Product description

Review

“[A] provocative debut novel…Das’ ferociously exact prose pierces through the skin of the fantasy novel to reveal the savage heart of darkness that beats underneath.”- Asian Age/Deccan Chronicle

“"[Das] has redefined the modern Indian fantasy novel."- Vogue India

“One of the most satisfying fantasies to come out of India - or anywhere - in the last 10 years.” - Nilanjana S. Roy, author of The Wildlings and The Hundred Names of Darkness

"[Das'] prose relentlessly pulsates with life; it is stark and achingly lovely." - The Telegraph

"Surprisingly, there aren’t many contemporary or Indian titles that can serve as a yardstick for Das’ speculative fiction. His first book seems to inhabit a genre all by its novel self. It couldn’t have been easy to do, but the author has adeptly transported the werewolf from London and Paris of the 20th century to present-day Kolkata. The effect is curiously unsettling."-The Hindu Business Line

Product Description

In a dusty caravanserai in seventeenth-century Mumtazabad, Cyrah, a young wanderer, meets a man who says he is a monster. Their encounter fills her with revulsion and dread, yet changes her forever. In present-day Kolkata, college professor Alok Mukherjee meets a man who claims to be a werewolf. Alone and estranged after a divorce, Alok is drawn to the stranger’s hypnotic allure, unable to tell delusion from truth, trickery from magic.// Beginning in Mughal India by the foot of the Taj Mahal and ulminating in the lush, dangerous forests of the Sunderbans in twenty-first century India, The Devourers is a story about shape-shifters, hunters with second selves who prey on humans and live in the shadows of civilization. But it is also about what it means to be human, and the transformative powers of love. Utterly gripping and wholly original, it reinvents the literary fantasy novel for India, imbuing it with depth, emotion and richness.
