Sayantani DasGupta - The Chaos Curse

Creating order out of chaos has frightening consequences in this New York Times bestselling series!

Kiranmala must leave the Kingdom Beyond and travel to her hometown of Parsippany to save Prince Lal, who has been spirited to the unlikeliest of places -- a tree in the yard of her best-enemy-for-life. She also faces evil serpents (of course!), plus a frightening prophecy about her role in the coming conflict between good and evil. Most troubling of all, though, is the way reality all around her seems to waver and flicker at odd moments. Could it be that the Anti-Chaos Committee's efforts are causing a dangerous disruption in the multiverse?

Kiran must grapple with the increasingly tangled threads that threaten to ensnare her...and everyone in the world and the Kingdom Beyond.

Praise for Game of Stars (Kiranmala and the Kingdom Beyond #2):

"A must-read for every aspiring Demon Slayer!" -- Soman Chainani, New York Times bestselling author of The School for Good and Evil

"DasGupta once again wittily meshes Bengali folktales, intergalactic science, and a spectacular world of her own creation in a yarn that is part hero's quest, part immigrant coming-of-age tale." -- Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"Action-packed." -- School Library Journal, starred review

" Game of Stars [is] a fun, funny adventure, more exciting than an auto rickshaw ride across dimensions. More Kiranmala, please!" -- Tracy Baptiste, New York Times bestselling author of The Jumbies

"I love this series." -- Adam Gidwitz, Newbery Honor-winning author of The Inquisitor's Tale and A Tale Dark and Grimm
