Rishi and Ananya are childhood friends. A happy group of twelve adults and youngsters had taken off to a lovely cave outside the town. Most of them had been there before but it was a day out with their near and dear ones. Way up the steep hill to the cave they set out eagerly calling out comments. Ananya and Rishi carried on running, reaching the cave to look at everything before others reached.
They explore the caves but to their astonishment, they see something not expected of the cave and Ananya challenges Rishi to find that out. They venture into the deepest secrets of the cave and meets a figure with a glowing green stone. Rishi soon finds himself in a race against time and a struggle against mysterious forces.
Cheryl Rao’s latest book Green Guardian is a fight against good and evil. Will Rishi be successful in his mission to rescue Ananya and what else will he find when he finds her? This story is layered and reminds us of brotherhood and friendship.
