Crossword Book Awards Finalist Prashant Pinge to Debut Young Adult Fantasy Novel
by BWW News Desk - Aug 16, 2014

What if your shadow wasn't the docile grey shape you thought it to be? What if it held a vicious plague just waiting to be released? And what if the fate of the entire world rested in the hands of four children? Sceadu by Crossword Book Awards finalist Prashant Pinge intricately weaves together elements of psychology, mythology, and fantasy to offer young adult readers a thrilling adventure that takes place within the human shadow. A verse from a century old book leaves four children stranded in Sceadu, a land inside their shadows. 'I wanted to provide a rational explanation for the existence of this place,' says Prashant Pinge. 'And that's why I have used the concept of The Shadow from a psychological perspective. However, it still ties in beautifully with how a shadow is defined in physics as well. It is what makes this adventure so believable.' The children find themselves on the run from the Hefigans, creatures of Sceadu. However, things take a turn for the worse when they realize they have unknowingly triggered an ancient prophecy which promises to unleash an apocalyptic plague back home. With the survival of their kind at stake, the children have no choice but to face the treacherous Hefigans who are just as determined to claim a world they believe to be their legacy. Sceadu will be released globally via Kindle on 10th November 2014 and will be subsequently made available on other e-readers. About Prashant Pinge Prashant Pinge is an acclaimed author of children's fiction from Mumbai, India. He has been writing for over a decade, with four books and two short stories to his credit. His books have been nominated for the Crossword Book Awards, with Raja & the Giant Donut being shortlisted in the Children's Writing category in 2011.
