    This was absolutely glorious fun It s a weird but entirely assured blend a high fantasy quest Dark Lord epic based in Indian rather than Euro Scand myth and landscape, which is also absolutely rammed with gags the cheaper the better , terrible puns, and affectionate mockery of fantasy tropes This is the sort of thing that s very easy to do badly What lifts this book way above is that the characters are terr

    It took me a little while to get into this book because it starts out slow, and I m not used to Hindu critter names It wasn t too long that I was completely absorbed into the book I have to admit, I really liked Basu s writing style It was fun, hilarious, quirky, and epic As I read through all of the mini adventures the characters went on, I was amazed and drawn in While much of the time the quests weren t detaile

    I like fantasy fiction unlike the vast majority of people who think that it s a disreputable form of literature and consider it only for kids I liked the book It brims over with allusions Ramayana, Mahabharatha, Greek mythology, Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, comic books, Arabian Nights etc etc The storyline, of course, is fantasy staple diet There is a Quest, and a Quest needs a Hero, who must go forth with a band of

    Imagine this A desert that s called Al Ugobi.A seagull whose name is Irik Seagull.A group of spell casters calling themselves Hex Men Now none of the above are integral to this story but why I mentioned them here first is probably because this inventive play on words is my major take away from this book Samit Basu is just superb at these things There areinteresting references throughout the book and I m terribly tempted to list

    I had given up on contemporary Indian authors, but Samit Basu gives me hope Surprisingly well written, the book is a parody of your everyday fantasy With a Dark Lord who s not so dark, a Robin Hood doubling as Lord Rama and princes falling in love with Rakshases, while damsels give knights a run for their money, this book hilariously kills all the stereotypes that your typical Hero story propounds while weaving a very interesting tale of an oncomin

    I had heard some vague stuff about Samit Basu s Gameworld Trilogy a long time ago Unfortunately, it got pushed to the deep recesses of my mind until one day, as Fate would have it, I chanced upon a copy of The Simoqin Prophecies Then I thought, Ah, what the heck Secretly I was hoping that the book would restore my hope for the future of modern Indian fantasy fiction.Guess what It did.I am a fan of Basu s style of writing His voice is refreshing, quirky, hilariou

    Find this and other fantasy reviews at Feminist QuillSamit Basu s trilogy effortlessly blends mythologies, cultures, satire and comedy into an enjoyable read If I could quote every single sentence here, I would, because not a line passes without some sort of pun, humorous aside, or frankly just a funny description.Triog s ancestors were, like most ogres, from Ventelot They were a very highly respected family of ogres, who had eaten many of the famous knights of the Alm
