Death had been searching for just the right person that could help him regain his powers. After hundreds of years it seemed all hope was lost as those that died were now stuck in Limbo, forever suffering in pain and anguish. A ray of light appeared as a vision from a stranger led Death to Amelia, though making her a willing participant would prove to be difficult.

Featured - Frozen to Life: A Personal Mortality Experiment

 Book Info

How far would you go to avoid death?

Frozen to Life is the true account of the author’s extraordinary answer to this question: If he cannot escape the constraints of a 'natural' lifespan, he will, upon his death, have his severed head preserved in a vat of liquid nitrogen in the Arizona desert.

This book illuminates the astonishing science behind his decision, and the transformative power of the patternist thinking that carried him to it. From the initial confusion and isolation of his upbringing on the Scottish islands of Benbecula and Skye comes a curious inkling that collides with dominant religious dogmas and alters relationships: What am I? What is a 'self'? Must selves die?

Neuroscience - including the latest theories about the way mind emerges from the architecture of the brain - interweaves with philosophy, Buddhism, and personal testimony to create a fascinating and emotionally-charged insight into the psyche of a 'cryonaut' in waiting.

Written with empathy, searing insight, and dark humour Frozen to Life is both cutting edge and bleeding heart: a postmodern experiment in falling in love with life while preparing for death, in ways we can change ourselves radically without losing our treasured humanity, and in coming to understand that neither life nor death is what we think it is.

"I don’t think I’ve read a better or more poetic exploration of what it means to be. Or indeed not to be, or only potentially to be."
–STEVE GRAND, roboticist and creator of the Creatures artificial life simulation

New Release - Mechanica (Betsy Cornwell)

Kindle Edition, 304 pages
Published August 25th 2015 by Clarion Books

Nicolette’s awful stepsisters call her “Mechanica” to demean her, but the nickname fits: she learned to be an inventor at her mother’s knee. Her mom is gone now, though, and the Steps have turned her into a servant in her own home. 

But on her sixteenth birthday, Nicolette discovers a secret workshop in the cellar and begins to dare to imagine a new life for herself. Could the mysterious books and tools hidden there—and the mechanical menagerie, led by a tiny metal horse named Jules—be the key to escaping her dreary existence? With a technological exposition and royal ball on the horizon, the timing might just be perfect for Nicolette to earn her freedom at last.

Gorgeous prose and themes of social justice and family shine in this richly imagined Cinderella retelling about an indomitable inventor who finds her prince . . . but realizes she doesn't want a fairy tale happy ending after all.

Creating Monsters (Novel Review)


A psychedelic adventure set in a city on the verge of disaster.

In modern Philadelphia, where a deep economic depression has left the city near collapse and most of its inhabitants in gruesome poverty, Mitchell Gray, a twenty-year-old graduate student in a beleaguered university physics department, spends most of his time playing piano and touring the city’s worst slums in stolen cars. He is a technical virtuoso whose scientific ideas challenge the foundations of his field but he lives in hiding from one of the world's most powerful billionaires, a man obsessed with the quiet Mitchell and determined to capitalize on his strange inventions.

When Mitchell falls in love with an older woman, the wife of a wealthy pharmaceutical executive, their relationship inspires him with a mad plan use his creations to change the world. With the help of a brilliant and neurotic chemistry student named Charlie Nolan and technology so advanced that it resembles magic, Mitchell devises horrifying yet harmless schemes and supernatural hoaxes, causing an uproar in the city.

His nights as a modern day robin hood also raise the alarm of some of the real monsters in Philadelphia, including a mysterious child murderer rumored to possess supernatural powers, known only as "The Demon." Christopher Rankin's debut novel is a haunting story of love, friendship and survival in a world of revolution.



A very dark, enigmatic story that explores the familiar themes of despair, anger, and revenge, Creating Monsters is a book that is hard to put down. If you had the intelligence and ability to exact revenge, would you? The main character is thoughtful and insightful, but allowed himself and his talents to be manipulated in ways he didn't approve. Along the way to revenge, monsters are created all around him: some by his doing, some by circumstance. In the end, when he steps back to view the whole picture, what has he really accomplished? 

The storytelling is exquisite. Word choices and ease of phrasing lull the reader into this dream-like world. The haze over the city is a great metaphor for the lack of clarity most of us have for what is happening around us. At times, imagery reminded me of the dark Batman movies. 

There are other common themes in this book: vigilantism, love, losing one's parents, young scientists in a lab... Many readers can enjoy this story because of their interests in similar genres.

The biggest problem I had with the book was the editing. Many issues of missing punctuation, missing words, incorrect pronouns, homonyms used, spelling errors were throughout the entire book. Normally, this would be quite upsetting to me. However, I enjoyed the story so much, I jumped right over the problems. This may not be the case for all readers. For this book to be great, it needs a thorough editing job. For now, it is very good.

If you are a reader who enjoys dark stories, who likes to read about characters exacting revenge, you enjoy comic book characters who create a new powerful persona to seek justice, or you enjoy futuristic fantasy, please check out this book. It's the author's debut novel, and I'm excited to read more from him!

Real Virtue (GR Review)

Author - Katy Lee
Published - April 2012 #Goodreads_Review

In a virtual reality game where she can fly, someone’s aiming to take her down.

Mel Mesini is a New York City restaurateur and an avid, virtual reality world traveler. But her successful life—both online and in reality—takes a swerve the night her father is seriously injured in a hit-and-run. To make matters worse, Officer Jeremy Stiles, the man who had once cut her deep with his harsh, rejecting words, is heading the investigation.

When Jeremy realizes Mel is the actual target, his plan is to protect her—whether she wants him to or not. What he wants is answers, especially about this online game she plays. Is it a harmless pastime as she says? Or is she using it to cover something up? As a faceless predator destroys the things that matter to her, Jeremy knows he’s running out of time before she loses the one thing that matters most—her real life.

Real Virtue is an engrossing story of a Mel, young woman who flees her past to recreate herself in a whole new image. The world she has made for herself—and thinks she controls—begins to unravel when her father is injured in a hit-and-run accident and Mel returns to the home she left many years before. Mel is forced to confront reality and fantasy on many levels: her own involvement with a video game, the mystery surrounding the attempts on her life, her mother’s schizophrenia, and the qualities of the man who once rejected her and is now trying to save her. This thriller kept me guessing until the end and was satisfying on many levels. The character of Mel I found to be very difficult to connect to because she basically lived in her own worlds where she saw negativity in every situation, even the most innocent. Jeremy on the other hand took everything so personally, as if he failed, and would preach about God and religion. I am not a terribly religious person so it was a little overwhelming to hear all of his speeches about his path and purpose. The progression of Mel’s understanding of the relationship she once fled from, contrasted with the world she created for herself was as intriguing as the stalker-mystery parts of the book. Real Virtue is a great read.

The Silvered by Tanya Huff (Review)

Hardcover, 454 Pages, Year 2012
ISBN - 0756407435
The Empire has declared war on the small, were-ruled kingdom of
Aydori, capturing five women of the Mage-Pack, including the wife of the were Pack-leader. With the Pack off defending the border, it falls to Mirian Maylin and Tomas Hagen—she a low-level mage, he younger brother to the Pack-leader—to save them. Together the two set out on the kidnappers’ trail, racing into the heart of enemy territory. With every step the odds against them surviving and succeeding soar….
"I had a hard time figuring out what I thought of this book. It was fun to read, although parts of the middle did drag on a bit. The world building and the conflict between science and magic that has been set up is intriguing, and I am interested to see where this goes in future books. My main problem with The Silvered was the rather simplistic relationship between Tomas and Mirian (and, to a lesser extent, all other werewolf/mage pairings). The attraction between men and women of the wolf/mage pack seems to be based almost entirely on visceral and instant connection (whenever a wolf met Mirian they couldn't stop talking about how good she smelled). This type of instant magical connection takes away from the build-up of a strong relationship for me. I actually didn't see much of a romantic connection between Tomas and Mirian outside of the magical connection, and it seems like a kind of lazy way to set up a romance so that you don't have to actually think about what might connect two characters. Having said that, I did like the end of the book and will be reading any future volumes in the series."

Rating - 6.5/10

The Reapers are the Angels (Reapers # 1) Book Review

The Reapers are the Angels (Reapers # 1)
Pages - 225
Year - 2010
Author - Alden Bell

Zombies have infested a fallen America. A young girl named Temple is on the run. Haunted by her past and pursued by a killer, Temple is surrounded by death and danger, hoping to be set free.

For twenty-five years, civilization has survived in meager enclaves, guarded against a plague of the dead. Temple wanders this blighted landscape, keeping to herself - and keeping her demons inside. She can't remember a time before the zombies, but she does remember an old man who took her in and the younger brother she cared for until the tragedy that set her on a personal journey toward redemption. Moving back and forth between the insulated remnants of society and the brutal frontier beyond, Temple must decide where ultimately to make a home and find the salvation she seeks.


Book Review (GR)

Over a hundred people have shelved this as a YA novel. This is not a YA novel! The prose is artful and does not condescend, there is a fair amount of (admittedly half-baked, being birthed in the brain of an illiterate fifteen-year-old) philosophy that does not bear directly on the story, but most importantly, it doesn't have a YA ending.

YA novels pretty much have to have a happy ending. Or at least a triumph. Sure, the author might kill off a kid sister or a friend or two, but ultimately the heroine is going to find some measure of peace and happiness, or at least safety. There is closure of a nature reassuring to the kids who read YA novels and the neotenous adults who prefer them to adult literature.

The Reapers are the Angels has closure, but not that kind.

Temple was born after the zombie apocalypse ended most of what passes for civilization, and doesn't remember the old world. She is a wanderer by nature, with no surviving kin, but by chance she comes across a mentally disabled man for whom, quite against her wiser inclinations, she takes up the burden of escorting on a road trip to probably no longer living family on the other side of a zombie-ravaged country. Why? She never explains this herself, but it seems she just really doesn't have anything better to do.

Along the way, they encounter any number of horrors, and a very small number of kindnesses. The "meatskins" are really the least of the dangers — Temple dispatches them quite readily with a gun or her Ghurka knife. But there are creepy ordinary folks in mansions, and even creepier Texas Chainsaw Massacre-type folks in the hills. And then of course there is Moses Todd, whom Temple irks by killing his brother. Even he admits that his brother had it coming, but now he has to kill her. That's just the way it is. And like a slightly more affable Anton Chigurh, he pursues Temple and her mute companion (whom she just refers to as "dummy") across a blighted American landscape.

It is written in Southern Gothic style, and the dialect of Temple, who was born after the zombie apocalypse ended most of what passes for civilization, has shades of McCarthy and Faulkner.
It has become something to her, that memory — something she can take out in dismal times and stare into like a crystal ball disclosing not presages but reminders. She holds it in her palm like a captured ladybug and thinks, Well ain't I been some places, ain't I partook in some glorious happenings wanderin my way between heaven and earth. And if I ain't seen everything there is to see, it wasn't for lack of lookin.

Blind is the real dead.
Plotwise, The Reapers are the Angels is derivative of Stephen King and any number of zombie novels; the story is good enough, but this is the sort of book you're likely to like, or else find annoying, because of the prose.

If you are not completely burnt out on zombie novels, The Reapers are the Angels is a short, literary take on this well-worn theme. Highly recommended for YA readers as well who might like to try something a little more upmarket.

Pelican Bay (Book Review)

Pelican Bay Review by Wanda (GR)

Pages - 209
Year - 2013, Publisher - Imajin Books

"Pelican Bay begins in 1931, the year of the great depression, and the drowning of a young boy, Aspen Langsley. It then jumps to present day and the lives of Ethan Hodges and Morgan Olinsworth. Ethan loved the sea and at a very young age he met Captain Shelby, a fisherman whose ship was always docked off the edge of the bay. Captain Shelby was a man of some age. Just how old he was no one knew but, regardless, he was a friend to Ethan. Ethan’s first surf board was made by Captain Shelby when he was just twelve years old. As Ethan grew so did his love for the sea and for Morgan. Ethan was a writer and Morgan was a librarian with a strong love of books and research. They had been friends since they were kids and Ethan loved Morgan fiercely. Getting Morgan to admit any feelings for Ethan was virtually impossible but he never gave up hope.

Then, one day, strange things started happening and after three mysterious deaths, including the death of Aspen Langsley in 1931, everyone began to suspect Captain Shelby. While Ethan loved Captain Shelby he also knew there was something strange about him. With Morgan researching Captain Shelby and rumors about him flying around Pelican Bay, Ethan isn’t sure what to believe. Should he trust his fisherman friend or be wary of him? Is Captain Shelby nothing but an old fisherman that loves the sea or is he a mysterious figured that is literally a part of the sea? Join Ethan and Morgan on their perilous journey as they work to solve the puzzle that IS Captain Shelby.

I had such mixed feelings about this book. I really enjoyed the story from beginning to end and I kept finding myself wanting to know what would happen next. I did find it a little overly descriptive. Things were described with such fervor that I found it slowed my reading because I was trying to process the details, but, I DO think readers of mystery and/or fantasy will enjoy the plot. It is a book that I think would be more accepted by a young adult audience but, at the same time, I can’t in good conscience recommend it to young adults because it does contain strong language in a few places and I think the buyer needs to be aware of this in case they are purchasing the book for younger kids. Overall it was an enjoyable read.

Rating - 4/5

**A copy of this book was provided for free by the author for my honest opinion**"

भारतीय फिल्मों में सुधार की गुंजाईश - मोहित शर्मा (ज़हन)

भारतीय (खासकर बॉलीवुड़) और विदेशी फिल्मो की तुलना में अक्सर कई प्रशंषको की शिकायत होती है कि बिना सन्दर्भ, बजट को समझे बॉलीवुड की निंदा करना या उसे हॉलीवुड सरीखें  उद्योगों से गुणवत्ता में कमतर बताना गलत है। तो पहले तो बता दूँ कि भारतीय फिल्म इंडस्ट्री से हर वर्ष कुछ बेहतरीन फिल्में निकलती है, जो दुनिया भर में सराही जाती है और विश्व की हर कसौटी पर खरी बैठती है, पर यह संख्या कुल निर्मित फिल्मो का बहुत छोटा हिस्सा है। बाकी मुख्यधारा या उन से इतर आयीं फिल्मो का स्तर साधारण / बेकार रह जाता है, खासकर कहानी-पटकथा के मामले में। बहाना यह मिलता है कि जनता का यही टेस्ट है, पर टेस्ट तो धीरे-धीरे बेहतर किया जा सकता है जिसकी कोई कोशिश नहीं की जाती। ऊपर से त्योहारो-छुट्टियों के समय अगर 1 बड़ी फिल्म दादागिरी से देश की 90-95 % सिनेमा स्क्रीन्स घेर लेगी तो दर्शकों के पास विकल्प ही कहाँ होगा कुछ और देखने का? इस से टेस्ट कैसे मापा जाये?

जैसे कथानक पर एक उदाहरण देता हूँ कहानी और दृश्यों पर। "चक दे इंडिया" (2007) में हर विपक्षी टीम की सिर्फ एक स्ट्रेटेजी थी। कोई एग्रेसिव खेल दिखाती टीम थी जो प्लेयर्स को चोट पहुँचा रही थी - टेकल कर रही थी, कोई टीम मैन टू मैन (प्लेयर टू प्लेयर) मार्किंग कर रही थी, इत्यादि। यह कोई हॉकी टूर्नामेंट ना होकर वीडियो गेम जैसी बात हो गयी, जिसमे हर स्टेज में कुछ फिक्स्ड बातें होती है। असल में एक स्ट्रेटेजी ना चले तो टीम्स के पास अनगिनत फोर्मेशंस और स्ट्रॅटजीज़ होती है जो वो तुरंत बदल भी सकती है। यह अंतर होता है मुख्यधारा बॉलीवुड और बाहर की फिल्मो में।

[बिंदिया नायक टू गुंजन - "फॉरवर्ड कन्याकुमारी, कन्याकुमारी....
"ऑपोसिशन प्लेयर - "थेम्स रिवर टू बरन्हेरी पैलेस... थेम्स रिवर टू बरन्हेरी पैलेस !!
"बिंदिया नायक - आंय ?????!!!!???] :p

इसके अलावा मुश्किल में एक मुस्लमान का अपमान करने वाला पूरा ज़माना बन गया, एक बड़ा तबका जो हमदर्दी और सहारा देता है उसको नहीं दिखाया गया। फिर कोच के प्लेयर्स के अगेंस्ट होने पर सब प्लेयर्स का साथ आ जाना, जब दुनिया इतनी ढीट है की कोच चाहे कैसा भी हो कई लोग चिपके रहेंगे उस से। ऐसे ही फिल्म में कई बातों को one dimensional दिखाया गया, मैं यह नहीं कह रहा की हर चीज़ टटोलो पर बाकी संभावनाओ की एक झलक तो दिखा दो। अंत में यह बताता चलूँ की मैं इस फिल्म को बेकार नहीं कह रहा, मैं कह रहा हूँ की और बेहतर हो सकती है ऐसी अच्छी फिल्मो में छोटी बातों का ध्यान रखा जाए अगर तो। :)

जानबूझ जानकार - मोहित शर्मा (ज़हन)

अनजाने में कुछ गलत बोल निकल जाते है कभी ना कभी हम सब से, पर वो फेक नहीं होता। पर कुछ लोग जान पहचान की आड़ में आदतन अक्सर दूसरो से बातों में ऑफेन्सिव, गलत बोलते है, मज़ाक उड़ाते है, मज़े या तफ़रीह लेते रहते है, अपनी गलती नहीं मानते और अपनी बात हमेशा ऊपर रखते है। मतलब वो दोस्त या जानने वाले भी बने रहेंगे और गलत भी कहते रहेंगे। अब हास्यास्पद बात तब होती है जब आप कभी कबार ऐसे लोगो से उनके अंदाज़ में मज़ाक करें, गलत बोलें या उनके स्टाइल में डिस्कशन करें। ऐसा होने पर ये लोग बिफर जाते है, अपसेट हो जाते है की उनके साथ आप ऐसा रुखा व्यवहार कैसे कर सकते है? (नोट कीजिये सिर्फ कभी कभी की बात में उनकी यह प्रतिक्रिया, जबकि उनका ऐसा बिहेवियर आम रहता है)
उनमे से कुछ को इस ट्रीटमेंट की बिलकुल आदत तक नहीं होती वो गुस्से में पूछते है "तुम्हारी हिम्मत कैसे हुयी मुझसे ऐसा बर्ताव/बात करने की?" मतलब अपनी बारी में गिनती मत करो और दूसरा करे तो उसमे दशमलव अंको पर भी दहाड़ें मार कर रोओ। मैं काफी धैर्य से इस तरह के जानने वालो, दोस्तों को समझाता हूँ, पर एक लिमिट के बाद इनसे दूर हो जाता हूँ। रील लाइफ और ऑनलाइन ऐसे कुछ लोगो से पाला पड़ा है, उम्मीद है आगे कभी नहीं पड़े। रिलेशनशिप में भी कुछ पार्टनर्स अपने साथी से कई रोज़मर्रा की छोटी-बड़ी बातों में रूखे रहेंगे पर अगर उनका साथी वैसा करे तो सहन नहीं करेंगे। अगर पोस्ट की बात से जुड़ा कोई वाक्या (या व्यक्ति) हो तो ज़रूर शेयर करें कमेंट्स में।

METRO 2033 Novel Review (Ajay_D)

Ajay Dhillon - METRO 2033 (NOVEL) Review #421brandbeedifed#freelancetalents #Ajay_D

"This is one of the best story I've ever read in any format (comics/movies/books). Potent psychological horror, suspense and adventure mixed together to form an intoxicating blend. There is no filler in this book; each chapter gives you something new and exciting to read about. The suspense is through the roof and you want to know what happens with each passing sentence....something so rare in 500 page novels. Amazing story that takes place in a new and unique setting.

Might be little expensive for some, but the price of admission is worth it - trust me.
Synopsis: In late 2013, a nuclear war occurred. Russia was targeted with atomic bombs, causing severe radiation across Moscow. This forced the few 1000 survivors to live underground in the metro stations away from the deadly effects of radiation. Moscow has one of the largest Metro systems in the world and it becomes mankind's last refuge in this story. In addition to extreme radiation, many animals were heavily mutated into aggressive beasts, which make travel on the surface dangerous. People have formed communities in many of the stations, but there are lots of stations which remain unexplored and littered with dangers like radiation, paranormal activity, cannibals, and mutants. 

The story is about a young man in the year 2033, who has to travel in the tunnels of Metro, go from station to station, to reach the military establishment inside the Metro in hopes of eliminating a new and unknown threat (some call them the dark ones - a mutated version of man with paranormal powers) that has terrorised his home station. Considering the dangers (both humans, ghosts, and mutants), his journey won't be easy. Amazing book, from start to finish. Must read."

421 Brand Beedi Rating - A+ (Above 90%)
