's review

really liked it

I never review books here, but am writing this since it looks like there are none, other than one by the author herself.

5 stories exploring pretty dark aspects of human nature through the exploits of Shiva in various forms, destroyer to creator, pure to perverted. The black and white art is beautiful and quite gory. The stories themselves are well written and presented in dark and twisted glory without any apology. The stories don't intend to preach or moralize, but ofcourse being derived from Purana means they do have a clear message. However that message isn't always the comfortable sweet tale modern Hindu theologists like to present. They explore the darker Hindu mythologies which are seldom taught. A very entertaining read without a doubt.
