    A 23-year-old woman from Delhi prowls the nights, solving macabre mysteries that involve monsters straight out of a nightmare. Cult of Chaos is an Anantya Tantrist Mystery by Shweta Taneja.

    Authors’ Reviews

    'An author with an impressive imagination and terrific storytelling skills.' - Ashwin Sanghi

    'Cult of Chaos is racy, rousing, rambunctious and rakshas-ful. Read immediately.' - Samit Basu

    Summary of the Book

    The age of the Tantriks has dawned. They operate openly with their own council, police and judiciary. Of all their creeds, the Kaula Ashram’s white tantriks are the most powerful. The men of the ashram are powerful tantriks, and the women are intimate collaborators. Anantya has forsaken the Kaula path. She doesn’t see the need for official seals. She is more concerned with saving the world than with badges or honours. However, the world is heading straight to hell. Young girls are being sacrificed in a tantrik ritual in Delhi. Someone is summoning the God of Chaos. A daeva seeks to blackmail Anantya for some desperate cause, and a giant, three-headed Cobra shows up in Old Delhi. The Red tantriks are facing the White in conflict, and there is at least one Black tantrik who is messing with perilous shakti. Anantya is caught amidst the conflict, and to add to her problems, the supernatural netherworld comes alive with its ensemble of creatures.

    Absolute thriller.

    Absolutely gripping read which leaves you wanting more.
    Taneja creates a whole new fantasy world from age old mythological show characters which we hadn't quite imagined this way and brings them to life with tantrism.
    A thriller which stays true to its genre. Buy. Read.

There’s humor to set off the convoluted business of Tantrism. The downside of the story is that there is a lot going on that causes some confusion. For me the end didn’t quite work out. It wa...
