18 year old Tris enters the Shakti Academy of Special children and faces the fairy tales coming alive in front of her. Fairies, vampires, werewolves, wereeagles, meremaids, witches and wizards, every supernatural and mythical creature is there and Shakti turns out to be the very school were humans are debarred from coming. Tris has the affinity of seeing Thanatos, the death god, which proves more relaxing to her, as she experiences the feelings for the immortal, which she never felt for the normal human. Enemies and friends are all around her and she has to identify them by her own. Will Thanatos warning alert her, or will she be doomed?
“Name, Tris. Age, Twenty. Blood group, O positive. Specie, human...hmm, so, no special qualities, ha?” these were the exact words of Mr Alan, as and when he had gone through my entire portion of the portfolio. “You are the first human who has ever stepped inside the academy. Joining us in the mid-term. I hope, you are aware of that?” “Um,” I had said and started to look around the weird office which was furnished with the mahogany and teak wood chairs and table. My luggage next to my legs, now and then, would catch my stare and I have to remind myself, time and again, to keep on looking towards the chair, where the Dean of the academy was seated. The kind of glares, he was passing to me, was making me slightly uneasy and all I managed was a slight smile near my mouth. The man is bald and the round glasses, seated on the crown of his nose, made him look so wise than his real image. “What do you mean by that?” he asked and gave me that inquisitive glare again, “nothing, sir.” I said, “What do you mean by the thing, that I am the only human who is entering the academy for the first time?” “Don’t you know?” he asked with a sudden force of his last words, “Shakti institute for special children is not for the mere mortals. We have some special sort of kids in here,” “Special children?” I raised my brows and re-adjusted my glasses on my nose, “Yes, our kids are gifted, Tris. We are the Academy of special talents,” Silly as it may sound, I felt like laughing at his words but controlling the urge, I smiled and said, “I don’t know about the school much, sir. What I know is, that, I am most fortunate to meet you,” Waving his hand carelessly, he said, “Look, Tris, I am not here to listen to your thank you. All I want to tell you is, that, no one in my academy, disobeys the voice of Kali, our power deity. I am her worshipper, and she is the one who tells me the candidate for the next admission.” “Did she mentioned to me, then?” I asked, and saw him smiling in answer, “No,” he said, “You are the voice of my intuition.”
At that time, I had not paid an even slightest bit of attention, but, at the turning and opening of the door behind me, I had turned and felt my entire being going shiver at the sight of that girl! She is so....gorgeous. My heart said, and brain nodded in agreement. Long straight locks till waist, glittery silver eyes, ballerina gait and a figure to die for. “Kay,” he said, “Meet Tris, your new roommate. Show her around the campus. Make her feel comfortable in the entire setting,” without uttering another word, smiling and indicating with her fingers to my side, she said, “Come with me, Tris,” “thank you,” I said to the man and have started walking towards the door, when he halted me, “Tris,” “Yes sir,” I turned, “Somehow, I don’t know why you recall me of my son. Are you sure, you know nothing about your parents?” “Sir,” I felt the side of my mouth lowering down, and the barricade of cold emotion engulfed me again, “I am sure, sir. I don’t know anything about my parents,” “Very well, then,” he said, “Kay will show you around,”
