India, 3400 BCE. A land in tumult, poverty and chaos. Most people suffer quietly. A few rebel. Some fight for a better world. Some for themselves. Some don’t give a damn. Raavan. Fathered by one of the most illustrious sages of the time. Blessed by the Gods with talents beyond all. Cursed by fate to be tested to the extremes. A formidable teenage pirate, he is filled with equal parts courage, cruelty and fearsome resolve. A resolve to be a giant among men, to conquer, plunder and seize the greatness that he thinks is his right.
truely great ending. 1st part was boring though.

waste of my precious credit
Here's a numbered list for why this book is really bad.
1. the dialogues are extremely repetitive. if I had a penny for everytime "Raavan raises his hand to stop the conversation" I would be uncle scrooge right now.
2. the plot is extremely nonsensical. Amish now does plot twists for only shock value. Abandoning the theme of the characters and making them behave in the extreme opposite way to what they were throughout the series.
3. ruins the mythological elements of the book by making extremely preachy points about modern day politics.
4. Amish in completely in over his head when it comes to depicting Raavan. he waters down one of the most magnanimous anti heroes to ever exist into a drug and alcohol addicted mess.
