In the beggining, the story "The Serpent's Secret," takes place in Parsippany, New Jersey.
The Serpent's Secret
Take Heart, dear daughter, we were hoping for the last dozen years that it would not come to pass. But it has happened--the magical spell protecting us all has been broken on this, your twelfth birthday. Forgive us for trying to shield you from the truth. Now there is too little time to explain. Whatever you do, do not let any rakkhosh into the house. Trust the princes to keep you safe, but more importantly trust yourself. We leave here some extra rupees and a moving map in case you find them of use. But I beg you, do not try to find us.
When Kiranmala discovered that her parents were in a very dangerous place and they left her things that would really help her
When Neel and Lal showed up to kiranmala’s house. Trying to help her.
Author- Sayantani Dasgupta Lal (In red), Neel (In blue), and Kiranmala
She comes face to face with a Rakkosh and realizes something, the rakkosh also destroys her house.
This is an important event because everything that was said in the note helped her along the trip like the map. Without the map her parents would have never been found. And without the rupees, she would have never been able to buy the bow. And without the birthday card telling her about the princes, she would have never trusted them and would have called the police instead of going to save her parents in a different dimension that she never even knew existed.
Kiranmala found out Neel was Part Rakkosh and his mom was an evil rakkhoshi queen.
That is important because that is how the journey to save her parents began. That is when she found out she was actually a princess.Plus, that was when she met two of the main characters in the book.
When Kiranmala went into the cavern to get the jewel with Neel
It is just a normal day and then she went face to face with the scariest monster she has ever seen for the first time. Then, Lal and mostly Neel save her. She also finds out that she is also very strong and remembers a little bit about her past. She realizes she has fought such a demon like this before.
This is important because that explained a lot to Kiranmala, that explained was he was very strong, fast, and very rude. Of course that is important to find out that someone who is trying to help you find your almost dead parents is actually part demon and has been keeping this secret since the beggining of the journey.
That was important because in that moment she had to be brave and heroic and she had to trust Neel. That part showed her bravery and how even though she was scared, she was heroic/. She was literally getting attacked by the biggest serpent she had ever seen in her entire life, and even though she was scared, she still did it for her parents. She knew she could of killed herself but risked her life for her parents.
