Sarwat Chadda (www.sarwatchadda.com) was brought up on the adventures of the great medieval heroes like Saladin and Richard the Lionheart. His passion for storytelling grew from his love for the history, culture and myths of Europe and the Middle East.
Sarwat used to be an engineer, working on projects like the Channel Tunnel and Hong Kong airport, but now he writes full time. He has travelled widely, from China to India, from Nicaragua to the Yemen, but there's no place like home, and home is London.
Devil's Kisswas his first novel.
Gr 9 Up-In this sequel to Devil's Kiss (Hyperion, 2009), Billi SanGreal the only female member of the Knights Templar, discovers a powerfully psychic child. A pack of all-female werewolves kidnaps her, and Billi and crew must head to Russia to face them and their goddess, Baba Yaga. There they are assisted by the Bogatyrs and their leader, Ivan, a descendant of Anastasia Romanov. Ivan and Billi quickly develop a bond when she saves him from a ghul (vampire). While still maintaining her tough edginess, Billi gradually becomes a more sympathetic character in this installment. The action is fast paced and scary, while still allowing time for character development. The plot is steeped in lore from multiple cultures and religions. Given this, it is puzzling that no one remarks on the fact that all of the Templars just happen to have Arthurian names. Sadly, one can not help but notice that the cover is heavily white washed. It portrays Billi, who is described as favoring her Pakistani mother, as Caucasian. Boys will enjoy the story as well, but will likely not be interested in carrying around a book that looks like a paranormal romance. That said, Billi will appeal to those who appreciate tough and independent heroines, and the stories have broad appeal to anyone who enjoys horror stories.-Kristin Anderson, Columbus Metropolitan Library System, OH (c) Copyright 2010.
