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 mstry of the evil Ravana. He’s been lost in Mongolia, abandoned at a volcano in Nicaragua and hidden up a tree from a rhino in Nepal.

Invoked my newish rule: Saage bit gory near the end, but not awful. It was so much more than I was expecting and so much fun too. Ash, after a moment, hurried up and fell into step beside her.

Ash Mistry and The Savage Fortress

At secondary school we barely read any novels with girls in until Pride and Prejudice at O level. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. The plot races along, there are excellent villains, from Fortres Savage a literally crumbing English aristocrat with his fantastic henchmen who morph in and out of demon form, to the climax where Ash has to fight the biggest baddie of all, the one and only Ravana.

Which is a problem since his uncle has fortrrss him and his annoying younger sister Lucky there to take up a dream job with the mysterious Lord Savage.

This book is for Percy Jackson fans who are into gods and are if you think You know them all well you have to know the gods fortfess the mythical version of India and an action adventure like no other.

I finished this book a little while ago and simply forgot to mark it, but on the whole?

Unlike Riordan’s stories that balance action and danger with humor, this book really doesn’t have a sense of humor very often. He shows a lot of textures in the different peoples in this book, and I think it’s good for readers to be exposed to multicultural characters and the diversity of our big, wide world.

Didn’t give it a proper chance. The fact remains, that for many children, these books will be their only exposure to Hinduism. This is absolutely one of fortgess best books, particularly for the genre, that I have ever read. There is, undoubtedly, a great deal of violence in this book. Another aspect worthy of mention is how the story takes the Ramayana as point of departure and expands on it.

Sarwat Chadda does a fantastic job bringing Hindu folklore into the modern world, especially the most famous tale, and my personal favorite: Most of it To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up. Super fun adventure story where myth meets modern, Indian style!


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 xnd.

Heat, colour, smell and noise assail your senses as you join Ash and Lucky in Varanasi. Chadda has written an involving read quite full of darkness and danger, and incredible heroism at its center.

As I have not yet taught in KS2 I would seek advice on how to best use this book but I can imagine getting wonderful results from it including literacy, RE, geography, art, PE to name but a few. Ash Mistry is leading a pretty complicated life.

This is a cracking story well told, and best of all, more Ash Mistry adventures are promised for the future. But Chadda doesn’t turn this in to a history lesson: I found the link with Indian mythology as opposed to pure fantasy really enticing and interesting and it made me want to read more.

Thirteen-year-old Ash Mistry and his younger sister Lucky are on a trip to India with their uncle and aunt. At the end of his harrowing experience, he is not unchanged.
