‘The worse it gets, the harder we’ll fight – it’s what we do’Deep in the cosmic centre, Yggdrasil, the battle between Edasich the Hyena, and Elrai the Good Shepherd, is not going well. The signs that warn of unmitigated destruction are everywhere, and Harish Chandra’s Clan must fight for its very life and the future of the world. Lives will be given and lives will be taken when the gods themselves join forces with the Coven, Hsimah the Fang Collector and Álfhildur, Queen of Elves, to fight the final war against the evil Edasich. Once more into the breach, the twins lead the charge – while Adit has to journey to the centre of the Earth with Vera, a powerful witch gone rogue, Akshat must bring the Book of Guardians alive. Amar and Ananya, Tarini and Noor take their powerful gifts and indomitable hearts to war, risking everything in this last stand. Meanwhile, urgent questions loom: Who will hold the centre steady when Ragnarök, the Churning of the Ocean, begins? Can their uncle H’s new avatar, the centaur, foresee the future in the stars? Does someone hold another Starstone, the repository of supreme powers? And the most terrible knowledge of all: Who is the most formidable foe on the battlefield? Spellbinding and intense, The Eye of the Archer concludes the tenacious campaign of six extraordinary young people against a fearsome force that threatens to destroy everything good, everything worth saving, everything alive.

About the Author
Giti Chandra is currently Senior Researcher with the Gender Equality Studies and Training Programme at the GRÓ Centre (under the auspices of UNESCO) in Reykjavík, and has been Associate Professor, Department of English, at St. Stephen's College, Delhi. She is the author of the Book of Guardians trilogy: The Fang of Summoning (Hachette India, 2010), The Bones of Stars (Hachette India, 2013) and The Eye of the Archer (Hachette India, 2020). Her (mostly sci-fi) short stories and (mostly sentimental) poetry have been published in various amazing publications. Sadly, nobody cares about her first nonfiction book, a groundbreaking academic work on violence [Narrating Violence, Constructing Collective Identities: 'To Witness These Wrongs Unspeakable? (Macmillan UK/US: 2009)], but the next two, on the #MeToo movement [The Routledge Handbook on the Politics of the #MeToo Movement (Routledge UK: 2020)], and colonial violence (In Visible Texts: Hidden and Spectacularised Violence in Colonial Asia and Africa), are going to be bestsellers. Giti writes poetry in April, paints on Tuesdays, has a PhD from Rutgers, and feels that people would do well to learn that a cello is not an oversized violin. She lives in Reykjavík with a husband, two kids, a dog and a cat.
