    Description

    Tantrics of Old is a dark fantasy novel written by Krishnarjun Bhattacharya.

    Summary of the Book

    Adri Sen is a necromancer, a tantric, who runs from a prehistoric Horseman, Death. Death is swift and sudden, and has a tendency not to forgive anyone whatsoever. Adri must wade through threats - new and old - political conspiracies, his own demons from his past, a government, and most importantly, whispers of a looming danger! The book also depicts two cities: New Kolkata, ruled by a perfect government, MYTH, and existing in the shadow of the old one, and Old Kolkata, haunted by demons that roam free.

    India's answer to JRR Tolkien

    Without much expectation, I had started reading the book. I was not sure if I would like it as my previous attempts to read some famed Indian writers' famous novels turned out to be utter disasters. But still I thought to give this book a try considering the author's education (for a change he is not IIT passout or drop out with absolutely no control over the language). He is graduate from NID and FTII, which gave me hope that he is associated with the reading writing culture and probably wou...

    An awesome fantasy

    No doubt, the author has drawn inspiration from popular Indian myths as well as from the story-lines of RPG videogames, which i am sure many gamers will notice & find entertaining. Tantrics of Old is an awesome fantasy read, based on the fictional land of Old Kolkata, where witches, sorcerers, necromancers, assassins and such mythical beings now reside. The plot is quite interesting, with many twists & turns. If you've read & liked epic fantasy fictions like Hobbit, LOTR, Harry Potter or even...

    In one word the book is just "fantastic". I am an avid reader of books of the fiction & fantasy genre' and to be true the book is an excellent piece of work. Hats off to the Author. Such a well knit book could only be a work of an excellent author and Krishnarjun Bhattacharya seems to be making his debut with a bang. Eagerly awaiting the next book of the trilogy.

    Fresh, Deep Fantasy

    I'll keep this one short. I read a lot of fantasy, including Paolini and RR Martin and Rowling, and have also read Samit, and Krishnarjun is incredibly FRESH. There's something different about this author and his vision of the book. Something dark, enigmatic. The entire book is a tease, a build up for the next. I mean it's difficult to write fantasy book these days and not have the reader think "oh hell, this reads just like the last one". Tantrics of Old finds it's own voice, sucks you in, a...

    Captivating read

    The first few pages had me hooked. And then it was just how fast i could finish reading it. Neat and well consized the book will thrill you at every page and keep you guessing. The climax is fantastic. And at the end it will keep you waiting for the 2nd part. The best part about this book is that it has a fresh feel to it. A new world of fantasy to explore. And that too in the heart of my very own city.

    Tantrics of Old - A wonderful plunge into the world of fantasy and dystopian fiction!

    Tantrics of Old has managed to do what few others have attempted before: to spin the glorious mysteries of India into the world of fantasy and dystopian fiction. The book has been a refreshing take on the fantasy genre and is a definite recommendation for anybody looking for a twist on usual elements.

    It is a page-turner and kept me hooked from the first page. The descriptions are beautiful and vivid to enough to create the whole of Old Kolkatta for the reader. Krishnarjun's vision and thou...

    Awesome..captivating :)

    Tantrics of Old is plain awesome..and that is all I can think of to describe the book in a line :) After a long time I have read a book that deals with a topic that's rarely touched upon in books these days..the Kolkata of the past and her dark secrets. It is a fiction yes, but the places are all so familiar that you will feel like you are actually present there living this journey with the protagonist . It is almost like a Harry Potter or a Lord of the Rings tale , only difference being that...

    A BIG Thumbs Up!

    A breath of fresh air is how I will describe Tantrics of Old. More often than not, fantasy novels become inspired by the epics of old but not so in this case. The novel is by no means flawless yet the way Krishnarjun asserts his own voice and establishes his narrative is worthy of praise. He takes the city of Kolkata and completely changes it in a surprisingly zombieland-ish way. His exaggerated dark tones of the squalor and underbelly of the city and the addition of dark and sinister creatur...
