Summary
MEET KIRANMALA:

INTERDIMENSIONAL DEMON SLAYER



(Only she doesn't know it yet.)



On the morning of her twelfth birthday, Kiranmala is just a regular sixth grader living in Parsippany, New Jersey . . . until her parents mysteriously vanish and a drooling rakkhosh demon slams through her kitchen, determined to eat her alive. Turns out there might be some truth to her parents' fantastical stories-like how Kiranmala is a real Indian princess and how she comes from a secret place not of this world.



To complicate matters, two crush-worthy princes ring her doorbell, insisting they've come to rescue her. Suddenly, Kiran is swept into another dimension full of magic, winged horses, moving maps, and annoying, talking birds. There she must solve riddles and battle demons all while avoiding the Serpent King of the underworld and the Rakkhoshi Queen in order to find her parents and basically save New Jersey, her entire world, and everything beyond it . . .
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "*Starred Review* Kiranmala's parents have always been a little weird, with their princess obsession, Indian folktales, and strange rituals. For the most part, Kiran has a normal life in her New Jersey town, until her twelfth birthday, when her parents are kidnapped by a rakkhosh demon (surprise, they're real!), and two young warrior princes appear on her doorstep. Practical Kiran is less than thrilled to discover that not only are her parents not her birth parents, she's actually an Indian princess from another dimension and all the fanciful stories her parents tell are true. She's barely had time to process all this before she's whisked away on a flying horse by the prince brothers, one handsome and honorable, the other totally obnoxious. To rescue her parents, Kiran will have to embrace her true heritage and learn a thing or two about demon slaying along the way. Inspired by Bengali folktales, this is an exciting, fantastical debut grounded by Kiran's wry, clever voice and her experiences as a child of immigrants. With a vibrant supporting cast, a world steeped in Bengali folk stories, and an action-packed story line, this is a series starter that rivals Rick Riordan's The Lightning Thief (2005). A breathtaking adventure.--Reagan, Maggie Copyright 2017 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Mythology, science, and interdimensional travel merge in this imaginative story about one girl's search for self and the discovery of pride in one's culture. Kiran has grown up being told that she is an Indian princess and has been raised on stories about creatures of Indian legend and lore-all of which she thinks is her eccentric parents' way of instilling their culture in her. In reality, they are trying to prepare her: on Kiran's 12th birthday, a spell protecting her expires, her parents disappear, and Kiran is attacked by a demonic rakkhosh. After meeting a pair of prince brothers, Kiran travels to the realm of her birth, the Kingdom Beyond Seven Oceans and Thirteen Rivers, in an effort to rescue her parents. Her journey takes her through a shifting mythological landscape that she confronts with daring, humor, and a no-nonsense attitude while learning more about her true history. The over-the-top action and ample banter will leave readers looking forward to more of Kiran's adventures. Art not seen by PW. Ages 8-12. Author's agent: Brent Taylor, Triada US.
