This fast-paced and zany installment picks up four months after Book One. Princess Kiranmala must battle rakkhosh, ghosts, and witches in the Kingdom Beyond’s game show: Who Wants To Be A Demon Slayer? If she doesn’t, Kiran may never see her good friend Prince Neel again — never mind restore order to the kingdom. When you finish, be sure to read the author’s note; I love how Dasgupta draws on Indian culture and is inspired by Bengali folklore and tales from her childhood.
The sequel to the critically acclaimed debut-fantasy The Serpent's Secret!
Book Two finds Kiran back in New Jersey, but now her awareness of the Kingdom Beyond has given her a window into another dimension. A dimension in which friends are imperiled, society is fraying, and her return in imminent and unavoidable.
What will it take to be made into an action figure? Maybe this time...
