My Rating: *5 Stars*

Yes! Giving it 5 Stars.

Okay I don’t know if you read my review of Storm and Silence #1 or not. But let me tell you, I loved that book. I couldn’t put that book down, it kept me hooked up till the end. And yes the end did make me sad. Because I wanted to know, “What happens next?”.

Ya, that book left me wanting more. I’m totally in love with these two characters, Mr Ambrose and Lillian. Oh how much I adore them.

So when I started reading this book and continued with their story, it happened again. I fell in love with this book as well. Yes, I got the answer to my first question, “What happens next?”. But again this book left me wanting more. I’m kinda addicted. I seriously can’t wait to read more of this series.

I really liked the writing. The writing was very well done and the details were taken care of.

I just want more out of this story with a really good conclusion, and I’m eagerly waiting for the next installment!

Characters were real good, story was just amazing, writing was awesome and the book was full humor and sarcasm. Now what else do we need?

What is it in this book? Well, I would say, a whole lot of action, a little bit of romance and some really good adventure.

I loved “In the Eye of the Storm”.

I don’t know what else other people need. But I surely need another installment. There I said it!

Cover Reveal: The Conspiracy of Meru by Shatrujeet Nath

First look at The Conspiracy at Meru (Vikramaditya Veergatha # 2)

Vikramaditya 2 - Conspiracy at Meru-2


Guardians of the Halahala (Vikramaditya Veergatha # 1) has a new look as well!

The Guardians of the Halahala-2

The deadly Halahala, the all-devouring poison churned from the depths of the White Lake by the devas and asuras, was swallowed by Shiva to save the universe from extinction.

But was the Halahala truly destroyed?

A small portion still remains – a weapon powerful enough to guarantee victory to whoever possesses it. And both asuras and devas, locked in battle for supremacy, will stop at nothing to claim it.

As the forces of Devaloka and Patala, led by Indra and Shukracharya, plot to possess the Halahala, Shiva turns to mankind to guard it from their murderous clutches. It is now up to Samrat Vikramaditya and his Council of Nine to quell the supernatural hordes – and prevent the universe from tumbling into chaos!

A sweeping tale of honour and courage in the face of infinite danger, greed and deceit, The Guardians of the Halahala is a fantastical journey into a time of myth and legend.

Reviews for Guardians of the Halahala

The story is interknitted with action, brilliant storytelling, and insightful of
mythological and legendary elements that get under your skin and challenge the
way you perceive history, as only few of the talented authors can. ~ Shreya Ganguly @ The Notepad Reviews

I am intoxicated, drugged, and floating in a world that has come to conquer my
senses since the last few days. The world of Vikramaditya. The world carved by
author Shatrujeet Nath. ~ Amrit Sinha on Goodreads

The quality of writing is powerful and beautiful, almost surreal. ~ By Manish Mahajan on Amazon

In fact the only disappointing thing about this book was that the second part
isn’t ready yet. ~ Srikanth Sarathy on Amazon

Wow! What did I read?

Let me tell you something. This book was absolutely brilliant. I haven’t read much of historical fiction and had no idea what to expect. However, I’m glad that I did read it.

The story was unique and beautifully written. A complete package with a dose of humor, sarcasm, a portion of wittiness, history, feminism(I’m not a feminist, but I adored Lilly), mysterious men, crime and what not.

Not some typical romance novel(even though I was expecting it to be, but no no. I was wrong). There were so many twists and turns, which I didn’t expect. However, at times things were quiet predictable and I knew where things were going. The writer put a lot of efforts on even small details, I really liked that.

There was this particular scene when Lilly and Mr. Ambrose went to east end of London and the description of people and crime around that area made me remember Jack The Ripper case from 1888. That was weird for me because I started thinking about that.

I liked the characters, I loved the writing and the story turned out to be really good. Now what else you need?

I can only say Lilly and that son of a bachelor, Mr. Ambrose, made this story so so much better. I loved their arguments, all the time they spent together and their adventures.

I adored Lilly and I loved Mr. Ambrose.

It was very hard for me to put this book down, and I’m eagerly waiting for next installment.

So did I love this book?

Book Review : Einstein’s Dreams by Alan Lightman

“A person who cannot imagine the future is a person who cannot contemplate the result of his action. Some are thus paralyzed into inaction.”

My Rating : *4.5 Stars*

This was a brilliant book and without doubt I want to recommend this book to every one. This was a very delightful read and took only three hours to read it. It was fun, fast and a thought provoking read.

Time is the soul of this book and basically this book is a collection of Einstein’s dreams(fictional dreams) which he saw when he was working on the Theory of Relativity(or say when he was struggling with the idea of relativity).

I liked the way these dreams were presented and I liked the poetry, the words were really flowing.

I don’t call this a novel and actually this book is a collection of about 30 vignettes and these vignettes are entirely based on different realities of time.

Now I have few questions for you :

How do you see time? And what do you see, when you picture time?

What if, you stuck in time?

ora_md

What if, time is a circle?

What if, time has three dimension, like space?

“In this world, time has three dimension, like space. Just as an object may move in three perpendicular directions, corresponding to horizontal, vertical and longitudinal, so an object may participate in three perpendicular futures. Each future moves in different direction of time. Each future is real. At every point of decision, the world split into three worlds, each with the same people, but different fates for those people. In time, there are an infinity of worlds.”

If you know the answers of these questions then good, but if not then go read this book and face the different realities of time and answer these questions for yourself 😉

You’ll be amazed!

Happy Reading!
