Aru Shah and the Tree of Wishes

Aru Shah and the Tree of Wishes by Roshani Chokshi

Pandava Quartet book 3. Spoilers ahead for the earlier work

The tale continues -- taking up with the cliff-hanger of the last book.

They meet the last two Pandavas, and one of them utters a prophecy. Alas, their chief job was to see to it that the vilsains did hear it, and they failed. They are ordered off the job. Indeed, the two new ones are too young for any mission at all.

The story unfolds and involves a bug, a husband favoring one of his twenty-seven wives over the others, the festival of Holi, all sorts of birds, a place Aru has been to many times, a nagi prince who joins them very early, questions of trust, a lot of secrets, and more.
