Review: I have registered on the GoodReads giveaway of this book. Later, when the winners of the giveaway were declared, Pushpam Singh, the author, have contacted me to review his book. Well, the cover design was too tempting to reject. So I voluntarily accepted to review the book.
It was just another love story until I started reading the book. The tagline - A poetic journey of Kavi and Kavya - was hinting nothing more, too. Only if I had given more thought to the tagline, I would have discovered that the book is not just any love story. However, at the end, I was more than satisfied. It was freah Plot from the jacket : "Every soul has a shadow.
Every shadow has a shade. Every shade has a spirit. Life sprouts in the navel of Kausar, a land blessed with beautiful contours and landscapes. As life opens its eyes in the backdrop of silence and darkness, beauty wrapped in mysterious silk sings for it. On such a changing canvas of Nature, Kavi meets Kavya. Love finds a new flavour in their romance and Kausar finds a new array in their presence. But with change in the mood of time,the melody of shades undergo a change. Will these melodies sustain the test of time..? Join Kavi and Kavya on this poetic and intriguing journey to find out more About the author from between the covers : Pushpam Singh is an engineer by profession but a poet at heart.
His love for poetry found its right blend in this book.
Romantic Shades and Shadows
He lives in Bangalore with his family. He is an adventurer at heart and loves travelling to new places and meeting new people. He also has a passion for photography. His biggest dream is to photograph the whole of India. My take on the book: Cover design: It is the first book with a good cover design, I've have come across after the establishment of Frog Books.

Shades of Shadows, as the name suggests depicts various shades of story of Kavi and Kavya.
In the book Author has used a unique technique, I never heard before. He has used a combination of prose and poetry to make the story more lively and more touchy. The story starts with a conversation between two people, then slowly he describes the beginning of life on earth. Hold your nerve there as the story moves slowly into the next big event, which is sunrise.
As the story proceeds, the main character Shades of Shadows, as the name suggests depicts various shades of story of Kavi and Kavya. As the story proceeds, the main character Kavi is introduced, who prefers to stay cut off from main stream untill he meets Kavya. There is a beautiful description of Kavya coming into the dreams of Kavi in the first poem.
The way it has been put in the book is really sweet. The story moves on as Kavi and Kavya starts to explore Kausar, the place in which whole story has been set, and they start to enjoy nature.
Seasons of the year has also been described with perfect detailing. Author has described how they enjoy monsoon and then winter. Then with onset of spring Kavi loses Kavya in an unfortunate incident read it to find.. Well the names of chapters also have been chosen as per mood of the story line. White - describing the beginning Red - describing the phase of love Grey - describing the phase of sadness I totally enjoyed this new way to writing the novel, by combining prose with poetry.
It was a good read Aug 27, Abhay Juneja rated it liked it Shelves: i-own-them. Hi, I got the book as Goodreads giveaway, so thanks to Pushpam for that.
I found this book OK types, I was trying to just finish it off as soon, so I could start with something better. It is a romance which someone can fantasise about only. Looks like far away from reality. It reminds me of a quotation: "Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing, there is a field. I will meet you there. Got into the flow eventually and was reading with some vigour. The choice of shades is appreciable.
Shades And Shadows
The novel is divided in 4 shades, viz. I specially liked the grey shade, the poems in Grey shade touched my heart.

Shades of Shadow by Pushpam Singh When the author states on the cover itself that it is a 'Poetic Journey' it might not really reveal what awaits you. Turn a few pages and you are already on that journey.. The language transports you altogether to a different world which is usually known as non-existing but then the author does make you feel safe there, amidst a world where the squirrels and all other animals are in peace, the tree blooms, the lake is so clear that one's reflection can be surreal Shades of Shadow by Pushpam Singh When the author states on the cover itself that it is a 'Poetic Journey' it might not really reveal what awaits you.

The big hard room are extra loot. You should go get the priest Durance and come back. It's doable with only the mage and fighter but hard. Make sure you have Eder, Aloth and maybe go pick up Durance south from the vale. Originally posted by Nyaru :.
