☕Daughter of Shattered Skies: Book One in the Shattered Trilogy☕



Under eternal night skies, Imperial Princess Issaria Elysitao is reared by her only remaining family. With Aunt Cate’s guidance, Issaria is urged toward conquest of the Daylight cities responsible for the regicide, but she cannot help to wonder if the curse meant to protect her was not the very thing her parents banished long ago. As Issaria tests the restrictions set forth by the Empress Regent, it becomes obvious that there is more to her magic than even she realized. Something strange lurks within, making her powers unstable. As she approaches her eighteenth birthday, it speaks to her and promises more than vengeance.

North of the Timeline, Prince Calix prepared to inherit Hinhallow from his warlord father on one condition: he must eliminate the growing threat of the Imperial Princess before she can receive her crown from the Evernight Witch and unleash darkness upon the rest of Ellorhys.

☕I was literally lost in the magical world created by the author, it’s a fantasy tale which intrigues the readers in a way that’s more than fantasy and magic, the storyline is uniquely crafted where I was poured with sub plots and multiple POVs made it more engaging. Fight for it and do whatever it takes to keep it safe, a princess’s life is never easy going, but Issaria’s journey is way too different, more difficult and more challenging.
.
.
Characters like Cate and Calix added multiple layers to the story, the book is really vast, reading is like entering a complete new world, it’s huge and royal! This book definitely needs a lot of attention from the readers especially because it drives the readers deep into its roots and origin. It’s not complicated as such and I really loved how the author presented it in a much sorted way than actually it could have been. If you love fantasy blended with hint of magic and action and a lot of adventure then this book is for it. I can’t wait to see what happens next, I’m in love with this book!!

Highly recommended.

🎼Songs of Shoreless Winds🎼



Life without poetry is like a body without soul. I was really mesmerized by the blurb, the title and the cover of the book and I couldn’t stop myself for reading it. This book is a collection of poems, mostly long poems, they’re devoid of rhyming scheme but that’s not what matters, basically the book is a collection of raw thoughts, the pearl like thoughts in the form of words are weaved into poems by the author and it’s a blissful experience to read them, honestly, they convey much deeper meaning than they show up!
.
.
It seems the author really thinks deeply, she is an enthusiast, an admirer of nature and consequences, she is the witness of the dark nights and bright light. The way she describes silence, it just gave me goosebumps she says, “I think colour of Silence is Orange. Not pure, mixed with pieces of yellow, Blue holds and resonate sounds, And dark isn’t silence. It’s annulment of voices”, of course you need to think what’s below the surface that’s representing the scenario and only then you know what the author is trying to convey.
.
.
Dear Dada, is again one of my most favorite poem, it just represent the most pure form of love. The author talks about freedom in almost all the poems, basically the freedom of choices and feelings and it’s like hearing her out is so beautiful in itself. I definitely loved it and I will surely recommend it.

🍷Behind the hues🍷



This is an YA romance revolving around a common boy Varun who is newly acquainted to a new environment and his life is swirling with weirdness and then he meets the girl of his dreams, probably the girl who he thinks is suitable for her.

Aishwarya is a complete different person, she is quite witty and quirky. Someone who is talented and smart. It’s Varun’s journey in adjusting with his surroundings and coping up with the life changes he is going through and the in the mean time doing everything a boy his age should be doing. This book will be extremely relatable to teens and college going youngsters because I’m sure they’ll take the protagonist as a friend. The storyline indirectly talks about the pressure and everything that comes with this delicate age.
.
.
I did enjoy the storyline, definitely it just brings back the nostalgia and beautiful memories of school life, reminds me of the good old days when things never seem perfect but they definitely were! Of course, I do feel bit more character depth would have enhanced the storyline. I loved this message and concept behind it and it surely makes a good book even for beginners.

🍷Getting Better🍷



James, an only child with no background information other than what little his mother could offer, begins a search for the side of his heritage that his mother left behind. Finding it hard to confront his past and whatever demons lie within it, he also refuses emotional support offered by others.

But Emma, a young woman having a hard time paying off college debts, begins to room with James and his best friend in a small house in downstate New York. She wants nothing more than to help James in his discoveries. But will he let her in?
.
.
🍷I so wanted to read this book for so many reasons, I really really connected with James a lot of times, James though is a reluctant character who doesn’t wanna anyone let in to help him and basically it’s not his fault. On the other hand when Emma and James properly come into a single frame, things start to change drastically because Emma is a complete different character, she wants to help, get into things that would not affect her anyways, she is quite a feminine character with her boundaries. On the other hand, Cameron is one of those characters that would stay with me forever, good, bad, happy and sad, all at once the book presents emotions on a complete different level.
.
.
The best thing about it is the writing style and short crisp chapters, after each chapter I eager to know what will happen next. This is a moving tale which presents love, friendship and forgiveness. Once the characters became familiar, it felt like I’m reliving their story.
.
.
It’s a heartfelt journey which I really loved. The message given through the plot is something that needs to be heard by a lot of us, we keep ignoring and be harsh on ourselves.

I will surely recommend it.

☕Devil in the House?☕



The murder of her sister brings Mehak back to her hometown. As she returns, she gets hold of a book that Sarah wrote before dying. The book hits some untouched wires in her brain hard, and soon the line between reality and nightmares blurs.

She realizes that returning to the city was a mistake. Sarah had some secrets that, if spilt out, would threaten her peaceful life.
.
.
☕It’s been long that I haven’t read a good crime thriller, this book really reminded of the crime journals I used to read in highschool, it has perfect amount of thrill blended with crime fiction which makes it’s more tempting. Honestly, when I started it, I had no idea where it was taking me but down the I had not idea that it would turn quite intriguing.
.
.
Honestly, the author is very good at presenting and narration, most of the thrillers while playing with the reader’s mind feel a little repetitive but I loved how scenes, characters and incidents were delivered and depicted which makes it more clear and prominent. The book specifically captures the story in a way which will confuse you for sure, characters which you will feel act weird at times will make you emotional at another point, all I want to say is, it’s hell unpredictable and that’s how a good thriller should be.
.
.
The story felt a little bit slow in the first half but as it moves forward, it’s quite fast paced, especially the last few pages. Overall, I feel this will keep the readers intrigued throughout.

Go for it.

🍷Ascension’s Reckoning🍷



As autumn fades to bitter winter, Aurelia is running out of time to follow Lucien, Aamon, and the others to the distant northern mountains where the long-lost Rior sanctuary lies hidden. An ethereal beast and dangerous storms bar the way . . . but so does the shard of memory lodged in Aurelia’s heart. Reliving her mother’s murder, she now sees herself rotting before her own eyes, unable to sleep, unable to focus her riore.

When she finally reaches the secluded valley, the truth of why the Rior have stayed hidden for a millennium is worse than anything she could have imagined. Aurelia must use her forbidden blood and the powers that come with it to save those she loves, right ancient wrongs, and close the wound that has plagued Iyarri society since the Night of Bloody Feathers.
.
.
🍷This is the third book in the series and I couldn’t believe I would come this far, I’m honestly proud of myself because this series is like a treat to oneself, especially if you enjoy reading fantasy and books with deeper imagination capacity and if you’re a creative person and looks forward for enchanting and marvelous stories then this book is for you. I was waiting to read this since a long time, I was highly eager to know how the story turns out and I was quite impressed by the way it’s turned.
.
.
Being extremely honest, this is the best and my most favorite book from the entire series because it has that aura which each chapter carries, it comes off with so much of suspense and thrill that made me want for more and more, the author’s narration is smooth but at the same time, it’s like splash!! You can’t really predict what’s next until it’s done.

Character building is top notch, especially Aurelia is the heart of the story, the storyline went with high twists but it never felt too much or bulky, it was just perfect and exactly what I would want in a great fantasy book.

I got a lot of memories with this series and especially the characters bring the nostalgia back, which I would love to relive again and again. Iyarri chronicles is definitely one shouldn’t miss.

🌻A Sightseeing Adventure🌻



This is a children’s rhyming storybook for ages 3-7 years old. It is a story about sightseeing where four children go on an adventure in Toronto. Children will learn to tell time while they explore the big city and observe various kinds of birds that are found on their walking adventure. Don’t forget to imagine what adventure is behind each green door with the sneak peek after each place they visit!
.
.
🌻 This is basically the second book in the series, both of them can be read as standalones but trust me they’re worth it. This is again one of the most insightful and informative children’s book I have ever read. The fact that it has so many colorful illustrations makes it very entertaining and attractive for kids.
.
.
The cherry on the cake is, reading it isn’t just fun but it’s like gaining lots and lots of knowledge. Children will learn about new places and birds which is the best thing. The language is very simple and I love idea and concept behind the book. I think these kind of books ignite the quest for knowledge and curiosity and it’s fun to learn new things in a fun way.

Highly recommended. Go for it, read them to your kids and siblings.

☕You, I & Humm..!☕



The story is about Meera and Arjun, how the two strangers in their mid-30s who have learned to live a single life on their terms, not bothered about the taboos directed by society. These two strangers happened to cross each other’s path several times on various occasions & yet they remain strangers in the crowd, but against all odds of how the people in their lives and destiny bring them together. As both are in their 30s, it is not that easy to accept the feeling for someone special and readily go forward with the relationship.
.
.
☕Just imagine it’s raining outside and you’re having a cup of tea on a relaxing day while reading this cute story, that would be perfect. This is such a light and simple story about two individuals who have been alone for a while and now when they finally hit each other several times, it’s taking them a piece of their hearts to go forward in the relationship. I really loved the way it’s written, it’s quite simple and raw.
.
.
Feels like watching a cute movie, reading it was really comforting and soothing, it’s quite engaging because of the characters feel very natural and relatable and I assume they must be at some point inspired by real life characters in the author’s life or surroundings because they had that aura which makes them very much like the people we meet each they, they are ready to sacrifice their feelings on one hand because and not willing to take social judgements on the other hand. It was a very easy breezy read with tons of chaotic situations and the book simply made me laugh and feel emotional at times.
.
.
Most of the story is narrated through dialogues and they way they’re delivered is quite easy to adapt to and understand. The use of hindi words and phrases makes it a fun read but people who don’t know even basic hindi would need help.
.
.
Overall, I feel this is definitely a book that’s worth reading and is quite entertaining. Go for it.

He was awarded the 1st AIDA Trophy for his research in Aesthetic Medicine (Abu Dhabi 2017).

1) Hello, congratulations for your bestseller book, what does the title say about it?

Two meanings…

(a) The book gives us a fascinating insight into his award-winning research on how he developed international protocols to reverse the damage being done to patient’s faces as a result of the complications of dermal fillers..

(b) While working in a Dublin hospital, he was accidentally jabbed with a needle from an HIV patient. He took blood test after blood test for many years until he was confirmed negative. Initially overwhelmed by the experience, he moved to New Zealand, away from everyone who knew what he was going through: his girlfriend and his colleagues. Thus, he began a peripatetic existence, working as a doctor around the world. In Saddam Hussein’s Baghdad, Treacy was arrested and imprisoned, spending days wondering whether he was going to be hanged as a spy. He worked as a ship’s surgeon in California and with the Royal Flying Doctor Service in Australia.

2) Do you remember what you wrote first? How did you develop interest in writing?

I love writing and was actually writing articles for the Fermanagh Herald nearly fifty years ago. I wrote for the Irish Medical Times and Australian journals and won ‘Top Professional Journalist in Ireland’ in 2003. The Covid pandemic gave me a chance to put pen to paper again and I actually wrote five manuscripts over the period.

3) What motivates you to keep going when you feel low?

Helping others who are less fortunate.

4) What do you usually do when you are not writing and not treating patients?

Lecturing, developing skin products, humanitarianism
In 2011, I became an ambassador for the Michael Jackson Legacy foundation (a charitable organisation dedicated to continuing Jackson’s humanitarian legacy), which helped HIV children and built orphanages for abandoned orphans.[38] In 2012, we opened the Everland Children’s Orphanage in Monrovia Liberia, which was funded by Jackson’s fans through MJL. In 2013, he opened a second Everland Children’s orphanage high in the mountains and fifty miles away from the earthquake epicentre in Mireblais, Haiti. This was on the same site where Digicel also built a new school to replace the devastated Miracle Restoration Centre in Tabare.

5) Are you a reader yourself?

Whenever I get a moment, I definitely read.

6) Describe your book in three words!

Pageturner, #inspirational, #nevergiveup

7) Share a remarkable incident from your medical career! Please tell our audience about the MJ case!

The most poignant memento I have is during a period that I used to treat Michael Jackson’s vitiligo. Nelson Mandela rang him during an application from that tube. When he handed me the phone I thought it was a concert promoter calling about a HIV concert we were organising in South Africa. After discussing the fact that we both had lived in Cape Town I mentioned that I had lived in Clifton, Camps Bay and Bantry Bay. He replied, “You know Cape Town better than me. I suppose I am really just a blow in.” I actually said, “Where did you live before that?” before Michael put his hand to his mouth, hurriedly pointed to the phone and said, “It’s Madiba!”

8) Your book is suitable for which age group? What’s one thing you learnt from your own book?

14 and up. Don’t be afraid to always tell the truth.

Reader’s view about the book:

This came from a review This book takes the reader on his fascinating adventures around the world. This book also gives you a deep knowledge into medical innovations in ways that are easily understood for everyone even if you are not into a medical background. It is a highly inspirational read. It will motivate you to move forward in your life, overcoming all the obstacles life throws in your way.

Thanks for your time! Good luck.

🌻Lit Soul: My Journey Back to Faith🌻



Lit Soul: My Journey back to faith is a collection of poetry written in four sections about love, loss, finding your place in the world, and coming back to what you can’t see, which is faith. It’s an honest telling of poet Jessi’s life from the age of 6 years old to the present day. It’s having faith again and growing it stronger through each section. It’s a place to find that we aren’t so different after all. Each poem sheds light on ideas and concepts we deal with every day, from the pandemic to black lives matter.

🌻Heart of home is where people exist only to be restraint in fear of lies.

  • Jessi Hersey

This is such a wonderful and heartfelt collection of poems which just brightened my week and made me believe in the power of love, God and life in general. The book is divided into sections which makes it convenient to understand the intent behind the particular poems. The illustrations in the book are so vibrant and beautiful, they truly compliment the author’s writing.
.
.
I have read a lot of poetry books but there is something very special about this one because the poems have dates, they just bring the nostalgia in an authentic way, which I really admire and appreciate.

My most favorite poems are, Fly, Rose, Maniac mind, A Child, Death, Dr. MD MD, Falling apart and Miracle.

I definitely loved it and it’s a vert short read which will keep you glued throughout. Go for it.
