Even fighting demons, he still managed to react, and for the most part behave, like a normal, slightly overweight, teenage boy! A near-fatal accident at a dig leads him to experience, apparently at first hand, the bloody and destructive war which, millennia ago, ended with the death and burial of the evil Ravana.

The book has humour which made me laugh and relate to.

Ash Mistry and the Savage Fortress by Sarwat Chadda – review | Children’s books | The Guardian

Due to the exponentially increasing weirdness, Ash tends to stay as far away from Savage as humanly possible. The horrific acts of the demons, the portrayal of Kali and the super scary rakshasas may give parents of the more sensitive child cause for concern. Unfortunately for Ash, the stakes are much higher than that and the fate of the entire world might be on the hands of this 13 year old boy.

The main character, Ash Mistry, is like Percy Jackson in many ways, although he isn’t a demigod.

It couldn’t have been any better. In this land of ancient temples, incense and snake charmers They seem to stare at Ash and Lucky with eyes of reptiles, birds or furry jungle predators. This is the first book of a trilogy and presumably his publishers are hoping for Percy Jackson levels of success, fandom and movie adaptation.

It doesn’t exorcise or romanticize, and I imagine it’s a blessing to Indian readers to see themselves in Ash and Lucky. If Ash and Percy met, they would probably be very good friends.

It’s a very good stab at taking on the Fogtress mythologies in an urban fantasy style adventure complete with a reluctant chosen one. This quick-paced tale features the ultimate bad guy. Simply put, where were the girls? Paperbackpages. I can’t wait to read more!

The first half of the book serves as agood savafe and as it is by the narrative of a teenage child, YA readers can surely relate to the experience. A parallel world in fact, where another version of him seems to be living his life, and the evil Lord Savage — now all-powerful and adored by the nation — is about to carry out a terrible plan.
