'Karthikeya- and his battle with the soul stealer' by Usha Narayanan ~ Review

'Karthikeya- and his battle with the soul stealer' by  Usha Narayanan


BLURB
Surapadma's reign of terror flourishes and the fate of all creatures--mortal and immortal--hangs in the balance. Shiva's son, Kartikeya, must destroy several formidable asuras before he can confront the Soul Stealer and save the dying, gasping universe.
But Kartikeya, whisked away by mysterious forces to live amidst birds and beasts on a bleak mountainside, is ignorant of his destiny, and struggles to learn his identity. Not even the gods--Brahma, Vishnu or Shiva--come to his aid. 
He can win the final battle only if he can discern his enemy's weakness and his own inner strength. 
Will Shiva's son rise to the challenge before it is too late? 
The world waits with bated breath. . .
MY REVIEW
Must I start every review of the writer’s book with a disclaimer? Yes, I must; to be on the safer side, lest I should end up enraging one of her millions of fans. So, here goes…

'The Girl Child' by De.B. Dubois ~ Review

The Girl Child by De. B. Dubois


Blurb Growing up as a strong-headed single child with a privileged upbringing in Calcutta, Devi has learned much from her surroundings. Her childhood memories are filled with mixed emotions – especially as she remains angry with her mother and the hypocrisy of women in India. On an unexpected journey home, she encounters reality – new stories and experiences of strangers, as well as friends. It has been years since she left Calcutta, yet the city’s untold stories haunt her. This time Devi is back in town to solve issues and above all, through some painful and hard revelations, to make peace with those she can.

My Review'The Girl Child' by De.B. Dubois is primarily the story of Devi, a girl from Calcutta (now Kolkata), who returns to her motherland after many years. How does she take the sudden change of culture? Has anything changed here in all these years? Does she feel welcome in her own country and state, or the same old demons return to haunt her…

'Killer Moves' by Varsha Dixit ~ Review

Killer Moves by Varsha Dixit Blurb Everyone has a secret. Aisha Khatri has many! Aisha’s life is seemingly mundane on the surface-she writes for television and takes care of her niece Kiara and her retired father. But when Kiara’s life is threatened during a modeling assignment for the famous Kabir Rana, once a suspect for his wife’s murder, the only way Aisha can save Kiara is by accepting the unique ability she has aggressively resisted all her life. But Aisha is not the only one with secrets. There are others who have secrets and will kill to keep them. Aisha is determined to protect Kiara even if it means placing herself in the crosshairs of a depraved killer who butchers beautiful girls and leaves them as grotesque displays. Is Kiara a target of a serial killer or is the killer closer to home-and Aisha’s heart? Who is Kabir Rana? An elusive and moody fashion photographer burdened with a dark past or a murderer who got away? How will Aisha save Kiara from a killer who is several steps…

'The Bodyguard' by Ruchi Singh ~ Review

THE BODYGUARD by Ruchi Singh


Blurb
Someone wants Vikramaditya Seth Jr. dead. 
He refuses the Z+ security option offered by the government. With too many variables trust is hard to come by…
Esha Sinha prepares for her first assignment outside of active-army service, oblivious to the fact that she has to baby-sit a man who has no respect for rules or protocol—a man who is headstrong, workaholic and a tenacious flirt. As the attraction between Vikram and Esha simmers and sizzles, another attempt is made on his life. 
The killer is resourceful and determined. 
The motive is unclear and perplexing.
Will they be able to nab the assassin before he gets to Vikram?


My Review
I loved the protagonist of this book. The writer has managed to portray Major Esha to be so real to life and the girl next door that almost every scene played itself in front of my eyes while reading.
Bravo! The story flows well, and the drama unfolds only as much and just when needed.
I had to finish it in one go, although it meant …

'BlinD Certainly Is Love' by Reshma Ranjan ~ Review

BLIND, CERTAINLY IS LOVE by Reshma Ranjan




Blurb
Neha Jaiswal is beautiful and intelligent—an alluring combination—but chooses to be a recluse. What works for her is her intimidating personality that comes with her success. With no desire to get into a relationship, the strong, assertive, and hardworking Neha manages to keep the men at bay—all except one.
Sumit Conrad, a super successful businessman, is an intriguing specimen of a man. Known to the world as the good Conrad, Sumit is actually a recluse who prefers only his own company, to the exception of his brother John and sister-in-law Sarika.
When fate throws the flirt in Sumit and the furious Neha together, sparks are bound to fly.
Will Sumit be able to convince the headstrong and opinionated Neha that what he wants is a long haul and not a passing phase?
Or will the stubborn and cantankerous Neha be successful in driving him away?
Will their love make them blind to each other or to their own flaws? Will this blind love ever find its way?
