For Tara and her brother, Suraj, the year since their mother and grandfather fled the village of Morni, has been a nightmare.
Their new stepmother is cruel and deceptive, and their father is indifferent to their suffering. Villagers have been disappearing, often returning in a strange, horrifying form.
When a new healer, Zarku, a mysterious man with a third eye possessing strange power, suddenly appears in Morni, all are mesmerized by his magic—all except Tara, who sees through his evil disguise.
With nothing but her own courage and wit, Tara tries to find her missing mother and grandfather—the true healer, in time to save her village. Alone and lost in the forest, she must enlist the help of the god Ganesh and the lord of death, Yama, or she, like others before her, will fall victim to Zarku’s third eye.
The Tara Trilogy is a middle-grade fantasy adventure set in India, and infused with Indian mythology, culture, and folklore. A young girl, armed only with courage and belief in herself, must save her family, friends, and herself from an evil healer, intent on destroying all that is precious to her.
