ABOUT THIS BOOK:

Dakshesh, an old man in Sirubari village suffering from cancer, wishes to be released from the excruciating pain. He requests the villagers to take him to the three monks. They are all intrigued by the legend of the mystical three monks. No one has seen them but only heard stories of miraculous healing they offered.

Knowing that the sick man’s death is imminent, the villagers leave him alone near the Pashupatinath temple hoping that the three monks, if they exist, would embrace him on the holy land. The old man wakes up to the sight of the three monks, but only to know that they are no saints but notorious criminals.

What they tell Dakshesh in his last few breaths, shakes his entire perception of humanity and its sins. Continue reading

Genre :Adult fiction, romance, contemporary.

My review:

This is the kind of book not everyone would enjoy reading. But if you want to take a chance, go in blind! Don’t read the blurb, don’t check out the back of the cover and definitely don’t read reviews, except for the next line.
This book is challenging. You are forced to challenge your own thoughts about things you’re pretty sure of. And it’s emotional, raw , kinda hurts you so much that the characters linger on your mind way after finishing the book. So if you think you need to read something like that, pick this up.

I’ve been a loyal fan of The Raven boys series, so how could I not read the finale? Who cares if I fail in Accounts? (I do. 😧)
From the huge buildup that was the first three books and first half of this book, I thought the end would be EPIC! Because so many new factors had added as the story progressed. And when it finally ended, my exact thoughts were,
“No, that’s it? This isn’t real.”😣
Epic turned out to be Meh.. 😕
And down went my rating. Don’t get me wrong the book was enjoyable. And New ship! New ship! I got a new OTP. Not telling you, cause Spoilers but it has to do with Adam and you’ve probably guessed it already. So this book had new evil, new side characters, roboBee and lots of adventure. Therefore, Not a total waste of my precious time. Also, while I was reading this book, I kept thinking how similar it seems to Teen Wolf (The TV show) Any fans here? Because bunch  of teenagers, Supernatural problems, funny characters, seems quite similar to me. And Ronan and Derek could be considered similar. Maybe I’m just thinking this because I just  finished season 5. But I don’t know. What are your thoughts?

Who missed our fiery princess and cursed prince? I know I did. And the way the last book ended, you bet I wasn’t gonna wait any longer to read this. And I was not disappointed. Yes the author exceeded my expectations and gave me a major book hangover. So the lovers have been separated, The curse has befallen the kingdom, time to pick a side. But between bad and worst, you can only choose the lesser evil. Oh the adventure, twists and turns, secrets and betrayal kept me up all night. You already know I love all the characters in this series/duology, whatever it is. Just added a few more names to the list. Very enjoyable, I must say. Did I mention I also read the side stories? They were just as good.

Love, Alex 🙂
