If you’re anything like me, you must have grown up on a steady dose of fairytales like Cinderella, explored the world of magic through the eyes of Matilda and went off to Hogwarts with Harry Potter and his lovable friends. Then during teenage years, binge watching The Princess Diaries would have been your one, true guilty pleasure.

If you’ve nodded along to everything above – and of course you have, because who hasn’t wanted to find out their true identity was a princess/prince as much as they wanted to find their Hogwarts acceptance letter in the next mail! (I’m still waiting for mine, to be honest) – then The Crowns of Croswald is a perfectly blended joyride for you.

Better still, it comes with tiny, adorable dragons in tow (that cannot be pierced by the Night’s King spear. Game of Thrones, I’ve still not forgiven you for Viserion). These dragons…

Rating: 4/5 🌟🌟🌟🌟

The Eternal Struggle: An Amorous Story, by Lawrence G. Taylor, is a very welcome breath of fresh air in a world inundated with romantic novellas. The story, weaved with an underpinning of love, is essentially a study in human nature beautifully depicted through the two main characters of James and Maude.

The reader is introduced to James at the very beginning. He is shown to be a Guyanese hobby photographer and an upcoming fiction writer with a good taste in music. Despite being weary of discos as well as meaningless, faithless romantic encounters, he is talked into going to a particular disco one fine night by his best friend. He ends up meeting Maud, a free-spirited, staunch feminist with a strong personality. They meet and thereby hangs a tale.

The novella is the coming together of two contrasting characters, bound only by the ties of love or…

#Book #Release : The Point of a Gun – Steven W. Kohlhagen

The Point of a Gun by Steven W. Kohlhagen is a political thriller showcasing vigilantism against terrorism in the face of failure of intelligent agencies and the bureaucracy. Sounds interesting, right? Not only is it an intriguing read, but by way of its storyline, it also raises pertinent questions as to how the government should react to vigilantes, whether they should be allowed a free reign for the good that they’re doing, or should they be reigned in and brought to justice. The books strikes a perfect balance between two equally enthralling plots – the vigilantes’ hunting down of terrorists and the government’s/investigators’ hunt for the vigilantes. No mean task considering the vigilante group could comprise top intelligence agency insiders.
I am still in the midst of reading the book and have not yet come across a single disappointing word. It is simply riveting! I shall do my very best to have a review up for you within this week. For now, here’s a look at the back cover –

FYI, The Point of a Gun releases in September, so go grab a copy for yourself!

Disclaimer: I received an Advance Reading Copy of the book from the publisher for an honest review.

amreading amwriting book review recommendation the sleepwalker legacy

The Sleepwalker Legacy (“TSL”), by Christopher Hepworth,  hit me with a pang of nostalgia for the thrilling espionage sequences of old before I had even turned a page. This was well played, because the book that makes you feel something is the one you deem worthy of reading to the very end.

The book sets a fast pace from the very get-go. This first book by a truly gifted author opens with a dangerous tone, showing a negotiation between the Chinese Government and the protagonist, Sam Jardine, a skilled corporate negotiator. Move over, Mr. Harvey Specter, there’s a new closer in town!

After a brush with death, Jardine is on the lam, evading arrest for the suspicion of having spied on the Chinese Politburo. He is rescued by the enigmatic yet very charming (and bestowed with the disposition to use said charms to her benefit) Rachael Becket, heir to…
