Reviews

This is a series starter that rivals Rick Riordan's The Lightning Thief. A breathtaking adventure. -- Booklist, starred review

Will appeal to those who like their adventures fast and furious. -- School Library Journal, starred review

A refreshing take on the hero's quest...laugh-out-loud funny and extremely engaging. -- Kirkus Reviews

Never a dull moment for our ordinary-girl-turned-demon-fighting-princess Kiranmala in this hilarious, action-packed romp. Also, there is snot. It's, like, everywhere. This combination of crucial elements is everything I love in a book. A brilliant beginning to a fresh (and potentially sticky) new series! -- Lisa McMann, New York Times bestselling author of The Unwanteds

This funny, unique book feels like the spirit of A Wrinkle in Time married the awesomeness of Bengali folktales and had the coolest, fiercest Indian princess - so much fun!Can Kiranmala save the rest of us next? -- Tui Sutherland, New York Times bestselling author of Wings of Fire

I was hooked from the first page, and the action-packed story never let me go. I adored Kiranmala's sass, courage, and confidence. She is a hero all readers will love. -- Jennifer Nielsen, New York Times bestselling author of The False Prince
