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!!

This is a second book that I read of ramchandra series. The first one was raavan the enemy of aryavarta. The experience was amazingggggg!... especially due to Sir Sagar Arya's narration. But I think Raavan: The enemy of aryavarta was a better in term of story than this book.

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

informative and entertaining!

The story was very good. it was interesting to know more about Sita's birth , childhood , her gurukul days and her meeting with Ram. The disappointing part was the repetitiveness of many chapters. The end though was shocking .
Worth hearing once since it's narrated wonderfully by Sagar Arya.
Read the reviews of next in series Ravan.
Wondering whether to buy it or not. Honest reviews please.

don't like the presenter....I don't know who reads a book with so many variations ...some manly voice-overs also sounded very feminine at times

Brave Sita

Right from my childhood I heard that Sita is softnatured girl but from this story I came to know that She is mentally strong and she had a great vision about India and she is the real warrior.

Wonderful narration

In the name of lord Rudra...amazing narration. I was able to make scene of every chapter, every character have a different voice and emotions are displayed very skilfully by variation in the voice tone.
Must listen/read.

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.

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😊

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.

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!

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.
