Aru Shah and her Pandava friends embark on a final quest to save the world and protect the nectar of immortality. In this fifth series title focusing on Hindu mythology, the Pandava girls have to work with Aiden and Rudy in order to pass various godly challenges as they somehow earn back their demi-god weapons and access the labyrinth, which houses the nectar. Built around complex Hindu mythology which includes many gods, places, and events that readers may be unfamiliar with, this story may be best for those who have read the earlier series titles and are familiar with the mythology.
