Praise for The Serpent's Secret
* "This is a series starter that rivals Rick Riordan's The Lightning Thief. A breathtaking adventure." -- Booklist, starred review
* "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
"This funny, unique book feels like the spirit of A Wrinkle in Time married the awesomeness of Bengali folktales and had the coolest, fiercest Indian princess - so much fun!Can Kiranmala save the rest of us next?" -- Tui Sutherland, New York Times bestselling author of Wings of Fire
"I was hooked from the first page, and the action-packed story never let me go. I adored Kiranmala's sass, courage, and confidence. She is a hero all readers will love." -- Jennifer Nielsen, New York Times bestselling author of The False Prince

I also loved Kiranmala as a character, and how she grew from the beginning to the end. And her relationship with Neel!
The book was also just... really funny? And the comedy just worked wonderfully within the book. There were also some great illustrations!
Anyway, definitely pick up this book! I highly recommend it! (Also that cover - WOW!)
