Comments SHRAYAN

  • James Goddard

    If, like me, you grew up on a diet of British and American science fiction and fantasy, you’ll know how tired those genres have become. The authors and publishers of fantasy, in particular, have been content for far too long to churn out ‘product’ in the worst way my use of that word implies. There are thousands of fantasy novels that take an ‘emperor’s new clothes’ approach to readers, because authors know that their audience has been lulled by and feels secure with an easy, undeman [...]

    Inadvertently I am the one who enjoys reading romance more than any genre for that matter when it comes to reading.

  • Rich Perrotti

    A fantastical, sensual effort by Abha Iyengar, Shrayan is a creature seemingly cursed from birth. The adventures that he winds up ensconced in bring about new definitions of the term "suffering." With that, you might suspect that the read is repetitive and predictable. Not so! The author's expert ways of spinning tales that the hero wanders into (including one world that truly "redefines" suffering in a very imaginative and unexpected way!) are usually captivating and intriguing. The ending was [...]
