushing down to the crane-took it in his lap. The young prince soon became busy thinking ways to save the crane.
His brother-whose arrow had struck the crane-came running. He demanded the wounded crane. If that crane had some power to guess human behavior-his heartbeat would have gone faster. Did the young prince have sensed its trembling heart? He refused to return the crane.
What…

To the SurvivorsTo the Survivors by Robert Uttaro
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Can any other individual feel the pain of a people who is burning to death? The flesh is getting charred, through the veins runs the fire-will there be any sharing of such horrific experience of hell can be shared by any other people?
Their worlds have been shattered. He or she-they can be members of either sex. She can be a teen-yet to feel the blossoming of youth in her body and mind, she can be a young lady who has just felt the advent of spring in her life or she can be a middle aged woman-passing through high tides of life-there is one similarity.
She now bears the scar from the claws of the carnivorous animal-masked as human.
She has been raped. She has been tormented. Against her will-she was compelled to crumble mentally and physically.

Mistress of HonourMistress of Honour by Bhaavna Arora
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Their first meeting was not in a romantic environment-warm, cozy, bright. Rather it was the time when all hell broke loose-fire leaping at the eyes of her eyes-she is going through torment that no individual ever desires to undergo-and he, has been hit by a bullet. A deadly wound-but still he has to serve his motherland-until the last drop of life remains in his body.
Even if there is no blooming of flower- it was spring! Even at inferno-spring does come….
Mistress of Honour by Bhavna Arora is a multi layered book of romance, where events flow like a streaming river-where pure romance is not the only narrative on which the story survives. It is a strong writing by a coming of age writer –developed amid the backdrop of anti insurgency operation in the golden temple and aftershock…

The Banished LandsThe Banished Lands by Benjamin Mester
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Durian’s attention was fixed to the old man for quite some time.
At first glance-he was a simple man-gathered to witness the thrill and joy of the annual sports Surya-but Durian’s mind was diverted from the games to the old man-again and again.
It seems that the old man was mind is somewhere else-not in the games. He was from the far off land-clearly written in his stature, his appearances, and his dresses-even in his walking stick-ornately decorated.
And it must have cost him money and strength to come to the venue of the annual sports-he must be an avid sports lover-but he was not at all enjoying the sports.
What mystery is shrouded in his presence in the games?
‘The Banished Lands’ by Benjamin Mester is an absorbing tale of fantasy-a tale where myth, history, legends, folklores…

The Life and Times of Halycon Sage or The Last Book Ever PublishedThe Life and Times of Halycon Sage or The Last Book Ever Published by Karima Vargas Bushnell
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The world-well almost the whole world is after him. Everybody is thinking –who is that man? Or who is that woman? Or who is that creature?
I think the mystery personality can never be a creature. First of all-the person writes novels in perfect English-certainly an animal can not write. Secondly there are instances that the person is afraid of bills –certainly no intelligent species other than Homo sapiens has till date made use of bills and money.
So our immediate conclusion is our protagonist is human. And as the person writes full length-(well, length is a relative term, you know. One minute in the heaven is thousand years on earth may be! ) novels-the human must be an intelligent human.
But still the identity of Halycon…
