Quartet #3)
Author: Roshani Chokshi
Pub. Date: April 2, 2020
Publisher: Rick Riordan Presents
Formats: Hardcover, eBook, audiobook
Pages: 400
Best-selling
author Rick Riordan presents the third book in the Hindu-based, best-selling
Pandava series by Roshani Chokshi, in which Aru and her cohorts, Mini, Brynne,
and Aiden—and now a pair of twins—each search the Otherworld for Kalpavriksha,
the wish-granting tree.
War between the devas and the demons is imminent, and the
Otherworld is on high alert. When intelligence from the human world reveals
that the Sleeper is holding a powerful clairvoyant and her sister captive,
14-year-old Aru and her friends launch a search-and-rescue mission. The
captives, a pair of twins, turn out to be the newest Pandava sisters, though,
according to a prophecy, one sister is not true.
During the celebration of Holi, the heavenly attendants stage a
massage PR rebranding campaign to convince everyone that the Pandavas are to be
trusted. As much as Aru relishes the attention, she fears that she is destined
to bring destruction to her sisters, as the Sleeper has predicted. Aru believes
that the only way to prove her reputation is to find the Kalpavriksha, the
wish-granting tree that came out of the Ocean of Milk when it was churned. If
she can reach it before the Sleeper, perhaps she can turn everything around
with one wish.
Careful what you wish for, Aru . . .

Review
This was a wonderful and fun read! This book is full of adventure, magic and plenty of humor! There are also lots of twists and turns, which I love! I really love getting to read about Hindu mythology.   I really enjoyed this book and I can’t wait to read book four!
