Présentation de l'éditeur

Two People, Two Worlds: One Common Thread

Eliska was a warrior Princess; Eric a normal human. They had different Worlds. Eliska from a world where the identity is never revealed to the humans. But, Destiny had a different plan. When she was assigned the task to protect the last remnants of her race, she never expected the Dark Forces to be so strong. In the end, she had to take a decision; a decision that not only affected her world, but somehow, the destiny of Eric got intertwined with hers. Her failure to save her race brought Eric into the center of an unexplained phenomenon.
He started to meet people and visit places that were unknown to humans. But, it seemed he was connected to that world. There were signs that all these happenings were not random. Someone, somewhere had changed his destiny.

Would he know the reason of his survival? Will he come to know what Eliska did? And, Will he find his destiny?

2.0 étoiles sur 5 A for effort 18 avril 2014
Par shana - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I'm giving this two stars for effort. I don't feel that this was ready for publishing yet as it needs some work.

I haven't made it past the first chapter so I can't comment on the storyline or character development but what I've read so far leads me to believe that the author scribbled out some sentences and then looked up "fancy" words in a thesaurus over and over and over and then called it a book without going back and rereading what he'd done.

Or maybe English isn't his first language, that would explain the clunky, disjointed paragraphs.

Having said that, I applaud the effort. I really love how e-books and self publishing have opened up the world of writing and made it more accessible to anyone and everyone who dreams of weaving a tale for the world. However, just because you CAN self publish without an editor or even a basic peer review done by literate folks with a firm grasp of the English language doesn't mean you SHOULD self publish without an editor or even a basic peer review done by literate folks with a firm grasp of the English language.

I'll probably not attempt to finish this book because it's honestly annoying to try and figure out what he's trying to convey with all the words. But best of luck in your future endeavors.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Creative Fantasy Ideas; Awkward Prose 19 avril 2014
Par Dr.Gonzo - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
Full disclousure, I have not read this book, but I have a reason why. I read the sample to see if I would like it and I found the writing to be somewhat awkward. I mean no disrespect to the author, but the writing could use some polish.

From the opening paragraph of the book:

"Darkness engulfed the corners of the street and there was hardly any soul nearby. The occasional sound of the icy winter air whizzing through the leaves added to the eeriness. City hospital stood there staring at the street with a frown; its gray walls looking gloomy with intermittent lighting further adding to its spook."

I could see how some fantasy enthusiast might see past any shortcomings, but I suggest that casual readers steer clear.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Needs editing 1 mai 2014
Par Karen - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
The concept of the story could be interesting but the sentences that make no sense are just too difficult to get past. At times it seems like there's a well written paragraph and then a child wrote the next few sentences and this continues on and on until I finally couldn't read anymore.

English not being the authors first language may have contributed to word choices but it's highly distracting. The book needs some serious editing to be readable.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A VERY engrossing tale! 6 janvier 2014
Par Catherine M. Edwards - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
This is my first novel by Varun Vashist, and I sure hope it's not my last... keep writing Varun!

I found ‘Dark Shadows’, the first book in the Destiny Quest series, to be a very enjoyable read. The main characters, Eliska and Eric, are nicely developed and very believable. With the highly detailed descriptions, you can easily imagine yourself there, with the characters, in the action. The story has a notable and smoothly flowing plot - but, I'm not going to go into detail on the storyline and spoil your read!

This is a good solid read for any sci-fi / fantasy / action / adventure aficionado. An engrossing read, it pulled me in on the first page and I couldn't put it down until I'd read it all the way through.

Thanks for the good read!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Masterly Written work 26 décembre 2013
Par Shanay Davis - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
I must say that "Dark Shadows" is among the best written work in the thriller category. The author draws up a plot filled with suspense and surprises that will have you glued to every word you read. The development of each scenario and complication is skillfully undertaken. The vivid descriptions that are initially given set the standard throughout the rest of the novel and we are never at a loss for compelling imagery.

Vashist does a wonderful play on her main characters. Eric, the would be villain from a bad past, finds himself in a position where he must rise to face a destiny that has been thrust upon him for the sake of himself and the fate of Eliska's race. Eliska, the beauty and somewhat damsel in distress, has used up her last thread of hope and does the only thing she can to save her race. As these two lives become intertwined we are drawn into a story of two beings totally different but who are now one in their determination against a common evil.

All in all Vashist does a wonderful job presenting such a masterly written work. I am eager to see more from this stellar writer.
