Book Description

Namaste: The Whole Story

Peace Comes From Within. Death Comes From Without.

Amit is a member of the order of shadow monks, his every waking moment is spent training his body and mind to the peak of human ability - and beyond. But the order is pacifist, a repository for deadly weapons with their safeties permanently set to "on." Until everything is taken from him, and Amit decides that turning the other cheek is no longer an option. Now, every ounce of his training will be put to the test. His epic quest for revenge will see wrongs righted - or see Amit forgotten in an unmarked grave.

Namaste includes Prelude, as well as the rest of the adventure. Join Amit as he chases Nisha's killer from boss to boss, all the way to the last place he ever expected. He will fight, and die if he must. What will be, will be. It's a Zen thing.

˃˃˃ Readers Love Realm & Sands. Here's What They're Saying About Namaste

"Having read just about everything that these guys have written (separately and together), I absolutely loved it! Suspense, mystery, mysticism, monks, murder, love, fear, blood, revenge...just about anything you could imagine (all crammed into this one episode!). I'm still trying to wrap my brain around Amit. Do I love him? Do I hate him? Is he justified in his actions or a man gone over the edge? Knowing Sean and Johnny, no matter what I decide, they'll blow it out of the water! Can't wait to read more. Well done guys!"

"Screw these guys. I have things to do but I decided to load this just to check out a serial on kindle and now I'm hooked. My dogs need to be fed, I need to change the oil in my car and I'm not sure where my infant son is. But I know where I'll be for the foreseeable future: sitting on my ass reading the sequels."

"Sean Platt, Johnny Truant, and David Wright are masters of their craft. They excel at taking all that is good and fun from episodic t.v. and monthly comics and crafting well written stories. Namaste is no exception. A tale of love, loss, and vengeance with their special skewed vision. Like the Punisher main character Amit is almost instantly likable and even before you learn his reasoning you know that he is justified in his pursuit. Like all of the authors books I look forward to the continuing adventures of Amit."

"In Namaste, Platt and Truant deftly sketch out the background, setting, and characters of their latest serial with minimal description and brief snatches of dialog, keeping the action at a fever pitch in a high-intensity Hong Kong cinema style thriller. Punctuated by scenes of graphic violence, the experiment in non-linear storytelling is effective for this short action-oriented installment. Over the course of a longer story, the back-and-forth narrative flow might grow tedious or confusing, but here the approach lends a filmic flair to the introduction of "a pacifist monk on a rampage." Fans of Chow Yun Fat or John Woo films looking for a literary equivalent should appreciate this latest Platt & Truant effort."

˃˃˃ WARNING: Namaste is the most violent thing Realm & Sands has so far written.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Wonderfully Twisted Tale 17 Dec. 2013
By Ronald W Whited - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I'm the first review? I better make it count then. Namaste is a wonderfully twisted tale by the people who brought us The Beam and Unicorn Western. It follows a unconventional monk with anger issues seeking vengeance for the murder of his beloved.

The book is well written, but not overwritten. The words did a very good job moving aside and not getting in the way of the action which is what a book like this really needs. And boy is there action. This book isn't for the faint of heart, people die in gruesome ways over the course of the book (and some of them are fairly early on).

Underneath the action is a moral center though, asking what should be done in a situation like this. There are no easy answers to vengeance, but Namaste asks the difficult questions. Sometimes the answers to those questions are just as difficult.

This is a book I think I'll come back to in a year, and get an entirely different story from, understanding the story as I do now. And I look forward to that time. Sean, Johnny, you have another winner here. Now run with it.

3.0 out of 5 stars "Namaste: The Whole Story"... the Pros and Cons... 3 1/2 Stars 10 Jan. 2014
By R. Nicholson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
"Namaste: The Whole Story" is a fictional tale of a martial arts/Zen hero, by co-authors Sean Platt and Johnny B. Truant. This Kindle e-book was approximately 197 printed pages and sold for $4.99 at the time of writing this review.

General theme (minor spoilers)

This book completes the story of Amit that began in the first installment called "Namaste" (now called "Vengeance"). Amit, trained in the martial arts in a mountain monastery, is the master of his profession. But his mission of revenge for the murder of a young women/girl friend named Nisha is in direct conflict with the peaceful teachings and philosophy of the monastery where he's spent most of his life. His hunt takes him on a circuitous route around the globe where each stop leads to more strange and unexpected discoveries. This then is the conclusion to Amit's tale...

Some thoughts on "Namaste: The Whole Story"...

The Pros:
1.) an exciting tale of revenge

2.) many great encounters... most violent and graphically described.

3.) well written with few if any grammatical or spelling errors.

4.) I thought the tender love scene with Amit and Nisha in Chapter 23 was beautiful rendered. Also the entire end-sequence was skillfully crafted and was enhanced by an impeccable sense of pace and timing.

5.) the actual plot and the unusual tangents that developed as things played out was brilliantly done.

6.) a definitive and satisfying ending.

The Cons:
1.) Chapter 10, where Jason Alfero's hypochondria descriptions were a little overdone and maybe dragged out too long.

2.) unbelievability... as per the following scene, in Amit's handling of travel concerns and his lack of documentation...
'He ... decided to 'literally' hop onto a jet, springing onto the runway as it began takeoff, leaping up and grabbing it above one of its rear wheels'.
Really guys! I know Amit's more than capable, but the lack of Oxygen, the cold and atmospheric pressure changes... meditation can only do so much... lol.

3.) Amit's prolonged indecisiveness in the first 1/2 or so of the book... he seemed to be constantly at war with himself to justify his coarse of action. I find tales of prolonged indecision and indecisive in heroes tend to make for a difficult read. I simply get weary of listening to the circular thought process regarding their hang-ups.

4.) there were many philosophical discussions early on between Amit and his mentor, Woo, regarding his spiritual and physical training that I just didn't comprehend and found quite long.

Impression:
A great first section (original first book) accompanying a truly gripping end-segment.
However there where sections in the middle that made my wonder if the authors may have lost their focus or maybe were under some time constraints. I felt it resulted in this area not being as strong as the rest of the book... it had the feeling of being rushed.

As it is... 3 1/2 Stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Zen and the art of revenge. 9 Feb. 2014
By Mike Nuttall - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
On the surface this is a book about revenge and like all good action movies it delivers on this front. However if you dig a little deeper and is much more than that. It asks big questions like " do the ends justify the means" and " can you do the right thing by doing wrong". It takes a look at anger and controlling our emotions. And it does all of these things wonderfully. It does all of these things while wrapped in violence, explosions, and lots of cool martial arts. Be warned there is a lot of violence in this book but with a message. So read it for the depth and philosophical nature of the book or read it for the kick ass fighting but do yourself a favor and read it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best eMailing List Thank You Gift Ever 21 Feb. 2014
By M. J. Brudenell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Okay, disclaimer. This was my free gift for signing up to the Realm and Sands mailing list, but I was not aware that I would get a free book when I decided to sign up. Do yourselves a favor, and sign up. These guys have a lot of great stories to come.

Let's be honest, this story has the love it or hate it potential. I happened to love it.

I thought the action sequences felt real, albeit at a heightened level. This is just what I love about good Kung Fu movies. This one was packed with its share of hyper-violence. Well, that's what I came to the dance for. Let's dance. What is important to the violence is that every kill had a purpose.

The beginning was told in a disjointed scene design that I felt helped to unbalance the reader, adding to the overall feel of the story. It was a brave storyteller choice. I'm just one opinion, but it worked. I'm not even really a fan of Memento.

This was a great read, and I am on board for another.
