Book Review: The Samsaric by G.W.Lwin
Historical Fantasy Horror
Date Published: November 17, 2015
SAMSARA: The cycle of birth, death and rebirth within the realms of existence ...
The plague of 1918 A.D.
The mortal world is in a state of devastation.
A woman wakes up in an abandoned temple of Kali, the goddess of darkness, in the ancient city of Gaya.
She does not know where she is.
She does not remember the events leading to this.
She only hears the familiar voice of a tormented man who has haunted her dreams.
He tells her a story - of a time of souls and suffering, of immortality and gods, of life and death.
This, he says, is Mesopotamia.
The SAMSARIC is a fast-paced fantasy-horror novel full of history, horror and vampirism from an ancient era.
The best part of The Samsaric is the ending. The ending was just really unexpected. I enjoyed reading this book. The story was exciting and Shuri, Eden, Sumur, and Druaga were very likable. What I didn't like is that the story doesn't feel complete. For example I wanna know what happened with other characters like Whiter and the two sisters, and also Enlil and the rest of the Samsarics. Other than that I liked this book and would give it 3.5 stars.
I received a free ebook copy for this review.
I love anything that comprises the old and the ancient full of rich history and spirituality. For me, reading and learning from our ancient past is truly a beautiful, unique and intriguing journey.
From a young age, I have felt that there were two versions of me: the old spiritual one and a young soul who still lives in his fantasy world.
However, both of these versions share one commonality - my interest in vampires from the ancient mythology and beliefs. I was mesmerised by their folklore since young.
The need to express is very strong within me. Writing, for me, provides this gateway and helps me to grow as a person. It is a life-long learning path that I gladly embark.
As a writer, I would like to improve each and every stage of writing, to possess the art of crafting words to communicate the emotions that arise from within to the readers ... a vision shared by many authors.
