snap26.11.14I interviewed the wonderful Sharmishtha, last December. I can’t believe it’s been that long ago to be honest. Feels like just a few weeks. This could be due to the fact that her interview was so popular, she won the Author of the Month Spotlight and had her book highlighted on my blog for a whole month in February this year! ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ย Here’s: Sharmishtha’s Interview


Spirits of darkness and light




sharmishtha basu



Spirits of darkness and light is a wonderful collaboration of fantasy short stories with characters both brooding and dark while others are mysterious and beautiful.


Sharmishtha’s stories are captivating. Her characters although purely original bring some of India’s mythological creatures to light with a style of writing that can only be attributed to that of a true mistress of story-telling. Nothing is what it seems as each incredible tale keeps you wondering what is going to happen next with endings that are in no way predictable. A thoroughly enjoyable read!

Due to the language barrier, there are a few issues with the translation of certain phrases, but they do not hinder the stories or the concepts being portrayed. ย Sharmishtha’s creativity is truly remarkable.

I have therefore rated this book as Four Stars! ๐Ÿ™‚
