Description

‘Has everything I like: humour, action, great characters
and awesome mythology!’ Rick Riordan, bestselling
author of Percy Jackson
‘A new star is born.’ Eoin Colfer, bestselling
author of Artemis Fowl
The fourth fast-paced fantasy adventure starring Aru
Shah!
Aru Shah and her sisters – including one who also claims to be
the Sleeper’s daughter – must find their mentors Hanuman and Urvashi
in Lanka, the city of gold, before war breaks out between the
devas and asuras.

Aru has just made a wish on the tree of wishes, but she can’t
remember what it was. She’s pretty sure she didn’t wish for a new
sister, one who looks strangely familiar and claims to be the Sleeper’s
daughter, like her.

Aru also isn’t sure she still wants to fight on behalf of the
devas in the war against the Sleeper and his demon army. The gods
have been too devious up to now. Case in point: Kubera, ruler of
the city of gold, promises to give the Pandavas two powerful weapons,
but only if they win his trials. If they lose, they won’t stand
a chance against the Sleeper’s troops, which will soon march
on Lanka to take over the Otherworld.

Aru’s biggest question, though, is why every adult she has loved
and trusted so far has failed her. Will she come to peace with
what they’ve done before she has to wage the battle of her life?
