it was amazing

Although Shiva’s Fire is geared for young adults, I found this book to be very intriguing. It explores the Indian culture and caste system, and how it affects the people who live there. Although some may say there is no conflict, the major conflict is about Parvati having to choose between the people she loves and what she was born to do – dance. Religion is also explored in this book, especially because Parvati thinks that Lord Shiva gave her life for the sole purpose of dancing. The novel’s main theme is to go where your destiny takes you. I’ve always wanted to explore religious and cultural differences in my writing, and this book encourages me to do so. I feel that writing more novels like this will help others understand my culture and religion.
