I loved reading about the gods, godessess, and demons of the ancient hindu religion. It is an excellent read about the rich culture, traaditions, and foods of India.
I liked that Callie did not need Shiv to rescue her out of the situations and that she was a strong, independent girl.
I really enjoyed this story, it was interesting and had lots of action and surprise twists. It was fun to see Callie grow as the story progressed and she started on her quest. I can’t wait to see what she does next!
Fun read. Romancing the Stone and Indiana Jones but with a female protagonist. Loads of mystery, adventure, mythology and romance. Great for young adults currently enjoying “The Fault in Our Stars” and “Hunger Games”.
This is a very interesting book which introduces the reader to Indian mythology. After reading this, I want to know more about Indian culture and I want some Indian food (some very yummy sounding food is described). I really like the main character Callie. Think about all those heroines who can’t think of anything else except for their love interest, no matter if the world is about to end. She gets distracted only for a short time (she is a teenager after all) but then she focuses on the main problem like fighting the bad guys.
Just some points bothered me, mainly concerning the enemy. The enemy sets a trap for Callie and she walks in, but there are only two demons. If I were a old, powerful demon trying to conquer the world and only this girl is standing in the way, I would send a lot more demons to get her or kill her. And there are other occasions where things are solved a little too easily. It’s not a walk in the park, but the demons could have done more damage than they did. But other than that, it was a very good read, well paced and it got me interested in the Indian culture. I am looking forward to the second book
In Realm of the Goddess a YA novel by Sabina Khan, sixteen year old Callie discovers that she is actually an incarnation of the goddess Kali and she must now prepare to defeat a host of demons determined to bring the world into chaos.
An awesome adventure story that hooks you in and refuses to let go until the shocking conclusion.
More please!

Fascinating mythology, lots of action and journeys to remote islands all make Realm of the Goddess a great read. I would recommend it to anyone who loves adventure and intrigue.
