I've always liked Indian mythology though I can't say that I know a lot of them. Just what I've learned in high school when I had to take World Religion (religion is sort of a requirement in Catholic high schools). Anyways, going into this story, I have to admit that it felt a little foreign to me but when the different gods came up, I was more familiar with the stories. I thought that this story was a great new myth and the cultural references in it makes it a great read. It also emphasizes the importance of courage, growth and righteousness. It is a story of a young girl's fight for survival when she's already lost so much. It's her self-growth and independence as she learns to overcome her struggles and become who she can be without relying on others. At the end, there is a sort of indication that the evil is not vanquished.. but then there's always that balance in the world.. with good, there is evil. As much as I found all these aspects a great thing for a story... I have to admit that the story took a little struggle to get through. I'm not entirely sure what it is. The writing was detailed, descriptive, yet easy to read. The content is filled with inspiration and a great adventure. But whether I would recommend it to others? Maybe to those interested in Indian mythology. For the general population of reader? Well, I guess it's up to you to decide for yourself.

This a great mystery book for everyone. I love it and whenever I need a good book to read, The Third Eye is sitting on my shelf waiting.

After saving a boy using unwanted and uncalled for images, Karen finds herself at the center of attention. Some desperate, some seeing her as a freak of nature. When Karen has just had it with being a freak of nature, the children at the nursery Karen works at are kidnapped. Feeling responsible for their kidnapping, she teams up with police officer Ron to find the stolen children. But once they are found, Karen finds herself with Ron, who is wounded and a gun in her face. Karen is the one with the third eye and Anne is in the hospital. Who is left to save her?
