5 Books You Must Read From New Authors


1. Asteria By Andrienne Enfringer

Asteria is a girl that has lost all her hopes and decides to end her life when she discovers a very handsome guy who introduces himself as Micah who advises her not to do so. This meeting with Micah will change her life forever and yet it would be the same.


Genre: Urban Fantasy

Total Pages: 261


Asteria is a Nephilim and a prophecy. The girl, working in a corporate house and leading a normal life was abducted and almost killed, to find this truth. While reading this story, I was glued to my Kindle and kept sliding page after page till late night. The story is unpredictable and surely the one where I would lose myself. I would translate it to “can’t-keep-it-down” book.


The characters Micah, archangel, and Kendra, friend of Asteria, are very beautifully crafted.  The synergy of characters and the events as it unfolds is very exquisitely done. The story of fight between angels and demons are old, yet I find Asteria that is of same genre very intriguing. Adrienne, has also created fallen angels or the angels who revolted against the prophecy and become as said.

While the story was actually moving ahead of my eyes, it ended abruptly. I had a word with the author and she said she may be launching the sequel soon.

2. Shunya by Dilip Shah

Shunya is a quest or questions that often we ask ourselves. The Author, Dilip Shah, is from, Mumbai who has created a rather intriguing character Mani and Shunya who wants many answers from life.


Genre: Fiction (Philosophy and Self-Help )

Total Pages: 120


I am slow with self-help books yet I keep pondering about the questions the answers to which were unknown to me. In the rational life and the rat-race, we often give up on introspection. This book is about looking inside, to our own existence. Many of us follow the path of eat-sleep-relish and die one day; we never know why we come in this world. I definitely felt intrigued to find out the purpose of my life.


I will not say that this is can’t-put-down book, yet the questions of Mani lingered in my mind. And I kept reading till the end to find the answers. The story also takes a new turn when Mani becomes the professional preacher with the help of marketing team while Shunya keeps his quest for answers going. The existence of God and the Creator of God are some of the questions that we shall never know, or maybe we can shift from God to the Supernatural Energy that we can feel and believe.

3.  Old Letters New Demons By Richard DeVall

Old Letter and New Demons

Old Letters and New Demons is a novel of 115,000 words and is the combined genres, Historic and Speculative, for an adult audience. In 1929 Harry Crosby shot his girlfriend and two hours later he killed himself.

Genre: Historic, Speculative, Young Adult

Total Pages: 324


I found this novel remarkable with its mixture of Egyptian mythology, literary “mythology” (numerous quotes from letters from extraordinary writers / artists taking in the Scott Fitzgerald – Hemingway – Ezra Pound – Miller – Dali generation), his depiction of history and madness original, and the overall messages relevant, demanding and very thought-provoking. If I do have a quibble, it is with his title. For me there is nothing new about the demons he depicts – or more importantly the demon – delusion. Fuelled by drugs and sex, the novel moves between different worlds and different time-periods to create a rich but appalling tapestry of illness, crime, sensation and sensationalism. Failure at so many levels is explored, and even the letters in which Ezra Pound’s friends complain that the poet should not be persecuted because “harmless” ring the somber toll.
Excellent, pathetic, farcical, extraordinary. Once you begin to enjoy and explore Devall’s narrative worlds – all interrelating at and on different levels – you find yourself compelled to read, and appreciate, Devall’s intellectual endeavour.


This novel is now available to be downloaded onto anything with a screen, a tablet, a desk top, Kindle, Nook, Smashwords, Kobo and more.

This is one of the best stories to tell to children during Halloween. The illustrations are creative and narrate the story beautifully. It is short story that has lots of joy and excitement of the child.

I narrated this story to my four year old daughter and she would want to see pictures every day and asks me to narrate it again and again. She loves their names and the germination makes her super excited. The little angle has understood the process of germination that makes the book more fascinating to her.
