Rating: 5/5 stars

Magical even with few chapters

First of all a huge thanks to the author and her team for providing me with a copy of the book to read and review

Feral was a fantastic treat especially for being a fan of the Ruby Iyer series. The book no doubt is a read that is capable of being taken up as a standalone as , the major part of the book runs so strong and independently from the original series that you won’t have trouble comprehending as to what is going on in the chapter and its toward the end where you see the connection of the book to the original series. To enjoy the surprise and appreciate it, it’s better that one is acquainted with the original series of Ruby Iyer Diaries.

I would suggest to anybody who picks this book up to not miss the background that is being provided in the beginning of the chapter because that makes the story perfectly clear and pristine for you as skipping the background would only complicate the story for you.

In very few chapters, the author has managed to bring out the magic of a fully fledged novel with everything weaved together in a fast yet gradual and smooth progression. I had fallen for the author’s work from the very first book and it was fired more with the rest of the series including this one.

One of the best things about this book and the rest of the author’s work is definitely her language quality. Her language has been constantly lucid, pristine and silky which in turn makes the reading experience even more enjoyable. You don’t pay attention to anything else except for the story and it just grabs you in which in my opinion is one of the best trait an author can exhibit. True Power play of words.

Grab this book if you had been a fan of the Ruby Iyer series for obvious reasons and if you haven’t tried the author’s work before, let this be the incentive to try her works that would make you a fan of her work.

(I should definitely be getting paid for this review … I am not known for being nice to authors and this was a full on worship 😛 )
