Six hundred years ago, humanity rose up in revolt against the Aeriels, who were driven from earth and back into their homeland of Vaan after a bloody and glorious war.
Eight years ago, Ruban’s home was destroyed and his family murdered by an Aeriel.
When a new Aeriel threat looms over Ragah, the capital city of Vandram, Ruban Kinoh must do everything in his power to avenge his family’s past and protect the future of his country.
Which is hard enough without being saddled with a pretty and pompous aristocrat, who seems as useless as he is vain. Faced with a conspiracy that might cost humanity its hard-won freedom, and accompanied by the bejeweled and glitter-clad Ashwin Kwan, Ruban begins his journey into a land where the past and the future intertwine.

You definitely need to read the book to get your answers!
I absolutely loved the book. Since fantasy is my favourite genre, I was intrigued by the blurb from the very beginning. It perfect mixture of sci-fi, fantasy, humor and adventure. The characters were detailed and well built. I loved Ashwin and I’m still drooling over him. The book is well written and fast paced with easy and understandable language. Overall I am in love with everything about this book.

A woman leaves her infant at home but finds her on a busy street in an unexpected turn of events.
Another woman wakes up in a flight hours later, befuddled, in the strangest circumstance.
A fascinating tale of a twenty-five-year-old woman that takes hold of us from the moment she enters the fifth floor of a hospital; more precisely, the psychiatric ward. Visibly terrified, she clutches at her clothbound diary, caught in the horns of a terrible dilemma—whether or not to hand over the diary to the doctor. She fears that she will be declared insane if her tangled web of thoughts unspooling in dark mysterious stories is read by the dissecting eye of a doctor.
What does this diary contain? As the novel progresses, we are drawn into characters and stories that are toe-curling, strange, and haunting in their raw intensity. What is the story of this woman? What secrets lie in the pages of her diary? And most importantly, what happens on the fifth floor?
” The choices we make define the kind
Of people we then become.
The main question here is:
Do we like who we have become? “
The story is about Savannah Khanna, a twenty-five-year-old woman from a wealthy family who came to meet a Psychiatrist Dr. Rama Berry. She hated hospitals and the smell of medicines and patients made her nauseous. But she was eagerly waiting for her appointment which she got after consistently sending emails to Dr. Berry. While waiting for her turn, the receptionist asked her to fill out some form and then I found something strange about her. She was confused about filling her name, nonetheless she wrote Sairah Khanna in the form. Later in the room with Dr. Berry she told her that she was there for her sister, but the Dr. was quick enough to notice that she was none other than Savannah Khanna ( Sairah never existed ). Savannah was hesitating to open up before the Dr. but after talking to her she handed her personal diary to her.
Rama while reading the diary analysed about Savannah’s mental health and psychological aspect of her mind. She came across the negativity which filled her life. The diary spoke a million words but none of them were of happiness- either there was sorrow or pain. The Dr. was quite amused by her writing though, she encouraged her to be a writer and told her to live her life happily rather than indulging on negative thoughts. But what actually was happening with her? What was the main reason for her pain and sorrow?
” I walked in the dark, with a heart full of love. I was carrying my soul, when Dior was enough. “
From the cover I thought of the book to be of mystery or thriller genre but it’s fiction so I was a bit disappointed from the cover. Also I loved the concept of Diary entries in the book, but they started and ended so abruptly which left me confused at times. The short entries written by the author are so emotional and painful, I actually connected with most of them. The language used is easy and understandable but I found the book dragging at points. Overall It was a satisfactory read for me.
