Great story! It was so interesting I read it in one day. I couldn’t stop reading. It reminded me of Avatar only it took place in India. I recommend the story from ages 10 and up. Even grown ups would like this story. It is fantasy/adventure with a lot of action. I can’t wait for the sequel. Review written by 11 year old girl.

Maya’s early life is shrouded in mystery. She lives with her guardian, Mr. Norbert, who instructs her never to show her four-foot long prehensile tail. Even more interestingly, Norbert disappears for short periods of time into the attic, where she’s forbidden.
Until the day comes that Mr. Norbert is called away for a few hours...and Maya’s curiosity gets the better of her. Her shocking discovery in the attic leads to her questioning who – and what – she really is. And no sooner does she start trying to figure this than she’s placed on a ship to India in order to...
...well, you’ll just have to read the book, won’t you?
Intriguing and fun, with action and mystery that’s perfect for kids or young adults.
