Inhaltsangabe

The Simoqin Prophecies, first published in 2003 in India, was critically acclaimed and an instant bestseller. It marked the beginning of Indian fantasy writing in English.

Written with consummate ease and brimming with wit and allusion, it is at once classic sff and subtle spoof, featuring scantily clad centauresses, flying carpets, pink trolls, and homicidal rabbits.

Monty Python meets the Ramayana, Alice in Wonderland meets The Lord of the Rings and Robin Hood meets The Arabian Nights in this novel-a breathtaking ride through a world peopled by different races and cultures across mythology and history.

The Prophecies foretell the reawakening of the terrible rakshas, Danh-Gem, and the arrival of a hero to face him. But heroes do not appear magically out of nowhere; they have to be found and trained. And sometimes the makers of prophecies don't know everything they need to know...

As the day of Danh-Gem's rising draws closer and the chosen hero is sent on a quest, another young man learns of terrible things he must do in secret and the difficult choices he must make in order to save the world from the rakshas.

Kritikerstimmen

"... a cross-cultural extravaganza with a distinct Indian flavour, a dollop of Pratchett, and a hefty dose of Tolkien. There are also touches of Tarzan, Robin Hood, the Arabian Nights, Harry Potter, Star Wars, Greek myth, spy thrillers, Alice in Wonderland, martial arts films, Arthurian legend, roleplaying games, and much more... amusing fantasy, which is also pleasantly self-contained for the first book in a series." (Locu)
"In Simoqin, first-time author Samit Basu has created a wonderfully detailed alternate world peopled with a dozen species from mythologies of different cultures... And then Basu has topped it by not taking that world too seriously." (Outlook)
"Numerous delights, great and small... The Simoqin Prophecies is an intelligent, inventive delight. It marks the arrival of a fresh and very original voice." (The Indian Express
