The Lovereading4Kids comment

A fast-paced adventure of magic, mystery and enterprise. Girl goddess Kumari has only twenty-four hours to save Papa and her people in the Hidden Kingdom against the mysterious enemy who threatens them all. And Kumari is still learning how to make best use of her powers. Can she do it? Kumari is a gutsy heroine riding an entertaining roller coaster of life.

The Lovereading comment:

In this terrific blend of fantasy, drama, wit and adventure, Kumari the girl goddess, who we first met in the author’s striking debut Kumari Goddess of Gotham is once again forced to pit her wits against everyone in order to save her people against the enemy. With an original voice the author succeeds in engaging the reader, both through some page-turning suspense but also via a lightness of touch in the writing.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
