Shanti’s ability to create an alternate reality and conjure a vivid vision of her character defying his father and succumbing to his heart’s desires is a testament to her expert writing skills. This story is a short read at only 10 pages, taking me just under ten minutes to complete. But, the laughter, surprise, and empathy I experienced during my read was well-worth the time taken to enjoy this all-too-brief, engaging tale.

Zin just wants to be a musician but his overbearing father expects his future prince to be a scientist and warrior. The best scientist and warrior in the galaxy to be exact. Talk about pressure. Ease up Pops. Mischievous Zin decides the show must go on, so he does what any eight year old runaway would do… he steals a ship.
The guards are in hot pursuit of the tongue waging scalawag but they can’t catch the rogue prince. Blast off!
This adorable story by Lyra Shanti gives you a glimpse of what a troublemaker Zin Ra is destined to become. It brings back memories of my childhood, good and bad. I too am guilty of hoodwinking my parents. I never stole a spaceship, but I can relate.
A high-speed, space hop leaves the hellion homesick, Zin’s Wild Ride is a vibrant voyage.
It truly is a short piece, you'll zip through this on a coffee break, but it's a nice little dip of the toe into the Shiva setting.
I won't give too much away about the story - suffice to say an eight-year-old prince is about to learn a lesson when going on the wild ride of the title. But it's fun, the author writes with zip and enthusiasm, and it makes you want to know more.
I suspect I'll come back to read this after the novels again, when it'll feel more like a DVD extra to the series - but as an introduction to the world goes, it's a fun read that reads like a fable in the midst of the sci-fi landscape.
You’ll find yourself rooting for Zin’s zany notion to escape Planet Ohr by hijacking his father’s spaceship and taking off.
While only a few minutes are required to read ten pages, the cerebral aspects of this story are profound and long-lasting because the author scratches the surface of Zin’s rebelliousness when he defies his father, and gets a taste of freedom by doing so.
“Zin’s Wild Ride” works as a standalone story, even as it increases the reader’s appetite to devour the Shiva XIV series one book at a time.
I was sorry it ended, more Shiva please!
