Fractured Legend: Review

                       Book Name:  Fractured Legend                     
Author:  Kranthi Askani
Category:  Fantasy Fiction 
Rating: 3/5 

When I got a mail from Blogadda saying I was selected to review this book, I was pretty excited. And this excitement increased more when I received the book. I was so eager to read it, that I put down the book I was reading and started with this book In the beginning I found it interesting, but as the story flowed, I found myself less and less interested in it. At one point of time, I got so distracted that I read a line many number of times before actually getting to know what I was reading. The book didn't keep me hooked like the other books. I was pretty disappointed with it as it was not even the least upto my expectations. 

When I opened the book the first thing I saw was the personalized message from the Author. I was happy to see that, as it was the first time I had a book with Author's copy and my expectations of the book increased. 
Its sad that it was not really that good as it seems from the outside. Maybe that's why they say "Never judge a book by its cover". But still I got to agree that some parts of the book were quiet good. It is worth one read even though Rs.195 is a bit much for it.

I'll give the book a 3/5 rating as it was neither too good nor too bad. I still wish the author had made the story more interesting so that he could grasp the reader's interest and hook it till the last. Still it was a good attempt from someone who is publishing for the first time. I admire his effects and wish him luck for his upcoming novels.
