Publisher's Summary

Combining mystery and mythology, this epic fantasy is a global best seller with over 300,000 copies sold.

India, 3400 BCE. The ancient kingdom of Mithila is divided by corruption, resentment, and poverty. An abandoned baby is found in a field protected by a vulture from a pack of wolves. Soon adopted by the rulers of the land, she is named Sita, and raised as a princess and beloved daughter.

But the neglected kingdom of Mithila continues to face dangerous political troubles due to its selfish, apathetic king. In a bid to stabilize affairs, Sita's mother, Queen Sunaina, sends the spirited young princess away to a gurukul to complete her education. Under the guidance of her guru she discovers her true destiny: to become a warrior who will defend Dharma. A Goddess who will protect her people until the end of time.

Nothing to do with Ramayana

If you aproach these books looking to find a story relating to the characters of the Ramayana it is highly dissapointing. For example Sita, the Lady of Darmha, getting an assasin to kill an officer of another kingdom. Are you serious!
Ramayana original story is far more richer, far more interesting than this.
I enjoyed the Shiva saga but this trilogy is a NO in my opinion.

Very intriguing

This book has got some really good detailed writing that describes the small details when it comes to war description. I just didn’t like the repetitions of few scenarios that were already covered in great details in the Scion of Ikshvaku book. But overall good book!

interesting story which was beautifully narrated

I have read the Ramayana... but I've come to like Amish's version so much more, seeing God's as humans makes them more relatable, but, the part I love the most is the way Sita is portrayed as a Vishnu and that Ram and Sita shared the responsibility. I have always found that the other version do not talk about her sacrifices and importance as much. Even though I love reading then listen, Sagar Arya's story telling has made this audiobook a beautiful experience.... definitely recommend😊

This book is so bad.

Looks like Amish got influenced by Anand Neelakantan (the guy who writes mythological stories realistically from the Antagonist’s perspective)

Amish tried to do that but he screwed up really bad.

It’s such a waste of an audible credit and almost 10 hours of listening time.
Now I don’t care about the third book in this series.

Great story, hopefully mostly true from Ramadan

Great story telling, almost makes you visualise the experience. I just hope most of it is translated from original Valmiki Ramayana which was originally in Sanskrit.

Not exciting

Although I enjoyed the Sita's side of the story and perspective initially , 80% of the story repeats from the book 1 of th Ram Chandra series.
Thus just the first few and the last few chapters of the book are somewhat engrossing.
The rest of the book can be quite boring and repetitive.

Seems A great story has been ruined just for commercial benefits

There are 2 type of readers. One who are interested in the events that are going to unfold and the other who enjoy the way the events are described. This book is good for the later ones since there are almost 60% events redundant to first book.Only the way of storytelling has changed. Looks like one book has been split into two for monetary benefits.

Awesome

loved the book, just like the first part. The way it explains the problems of India today is incredible. Amish has really done a good job, as always.

Not able to listen properly

Not able to go beyond a certain point of chapter 4, even though I downloaded it on credit?
