"The Sacrosancts: Journey Unleashed"
"The Sacrosancts: Journey Unleashed" by Naveen Manohar is a book that has found a unique place in my heart. I had the benefit of working with the author and got to see this book really come to life. It is an adventurous story that I will certainly read more than once.
"The Sacrosancts" is a suspenseful adventure through historical periods. John, Eddy and the stray dog, Kina, start their journey in a coal mining town. Eddy is a young boy that is tormented by voices, visions and all around scary experiences. Why these things happen to him has not only Eddy baffled, but his father, John, scared for the boy's well being. Deciding to give Eddy a break from the visions they head towards the town of Hamlet. That is where the adventure really begins to get interesting.
I would have to say that my favorite part of this book is the witty dialogue. Eddy seems wise for his age, and some of the comments he has with John, and the monologues with Kina (the stray dog) make me smile and laugh. This book is the type of book that, the more you read it, the more the characters come to life.
If you enjoy historical novels with a dash of adventure and mystery, then this is a great book for you to pick up. Naveen Manohar is an aspiring new author, and I look forward to seeing more of his works out on the market. It is an easy and enjoyable read, perfect for cuddling up under a blanket with tea on a rainy day.
