Everyone has a secret. Aisha Khatri has many! 



Aisha’s life is seemingly mundane on the surface-she writes for television and takes care of her niece Kiara and her retired father. But when Kiara’s life is threatened during a modeling assignment for the famous Kabir Rana, once a suspect for his wife’s murder, the only way Aisha can save Kiara is by accepting the unique ability she has aggressively resisted all her life. 



But Aisha is not the only one with secrets. There are others who have secrets and will kill to keep them. Aisha is determined to protect Kiara even if it means placing herself in the crosshairs of a depraved killer who butchers beautiful girls and leaves them as grotesque displays. 



Is Kiara a target of a serial killer or is the killer closer to home-and Aisha’s heart? 



Who is Kabir Rana? An elusive and moody fashion photographer burdened with a dark past or a murderer who got away? 



How will Aisha save Kiara from a killer who is several steps ahead of an entire city’s police force? When the dead come calling, will Aisha answer? 



From the bustling streets of Goa to the beautiful palaces of Sirsa, Killer Moves is a fast-paced, gripping, romantic suspense tale with strong thriller and supernatural elements.

Book Review: Matsya by Sundari Venkatraman

After I read Matsya myself, I read it out to the kids in my Creative Writing class. They were as fascinated as I was. They knew about Narasimha, Ram and Krishna but not much about the other avatars of Vishnu.

Matsya gave them not only a new story but also led to a discussion on evolution and how all religions have similarities. The Noah of Christianity, Judaism and Islam had his counterpart in Manu; both being entrusted with the same job of saving all living species from the flood that destroyed mankind.

The story is short and well written; using language that today’s kids are familiar with. A must read for parents and children.

I am definitely looking forward to reading the rest of the series with my students.

About the author
 
 
 
Sundari Venkatraman is an indie author who has 16 titles to her name, all Top 100 Bestsellers on Amazon India, Amazon USA, Amazon UK, Amazon Canada and Amazon Australia in both romance as well as Asian Drama categories. Her latest hot romances have all been on #1Bestseller slot in Amazon India for over a month.
 
Even as a kid, Sundari absolutely loved the ‘lived happily ever after’ syndrome as she grew up reading all the fairy tales she could lay her hands on, Phantom comics, Mandrake comics and the like. It was always about good triumphing over evil and a happy end. 
 
Soon, into her teens, Sundari switched her attention from fairy tales to Mills & Boon. While she loved reading both of these, she kept visualising what would have happened if there were similar situations happening in India; to a local hero and heroine. Her imagination took flight and she always lived in a rosy cocoon of romance over the years. 
 
Then came the writing – a true bolt out of the blue! And Sundari Venkatraman has never looked back.

Book Review: Rising from the Ashes by Rubina Ramesh

 

RISING FROM THE ASHES: 
A Short Story: Prequel to Knitted Tales 2 
by 
Rubina Ramesh
My Review: 

image

The author in her introduction has clearly mentioned that it is the grey areas of mythology that interest her and this is one tale that has been obscured in confusion through the ages.  She does not claim to unravel its mystery, rather she gives her take on it.

Her description of King Sambara is beautifully penned, leaving you with a slightly sick feeling in the pit of your stomach at how loathsome he is. She has also managed to catch the essence of Sage Narada when she says, “being a friend of Narada is equivalent to being an enemy of Narada” and his tremendous capacity to cause confusion.

It is indeed a short story and keeps you wanting more.

 
BLURB
 
She was one of the most beautiful woman Asura Sambara had laid his eyes on. 
 
Possessing a beauty of this magnitude became his passion. Sambara kidnapped her and whisked her off to his palace. 
 
Mayavati knows she has no option but to bow down to his wishes. But what about the young man who always haunts her dreams? She had no clue why she was in this palace but after speaking to the mischief making Sage Narada, it all started making sense to her. 
 
Who was Mayavati and what was she doing in Asura’s palace? 
 
Was Sambara her destiny? 
Disclaimer: This short story is a mythological fiction and should be treated as such. The author does not claim it to be a retelling of the Puranas. This piece is a product of her unbridled imagination.
