She joins the other children of the erst while royal family in the Hunt for the Horseman, a game like none other because it involves looking for an ivory toy- the Horseman- in secret compartments and hidey-holes.

Dangerous criminals are out to grab the palace. This could be the last chance the children may have to find the elusive horseman. Meantime, as the court hearing nears, the thugs start dangerous games.

When it looks like everything is lost, the Horseman saves the palace……

Read for a rollercoaster ride of fun, thrill, adventure, mystery, and more.

Review of a witch

Twelve year old Sandhya (Sandy), has travelled from her home in the United States to India for a family reunion, at the family’s palace Amrita Mahal.

The Palace is under threat from the local mafia, as the family can’t find a document that shows they are the rightful owners. The document must be located in order for them to keep their home.

Whilst staying at the palace, Sandy and the other children go looking for an old missing toy, the huntsman, that was hidden by Prince Surya Bhanu some 120 years ago. The hunt for the huntsman has been a family tradition for many years, but with the house full of lots of secret compartments and nooks and crannies, the hunt isn’t easy, hence no-one has ever found the toy before.

Will Sandy find the toy, and will the document be found, and save the family from being evicted from their ancestral home?

The Hunt for the Horseman, is a beautiful story, bringing to the forefront Indian cultures. The book shows just how close Indian families are, and how they are always there for one another. The story does include some terms that I hadn’t heard before, but Ms. Reddy, gives you explanations of those she feels that you would not know.

The book is an adventure/mystery story, and is full of twists and turns along the way. It is an intriguing, beautifully illustrated, engaging book that older children will enjoy, as well as learning about Indian cultures.
