Ash Mistry and the Savage Fortress - Signed Copy, by Sarwat Chadda
"Sarwat Chadda does a fantastic job bringing Hindu folklore into the modern world, especially the most famous tale, and my personal favorite: the Ramayana. Ash Mistry travels with his family from London to India to stay with relatives while his father consults on a strange archaeological dig. Soon, Ash discovers that demons and gods are alive and well, and he is called upon to save the world from the rise of the Demon King Ravana.
Super fun adventure story where myth meets modern, Indian style!
. . . I can't wait to read more!" – Rick Riordan
Breathtaking action adventure for 8 to 12-year-olds. Ash Mistry, reluctant hero, faces ancient demons… and comes into an astonishing, magical inheritance.
Varanasi: holy city of the Ganges.
In this land of ancient temples, incense and snake charmers
Where the monsters and heroes of the past come to life
One slightly geeky boy from our time
