|Name of the book: Pishacha
Author: Neil D’Silva
More than a century later, when he discovers that his lover has been reborn in a rich Mumbai household, and is now a beautiful woman, his heart begins to beat again with a happy rhythm.
There are monumental obstacles in his path though, the least of which is the fact that she loves another man. But, the biggest challenge is that she is human and he is demon.
To make her his, he will have to become human again; and to accomplish that, he will have to fight holy men and witch-mothers and giants, and challenge the gods themselves.
From the best-selling author of Maya’s New Husband, comes a tragic tale of forbidden love — Pishacha.
Neil D’Silva is the author of three books. His debut, Maya’s New Husband, tells the tale of a woman who finds herself trapped in the wrongest kind of marriage, and the subsequent horrors that unfold upon her. His second book, The Evil Eye and the Charm, consists of three short tales of the Indian lemon-chili charm, each of which raises the perpetual debate between rationality and superstition using horror as their narrative element. His third book, Bound in Love, is a collection of eight short stories of dark and twisted human relationships.
Neil D’Silva also finds himself published in two anthologies. The first is Vengeance, an anthology put forward by Wrimo India, India’s arm of the global NaNoWriMo organization.

His stories and writings have appeared in the American MONSTER! magazine. He regularly puts up new stories on his website at NeilDSilva.com.
Maya’s New Husband has stayed on the Amazon bestseller charts ever since it was published in January 2015. The book is now on its way to be translated into a movie.
