Ash Mistry  is rethinking his desire to spend time in India.  When he was  back in England, it seemed like a great idea.  Now after three weeks of heat and boredom, he would love a little excitement.  And he gets his wish.  But as they say, be careful what you wish for.  When the family goes to visit his uncle's colleague, Ash accidentally picks up a golden arrowhead and he finds himself fighting the demon himself.  He is unable to save his aunt and uncle but there may be time to save his sister from Ravana, the demon king.  There is a lot of Hindu mythology in this book but it is explained and you will find yourself really rooting for the overweight gamer from England overcome the demon king and save the world.
