Loving wife, obedient daughter, loyal friend. But if you provoke her, she will raise her hood and spit venom.
A woman is stalked by a man she had once rejected. A housewife discovers a plot to kill her husband. A blind young girl is chased by an underworld gang. A woman is abused by her husband and spied on by her neighbour. But these are no ordinary women. Some of them aren’t even women. In these macabre stories you will find beings that are both human and cobra – the ichhadhari nags and nagins – who are fierce in their love and ruthless in their revenge.
And they are not the only abnormals that live among us: beautiful vish kanyas whose bodies secrete poison, powerful babas who practice black magic, shape-shifting jackals that feast on human heart and liver, fearsome half-human hunters who kill mercilessly and hideous vidrupas who can unhinge you with a kiss. You have been warned.
