    1. I am the author of this book, so of course I'm prejudiced, especially for Anantya, the girl who's doing everything in this fantasy that I would dream of doing. Playing the bad girl role to perfection. But I won't tell you to buy the book. Instead, just putting down here what other authors and mainstream media till now've said about the book. What other Authors said:‘Cult of Chaos is racy, rousing, rambunctious and rakshas-ful. Read immediately.’ – Samit Basu‘An author with an impressive [...]


    2. Bizarre. Bewitching. Bold. (Mind) Blowing. Reading Cult Of Chaos has truly been an experience - flights of fantasy and imagination unbound to new worlds of supernatural terror, Tantric thrills and pulse pounding action. I'm gonna have to take a break, a few deep calming breathes before I can relive this and be sane enough to write a review. Phew! Originally reviewed on my blog here: bit/1vGOWv5 Say hello to Anantya Tantrist: A notoriously bad-ass supernatural detective who has a penchant to smok [...]


    3. I had attended the Book launch for Cult of Chaos at Atta Galatta, Bangalore. By then I had already attended a couple of book launch and I thought I knew what to expect. Instead, Shweta Taneja took me by surprise with her “Occult-Detective Quiz” at the launch party instead of the usual speeches and Q&A session. It was quite fun even though I failed miserably at the quiz and also did not win any of the book hampers! The launch kind of set the stage for the book, which I delved into with gr [...]


    4. Indian writers creating the word of fantasy is rare. Mostly are busy writing of what happened in past, but Shweta Taneja’s Cult of Chaos— a fantasy sprinkled with the touches of dystopia is indeed an attraction to a reader. Since the time I received the book, the cover meticulously designed, I knew this book will be a good one to read. To arouse my interest, I read first few pages and was amazed by the amount of humour used. The story is set in Delhi and surroundings, which has been taken in [...]


    5. Wow, I loved this book. Indian fantasies are rare and this is the best one I've read so far. Shweta Taneja sticks to Indian mythology and creates this amazing world. This idea is wholly original and fresh. The plot twists were great and the characters too. Anantya is a strong and crazy character. She has amazing survival instincts. In some situations, I thought that she would need help but she managed to survive alone.The one part where she comes face to face with the dad was perfectly written. [...]


    6. 100 points to Shweta Taneja for the ingenuity of the story and the setting. At a time when fantasy fiction in India is riddled with just re-writes of our Ramayana and Mahabharata, Shweta dares to create a new fantasy universe of her own. And sets it alongside the modern Delhi that we all know of, at once adding believability and intrigue to the premise. This is still a fantasy, mind you, it talks of a world filled with daevas, rakshasas, spirits, crazy animal mutants, and a lot of other supernat [...]


    7. It's a world within a world. But it's not the world of humans and mammals only. It's a world of asuras, daevas, asuras and tantriks too. Organizations and people blended together to make it a perfect society but there are problems brewing somewhere and it's up to Anantaya the tantrist to overcome and fight the odds. Her fight is not against a single enemy but from multiple enemies and it is bound to be a wretched affair. So will she be able to restore peace to Delhi and it's people? Will her cla [...]


    8. A hot beedi smoking & bike riding chick carrying a mandala and boneblade comes to your rescue… isnt that just fantastic ?? Set in dystopian delhi where the tantriks have set up their own organization and are at par with the other governmental organizations is the story of Anantya Tantrist (Cool Surname :D).The story is fast paced merely spanning a week of horrendous killings at a sweet spot every night of the week with the same situations. The reader is introduced to a variety of creatures [...]


    9. I was really looking forward to this book not the least because it starred a badass woman Tantric detective (or Tantrist) from Delhi. Cult, Magic (Black and White), Murders et al, this is a book that graphically depicts it all in a simple language and style. It took me some time to get into the rhythm and characters and all the stuff that was shooting out from all sides but once I did, I just couldn't put it down and stayed up until the wee hours of the morning to finish it. And even though the [...]


    10. I always wondered why nobody attempted a modern take on the Indian paranormal, after all so many Indian writers are re-writing mythology! Someone finally did and how.Its a part pot boiler, part feminist, part fantasy and just pure fun. As an introduction Anantya was great but in the following books I would like a little more depth to her - her demons need to be charted out.All in all a fun read and look forward to the next two book.


    11. I loved it! The characters, the setup, etc are imaginative, creative and so well-crafted. I am officially a fan of Anantya - so full of spunk! There were even a few side characters that made me laugh out loud - Nawab Sahib, Prem Chhokra! The one "negative" I might point out was that it took me some time to get used to the new tantrik terms and characters. Once i got more familiar though, the book was un-putdownable, especially the second half! Great work!


    12. I really don't understand Tantrics or black magic, Neither do they fascinate me in anyways. So I had my doubts when I picked this up. But the book was surprisingly good to read. Fast paced, interesting thriller. I did feel lost at times with many kinds of magic and techniques but the fact that the author has tried to build a world where tantrics, ausras and humans all live together and where technology is making use (or mis-use) of magic is fascinating


    13. Mindblowing, simply mindblowing. The level of detail that the author has gone into while crafting the main protagonist and the milieu in which the story is set is something that needs to be read to be believed. Read my full review at mahabore.wordpress/2015/0


    14. Like her "Ghost hunters of Kurseong", author Shweta Taneja has delivered another fast-pace, excellent read. The details about tantrism shows the good research that has gone into the writing. The main character Anantya and her trials and tribulations go at a very fast pace. I cannot wait for the second and third books.



    15. Cult Of Chaos-By Shweta TanejaIn an era when youngsters are more into the lovie-dovie stuff, comes the mysterious and adventurous novel Cult of Chaos. Plot:In a world that has their own tantric society council and laws, a girl is being sacrificed every full moon in the shadow of a black tantrik ritual. As soon as Anantya Tantrist comes to know about the dark happenings of Tantrik world, she pledges to stop and solve the mystery behind those acts. Every sacrifice that takes place lefts Anantya mo [...]


    16. Author-graphic novelist Shweta Taneja's ‘Cult of Chaos’ is a fantasy set in the underbelly of Delhi with a liberal smattering of Tantrism and magic thrown in. I won’t call it a dystopian world, it’s more like a time in future where Tantriks live alongside normal people and have their own little world within this world. Theirs is a society with humans as well as daevas, Danavas, ghosts, Rakshasas, Dasyus. The Tantrik world comprises of the White, Red and Black Tantriks whose magic and rit [...]


    17. In an alternative modern-day New Delhi, supernatural forces have come into the open: the tantrics, who have always practiced a form of magic, have formed an official government organization; gods walk among mortals disguised as fat businessmen; nagas and other supernatural creatures haunt special, magical bars; and one lone woman tantrist works as a detective, trying to keep these supernatural beings from killing each other – or at least, clean up after they are done.Anantya is an incredibly s [...]


    18. What started of as a cacaphony of physical characteristics, temperaments, and catchphrases turned into an extraordinary adventure – detailed to extents which I had long believed Indian authors to be incapable of reaching. Anantya’s story is undoubtedly refreshing. What I loved most about it was the combination of tantrism, mythology, and science – with twists and turns and wild takes on all three subjects. I think that was what really made it truly impossible for me to stop reading – to [...]


    19. I'd have given it four stars, as a light-hearted romp through demonology, pain and murder (and Delhi traffic), if it weren't for the amazingly sloppy editing. For example, p70 introduces the obnoxious Central Tantrik Association, and refers six lines down to CAT, after which we have the Central Association of Tantriks through the book: the reader has to pause to figure out that these three are the same. A deliberately hard-to-follow plot (and the book has one) is one thing, but this is cruel and [...]
