Roshani Chokshi is the author of the instant New York Times best-seller Aru Shah and the End of Time, the first book in a quartet for middle grade readers about the adventures of five Pandava sisters. Her acclaimed novels for young adults include The Star-Touched Queen and its companion, A Crown of Wishes, and The Gilded Wolves. The Pandava series was inspired by the stories her grandmother told her, as well as Roshani's all-consuming love for Sailor Moon. Rosh lives in Georgia and says "y'all," but she doesn't really have a Southern accent, alas.

*"Chokshi seamlessly weaves Indian cosmology and pop culture into a refreshingly feminist plot laced with witty dialogue. The most compelling feature of the novel, however, is the complexity of its characters, who, despite their divinity or semidivinity, are at their core very human. This will leave fans enthralled and clamoring for more."—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
