The Samsaric by G.W. LWIN #giveaway #review

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.

 
 
review

This is a standalone book and is so confusing at the end, I’m not sure if there is a cliffhanger or not.  Shuri is told she is 10th reincarnation of a goddess, Inanna.  Throughout all her lives Eden has been watching over her.  Eden and his brother, Sumur, are Sansaric.  They are descendants of the goddess.  The actual backstory of the beginning of the gods and goddesses is long and tedious.  The backstory is repeated multiple times really slowing down the pace of the story.

 

>In any good paranormal story, there are forces for good and forces for evil.  The evil in this story is described in such disgusting detail that I think was intended to shock, but actually just disgusts.  There are descriptions of rape, ripping a fetus out of a pregnant woman and eating it, orgies, so much negative that I didn’t actually care about any of the story.  The story felt beyond redemption.  Shuri and her step brother, Druaga are constantly traveling, but never really find what they are looking for.

 

>The story is told in flashback, yet when the story comes back to the present, I am not sure what happened and who the two characters are.   The book itself had a lot of errors.  Eden is accidentally called Erin at one point.  If the story sucked one in, the errors sure push you out.  In this case, the story pushed me away and the errors kept me there.

 

>This story is appropriate for an adult audience.  I am giving it 3 stars for attempting to create a paranormal world.  I am a reviewer for Romance Authors that Rock.

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.
