Editorial Reviews

Praise for The Serpent's Secret:"Never a dull moment for our ordinary-girl-turned-demon-fighting-princess Kiranmala in this hilarious, action-packed romp. Also, there is snot. It's, like, everywhere. This combination of crucial elements is everything I love in a book. A brilliant beginning to a fresh (and potentially sticky) new series!" -- Lisa McMann, New York Times bestselling author of The Unwanteds"This funny, unique book feels like the spirit of A Wrinkle in Time married the awesomeness of Bengali folktales and had the coolest, fiercest Indian princess - so much fun!Can Kiranmala save the rest of us next?" -- Tui Sutherland, New York Times bestselling author of Wings of Fire"I was hooked from the first page, and the action-packed story never let me go. I adored Kiranmala's sass, courage, and confidence. She is a hero all readers will love." -- Jennifer Nielsen, New York Times bestselling author of The False Prince*".the overall story will appeal to fans of Rick Riordan . The strong female protagonist and the integration of generally under-explored Indian mythology make this a compelling choice for most libraries." - School Library Journal, starred review*".an exciting, fantastical debut grounded by Kiran's wry, clever voice. A breathtaking adventure." -Booklist, starred review
