Publisher's Summary

Without the darkness, light has no purpose.

Without the villain, what would the gods do?

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.  

A man of contrasts, of brutal violence and scholarly knowledge. A man who will love without reward and kill without remorse.  

This exhilarating third book of the Ram Chandra series sheds light on Ravaan, the king of Lanka. And the light shines on darkness of the darkest kind. Is he the greatest villain in history or just a man in a dark place all the time?  

Listen to the epic tale of one of the most complex, violent, passionate and accomplished men of all time.

Good listening experience

Know the story of Ravan from different perspective. To know him you have to first unlearn what you know and learn his stories. Very logically explained events and encounters. Reasoning given through conversation on Dharma, Ayyappa Temple, Sita’s etc birth are excellent. Broadened my horizon. 5 starts for Amish and Sagar Arya ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

An ancient Indian epic, with moder philosophy.

Amish has done it again. Flourishing his imagination and showcasing indian ancient epic in a most realistic way possible.

I did feel that the book at times was predictable, but that may be because we are familiar with the story line of the the epic we've seen and heard it throughout our lifetime.

All in all, I can't wait to read and listen to its sequel.

Ravan the Emperor, lover, brother and smuggler.

Is Ram right or the ravan?
there are many questions rather than answers however this book is simply amazing and breathtaking at some moments, like when Wed get to see the love between two brothers. there are many instances touching the listeners heart.
thanks Amish ji for this mesmerizing journey of the life of the Ravan, waiting for your next book.

Another Cliff-hanger

Everyone knows the story of Diwali, in where good "Ram" faces off bad "Raavan", but how many of you know the real reason why "Raavan" kidnapped "Sita" and the true image and character of the so call "10 headed demon"? Amish truly brings out this definition of the King of Lanka, with the love, pain and struggle he goes through the years and makes to think twice of the whole "good vs. bad".
