This and other reviews can be found on The Psychotic NerdI received an ecopy of this book in exchange for an honest review THOUGHTSMy knowledge of Indian mythology is very limited All my knowledge of Indian mythology basically comes from the Tiger s Curse series To be honest, my knowledge of mythology from any culture comes from books So, I really wanted to see of a lot into this mythology and I ended up diving into a great book When Callie was a child in India, she was given a skull medallion [...]

Never underestimate a pissed off girl with a sword And with that simple phrase, Sabina Khan takes readers on an epic, whirlwind adventure in her debut novel, Realm of the Goddess.Set both in the United States and India, REALM is the fast paced, coming into herself tale of Callie and her Rakshakari, Shiv Khan s rich writing, detailed descriptions, and well developed characters enthrall the reader as they follow Callie from the halls of her high school to the jungles of India The dialogue is smoot [...]
I love mythology fantasy books and Sabina Khan s realm of the goddess did not disappoint Filled with Indian gods and goddesses and angsty teenagers in a gripping, fast paced plot to save the world, what else could you ask for Well besides MORE good news, this is the first of a series so we lucked out I love take charge of your destiny heroines in YA because I want the younger generation to find themselves emulating that sort of mindset to not just let things happen to you, to be part of it all.I [...]
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
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.
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.
I liked that this story has a strong female protagonist and I also found the Hindu mythology very interesting There is plenty of suspense and action, as well as a bit of romance An enjoyable read.
Hey guys, so I just finished Realm of the Goddess by Sabina Khan and whew.ngodsat went by rapidly Seriously,the entire story was fast paced, like one moment the main character is doing one thing, then next she is like onto tomorrow afternoon or something I think the author writing in such a rushed fashion hindered and helped the story For one, the travel scenes werent too much of a bore, however, I would have liked some interaction between Shiv and CallieG I love Shiv He is justmhmmmmere aint n [...]

This is a very interesting book which introduces the reader to Indian mythology After reading this, I want to know 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 f [...]
Are u f ing kidding me This book is full of crap you shouldn t do as the main character The demons are in this warehouse.let s just walk in the front door without backup Or the pendant glows when she s in real danger but she dismisses every warning like it s only a bug buzzing in her ear There s no romance between her and shiv when there should be She is too stupid to see Ben is in love with her She really doesn t show much friendship with Ben yet at the end she picks Ben over shiv and the world [...]
DNF at 20% Realm of the Goddess has been sitting on my currently reading shelf for awhile now I picked it up in January and read the first bit in a few sittings I was so excited when I stumbled across this book for the first time I mean, it s an urban fantasy novel that incorporates Hindu mythology into the fantasy lore and it s written by an Indian woman and about an Indian protagonist That s fucking awesome It s so rare to come across fantasy books featuring characters of color, much less Indi [...]
I love books that are based off of mythology so the plot for this book caught my attention immediately I never knew that much about Indian mythology and was eager to learn Having known the author through some friends I went into this book with low expectations however they were blown away The first couple pages drew me in immediatly, the writing so detailed and vivid I felt as if I was there myself I could barely put it down This book also made me search the Internet in order to find some defini [...]

Callie has been plagued by bad dreams for years, off and on, but she thought moving from Kolkata to Seattle had put an end to the torment It turns out that was only a temporary reprieve as the story begins, Callie s nights are again disturbed by violent scenes from ancient battles.Unusual urban fantasy with Hindi mythology and an Indian American heroine.Full review strangecharmbooks 2015 1
Realm of The Goddess is an entertaining book for all ages not just young adults At times it could be a young love story and at others it was a adventure with creatures The mixture of both is what made the book and that is why I am giving it a 4.5 5.
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.
