Fun South Asian fantasy with lots of puzzles

The story follows 4 young adult royal siblings who overcome various estrangements from each other to save their country and fulfill their fathers's dream of uncovering the secrets of magic. Each chapter shifts to a different sibling's point of view which keeps the story telling fresh and allows the reader to see the various tensions at play for each character. The road to restoring magic includes a lot of logic puzzles. I liked the fantasy being set in ancient Indian culture and the pervasive cultural references. I liked that the royal line is matrilineal. I would recommend to middle grades or young adult fantasy fans.
