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.

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😊
