They thought the episode with their cousin to the east, Lady Bloodstein, was over. They thought it was something to laugh about at the grand table in fond nostalgia. But they were wrong. They were so wrong. And Castle Blanchefort has fallen!
Lord Kabyl has lost everything: his wife, his kin, his family fortune, and his home. Castle Blanchefort, once a safe haven, is overrun with enemies seeking his blood.
In what follows, he must join forces with ancient enemies and with people who do not exist. He must treat with sinister, possibly untrustworthy gods and barter away his soul for urgently needed arcane help or face certain death at the hands of forgotten tyrants and their machinations from a bygone age.
And, how can a strange science known as Mentralysis, practiced in secret in the hidden places of the League, hold the key to ultimate victory?
What should have been obvious to Lord Kabyl from the start, at last, becomes crystal clear: Foolish is he who dares possess the Ultimate Object, for misery shall be his only reward.

The Carol Of The Reactors by Vishal Suchak is a science fiction novel. Personally, I’m not a huge fan of science fiction but Vishal Suchak has changed my opinion about this genre. The first thing that caught my attention about the book is the title. I loved the way the author picked a title where the science of reactors and the art of carols are brought together.
There are some books on dystopian and apocalyptic genres, mostly by foreign authors. I think this is the first time, I’m reading something like this from an author belonging to my own country. He crafted the novel extremely well. He made sure to put the twists in the right places. That too, definitely unpredictable twists, I must say!
The nuclear contamination after the post apocalyptic situation is inevitable. When the human race is split into two groups – mutated and untainted, the United Nations asks two child counselors to announce this news to the tween-agers. The UN tries its best to keep the balance and maintain the lives of Mutants and Untainted safe. But, things don’t remain that way. Mutants’ lives become harsh in the quarantine zone and they start questioning and resisting. Conspiracy starts brewing.
Given the current situation in the world, this novel grips the readers. The plot is very intelligent. The language is easy to read. Go grab this amazing book in this lockdown period and dive into this well crafted scientific world.
The Carol Of The Reactors is the first book among The Earthlings series. Any age group will love it.
Snippet #1: “Exceptionally beautiful women must always be careful of men, my friend, especially exceptionally beautiful women with power.”
Derailed by Mary Keliikoa is a very good mystery novel I read in the recent times. The author succeeded in capturing my complete attention to the book from the start till the end.
Kelly Pruett is a private investigator who inherited the PI business from her father. When Georgette comes knocking on Kelly’s door requesting her to investigate the death of her daughter Brooke, Kelly immediately accepts the case in order to honor her father’s last wish.
Brooke is said to be hit by the local train and the case is closed by the police. Kelly starts her investigation from scratch basing on Georgette’s suspicions. Apart from the PI life, Kelly is grieving her father’s death, coping from the divorce and taking care of her deaf daughter.
Many surprising truths uncover during the investigation. Brooke happens to be an entirely different person from what her parents assumed her to be. The story is about the path Kelly takes in spite of all odds and how she solves the mystery. Kelly never gives up though she is threatened and attacked by the killer.
I must applaud the author for building such a strong and intense female protagonist. Kelly is the HERO of this novel. I like Kelly’s determination, courage and intelligence. This book is a wonderful read for any mystery lovers.
I received this book from the publisher for an honest review.
