Updating Chandrataal this weekend. In the meantime, an excerpt from 1857 Dust of Ages: The Desperate Plan

‘Shiv! You must come here. The view… the view… is breath-taking,’ Ruth’s normally deep voice rang with a strange sort of shrillness.

Shiv walked out quickly, wondering if she had really chanced on a secret passage. But her gaze was fixed on the window, next to the staircase. Bhushan stood against the window, startled by Ruth’s sudden outburst. He looked out of the window to see what had caught her attention. Disturbed by her fixed stare, he tried to shuffle away.

‘Look out of the window, Bhushanji. See how beautiful Navgarh looks,’ her arms flayed, but the movements were jerky.

The scene looked strangely familiar. Shiv knew he had seen it somewhere but couldn’t remember where. Outside the window, the scenery was similar to the one they had seen through from the larger window in the Queen’s room. What was he missing? Shiv felt Ruth’s excitement, but all he saw was Bhushan standing against the window.

Ruth, on the other hand, was fumbling with her camera, as if getting ready to click a picture.  Slowly, she raised her hand.

And all of a sudden, things fell into place. On the display screen, it was not the startled man standing against the window or the scenic landscape of Navgarh. It was a picture they had seen earlier, of the majestic old woman, standing against the window and the staircase, looking straight into their eyes.

Ruth took a deep breath, calming herself and adjusted the settings to click a picture of a confused looking Bhushan Kumar, who had no clue of what was happening.

      Hey,Mansi.yes, they are in continuation. The first one is The Forgotten Tale and the second :The Desperate Plan. Read and comment quickly on Amazon and Goodreads so you can get the next: Silence of the Dolls, free when it releases later this month 🙂
