The Savage Fortress by Sarwat Chadda

Weaves together contemporary and mythological India, about British-born Ash, whose father is offered a dream job in India, and discovers something is very wrong with mysterious millionaire Lord Savage, finding himself in a desperate battle to stop Savage’s master plan--the opening of the Iron Gates that have kept Ravana, the demon king, at bay for four millennia.

The Savage Fortress is an exciting and suspenseful book and I couldn't put it down.  The story is set in India where Ash Mistry finds himself running from monstrous shapechangers called rakshasas; if Ash doesn't stop these evil forces, the world will end.    The story is full of non-stop action with lots of treacherous and dangerous situations along with some demons and gore, all of which make for a real page turner.  There are a couple spots that were not so exciting to read but I was always rewarded with an exciting part right around the corner.  I HIGHLY recommend this book for boys and girls ages 10-13.

This book is out in stores now!

Happy reading!
