THE PRINCE'S SPECIAL BRIDE

DEVIKA FERNANDO





BLURB

Marie doesn’t believe in fairy-tales and needs no handsome prince to rescue her from misery – but everything changes when she falls in love with Crown Prince Christian of Taragonia. When his sister invites Marie to the palace, their lives collide and leave them both fighting their forbidden attraction.

Prince Christian has no place in his life for love or for a woman who doesn’t fit into the royal scheme of things. But vivacious Marie steals his heart and puts all he has lived for at stake. When the media gets wind of their affair, he has to make a difficult decision.

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 language, allows her to portray the characters and locales so aesthetically that they almost seem to be right there in front of you.
'The Prince's Special Bride' is only the third novel by Ms. Fernando that I've read; and I find her to be rapidly growing into a master storyteller with each one. Schnell wachsend...

WHAT I LIKED:
As mentioned earlier, the locales have been exquisitely portrayed, while the characters are well defined. Christian, Marie, Olivia, the Queen, Sebastian, all the characters sounded true-to-life. Places like the Kingdom of Taragonia, the Royal Palace, and Kuramathi Island in the Maldives are described in such enchanting details that one almost longs to be there.
An un-hurried, steady pace of narration has been maintained throughout the novel, which makes the reading all the more easy and interesting.

WHAT I DIDN'T:
Not much there to not like, really. However, I do have my two cents for Ms. Fernando. Change your proofreader, please! It pains to see typos and leftovers, in such a lovely book.

WOULD I RECOMMEND?:
Yes, I'd insist! An absolute must-buy for the readers of romance.

I give 'The Prince's Special Bride', a 5 out of 5 stars.

NO SAFE ZONE  by ADITE BANERJIE



Blurb

Qiara Rana will do anything to save her mentor and their non-government organization from ruin. Even if it means visiting the city she had vowed never to return to. But within a few hours of landing in New Delhi, she is being chased by a gunman and is a potential suspect in the murder of a high-profile businessman. 
The only person she can turn to for help is Kabir Shorey, the man who stood her up ten years ago. Past and present collide in a deadly plot of crime and greed that moves from the cosmopolitan streets of Delhi to the bazaars and villages of Rajasthan. 


MY REVIEW
Adite Banerjie, if I may say so, is a brave writer. After all, it’s not often that you see a writer comfortably set in his/her respective zones and genres, breaking the boundaries and making foray into an unknown territory. With ‘No Safe Zone’, Adite has done just that. She is famous and recognized as a romance writer, especially after her last novel, ‘Trouble has a new name’; and afte…

THE INDUS CHALLENGE by R. Durgadoss




Blurb
Bharat is in chaos. While the kingdoms fight each other, Alexander’s forces gather for the assault, their leader lured by tales of supernatural weapons and the elixir of immortality. Only one man can save the subcontinent from domination by the Greeks: the young Chandragupta Maurya, trained under the aegis of the ‘dark brahmin’, Chanakya.
When an ancient seal is found, sharing the secrets of the brahmastra, the redoubtable weapon of the Mahabharat, it is up to Rudra, young commander of the Mauryan Nava Yuva Sena and lifelong friend and confidante of Chandragupta, to decode it. Along with his fellow commandos, and with the able guidance of his guru, Rudra embarks on a quest that takes him from the snowy peaks of the Himalayas to the seas of Rameshwaram, hunting the clues that will lead him to the brahmastra. On the way, he meets the Chiranjivis, ancient beings tasked with divine duties, and learns the secrets behind his own birth and his mysterious …
