About the Author
Mahtab Narsimhan, a native of Mumbai, has always been fascinated by Indian mythology, fantasy, and adventure. This came together with the unique cultural and spiritual energies of India in her debut novel, The Third Eye, which won the 2009 Silver Birch Award. The Tara Trilogy (with sequels The Silver Anklet and The Deadly Conch) has received critical acclaim. She lives in Toronto with her husband, Rahul, and her son, Aftab.
Description-What if the only way to get rid of your worst enemy was to sacrifice your brother? When hyenas snatch Tara s brother, Suraj, and two other children from the local fair in Morni, Tara and her newfound companions decide to rescue them on their own. And Tara soon discovers that Zarku, her nemesis with the third eye, is back and intent on revenge. A deadly game of hide and seek ensues, and Tara and her companions must work together to survive. But it is soon clear that Zarku is only after Tara; the others are dispensable. Should Tara risk the lives of her friends? Or can she once again defeat Zarku and save her brother, armed only with belief in herself and a silver anklet?
