About the Author:

Sarwat Chadda has lived and travelled throughout the world, from China to Guatemala. He's been lost in Mongolia, abandoned at a volcano in Nicaragua and hidden up a tree from a rhino in Nepal. Not to mention being detained by Homeland Security in the US and chased around Tibet by the Chinese. Maybe he just has that sort of face. Anyway, now he's trying to settle in one place and avoid trouble. Hence his new career as a writer. It's safe, indoors and avoids any form of physical danger. Throughout his travels, Sarwat has soaked up the myths, legends and cultures of far away places. Now, with the Ash Mistry series, he aims to bring these unfamiliar tales of eastern demons, of blue-skinned heroes and of black-skinned goddesses back home and put them beside the exploits of Achilles and Thor. His heroes are Prince Rama and the demon-slaying Kali. Isn't it about time you met them too?

Review:

"A fabulous, action-packed modern take on Indian mythology. I can't wait to read more!" - Rick Riordan "a must read for anyone who likes their action fast, their demons terrifying and their heroes bruised, bloody and still fighting on" - We Love This Book This thrilling adventure is full of the excitement of an Indiana Jones or The Mummy movie and will reward readers with an interesting mix of Indian mythology and life or death thrills" - Carousel "Make time for this novel, because it is very hard to put down." -Jane Barrer, United Nations International School, New York City "Nonstop action and likable teen characters will attract fans of fantasy quests such as the Percy Jackson books and the saga of Nicholas Flamel." - Kirkus Reviews "...fans of Riordan's Kane Chronicles, Indiana Jones, and the like will appreciate this non-Western take on fantasy adventure." - Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
