History Hunters Book 2: Akbar and the Agents From the East

Shruti Garodia

Archana Garodia Gupta

How would YOU feel if you were a prisoner of a mighty ruler 450 years ago?

The feisty foursome – Zoya, Noor, Ansh and Rohan – and their endearing elephant friend Elfu have only just recovered from being flung back thousands of years to a bloody battlefield. Before they know it, they are whirled once again through time, and land in the court of Akbar, the powerful Mughal emperor.

Sent by the mysterious billionaire who lives next door to their Goa resort, the youngsters have a mission to accomplish, but dangers lurk at every turn. They must dodge poisoned robes, outsmart hidden assassins, overcome fierce warriors and even escape execution by elephant!

How will the four friends handle the challenges thrown their way? Can they complete their quest and make it back to their own times safely?

Join the sometimes audacious, sometimes heroic and often plain lucky History Hunters as they brave the dazzling, baffling world of the Mughals in another wild adventure.

PLUS! 20-PAGE FACT TRACKER Must-know information about the Mughal period!
