Ash Mistry and the Savage Fortress

Sarwat Chadda

Breathtaking action adventure for 8 to 12-year-olds. Ash Mistry, reluctant hero, faces ancient demons…and comes into an astonishing, magical inheritance. Varanasi: holy city of the Ganges. In this land of ancient temples, incense and snake charmers…Where the monsters and heroes of the past come to life…One slightly geeky boy from our time…IS GOING TO KICK SOME DEMON ASS. Ash Mistry hates India. Which is a problem since his uncle has brought him and his annoying younger sister Lucky there to take up a dream job with the mysterious Lord Savage. But Ash immediately suspects something is very wrong with the eccentric millionaire. Soon, Ash finds himself in a desperate battle to stop Savage’s masterplan - the opening of the Iron Gates that have kept Ravana, the demon king, at bay for four millennia…

Review

It was Ash’s idea to visit India, so now that he hates it there’s nobody to blame but himself. Sure, he loves the ancient temples and mythical monsters, but it also means getting dragged along to stuffy parties with his uncle, a university researcher, and his annoying younger sister Lucky.

When Ash arrives at the mysterious Lord Savage’s mansion, he overhears something he shouldn’t: could it be possible that behind Savage’s strange behaviour and even stranger appearance lies a demon straight out of Indian legend?

Percy Jackson fans – are you paying attention? Ash Mistry and the Savage Fortress is definitely for you! This is Sarwat Chadda’s first foray into middle grade fiction, and he’s ticked all the right boxes: great characters, lots of action and an intriguing plot, but it’s the Indian mythology that will really hook readers aged nine and up.
