Sarwat Chadda has lived and travelled throughout the world, from China to Guatemala. He's been lost in Mongolia, abandoned at a volcano in Nicaragua and hidden up a tree from a rhino in Nepal. Not to mention being detained by Homeland Security in the US and chased around Tibet by the Chinese. Maybe he just has that sort of face.Anyway, now he's trying to settle in one place and avoid trouble. Hence his new career as a writer. It's safe, indoors and avoids any form of physical danger.Throughout his travels, Sarwat has soaked up the myths, legends and cultures of far away places. Now, with the Ash Mistry series, he aims to bring these unfamiliar tales of eastern demons, of blue-skinned heroes and of black-skinned goddesses back home and put them beside the exploits of Achilles and Thor. His heroes are Prince Rama and the demon-slaying Kali. Isn't it about time you met them too?

Ash doesn't have high hopes for his summer holiday in India - the heat, the smell, the crowds!? No thank you. But everything suddenly changes when his Aunt and Uncle are killed in a car crash and he is forced to go on the run with his sister, Lucky. Battling demons from ancient Indian mythology and one seriously evil sorcerer, Ash must toughen up, learn the ancient fighting art of Marma-adi and befriend a half-snake demon princess in order to survive. An incredibly exciting adventure, perfect for fans of Darren Shan and Rick Riordan. - Jen
