The story takes place in the Broken Empire and focuses on the adventures of Prince Jalan, a self-proclaimed liar, womanizer, coward and cheat, along with his companion Snorri Ver Snaggason. Who says courage is needed to be a hero?
Even though ‘The Lightening Thief’ is meant to be a Children’s book (or, young adult), I don’t see why adults can’t enjoy it. This book (and the series) is a complete package, full of entertainment, humor, good story, good characters, good pace and good writing style.
Before I even go to the book review I’d like congratulate the author for his tremendous efforts in bringing this book to reality. Not only the concept is quite commendable, the presentation of the book, including the book cover, bookmark and everything else is great.
I would like to award this book with four stars out of five. The topic chosen by the author is a critical topic that can only be dealt with care and compassion. The story is about Hazel Grace and Augustus Waters, both victims of different kinds of cancers. The main story starts off when Hazel Grace finds a blue-eyed boy staring her throughout a Cancer Support group in the literal heart of Jesus.
“Wings of Courage” as the name suggests is a story about courage. Whose courage? Yours and mine if we really decide to juice out something from it, beautifully portrayed through the protagonist Saksham. The story is about Saksham, a fairly rich boy, just when he was about to finish his graduation, undergoes a series of incidents and finds himself struggling between his love life, his career, and the socio-political condition of India.
‘The Mystery of Bila Land’ is a well-weaved, amusing book written by Nitish Krishna. I must congratulate the author for being a good story weaver. I really loved the overall plot. The story revolves around Vibhas, a boy who had been having strange dreams of a warrior meditating at the foot of snow-capped mountains. The dreams are mostly overwhelming and troubles him. And, that arouses in him the interest of mountain climbing.
