Heroes aren''t made. They''re reborn.

After three weeks of vacation, Ash Mistry is ready to leave the heat and dust of India behind him. Then he discovers a gleaming gold arrowhead hidden in the sands - a weapon used to defeat evil King Ravana in legend.

At least, Ash is pretty sure it''s only a legend . . .

But when Lord Alexander Savage comes after Ash, the legends are suddenly way too real. Savage commands an army of monstrous shapechangers called rakshasas, who want only to seize the arrowhead and restore Ravana to power. As they hunt Ash through magnificent fortresses and brutal deserts, he must learn to work with a powerful rakshasa girl named Parvati, and find the strength within himself to fight on no matter what. Because this isn''t just a battle to stop the end of the world. It''s a battle to stop the end of reality as we know it.

No pressure.

Praise for The Savage Fortress

*"Plot-driven, fast paced, exciting, and sometimes terrifying, The Savage Fortress is the ideal next step for readers who loved Rick Riordan''s books about the Olympian heroes . . . Make time for this novel, because it is very hard to put down." -School Library Journal, starred review

"A classic hero''s quest . . . fans of Riordan''s Kane Chronicles, Indiana Jones, and the like will appreciate this non-Western take on fantasy adventure." -Bulletin of the Center for Children''s Books

"Nonstop action and likable teen characters will attract fans of fantasy quests such as the Percy Jackson books and the saga of Nicholas Flamel." -Kirkus
