Aru has just made a wish on the tree of wishes, but she can't remember what it was. She's pretty sure she didn't wish for a new sister, one who looks strangely famili

Jul 12, 2020 marked it as willsacrifice-maryams-soul-for-this

Finally!!! Now I should probably calm down..
But there is RAAVAN on the cover!!
I am losing my calm...

Just in case you didn't know...Raavan is probably one of my favourite villain from the Indian mythology
Excited to see how he is reimagined in this one...

Umm...maybe I shouldn't be this excited for Raavan's books because of the fact that I was named after Sita
Raavan kidnapped Sita...and took her to Lanka(Raavan's homeland) against her will
Her husband Ram declared war against Raa

June 18, 2020: THE book I'm waiting for, like THE THE THE book I'm desperately waiting for. Especially after this cover that has just been revealed because I can't stop staring at all the details and this demon king is OH MY, I'm so excited to see how this journey would unfold for Aru and her friends!

I didn’t read this book because it still one month away... However, I have seven predictions for this book.
1. We’ll see the reincarnation of Karna, and she’ll be some type of anti-hero
2. We’ll visit Lanka, the City of Gold, why? Because the 4th book is called Aru Shah and the City of Gold
3. Therefore, we’ll meet Kubera, the ruler of the city!
4. We’ll see Hanuman and Uravashi again....
5. Maybe, the Pandavas need to steal a treasure or maybe Kubera is going to be attacked.... so they have to defen

No thoughts head empty only this

((also I only have one prediction and it's that Kara will be karna that's it u heard it here folks I know I'm right 😌💅🏾))
devanshi (your resident loud person)
if the reincarnation of karna comes in secretly allied with the sleeper then omg
what if she feeds the others lies about aru or how she didn't kill him in the first book or bla bla bla and everyone turns against her, like her vision
omg karma would basically turn the war omg
and lankaaaaaa eeeeeeeeeep

I can't tell you how excited I am for this. We get to see all the Pandava sisters again and meet Kara, who claims to be the Sleeper's daughter. I am hoping for some awesome, sweet and shippy Shahcharya (Aru x Aiden) moments. I want to see Aru and the main protagonists grow and mature even more. I want to see Aiden's and Aru's face when they realize that the Pandava Draupadi loved (romantically) more than the others was Arjuna. I am excited to see Ravana come to life (as shown in the cover). I'm ...more

Here i come!!!

tell me why the character development and action in this middle-grade series (and the PJO series) is better than most YA books, books that are MEANT for more action and development.

I didn't expect to enjoy this series so much. Can't wait for this book to come out!
Ravana is on the front cover and it seems like it will take place in Lanka, so I am sure this book is going to take some wild turns. With the way Chokshi wrote Surpanakha's story, it will be nice to see how she redeems Ravana as well.
A lot of people want to see Karna in this book, and guess what? I think Karna is already in the story... as Kara! It kind of makes sense, as a missing sister and that sort of thing,
