Ballad of a Belle By Rahul Tushar

 

The Blurb: 

Smitten completely, love was all that Aarti desired as she stepped out of Panditpora, Sopore, a small town in Kashmir, with dreams of a glorious tomorrow in her eyes. She was ready to merge with varied colors that life had painted for her, surreal most of the time. With sprinkles of love and care from Priya, her leading light, the game changing journeys across various cities of the world strengthened her resolve to fight back every time fate besmirched her. Although, Priya helped Aarti wriggle out of decaying associations that had become possessive, self-centered and oppressive, could she teach Aarti all about life in a world full of envy, jealousy, greed and treachery?

The Story: 

The story is about a Kashmiri Girl Aarti who falls in love with Sanjiv and against everyone's will gets married to him. She never thought or imagined that love will bring such a cruel things in her life and after a traumatizing experience Aarti is left divorced and broken within a year of her marriage. Dilip a friend of Sanjiv and the person who helps Aarti to not only move to Delhi but to start a new life too, ends up falling in love with her. Aarti starts working and enrolls herself in self grooming classes where she finds Priya, her mentor who later becomes her best friend only to turn out to be something entirely different than what readers were initially made to believe.

The story is a journey of Aarti succeeding in her career to the downfall of her personal life. The story is described in 4 phased of Aarti’s life. One with Sanjiv, second with Dilip, third with Stan & finally with Arun. Each phase of her life is different from other yet feels similar. It’s not easy to live in a world where everyone wants to climb the ladder of success by pulling other down. So what will Aarti do? How did she manages to build a career after her divorce? How did she survive alone in Delhi after the tragic incident of her family in Kashmir? And is Priya really her friend, or she is just one of those people who takes advantage of an innocent girl?

My Take: 

Starting from the start the story is very interesting and is written in simple language and without any confusion. Though I have never been to Kashmir, the description, and the incident did touch my heart and I found myself sympathizing with Aarti and emotional about her life. The Journey of Aarti from a small village to becoming a Chairman of a company is not only heart touching but a bit sad too. Reading this book I found many emotion running in my head. Shock, Pain, Relief, Disbelieve, Hurt, Disappointed, and finally Happy but stunned too. 

The best thing about the book is the way author Rahul has described the work descriptions. In total Aarti does 3 jobs and all the 3 jobs are described in detail which I’m sure other reader will find helpful and knowledgeable, just like me. The book gives a strong vibe on work ethics and working hard and with dedication you can achieve anything. 

Over all I loved the book and can’t really wait to read the second book written by Rahul Tushar. So if you are looking for an interesting book with twists and turns and full of emotional upheavals click on the link to read the journey of Aarti: https://amzn.to/37oyS5i

The Blue Unicorn's Journey To Osm By Sybrina Durant



The Blurb: 

A unicorn fairy-tale from the unicorn's point of view.
"Durant’s story is slyly whimsical as she builds up the world of Marbryn, a world where there are many wonders, but also threats to the existence of Blue’s tribe." - Jack Magnus From Reader's Favorite.
"The Blue Unicorn…reads like old time fairy tales…where life and death choices are made…" - From Fundinmental As The Eyes See It Blog
Everybody loves unicorns! OK maybe they don't but for those who do, they will love this story about a little unicorn who was born into a tribe of magical, metal horned unicorns. The little guy has no magic and he has no metal but somehow he must save the tribe from an evil sorcerer. 

The Story:

The story is a Unicorn Fairy-tale, a journey for becoming more. It’s a story about the metal-horned unicorn tribe that live in Marbryn. Before the birth of Blue, it was foretold that this unicorn will be the savior of the tribe, a savior from the Evil Magh. Magh is an evil sorcerer that kills unicorn for magical. But the tribe's hopes are crushed at the birth of the blue unicorn, as he is born without a metal horn and no metal means no magic. Later, after 20 years, when Blue is all grown up he learns there is still a way to save the tribe, a way to travel from forest to Muzika woods; where is will find Numen, the moon star, who will help them save the tribe and move to Unimaise, a unicorn Universe. 

So, the journey began with Blue along with him, his friend Gaiso, a deer, a fire-bird, and a Pendragon all in search of Muzika Woods. But the journey from Marbryan to forest, from forest to small mountains and mountains to Rainbow land is not easy. And Blue has to manage everything from saving the tribe and to fight the war at the end own his own. So how will Blue Unicorn save his tribe without any magic? Why is Magh after the peaceful Unicorn tribe? Who will win the war?

My Take:

The story is a delight and a treat to read. I loved the photos at the very start of the chapters; It gave illustrations of the scene perfectly and to imagine the unicorn was easy. The Author Sybrina Durant has done an amazing job while writing the small details and with well described scenes, the characters, the balanced suspense and the great reveal, everything is perfect and appreciable. The Author, Sybrina Durant has written an easy flowing story-line, with not much confusion straight to the story. The magical powers of each Unicorn are perfect and interesting to read. The part where Blue travel through the woods is my favorite part. The fire-bird’s help and the last war. I did get emotional at the end. The story will take to you on a ride of emotional yet unique journey of Blue unicorn. 

Overall I liked the book very much, even though it may seem like a children's story. I found that is interesting for grownups, too. So click on the link below a be a part of Blue's team to save his tribe and to see the transformation of The Blue Unicorn’s Journey To Osm: https://amzn.to/2F46tF4

The Panopticon Experiment: The Siklus Series, Book 1 By Rachel Caldecott



The Blurb:

DISAPPEARANCES…TERRORIST ACTS…
THE FUTURE OF HER WORLD IS AT STAKE.

For interspecies telepaths like Flo, the world seems fair and just. Humans and animals live in harmony and the world government represents all sentient beings. When a terrorist attack nearly kills her closest friend, Lonce, the world’s last snow leopard, Flo realizes that life in New Era London is not as safe as she thought.
Generations after the apocalypse of the twenty-first century, a new society based on species-equality has emerged from the ashes of the old.
However, marginalised and resentful, those humans lacking the necessary telepathy gene form a secret society - The Human Supremacy League. Its mission: Restore man as the dominant species and break the genetic bonds between man and animal.
Flo must solve the mystery of the disappearances and stop the League. But she can’t do it alone.

The Story & My Take: 

The story, The Panopticon Experiment is about inter-species telepathy between Human and Animal. The Humans divided into 2 categories, Com and Non Com's. Having ability to telepath and those who could communicate with animals through mind are the Coms and the Non Coms were those who lacked this ability. A terrorist attack that would have killed Flo's friend, Lonce; a last snow leopard. Flo is convinced that the attack is related to the HSL. Flo is an orphan, in an accident she lost both her parents when she was only seven, and since then she was living with Seb and his parents and with legal guardian George. 

Out of blue, Flo starts having nightmares; dreams that were related to other animals being tortured. George and Seb thinks those are just dreams but Flo could sense their pain and she knew it's was something more. So what will Flo do? Will Flo and Seb will be able to stop the HSL? Who are HSL what do they really do?


The Panopticon Experiment is a story that shows friendship and the non breakable bond between humans and animal. The Author Rachel Caldecott has described, the feeling of care and affection between Flo and Lonce, a snow leopard is just beautiful. Anyone that has a pet can related and feel the bond easily just as I did. I liked the detailed description of the laboratory, the camp and the island Rosendale the most and that was done remarkably well. As I read, chapter by chapter the story line became more interesting and mysterious which is great way of writing a book. The tension built and the shock when the mystery was revealed, everything was great and at the end I was satisfied that I read this book. The most interesting part of the book that I liked/ loved was, the ending fight; the rescue if I may say. 

Overall I loved the book and if you are looking for something new and unique story click on the link below and experience the friendship between Flo and Lonce by reading The Panopticon Experiment: https://amzn.to/35SM69Q

Tell Me Why By Ruth O’Neill


The Blurb: 

Lauren Adams is just an ordinary single girl, until one split-second decision throws her life into crisis.

When she meets the handsome and intriguing Max Davies during a girls’ weekend away, she can’t believe her luck. But it soon turns out to be her biggest mistake.
Max gets accused of murder, a murder that allegedly happened on the same night he and Lauren met.
Is Max really the man she thinks he is? Is he really innocent of murder? And why does Lauren hear him late at night, building something in the basement – a basement he’s made clear is out of
bounds?
Tell me why follows a woman who just wants to be loved, but who instead ends up in a tangled web of lies, deceit, and terror.
A chilling read you won’t stop talking about.


The Story:

Lauren Adams, a thirty-two-year-old a primary school teacher; loving her work and living her normal single life. She didn’t expect much from life or had any expectations, usual calls from her mother; Nancy and from her brother Jacob was enough for her to be grateful. She was excited to spend a soul weekend with her 4 fiends; Chloe, Kate, Holly, & Lucy. A two-night stay in a six-berth caravan was all they were waiting for a girls' night out. Lauren never thought or imagined this trip will change her life from a normal to a nightmare. At the first night of the trip, Lauren finds Max in every unfortunate way. But she is taken back by him and is compelled to find more about him. 

Lauren the only witness and Max being the suspect of the murder, police is convinced that Max is the killer but Lauren is sure that he is innocent and does everything and beyond to help him out of the charges. 

The story revolves around Max’s time in prison and Lauren doing her best and again her ethics to help him as she is convinced that he is nothing to do with the murder. 

So is she right? Is max nothing but a normal guy that she saw and loved or a psychopath? 

My Take: 

I will not take long but will go ahead and say it, that by far this is my favorite book. Every time I read a book, I say and describe the story to my family and my friends about the plot and story line, and in this book “Tell me why” from the very start I told my friend that, “this is going to be my favorite book so far that I’m reviewing.” And now after I have finished reading it I must say, I’m not disappointed. 

The Story is interesting and mysterious at the same time. I have read few mystery novels, and I have seen in some of them that, some time to build suspense a confusion is created first, but in this book Author Ruth O’Neill has created suspense in such a way and without any confusion that I found myself astonished and speechless. The characters are described in the best way; I didn’t feel any overshadowing of character by the mains. Lauren is a strong and beautiful woman and this story is one of the examples which shows that we can overcome any problem or struggle in life by having hope and a will to live life. The most interesting part of the book is the backstory of Max. Was there signs from the start which showed that Max is a troubled man, or it was simply just a mistake?

Overall, I loved this book and would definitely recommend everyone to read this to find out the secret of Max. Click the link and find the answer of Tell me why? : https://amzn.to/2ERKIbl

Every story is unique and not related to one another which I hoped they would at the end.
