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.

For more information on Kumari do visit her website: www.kumariskingdom.com where you’ll find lots of goddess facts and tips.

Kumari the girl goddess is back home after her year in New York, but everything has changed. It's hard to fit back into her old life at the Palace after everything she's learned in the World Beyond.

Kumari will need to marshall her goddess powers and use all her courage and ingenuity to find the secrets which will cure Papa and save the kingdom. And her quest to avenge her beloved Mamma seems destined to continue!
