Description


Creating order out of chaos has frightening consequences in this New York Times bestselling series!

Kiranmala must leave the Kingdom Beyond and travel to her hometown of Parsippany to save Prince Lal, who has been spirited to the unlikeliest of places -- a tree in the yard of her best-enemy-for-life. She also faces evil serpents (of course!), plus a frightening prophecy about her role in the coming conflict between good and evil. Most troubling of all, though, is the way reality all around her seems to waver and flicker at odd moments. Could it be that the Anti-Chaos Committee's efforts are causing a dangerous disruption in the multiverse?



Kiran must grapple with the increasingly tangled threads that threaten to ensnare her...and everyone in the world and the Kingdom Beyond.

About the Author

Sayantani is a pediatrician by training, but now teaches at Columbia University. When she's not writing or reading, Sayantani spends time watching cooking shows with her trilingual children and protecting her black Labrador retriever Khushi from the many things that scare him, including plastic bags.

Praise For…


Praise for Game of Stars (Kiranmala and the Kingdom Beyond #2):


"A must-read for every aspiring Demon Slayer!" -- Soman Chainani, New York Times bestselling author of The School for Good and Evil

* "Action-packed." -- School Library Journal, starred review


"Game of Stars [is] a fun, funny adventure, more exciting than an auto rickshaw ride across dimensions. More Kiranmala, please!" -- Tracy Baptiste, New York Times bestselling author of The Jumbies


"I love this series." -- Adam Gidwitz, Newbery Honor-winning author of The Inquisitor's Tale and A Tale Dark and Grimm



Praise for The Serpent's Secret (Kiranmala and the Kingdom Beyond #1):


* "Will appeal to those who like their adventures fast and furious." -- School Library Journal, starred review

"A refreshing take on the hero's quest... laugh-out-loud funny and extremely engaging." -- Kirkus Reviews


"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

A well-balanced book that shows one young Chinese girl's experience immigrating with her family to California. At times funny, heart-wrenching, and innovative, this book shows the difficulties of starting over in a new country in a way that a young reader would be able to understand. A great book to open our eyes to the different and sometimes unseen ways people struggle and how we can make the world a better place by being more inclusive and willing to listen to other's stories. - Jessica
