‘Gripping…keeps you hooked to the plot…successfully weaves fantasy, adventure and romance…[Balagopal] manages to enthrall the reader with unusual twists and turns.’ – Hindustan Times ‘Merges fantasy with reason, making it unputdownable…never a dull moment…this complex work scores. Offers thrill, fear and erotica…evocative as it addresses questions of identity and hauntingly tries to search for the meaning of life and loss.’ – The Tribune ‘Savage Blue is like a breath of fresh air…the author masterfully manipulates the different worlds…brilliantly imaginative and leaves your head filled with colourful worlds and possibilities…such a memorable book, one that is a keeper.’ – Books and Strips From the author of the award-winning graphic novel Simian, comes an electrifying new fantasy adventure – Akila Raina, the principal’s precocious daughter, was only ten when she disappeared. Shyam, who was with her that fateful night, is daily haunted by a dream of it – a dream more grisly than reality could possibly be. Until Akila mysteriously reappears twenty years later, grown-up and gorgeous. She tells him of surreal worlds, her travels between them, her encounters with strange creatures, their own connection across the realms, and the malevolent power that lies at the heart of it all. And then she shows him… Bold and passionate, Savage Blue is an unnerving ride into unknown worlds.
