The Serpent's Shadow by Mercedes Lackey

Description: Maya Witherspoon had lived most of the twenty-five years of her life in her native India. As the daughter of a prominent British physician and a Brahmin woman of the highest caste, she has known only luxury. Trained by her father in the medical arts since she was old enough to read, she graduated from the University of Delhi as a Doctor of Medicine by the age of twenty-two. Welcomed into her father's lucrative practice, she treated many of the wives and daughters of the British military personnel who made up a large percentage of their patients in the colonial India of 1909.

But the science of medicine was not Maya's only heritage. For Maya's aristocratic mother Surya had not just defied her family, friends and religion to marry Maya's father, she had turned her back on her family's powerful magic traditions as well. For her mother was a sorceress-a former priestess of the mystical magics fueled by the powerful and fearsome pantheon of Indian gods.
