There are good guys too and a kind of training school too nothing cool like camp half blood. Only, when Ash first touches it, he saw a vision from the past — of the last battle against the evil demon king Ravana.

The unlikely associates that Ash amd as he embarks on this journey add a dash of spice to an already hot story. I remember being captivated by this story when I was very young, and rather a lot less so when I found out what happened to Sita some years later.

As anyone who works with, or writes for, young people knows, when it comes to YA fiction there’s always something that’s ‘in’. This is a cracking story well told, and best of all, more Ash Mistry adventures are promised for the future.

Ash witnesses the tradition of casting corpses into the river, and one crucial scene takes place at a ghat, where funeral pyres smoke. It tries occasionally to do so, but I found I’m back and forth about this one as a children’s book.
