  從油燈中逃出的印度魔神,開始凍結時間、凍結一切。
  只剩九天,那位穿著蜘蛛人睡衣的女孩,
  能否阻止蟄伏魔王毀滅世界?
 
  十二歲的亞露.夏哈住在母親工作的印度藝術文化博物館。為了融入學校生活,她常向同學吹噓誇大很多事。某天,亞露的同學突然來訪想揭穿她的謊言,並要求她點燃傳說中被詛咒的油燈。沒想到真的釋放出蟄伏魔王,將她母親和同學瞬間凍結,並且打算喚醒「毀滅大帝」,讓世界結束。

  在時間走到盡頭前,唯一的希望是神話中的般度戰士轉世,而這些戰士們,究竟是誰?

國際名家好評

  真可惜,這不是一本我寫得出來的書,我就是缺少了內行人的知識和技能,無法處理印度神話當中氣勢磅礡、無與倫比的神奇世界,更別說是還要讓故事風趣,讓讀者覺得容易親近。還好,我們很幸運,洛希妮•查克西就具備有這樣的能力。──【波西傑克森】系列作者  雷克.萊爾頓(Rick Riordan)
 
  一顆新星誕生了。《般度戰士:時間的盡頭》令人感到傑出且驚奇。極富原創性又引人入勝,故事中閃耀著機智與魅力,充滿了不可多得的幻想樂趣。──【阿提米斯】系列作者  歐因.科弗(Eoin Colfer)
 
  警告!這本書包含了令人印象深刻的神話、可怕的惡魔,以及那些對你來說更猛的冒險。喔,還有那個走到大象嘴裡的最粗魯女英雄。這我很愛,我想你也是。──【巨靈三部曲】系列作者  喬納森.史特勞(Jonathan Stroud)

Best-selling author Rick Riordan introduces this adventure by Roshani Chokshi about twelve-year-old Aru Shah, who has a tendency to stretch the truth in order to fit in at school. While her classmates are jetting off to family vacations in exotic locales, she'll be spending her autumn break at home, in the Museum of Ancient Indian Art and Culture, waiting for her mom to return from her latest archeological trip. Is it any wonder that Aru makes up stories about being royalty, traveling to Paris, and having a chauffeur? One day, three schoolmates show up at Aru's doorstep to catch her in a lie. They don't believe her claim that the museum's Lamp of Bharata is cursed, and they dare Aru to prove it. Just a quick light, Aru thinks. Then she can get herself out of this mess and never ever fib again. But lighting the lamp has dire consequences. She unwittingly frees the Sleeper, an ancient demon whose duty it is to awaken the God of Destruction. Her classmates and beloved mother are frozen in time, and it's up to Aru to save them. The only way to stop the demon is to find the reincarnations of the five legendary Pandava brothers, protagonists of the Hindu epic poem, the Mahabharata, and journey through the Kingdom of Death. But how is one girl in Spider-Man pajamas supposed to do all that?

Roshani Chokshi (www.roshanichokshi.com) is the author of the instant New York Times bestselling novel, The Star-Touched Queen, and its companion, A Crown of Wishes. She studied fairy tales in college, and she has a pet luck dragon that looks suspiciously like a Great Pyrenees dog. Aru Shah and the End of Time, her middle grade debut, was inspired by the stories her grandmother told her as well as Roshani’s all-consuming love for Sailor Moon. She lives in the south and says "y’all," but she doesn’t really have a Southern accent. Her Twitter handle is @roshani_chokshi.
