Be careful what you wish for!
Long, long ago or just a year ago – depending on when you read this – the Astu Devas wake up and grant the absurd wishes of two citizens of Orum, leaving the town isolated from the rest of civilization.
It is now up to Vikram, his reluctant fiancée Ponni, and his friends, Kalla, a thief, and Bana, an aspiring playwright, to steal a fabled blood jewel and save Orum. Oh, did we mention the jewel hangs around the neck of the demonic goddess, Rakta Katteri, guarded by her devotee, the terrifying Sorcerer of Mandala? Come, enter a portal to an enchanting new world!
A quirky fantasy novel suitable for ages 14 and up.

This is a hard review to write. I wanted to love it but it's too young for me. Things that were supposed to be funny and quirky just came off as silly and weird, like leaving the younger sibling tied to a post. It has its moments and it's place. I think a lot of boys will like this book. The world is interesting and different. The characters are a trio of special boys on an epic adventure saving their world. It's a classic fantasy hero's journey with a like nothing else world building and modern day humor. I couldn't agree more with Hema Penmaste's review, basically.
