This is the 1st book from Rick Riordan's new Disney imprint, Rick Riordan Presents and a book that I have been looking forward to reading ever since I heard it was coming out. I love Rick Riordan and all of his different mythology books and was super excited that he got Roshani Chokshi to write... Read More »

A fun read, much like Rick Riordan's series. This series features a girl and focuses on Hindi deities. The introduction of an Indian myth about re-incarnated brothers coming back as pre-teen girls promises more adventures in the series.

Aru Shah, who lives in the Museum of Ancient Indian Art or Culture with her archaeologist mom, doesn’t MEAN to light the lamp that will release the Sleeper who will wake the God of Destruction and end the world in seven days, but she has to prove to her classmates that’s she’s NOT lying about it being cursed! With everyone around her frozen, Aru must save the world with the help of a talking pigeon and Mini, the girl she just met who also happens to be her soul sister (in a “both are daughters of Hindu gods” way). They’ll have to travel to the Kingdom of Death and overcome innumerable obstacles and just might discover their own strengths and talents along the way.

I was lucky enough to have access to an advance reader's copy and the book did not disappoint! This is the first book in the series and it focuses on Aru Shah, a 12-year old girl who is living above a museum with her archaeologist mother. Aru lies a lot to fit in with her classmates but when one of her lies lead to the release of a demon, Aru finds out she's more special than she thought. The book is fast-paced, full of humor, and focuses on Hindu mythology which will satisfy mythology lovers and Rick Riordin fans. This is a great start to an awesome series!

Aru Shah has a loose relationship with the truth. Why tell her classmates that she is going to spend her vacation waiting for her mom at the boring old Museum of Ancient Indian Art and Culture when she could spin them a tale of zipping around Paris is a chauffeured limo (because she is a member of royalty after all)? But her lies catch up to her and she is forced to prove one of her more outlandish stories by lighting the cursed Lamp of Bharata in her mother's museum. But what harm could come from lighting a lamp? Turns out, a lot. This time, Aru's exaggeration was not nearly outlandish enough because she has unleashed the Sleeper, a malevolent demon bent on awakening the God of Destruction who will cause the end of the world. Roshani Chokshi's Aru Shah and the End of Time is perfect for fans of the Percy Jackson series.

This is the 1st book from Rick Riordan's new Disney imprint, Rick Riordan Presents and a book that I have been looking forward to reading ever since I heard it was coming out. I love Rick Riordan and all of his different mythology books and was super excited that he got Roshani Chokshi to write a series about Hindu mythology. Aru Shah & the End of Time is the 1st book in the Pandava Quartet and is action-packed from the beginning. I love that the two main characters are both girls and the fact that I knew absolutely nothing about Hindu mythology before reading this book.
