ROYAL ARCANUM is available on Inkitt

Greeting, everyone!

As for today, I can finally announce this news to you; my book, “Royal Arcanum” from Book 1 of the Royal Arcanum series has already moved to Inkitt, perhaps for a while, or who knows for how long?

Royal Arcanum has been on Inkitt since 11 January 2018, I supposed? Yeah, about almost three weeks ago that the voice inside my head said, “Throw all the lucks”, perhaps the book will find its own way to the world, where its needs to be there, and demands to be heard.

For a while, Royal Arcanum won’t be available in any online retailers, but you can still purchase for the paperback version if you live in Indonesia.

Thereafter, Royal Arcanum is totally free to read on Inkitt, to find its own avid readers out there, who share similar love, passion, interest, and likeness with the story in the book.

If you’re out there, if you’re the one, and if you’re meant to be, you shall read Royal Arcanum… not only reading it by eyes, but if you really feel familiar with the vibe by heart, you’ll understand what I mean. It’s like this bell’s ringing in my head, and someone whispers in my ear; destiny’s calling. I still have no idea what does that mean until this second I write this to you, but everything happens for a reason, right? I believe in destiny. If it’s meant to be, it will be.

You can now read Royal Arcanum on Inkitt via iPhone/Android App, or you can visit Inkitt via browser here. Please click on the link to read the book, or you can click on the image below;

BOOK REVIEW:

Enam hari saya selesai membaca buku ini, dua minggu sebelumnya saya selalu mempertanyakan konsep spiritual tentang takdir dan pilihan manusia, apakah Allah SWT memberikan manusia kebabasan pilihan, ataukah apapun pilihan yang kita tempuh akan berakhir sesuai yang dikehandaki-Nya? Saya tidak menyangka buku yang lagi-lagi saya pilih ‘secara acak’ dari lemari buku akhirnya menjawab rasa penasaran saya! Nah, saatnya untuk review:

Topik penelitian tentang Tragedi Iblis ini awalnya dipresentasikan untuk Tesis doktoral di Universitas Harvard pada musim semi tahun 1978. Buku yang akhirnya diterbitkan tahun 1983 ini menjabarkan definisi-definisi tentang Iblis dalam pandangan yang penuh dengan kontradiksi. Entahlah apakah Peter J.Awn sendiri bingung dengan apa yang ditulisnya, pemahaman dari pandangan A bisa berlari ke B, lalu si penulis menyalahkan pandangan A dan beralih membenarkan pandangan B, lalu menemukan pandangan C, dan hal yang sama berulang, sampai akhirnya kembali mendukung pemahaman A. Tulisan dalam buku ini tidak konsisten dalam menuliskan pandangan tentang seluk-beluk dunia Iblis dan sejarahnya. Pada akhir ringkasan, Peter J.Awn mengakui bahwa kutipan-kutipan buku yang ia gunakan untuk bukunya memang didasarkan dari masing-masing tulisan para penulis buku yang hanya berpatokan pada ‘asumsi belaka’ karena sesungguhnya tidak ada yang benar-benar mengetahui sejarah kehidupan Iblis, namun semua tahu apa yang menjadi misi abadi sang Iblis, dan semua agama memiliki doktrin yang sama tentang hal itu, yakni mengoda manusia menuju jalan kegelapan.

Buku ini juga menjabarkan pemahaman yang agak ‘twisted’ dan ‘conflicted’ dengan kepercayaan religi yang sudah ada di masyarakat, yaitu saat penulis mendukung pemahaman bahwa Iblis sosok yang patut dikasihani karena terperangkap dalam kutukan abadi dari Tuhan setelah mengalami tragedi pengusiran dari surga karena menolak perintah Tuhan untuk bersujud kepada Nabi Adam. Iblis diasumsikan memiliki mata satu, ini sebagai metafor bahwa Iblis hanya dapat melihat dan memaknai jalan kegelapan dan menghiraukan jalan cahaya.

Si penulis menjabarkan dari sisi pandangan psikologi sufi, dimana benih-benih ajaran Iblis melekat pada sufi, namun sufi memandangnya sebagai kecintaan dan kasih sayang karena memilih untuk berpandangan positif, dan merubah pola berpikir bahwa segala hal terjadi bahkan tragedi dapat terjadi karena kehendak tuhan.

[Book Review] The Hush Hush Saga

This is my first book review on WordPress, actually I’m about to review four books at once. Hush Hush, Crescendo, Silence, and Finale, all by Becca Fitzpatrick. I am going to review about what I like and I don’t.

Yeay, I finished this series in about two months, I guess? (Sept – Oct)

Back in 2009, the first impression I used to have toward Hush Hush was I thought it tried to doppelganger The Twilight Saga by Stephanie Meyer, that made me hated it, more like I resented it. But guess what, I was wrong all along in a fact beyond what I never know behind the publishing industry since there were so many similarity in both worlds of those books.

Life is Unexpected Somehow

In the past two weeks, I guess, recently I feels something change within me. I don’t know how to perceive all those changes into my mind, or my brain. It’s like a slow transformation, starting from the way I dress, the way I style my appearance, the way I talk that ridiculously somehow it sounds like I came from a different era, I talk like a mature person than I used to be. Because of that, I’ve been saying this to myself, “Do you even hear yourself talking?”
