Caught between three men, Asherah has to travel to her past to know her present. Will her heart finally recognize her true love? Grab a copy of Asherah now to find out.

MY REVIEW

I fell in love with the cover the moment I saw it—the colours and the background are simply awesome. But what really catches one’s eye is the young warrior princess in the foreground. 

I just had to read the book when it was ready. What hit me strongly was the beginning when that beautiful face—yes, I mean the one on the cover—is badly injured, with one eye swollen and one half of the face covered in dried up blood. Ouch! 

But then, that’s Rubina Ramesh’s writing for you, as hard as a slap in your face, making you sit back and take note.

With such a prologue, I was completely hooked.

There was a time when I was completely crazy about fairy tales. Reading this fantasy, I realised that I have not outgrown the love for magic lands and Gods and Goddesses stepping into the land of humans and interacting with them. 

The mysterious Lord El, the most powerful being in the universe, appears like a wisp of smoke in the story. His presence is strong but he’s rarely present physically. That takes some writing skills indeed to weave those scenes. 

Then there is the handsome stable boy Hamish. He is introduced so beautifully and impactfully—racing side by side with his horse. The scene gets etched behind one’s eyelids when you read the same. 

I couldn’t help but feel desperate that Hamish and Asherah should get together. But I could see the impossibility of it as she is already wedded to the most ancient God El.

Oh God! What a tangle!

And into this is thrown a parrot that talks. Mohawk not just speaks but is extremely intelligent as well. 

The story is pretty simple and straightforward or so it seems in the beginning. There is the evil Sandor who wants to capture young Princess Asherah. Refusing to give in to his demands, she sets out to fight him. While many battles take place, Asherah winning each one of them, Sandor himself continues to remain elusive. In the meanwhile, his powers seem to increase at an incredible pace.

Will Asherah be able to vanquish Sandor and find happiness with the love of her life? Read the story to find out more.

VERDICT: If you like magic and fantasy, you should definitely not miss this latest book by Rubina Ramesh.

About the author




"My work is mostly reflections on the society with a satirical flavor. The characters in my book are people you can easily connect to and have met all your lives. I try to make the read entertaining, light and pleasant. To me, writing is a medium to spread comfort, positivity and good humor.

I have had a racing mind since childhood, which does all kinds of analysis, interpretations and conclusions of everyday mundane events but have always held my tongue tight for fear of sounding politically incorrect. I found writing to be a perfect platform where I got to finally vocalize my thoughts and ideas. 

Manju Nambiar hails from the southern state of Kerala, India. A computer engineer by profession, she now works in one of the leading firms in San Jose, California where she lives with her husband and daughter. Her hobbies include reading, hiking, playing with her daughter and catching up on the latest technologies and trends in the Valley."
