What people Have Said About Sarwat Chadda’s Books


“This is a lush read with high appeal, full of apocalyptic drama, fight scenes, and stomach-turning descriptions of Neural and his band of demons, balanced with Sik’s dry humor and a cast of quirky, vivid characters.”―School Library Journal

“An epic adventure worthy of Gilgamesh. Chadda brings attention to the less well-recognized mythology of ancient Mesopotamia with engaging humor and wit.”―Kirkus Reviews


*”Short chapters filled with action, appealing characters, and cliff-hanger endings make this fantasy the kind of book readers will find hard to put down.”―School Library Journal (starred review)

*”Shadow Magic is a fast-paced read full of mystery, magic, misdirection, giant bats, and zombies. The characters are compelling, and the world is imaginative and well-crafted. Middle grade fantasy readers will find this book riveting and look for a sequel.”―School Library Connection (starred review)


“Plot-driven, fast paced, exciting, and sometimes terrifying, The Savage Fortress is the ideal next step for readers who loved Rick Riordan’s books about the Olympian heroes and Anthony Horowitz’s “Gatekeepers” series…Make time for this novel, because it is very hard to put down.” — School Library Journal, starred review

“A knock-down, drag-out adventure… A rousing and breathtaking climax supports the tied-up threads of the ending. Nonstop action and likable teen characters will attract fans of fantasy quests such as the Percy Jackson books and the saga of Nicholas Flamel.” — Kirkus Reviews

“A classic hero’s quest, this action-packed story has its protagonist making the transformation from portly, brainy everyday kid to courageous, physically strong warrior with relative ease…. The incorporation of the Ramayana legend serves as a basic introduction to Indian deities; fans of Riordan’s Kane Chronicles, Indiana Jones, and the like will appreciate this non-Western take on fantasy adventure.” — Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
