Book review. SINBAD.
The story started with a whisper. The huge gigantic female appeared. She was Eris, the goddess of chaos and strife. She was also the custodian of the entire universe. She sat and saw earth by holding it in her hands. She saw few ships sailing in the sea and sent a huge and enormous creature named Cetus in the sea to disturb the travelers. Sinbad was sailing in the sea. He wanted to take the book of peace traveling to Syracuse on the ship next to his own ship. He had a faithful dog called Spike. He alarmed his crew of Chimera that they would attack the ship and take the book of peace. He got on to that ship and a fight began between the two rivals. He saw a man fighting like a lady. He thought that he had seen him anywhere. After sometime he was able to make a good guess. He was his childhood friend, Porteus. They were very happy to see each other on board. Porteus took him to a chamber where the sacred book was placed. He told that it was the book given to each city of Syracuse by gods and goddesses. The changes it place after every hundred years. Suddenly they heard a sound. They rushed outside the chamber. They were stunned to see a huge and gigantic creature with huge tentacles and a collar shaped head.
This was Cetus sent by Eris. Sinbad killed Cetus with his own skills and intelligence which impressed Porteus. Sinbad was drowned in the sea along by the tentacles of Cetus. He met Eris under there. Eris promised him to make the richest man on earth if he brought the book of peace to her. Sinbad went to Syracuse with Porteus. There he met with the King Dymas, father of Porteus and Marina, fiancée of Porteus. There was a great feast in the ballroom. Meanwhile in the high tower overlooking the city, a lone guard patrolled he sacred chamber. The music of celebration played in the ballroom could be heard faintly. There was a tiny sound, and a shadow crossed the room which blew out a nearby lamp. The suspicious guard approached. He sheathed his sword and looked down at the magical golden light that shone from the book. When the two other lamps extinguished, spooked guard spun around and drawed his sword. Eris slithered to the far side of a marble column. She blew on her hands and a smoky mask of a face appeared. It was Sinbad. She pulled the mask over her own face—-and became Sinbad. The shadowy figure of Sinbad stepped out from behind the pillar as the guard turned and saw him.

As the guard was ready to attack the shadow stopped it cold she dropped the dragger which she had taken from Sinbad after Cetus had dropped him down under the sea. When she reached the pedestal where book was placed, she victoriously held the book above her head and she slammed it closed. In a flash light went out. In the great ballroom the domed ceiling cracked and shuddered. When the Dymas and Porteus reached the balcony they saw a huge dark cloud blanketing the city. The buildings of Syracuse continued to shake and crack as the cloud covered the night sky. A short-while later jail-cell door burst open and the struggling Sinbad was thrown inside by the palace guards. Sinbad begged Porteus for his freedom. Sinbad told him everything that Eris stole the book and it was in Tartarus. He must go there and bring back the book. Porteus said him to go and steal the book himself because he thought that Sinbad was good at that job. He told Porteus to trust him because he had not stolen the book. But he Porteus refused to do that. Hen he ambassadors of Syracuse and king Dymas sentenced Sinbad to death. At last Porteus entered the room. He had decided that Sinbad would go to tartars and get the book for Syracuse.
Till the time he would return Porteus will remain in the jail. Dymas begged his son not to take that act because he was the only crown prince. The next say before dawn the outer gates of Syracuse and the Chimera was carried on a gentle wave into the ocean. When Sinbad got on board he decided to go to Fiji instead of going to tartars. As he got inside his cabin, there stood a figure over his map table. It was Marina, who was looking more comfortable in her sea farer’s outfit. She was muttering to herself. She was sorting through his stolen belongings like fragile skull of gorgon, metal amulet and a bejeweled bra. She was shocked to see Sinbad in the cabin. She told that she had to make sure that if he had taken the book of peace. Sinbad had to change his route to Tartarus because now Marina was on board. The crew of Chimera was shocked when they listened about there new destination. Sinbad pointed to the Eris’s star on the horizon and told that it was there point to reach. Eris on the other hand was watching everything with interest. She was singing and was smiling in satisfaction. The ship was passing through the narrow channel in between the threatening rocks on each side.

Out of the fog they could see strange destroyed boats. As they moved on the water dripped down the face of a woman. Marina began to hear a strange noise. The noise was faint but growing louder. Sinbad seemed to be in a bit of daze. Marina peered into the fog where she saw Sirens. From the ship wrecks watery female shapes began to slide into the water to follow the Chimera. The sound grew louder and more mesmerizing. Jumping on the side rail, spike began to bark, his hackles rose. Marina hurried to look over the side. The strange figures were now moving swiftly under the surface o the water. And then they leaped, singing their hypnotic song. They were beautiful and yet horrible. They were laughing menacingly. Marina saved the crew by using her own ideas and Sinbad’s faithful sidekick, Spike. When the crew of Chimera came out of the hypnotic zone, the dazed members of the Chimera crew thanked Marina for saving their lives except Sinbad. Sinbad on the other hand began to scold her breaking railing and moldings. Sinbad knew that he was acting like an idiot. He stomped down to the Marina’s cabin. He thanked Marina and then moved off quickly from there. The Chimera sailed over the moonlit waves steadily.
The same light hung over Syracuse that night. The cell door opened and king Dymas entered to save his son. But Porteus rejected claiming that he knew Sinbad would return. The next day Chimera moored off an unusually shaped island which had spiky ridges and was covered with strange vegetation. Sinbad made an announcement for ten minutes stay that island. The island was making strange gurgling sound. A gigantic eye opened beneath their feet which was as big as a skating pond. They all dashed back to the ship running for their lives as the fish started to dive in the water. Finally they reached their ship which was colliding with the island. In the ship Sinbad and Marina sat together for a while in a comfortable silence. Their attraction was attracted by a towering stone. Eris took the earth on her hands. She opened her hands

a strange bird shaped ice was formed. She was smiling wickedly. The Chimera was trapped in a frozen sea. A white colored bird, Roc came down searching for its prey. It grabbed Marina in its claws and took her away. Roc placed her in a giant rib cage. Sinbad climbed up to the cage to free Marina. He took her and came down to the ship, floating on ice by standing on the shield. After this Sinbad and Marina observed a change in their relationship. Then there was another flash. They had reached the gates of Tartarus. The water was now falling and it seemed to be the end of the world. The whole crew stood silently waiting for their deaths. Sinbad and Marina started to fall. After a while they saw themselves being standing on the sand. Eris appeared and asked him that would he go back to Syracuse in case if he doesn’t get the book? Sinbad shook his head in favor but he was wrong. Therefore he returned to Syracuse where Porteus was going to be executed. Sinbad came and put his head to be executed. Soon Eris arrived with the book of peace in her hands. Sinbad held it and opened it. The light of peace shone down the twelve cities. The crowd cheered up. With the book of peace returned to Syracuse, Marina joined Sinbad on board the Chimera and they sailed through the gentle waves of the sea.
