    "Whatever their version of the Otherwold happens to be. But let's not get into the question of metaphysics. Many things can coexist. Several gods can live in one universe. It's like fingers on a hand. They're all different, but still part of a hand." This was beautiful, and so much ...

    I?m really happy this imprint exists, and I?m really happy that ARU SHAH AND THE END OF TIME was its debut release! It was such a treat to read a story that has a similar vibe to Rick Riordan?s own work, but that also tackles a new mythology (Hindu) and also bears the unique voic...

    If this first book is any indication, we have a lot to celebrate with this new series. I am so excited for this Rick Riordan imprint and new mythology stories from other cultures. ...

    Aru wanted her life to be as exciting as the children who went to her school, so she made up stories that weren?t true. She never realized that living in a museum with her archeologist mother could be a rich adventure all on its own. When Aru is challenged by three of her fellow ...

    I'm going to go with 3 STARS for this book. It's more me than the book though. I just think I'm a bit old to be reading these kinds of books (ex. Rick Riordan). I enjoyed the book as a whole, but I can honestly say that I can't for the life of me remember any of the gods or goddesses...

    4.5 stars Hindu mythology meets Rick Riordan style humor and situations. I'm a big fan of adult novels written about the Mahabharata, palace of illusions, and the Pandava's, so to read a middle grade take on Indian epics was a lot of fun! This did make me realize a gap in my epic Hi...

    This book is trying too hard. I never managed to truly and effectively get a full sense of Aru Shah?s personality, because the voice of the author is far more present and loud. And still, somehow, I managed to dislike Aru. She made me cringe so many times that at some point I ...

    I was very judgmental throughout the reading. I thought that this is just the Indian version of Percy Jackson. There was lack of humor. But at the end of the day I really enjoy this piece. especially the glossary. my my! And that's when I found that the humor is just balanced through i...

    This book! This book is so inspiring and beautiful! Every page was like reading a dream. I wish I could have had this book when I was in middle school, and it brings me to tears of happiness when I think of young girls getting to read it now. I absolutely loved this book! ...

    Have you ever read a book and thought, "Wow, I wish I'd written that!"? For me, Aru Shah and the End of Time is one of those books. It has everything I like: humor, action, great characters and, of course, awesome mythology! But this is not a book I could have written. I just don't...

    *4.5 This was everything I wanted from it, this book gave me such a nostalgic feeling for Rick Riordan?s books, there were similarities but was completely unique and it?s own story. This book was beautiful, inspirational, and action-packed, this book is female empowering with the ...

    Aru Shah has a very active imagination, and often it gets her into trouble - especially the time it led her to release the Sleeper demon from the Lamp of Bharata, which could, very possibly, cause the end of all time. Chokshi writes an adventurous tale of learning yourself and findi...

    This book was so fun! What a great start to a new series, and I love Aru and Mini so much. I can definitely see the Percy Jackson vibes, but Roshani made this book all her own. Can?t wait for book 2. ...

    Oh, I loved this. Middle grade books are usually hit or miss with me, but this one was such a fun adventure. Aru lives with her mother above the Museum of Ancient Indian Art and Culture. One day when she lights the Lamp of Bharata, the Sleeper is freed and everyone around her is fro...

    "Suddenly, the world she thought she knew had opened up, as if stage curtains had been yanked back to show her that there was so much more than what she'd imagined. There was magic. Secrets crouched in the dark. Characters from stories, like the ones she'd been told all her life, were ...

    This is my latest favorite of this year! It's so difficult to get a book with Indian characters, let alone a fantasy one. Along with Hindu mythology, it's unheard of. Thank the Gods and Goddesses, for Roshani Chokshi, is here. I absolutely loved this book! I adored the character...

    Actual Rating: 4.25 stars *** Full review now posted *** ?Tales are slippery, her mother had often said. The truth of a story depends on who is telling it.? Aru Shah and the End of Time is the kind of book that I would have killed for when I was younger. I mean it has the...

    Trust Rick Riordan when he recommends a new series!! Hindu mythology? Middle-grade heroines?! A quest to save the universe from a demon and the End of Time?!! Sign me up!! I loved this first book of the Pandava Quartet! It was so much fun and full of adventure. Honestly, I was a...

    Eh. I didn?t love it, It was okay. I think it was just aimed too young and it really felt young. So this is along the lines of Percy Jackson, Magnus Chase, of the Kane Chronicles, but for me it fell a bit flat. It is based on the Hindu mythologies and follows a young girl Aru who ...
