RISING FROM THE ASHES is a story about a goddess who transforms as she faces adversity.
This story gives such a positive message to the women of today that in spite of troubles and adverse situations there is always a way to fight it and move ahead.
The author has molded the character of Mayavati from her being a young, shy girl into the shining, valiant sorceress with elan.
The growth and pace of the story keep the reader hooked and I want to know what happens next.
Good language and a wonderful twist to mythology. Rubina is no stranger to plot twists and surprises in her stories. This one was excellent as well.
I had loved her stories in Knitted Tales and have read all her books. This prequel sets the tone for some great reads ahead. I enjoyed reading this short fiction.
