If you’re a fan of Rick Riordan’s Percy Jackson series, you will love this new book, because Rick Riordan actually helped to edit and publish it! Aru Shah and the End of Time by Roshani Chokshi is an exciting fantasy adventure take on Hindu mythology that kept enthralled from start to finish.
If you like mythology, you will obsess over this book and all of the detailed descriptions of the Hindu gods and legends! But even if you’re not mythology-obsessed, the characters will pull you in, too. Aru is an instantly lovable character, from the moment we meet her wearing Spider-man pajamas and all of the side-characters are wonderful too, especially her sassy talking-pigeon guardian named Boo.
