Sorry, I could not get past a few pages of this book... started reading like a Hindi movie script. The hero (Shiva) rescues the heroine (Sati) from some bad guys and the heroine soon falls in love ... so on... but although it drags a bit, I thought the author's writing style was very good.

Also, one of the things that bothered me was that the author seems to have gotten the timing wrong of Shiva's growth to fame -- Shiva was worshipped already during the Ramayana times, Ravan, during his time, wrote paeans to Shiva (look up "Shiva Tandava Stotra" on youtube).. While in this book, Shiva seems to be doing his thing way after Lord Ram's time. Someone who has read this book completely should correct me... if I missed something by my brief read.

Read these other books this summer, similar genre, equally well written but the story is way more spectacularly made and engrossing..

1. Ajaya by Anand Neelakantan
2. Rise of Kali by Anand Neelakantan
3. Ashok by A. K. Banker

A. K. Banker knows how to tell a story (any story in fact).. but Anand Neelakantan is way more imaginative.

Love the way Shiva is portrayed as a man instead of God and how he is going to be God by his karma. Very well written. Must read!

Good book with a story centered around one of the most revered Gods of the Hindus- Lord Shiva. The book incorporates lots of interesting stories from the Hindu mythology like Shiva's blue throat, Shiva's dancing prowess and beautiful constructs nice, original stories around them.

Nice to see a storyline from a non-eurocentric mythology. Well written. I would read more of his work.

Good and evil are two sides of the same coin. Shiva, a Tibetian tribal leader has been tasked by Hindu priests to define evil. Though different factions declare the others as evil, Shiva only finds that the different philosophies are merely that, different. He meets a strong and lovely young woman, whose father is a very weak man. A menacing figure watches and occasionally attacks her.
