The Lovereading4Kids comment

A magnificent debut full of wit and humour from a one-time stand-up comedian. If you were to put a kingdom beyond the world, Manhatten, a goddess-in-training and a pet vulture you wouldn’t think there would be a story to be told. Well you’d be wrong. Amanda Lees has drawn these supposed disparate elements together into something that really has more than a little something. It’s wild, it’s wacky, it’s frightening and full of adventure. It’s an unmissable treat and the first in the Kumari trilogy. See also: Kumari: Goddess of Secrets and Kumari: Goddess of Destiny

Kumari, a Goddess in training, steals away to the Holy Mountain to summon her mother back from the dead. But the next thing Kumari knows, she's in Manhattan, surrounded by strange buildings and people, and running for her life through the Macy's Parade...
