Description
Saving the multiverse is no game in this New York Times bestseller!

When the Demon Queen shows up in her bedroom, smelling of acid and surrounded by evil-looking bees, twelve-year-old Kiranmala is uninterested. After all, it's been weeks since she last heard from her friends in the Kingdom Beyond, the alternate dimension where she was born as an Indian princess. But after a call to action over an interdimensional television station and a visit with some all-seeing birds, Kiran decides that she has to once again return to her homeland, where society is fraying, a terrible game show reigns supreme, and friends and foes alike are in danger. Everyone is running scared or imprisoned following the enactment of sudden and unfair rules of law.However, things are a lot less clear than the last time she was in the Kingdom Beyond. Kiran must once again solve riddles and battle her evil Serpent King father — all while figuring out who her true friends are, and what it really means to be a hero.

        Starred review from December 1, 2018

        Gr 4-7-In this sequel to The Serpent's Secret, Princess Kiranmala is back, ready to face her nemesis, the Serpent King Sesha, who also happens to be her father. Kiran's friend, Prince Neel, has been kidnapped by Sesha's minions and is being held prisoner deep in an underwater prison; something weird is going on with Prince Lal. Worst of all, Sesha has engineered a game show ("Who Wants to Be a Demon Slayer?") to entice Kiran into his trap. His ultimate aim: to capture the two magical stones that will allow him to vanquish Kiran and achieve immortality. Luckily, there's an array of characters inspired by Bengali folklore, literature, and pop culture to help Kiran complete her quest. Rakkhosh demons on skateboards make an appearance and new figures such as Bangoma and Bangomee (giant pigeons with the heads of humans) are also enlisted to fight the bad guys. Character development is somewhat limited by the sheer number of chase scenes, monster fights, and near misses, but readers who enjoyed the first book will continue to root for Kiran as she finds her true self and stands up for what's right. VERDICT This action-packed sequel is a must-buy where the first book is popular.-Elizabeth Friend, Wester Middle School, TX

        Starred review from October 15, 2018
        In this sequel to DasGupta's middle-grade debut, The Serpent's Secret (2018), readers learn that Parsippany, New Jersey, middle schooler Kiranmala has not returned to the Kingdom Beyond Seven Oceans and Thirteen Rivers for months.In fact, none of the Indian-American's friends from the Kingdom Beyond--especially princes Lalkamal and Neelkamal, their cousin Mati, and the bird Tuntuni--has contacted her since her departure. But after she is visited by the Rakkhoshi Queen under the cloak of night and prompted by an interdimensional television station to enter Who Wants to Be a Demon Slayer?, a multiverse reality game show, Kiranmala sets off to the Kingdom for another rollicking roller-coaster ride of an adventure, featuring a fork fight with a demon school dropout, an intergalactic auto-rikshaw ride, and a mind-boggling series of riddles with a ghost. In this outing DasGupta draws inspiration from American and South Asian pop culture in addition to Bengali folk and children's literature, and an extensive author's note provides readers with additional context for many of the cheeky references peppered throughout the book (the "Dead and Lovely" cream hawked in interdimensional TV ads is inspired by fairness creams that are ubiquitous on the Subcontinent, and "Samosa Drones" are a nod to Amazon's suggestion that they might use drones for book deliveries). Kiran's smart, funny voice will win new fans and gratify returning readers.DasGupta once again wittily meshes Bengali folktales, intergalactic science, and a spectacular world of her own creation in a yarn that is part hero's quest, part immigrant coming-of-age tale. (Fantasy. 10-14)

        December 15, 2018
        Grades 4-7 Kiranmala has accepted the fact that she's a demon-slaying princess from the alternate dimension Kingdom Beyond, only it's been four months since she's heard from anyone there. She's going about her normal, New Jersey life when her old sort-of friend, the Demon Queen, appears in her dreams, speaking in strange riddles. Kiran doesn't think too much of it until she hears about a demon-slaying competition between the Kingdom Beyond and the Kingdom of Serpents. Behind it? That would be Kiran's birth father, the crafty, deadly Serpent King. Something's afoot, and it's time for Kiran to rejoin her friends?some of whom are in some seriously hot water?to battle monsters, trick ghosts, and solve puzzles, all while checking her own prejudices about what demons really are. In this second thrilling, action-packed series installment (The Serpent's Secret, 2018), DasGupta widens the scope of her magical world while further exploring Bengali myths and cultural traditions. Bold, sometimes rash Kiran is a delightfully complex heroine, and this is a wonderfully layered continuation of an exciting adventure.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2018, American Library Association.)
