On the outside, he is a Pishacha – a terrifying demon compelled to eat human flesh to survive. Yet, inside, he has a tender heart that still pines for the lover of his previous human birth. More than a century later, when he discovers that his lover has been reborn in a rich Mumbai household, and is now a beautiful woman, his heart begins to beat again with a happy rhythm. There are monumental obstacles in his path though, the least of which is the fact that she loves another man. But, the biggest challenge is that she is human and he is demon. To make her his, he will have to become human again; and to accomplish that, he will have to fight holy men and witch-mothers and giants, and challenge the gods themselves. From the best-selling author of Maya’s New Husband, comes a tragic tale of forbidden love — Pishacha.

Neil D' Silva has efficiently and effectively done a lot with this book. I have taken off the keener points that will highlight why this book deserves great mention in the "Do Read" category:
He has pushed the age criteria to a younger reader base ie. teenagers
He has blended love and horror and it is no mean feat
He has done a great job of explaining the ghosts and goblins in the Indian context within the story itself.
Though the book starts off with horrific elements and detailing, it eases out on that as the story progresses and seamlessly blending it with the love element.
Neil very subtly yet effortlessly (though I am sure he must have had to draft and re-draft so many times) showcases how fear can ally itself to the personal boundaries of knowing what you can or can't do. Fear definitely leads to an understanding of self.
The ending puts me into wonder....Will this book have a sequel? If yes, then I'm figuring out what all it would consist of.... isn't a book supposed to do that? Make you think more? :-)
Like always I won't reveal the story and play spoilsport. However, my verdict is go for it! Young Adults out there... do pick up this book!

This paranormal romance is currently available as eBook and it was my first ebook read on Kindle. The paperback will be available soon. You can download the ebook from Amazon.
A ghost is a ghost until considered. What if the ghost is a demon who loves you because of your beauty or his lost love?
Mr Neil D'Silva has formulated an unforeseen trepidation of a demon loving a girl in a self written book called PISHACHA. This book drenches all the characters of horror, fear and bold imagination love story which cannot be thought without wonderment.
"If you don't deal with your demons, they will deal with you, and it's gonna hurt." But if the demon wants to deal with you since you are his love?
The story is simple yet mesmerizing with the crumple shot of character and plot-line. It starts again after centuries later when the demon realizes that his lost love is found near the sea cost of Marine drives in the city of dreams - Mumbai. The character of a girl intrudes to be a temperament with the flesh eating demon. The story forms with the twist and turn at various saturation and enables to ruminate the climax. It is full of unearthly-related words mystic or which we say Paranormal Activities. It will make you deal with that love never dies. It grows, gets lost and then can be found again. The story will help you to understand the deals with life, death and the third world of living the nonliving dead bodies but the immortal spirits and souls also that they die but the feeling of emotional trauma and situations are verified to them as well.download
Blogger's View Point
Personally, I have never read a Novel of this genre. I am called as a bibliophile only to some extended love stories, fiction and non-fiction of a limited writers or publications. But, the serendipitous plot written by Neil stands up to the mark of consideration to be a good Writer of not only PISHACHA but of his other compilations too. The book will disguise in a different way if you read and it won't make a waste of money. Go, grab your copies soon. Discover a new taste of book and trust me this will make you to get more books like this. Neil D'Silva you did a great job in the making of PISHACHA. Now, I am going to get your other anthology after posting this blog.. Cheers!
Cover - 4.5/5
Blurb - 5/5
Plot - 5/5
Thrill - 5/5
Characters - 4.5/5
Overall - 5/5
Plot, adherence to the genre, language, characters and originality. The sixth would be well researched or not in cases of mythology, sci fi or something to do with a signficant populace, in this case history)..
Plot - No need to question, this is Neil D Silva's book. He can even scare the daylights out of you with this one. Unlike his previous book Maya's New Husband, Pishacha is a fresh concept based on a "krodh pishacha". What is it? Read the book to know. Complete 5/5 for me
Adherence to the genre - Started in bits and pieces, but its pace is quite slow. To expect the horrors you need to run through the initial chapters. Hence, 4/5
Language - Lucid and plain, like in his erstwhile novel Maya's New Husband. Neil did work upon it and this novel is a much needed bolster for a prodigious horror author like him. 5/5
Characters - No compromise. Characterisation was quite solid. Munirayyan, Yug, Nakul, Malini, Dev... Every character did stand apart and justice to whatever they were assigned. 5/5 again.
Originality - Can't question about its sanctity. The climax again proved to be a hair raising experience. First of a kind book about a krodha pishacha, and this comes from a reviewer who was once learnt tantric scriptures sitting in graveyards of Maa Kali. 5/5 to Neil for this one
Well researched - Well, obviously it is. 5/5 again
So, concluding the review the average of 5, 4, 5, 5, 5 and 5 comes to 4.8 hence rounding off the averages I provide it a 5 star.
