    I love that Rick Riordan is inviting other authors to add to his mythological world. For all of you looking for more mythology of India, you'll want to pick this one up. So many gods and goddesses and demons and monsters. I love that Hanuman can grow super tall. So curious to see what'...

    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...

    Actual rating: 3.5 If you have ever read a Rick Riordan book, you know what to expect from that universe and Chokshi delivers that but her characters instead of being Greek Gods are reincarnated Hindu demi gods. Without giving the plot line away, let me say this is the most fun rewr...

    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 ...

    Me result muy interesante leer una historia basada en la mitologa hind, y ms tratndose de una aventura middle grade, que ya sabis que me pirran. Tiene todos los ingredientes de las novelas de Riordan: padres celestiales, antiguos enemigos mitolgicos, situaciones dispar...

    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...

    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...

    Okay for a middle grade/children?s book I absolutely fell in love with this. Aru is a very imaginative girl who lives in an Indian museum. One day after making a bet Aru accidentally unleashes a demon god that has the capability to destroy the world. This book is how she stops him....

    The first book in a planned quartet by Roshani Chokshi. I thought this was wonderful and could see this being a life long favorite with children just like His Dark Materials and Harry Potter. Aru Shah is a heroine for the ages and I was so reluctant to put this book down. Not going to ...

    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...

    Disclaimer: I received an ARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This is no way impacts my review. Aru Shah and the End of the Time is a middle-grade fantasy novel based off of Hindu mythology, following a 12-year old girl, Aru Shah, who finds out she is a reincarn...
