About this Book:

As an opportunist, Istrae yearns to get off her home island and visit Kerth, the City of Light and Abundance. Her preferred method of travel, however, didn’t include drowning.

She begins to piece them together with the help of a spirit bound to a statue and an ambitious army captain called Rime she enjoys teasing. While Rime guides Istrae in her new life, it becomes evident the rigid rules of society and the city’s Temple do not welcome those who seek to shake the established rules, which is something Istrae is incapable of resisting. Island Girl is the first book in a fresh epic fantasy series Strands of Existence with tones of adventure and a splash of romance. A whole new world with its own laws, intuitive magic, and religion.

My Review: 4/5 stars


 

About this Book:

Through a granddaughter’s narrative, peek into the phenomenal triumphs that led to a “Gratitude Celebration,” a Thanksgiving tradition.
The story centers on William Brewster, ancestor to many, father of the pilgrims and the nation, who perseveres through dividing issues of his era. Living in an oppressive state that deems him an outlaw, he must hide before indenturing himself to servitude. Knowing the suffering endured by the tiny fraction who lived to tell of the horrific sacrifices it took to survive in the New World, he shepherded his family onto the Mayflower to voyage to undeveloped lands on a foreign continent to make a new home.
This short exposé connects the holiday feast to both of the first victorious American settlements Jamestown and Plymouth, covering Queen Mary and King James; notable sea captains during the pirate era: Newport, Smith, and Argall; First Nations Indians: the Powhatans, the Wampanoag and their chiefs, Powhatan and Massasoit, as well as crucial pilgrim allies Pocahontas, Namontack, and Squanto. Historical pictures provide visual accompaniment to an epic that passes on these early ancestor’s spirit of survival, hope, and actions for an amicable future.

About this Book:

The book ‘Transition Keeper’ takes save-the-world plot to a whole new level. What if Artificial intelligence balanced the world on its imaginary shoulders? Just picture it for a moment. AI managing everything in the world, making sure that we don’t destroy the world with our wars and safeguard it from natural catastrophes. You would do anything to make sure that nothing happens to it. Even if it meant one-week off. This book is set in a futuristic world where an AI New Babylon is basically the new God. But as Gods in every mythology chose a messenger, the AI chooses a Transition keeper to handle the world while it upgrades. The curious thing is that no one knows who the Transition Keeper is but everyone is after him/her. (Yep, not gonna give spoiler).
