Arnav Das Sharma

Overview

The timeless tale of love retold
India is reeling from an environmental catastrophe, water has replaced oil as the most valuable commodity and our cities have become nightmarish places infested with gangs, secretive corporations and powerful religious figures. An advanced form of technology enables the manufacture of humans in laboratories. In this ever-frightening world, Haksh, born in a lab, does what he shouldn’t have: he falls in love with a human. Darklands-a radical reworking of Emily Brontë’s classic, Wuthering Heights-is a coming-of-age novel about violence, revenge, transgression, boundaries and, above all, love: both all-consuming and redemptive. Dark and bleak, it heralds Arnav Das Sharma as a major new voice in Indian YA fiction.
