Kar­tikeya and His Bat­tle with the Soul Stealer by Usha Narayanan

Storizen Magazine - - What's Inside - - Pen­guin Ran­dom­house

Su­ra­padma's reign of ter­ror flour­ishes and the fate of all crea­tures-mor­tal and im­mor­tal-hangs in the bal­ance. Shiva's son, Kar­tikeya, must de­stroy sev­eral for­mi­da­ble asuras be­fore he can con­front the Soul Stealer and sal­vage the dy­ing, gasp­ing uni­verse. But Kar­tikeya, whisked away by mys­te­ri­ous forces to live amidst birds and beasts on a bleak moun­tain­side, is ig­no­rant of his des­tiny, and strug­gles to find his iden­tity. Not even Brahma, Vishnu or Shiva come to his aid. He can win the fi­nal bat­tle only if he can dis­cern his en­emy's weak­ness and his own in­ner strength. Will Shiva's son rise to the chal­lenge be­fore it is too late? The world waits with bated breath. . .
