‘A new star is born.’ Eoin Colfer, bestselling author
of Artemis Fowl

The first book in an exciting AND funny adventure series.

Twelve-year-old Aru Shah has a tendency to stretch the truth in
order to fit in at school.

Whilst her classmates are jetting off to exotic locales, she’ll
be at home, in the Museum of Ancient Indian Art and Culture where
her mother works.

Is it any wonder that Aru makes up stories about being royalty,
traveling to Paris, and having a chauffeur?

When Aru’s schoolmates dare her to prove that the museum’s Lamp
of Bharata is cursed, she doesn’t think there’s any harm in lighting
it. Little does Aru know that lighting the lamp has dire consequences.
She unwittingly frees the Sleeper, an ancient demon whose
duty it is to awaken the God of Destruction.

Her classmates and beloved mother are frozen in time, and, accompanied
by a wise-cracking pigeon and her long-lost half-sister,
it’s up to Aru to save them.

Pacy, page-turning storytelling

charming, funny writing

relatable characters to root for

a diverse, original feel to the set-up – drawing inspiration
from Hindu gods

Praise for Aru Shah and the End of Time:

“The characters and gods that make up Chokshi’s world
are hilarious … The empowerment that Chokshi places in her two
main characters of Aru and Mini, tells readers that girls are strong
and fierce and not to be underestimated.” Bill
Gowsell, Laughing Place

“Chokshi weaves an engrossing adventure that will leave readers
anticipating the next installment.” Publishers
