Aru Shah and her sisters–including one who also claims to be the Sleeper’s daughter–must find their mentors Hanuman and Urvashi in Lanka, the city of gold, before war breaks out between the devas and asuras.
Aru has just made a wish on the tree of wishes, but she can’t remember what it was. She’s pretty sure she didn’t wish for a new sister, one who looks strangely familiar and claims to be the Sleeper’s daughter, like her.
Aru also isn’t sure she still wants to fight on behalf of the devas in the war against the Sleeper and his demon army. The gods have been too devious up to now. Case in point: Kubera, ruler of the city of gold, promises to give the Pandavas two powerful weapons, but only if they win his trials. If they lose, they won’t stand a chance against the Sleeper’s troops, which will soon march on Lanka to take over the Otherworld.
Aru’s biggest question, though, is why every adult she has loved and trusted so far has failed her. Will she come to peace with what they’ve done before she has to wage the battle of her life?

I absolutely adored this book! One good thing about quarantine life is the fact that I started my Bookstagram account and a friend I met through the Bookstagram community introduced me to The Gilded Wolves which is the first Roshani book that I read. This book is a part of a series and I highly recommend reading all of it! Even though it’s a MG book, I still enjoyed it. If you’re a fan of the Percy Jackson series, give this one a chance! I honestly don’t have any cons to mention. This has hindu mythology and the story was incredible.
