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.

good and Disappointing at the same time

Nicely written and narrated excellently. About the book, many many pages are just a repeat/ copy paste of the first book.
This is the second part of a series & I don't understand the meaning of repeating already explained terms/incidents in the previous book with so much details a small explaination would have sufficed.
The story has not moved an inch in these two books.

hopefully the 3rd book "Ravan" will finally start moving the Story forward

There wasn’t a need for this book or if there was it could be a shorter one

Amish did a great job as always.. loved Ram- the scion of Islkshvaku.. however there are multiple chapters in the ‘Sita’ wherein pages were copy pasted from the book ‘Ram’... I understand the need as those were the junctions of parallel stories in these books but even the details of the characters were repeated as it was in the previous book. Probably the book is meant for those who directly started reading 2nd book of Ram series and do not feel that they have lost anything... but for the one who loved the 1st book and want to finish 2nd and 3rd quickly, it becomes boring at few places due to so much repetition...

A desperate attempt to continue old saga

from the meluha which emerged as sheer imagination meeting logic. A change in perception, this one is not unexpected. Auther is engrossed in vividly expressing the imaginatory world while matching it up with present day somehow. reference of colaba mimba devi walkeshwar was astounding. though didnt felt great. also some of the sequence are mere hindi movie like sequences narrated in similiar fashion. good read ofrca change though

Unforgettable

Brilliantly woven. A tapestry that swerved in and out with the last book, dancing in emphasis on the different events, filling in the gaps. A true masterpiece.

Epic Epic Epic!!!

This is an epic story telling by Amish. Our ancient Hindu mythology has come alive with a new Avatar. The story of Sita is an detailed version of Ramayan is truly amazing. Now I am eagerly waiting for the next chapter Raavan!!!!

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.

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.

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😊
