About the Author

Sarwat Chadda, a first generation Muslim immigrant, has spent a lifetime integrating the best of his family's heritage with the country of his birth. There have been tensions as well as celebrations, but he wouldn’t wish it any other way. As a lifelong gamer he decided to embrace his passion for over-the-top adventure stories by swapping a career in engineering for a new one as a writer. That resulted in his first novel, Devil’s Kiss, back in 2009. Since then he has been published in a dozen languages, writing comic books, TV shows, and novels such as the award-winning Indian mythology-inspired Ash Mistry series and the epic high-fantasy Shadow Magic trilogy (as Joshua Khan). While he’s traveled far and wide, including Africa, the Middle East, and Asia, he’s most at home in London, where he lives with his wife, two more-or-less grown-up daughters, and an aloof cat. Feel free to drop him a line @sarwatchadda.

Praise For…

"An epic adventure worthy of Gilgamesh. Chadda brings attention to the less well-recognized mythology of ancient Mesopotamia with engaging humor and wit."—Kirkus Reviews

"This is a lush read with high appeal, full of apocalyptic drama, fight scenes, and stomach-turning descriptions of Neural and his band of demons, balanced with Sik's dry humor and a cast of quirky, vivid characters."—School Library Journal


*"Shadow Magic is a fast-paced read full of mystery, magic, misdirection, giant bats, and zombies. The characters are compelling, and the world is imaginative and well-crafted. Middle grade fantasy readers will find this book riveting and look for a sequel."—School Library Connection (starred review)


*"Short chapters filled with action, appealing characters, and cliff-hanger endings make this fantasy the kind of book readers will find hard to put down."—School Library Journal (starred review)
