Book Description

Rakshasa is a demon. He doesn’t know where he came from or how he came to be in the first place. All he knows is that he feeds on the dying thoughts of men and that he is hungry.

Engendered in ancient times in the north of India, he wanders, doing exactly what he wants, killing when and where he pleases until he attracts the attention of a god. Fleeing for his life, Rakshasa must now come to terms with what he is and his place in the scheme of things. Hiding from the gods, he delves into the world of men, following individual lives and impacting on them. As his knowledge grows, so does his dissatisfaction and he wonders whether he must always be a demon or whether he can change his nature.

Northern India and its inhabitants are the basis of this book containing multiple stories of ordinary people, and how they are affected by the Demon Rakshasa. Max Overton presents an unexpected story of a demon in transition. The stories are interposed with a first person account from the Demon, of the part he plays in these peoples lives, where you learn that he begins a transition from a hateful demon with all that implies, into a being that begins to realise he can be something other than an angry, spiteful and harmful demon. As a result of Max Overton's meticulous research and obvious vivid imagination readers are given an insight into the daily lives of people with his stories that span Indian history from the semi-mythical days of the Mahabharata to modern day tourists. There are tales of the Indian Mutiny, of a Sultan of Delhi, of kings and woodcutters, holy men and little English girls, Buddhist priests and ironworkers, farmers and mountaineers - a tapestry of life in Uttarakhand down the ages where a demon walks through the lives of ordinary men and women. Historical fiction certainly, but so much more. A tale of lives visible and invisible, where realism and fantasy were seamlessly woven together. Wonderful stories, and a fascinating concept altogether. I highly recommend this book.
