'SNOWBOUND' by Olivier Lafont ~ Book Blitz

After reading his 'Warrior', I was waiting for yet another mythological offering from Olivier Lafont. Instead, he comes up with a book on Christmas and Santa Claus. Have to be on the TBR list. :)

Christmas is dying.

The last Santa Claus had triplets who each inherited a portion of his father’s power, and that split is now tearing apart the soul of Christmas.

Niccolo Vecchio, the eldest, has fortified the North Pole into a citadel of ice and metal.

Santini, the middle brother, is in hiding somewhere in the Mediterranean.

The youngest brother, Niccolo Piccolo, is raising legions to reclaim his inheritance.

Two of the triplets will have to renounce their claim in the next forty-eight hours, or this Christmas will be the last one ever.

And it’s up to Adam, underachieving teenager sub-ordinaire, and his brand new jock bully Zach to make…

'The Wrong Turn', by Sanjay Chopra and Namita Roy Ghose

THE WRONG TURN: Love and Betrayal in the Time of Netaji by Sanjay Chopra & Namita Roy Ghose


Blurb
1944, Kohima — a small, sleepy town in northeast India. Subhash Chandra Bose and his Indian National Army (INA) along with the Japanese, are on the brink of bringing the Empire to its knees and forcing the British out of India. But, inexplicably, the tables turn. The INA’s advance is thwarted and the victory march to Delhi is halted. Seventy years later, the British admit that the Battle of Kohima was the greatest battle they had ever fought. Even more so than the battles of Waterloo and Dunkirk. Was it then that old Indian curse — betrayal? Someone from within Netaji’s own ranks? Were there forces other than the British, waiting in the shadows closer to home, who stood to gain even more from the INA’s defeat? Or was it just love that irrevocably altered the course of India’s destiny? The Wrong Turn: Love and Betrayal in the Time of Netaji, is a sweeping tale of passion set against the fre…

'Jugnu (Firefly)', by Ruchi Singh

The Blurb
Zayd Abbas Rizvi, out on parole, wants to escape the suspicious eyes of the world and concentrate on rebuilding his future. He zeroes in on Kasauli, a small, quaint hill town.

Contrary to his expectations though, he is unable to find peace in the skirmish around the guest house, the antics of a three-year-old, and the deep, sad eyes of his mother. As he battles the demons of his past, falling in love is not in Zayd’s plan…
Ashima's life is a long, tiresome struggle, until a tall, tattoo flaunting stranger registers in her guest house. Hoping against hope for a ray of sunshine in her life, unbridled attraction to a stranger is not what Ashima bargains for…

Will Zayd and Ashima be able to forego their past and embrace their present, even when they know that if things went wrong, all they'll be left with is a broken heart and painful memories?

MY REVIEW
The battery meter on my tab is bright red in color right now, and I'm still ignoring the 1% warning on it. Yes, 1% batte…

Will the unlikely couple have a chance at a happy ending?
MY REVIEW
Disclaimer: Two genres I prefer to read the least are Horror and Romance; and both for the same reason too. Having said that, there are a few writers who you just can't not read; doesn't matter the genre. For me, Ms. Fernando is one such writer par excellence. An impeccable command over the langu…
