It is India, many centuries ago. Travelling with his father's circus, ten-yearold Sharat performs amazing feats with his white tiger Emira. When they have arrived at the City of Jewels, where the troupe must play for the young Emperor, Suleiman, his entourage and the frightening Doctor Rookh, Sharat's precious tiger mysteriously disappears. Determined to find her, Sharat's quest takes him into the city's sewers, through an enchanted garden, past crystal caverns and into a magical underworld where he and his friends finally discover the terrible secret of the Empire. Take a roller-coaster ride through medieval India and into a world of ghuls, jinnis and magic. This incredibly exciting adventure---the first book in The Queen of the Forest trilogy---will leave its readers craving for more.
