Ash Mistry and the Savage Fortress
I heard Chadda talk in a recent presentation and he gave us trainee teachers some good advice on how to get children reading Maybe he just has that sort of face. Here the setting and premise were cool, but the voice was the kind of MG that just doesn’t work for me these days.
Ash has a very distinctive way of speaking and he comes to life for me. Still, a well balanced book which deserves more attention. Putting aside minor flaws, it was alright. It doesn’t exorcise or romanticize, and I imagine it’s a blessing to Indian readers to see themselves in Ash and Lucky. The world building was great throughout. Other than that, I can criticize little. He discovers thee inner class of the town Varanasi, about the magical sages and the constant war between the Gods and the Demons happening throughout the world and trains in the field of battle to seek vengeance against Savage for the murder of his Uncle.
Fast-paced and fairly enjoyable, Nice to see asj fantasy series based on Indian myths and gods, specifically the Ramayana. But then his uncle is hired by Lord Savage, a rich mysterious man, to decipher ancient scrolls.
Which is a problem since his uncle has brought him and his annoying younger sister Lucky there to take up a dream job with the mysterious Lord Savage. Something about the writing really turned me off right away.
Just a warning to parents. Pain and gore abound, and there are detailed descriptions of corpses and entrails which will delight many young readers.
I aah this fascinating. She looked at him out of the corner of her eye. Ash Mistry hates India. Soon, Ash finds himself in a desperate battle to stop Savage’s masterplan – the opening of the Iron Gates that have kept Ravana, the demon king, at bay for four millennia It takes only a short while in India for Ash to understand that things are not what they seem.
A bit gory near the end, but not awful. Ash is a reluctant hero as there is a bit of repetitiveness in his internal monologue emphasising this reluctance.
It’s safe, indoors and avoids any form of physical danger. Super fun adventure story where myth meets modern, Indian style! He shows a lot of textures in the different peoples in this book, and I think it’s good for readers to be exposed to multicultural characters and the diversity of our big, wide world.
My one complaint is the hyper irritating transformation of the main character from chubby to skinny, and the way that’s fortrrss as him losing his weakness and growing into a fierce hero. They seem to stare at Ash and Lucky with eyes of reptiles, birds or furry jungle predators. He realizes that we are accountable for our actions and we do have responsibilities in our lives to do what’s right even if it’s hard.

I imagine these books will do very well, not only in the U. I hope that this is further explored in future instalments.
Ash Mistry hates India. This is absolutely one of the best books, particularly for the genre, that I have ever read.
