      I was lucky enough to snag an ARC of this book from my agent and am SO VERY THRILLED ABOUT IT because Roshani Chokshi s MG debut is a masterful marriage of history, mythology, adventure, and the literary artistry of pure imagination The main character, Aru Shah, has many flaws, but is just as hilarious as the author herself The perfect heroine to lead the reader on an epic, magical adventure If you enjoy gods and goddesses, darkness, evildoers, Hindu mythology, demons, death, ethereal otherwordl [...]
