In Bridge Of Rama, a retelling of the Indian mythological epic Ramayana, Rama sets out to rescue his wife Sita from the clutches of the demon Ravana.
Summary Of The Book
Three millennia after it was first written, Ashok Banker presents a multi-part series recreating the tale of Ramayana, one of the greatest epics in Indian mythology. This book, the fifth part of the series, picks up the threads of the story from its predecessor, Armies Of Hanuman.
Kidnapped by Ravana, the demon-king of Lanka, Rama’s wife Sita is spending her days as a captive in the Tower of Lanka. Trapped as she is in a garden built on illusion, she has no means to escape it, and her solitary attempt to do so also proves futile.
Elsewhere, Rama is preparing himself for a final showdown against Ravana. Due to the successful efforts of Hanuman, his staunch devotee, Rama now has the stupendous backing of an army of monkeys as well as an army of bears. Together, they set out towards Lanka.
But isolated by the vast ocean, Lanka seems to be an impossible destination. Despite this seemingly insurmountable obstacle, the armies begin to build a bridge to Lanka, using nothing but their brains and bare hands. Amidst all this, Hanuman learns an empowering secret about his lineage. Bolstered by this new knowledge about his superhuman potential, he sets out to face Ravana and single-handedly rescue Sita.
Given Hanuman’s newfound strength, Lanka might be in extreme danger. On the other hand, the efforts of one rampaging monkey might not be enough to tackle Ravana’s legendary demon hordes. Sita’s fate hangs precariously in the balance.
The book highlights certain elements such as Rama’s strict adherence to dharma, the powerful love and bond existing between Rama and Sita, and Hanuman’s supreme devotion to Rama. In some places, it does differ from the original text written by Valmiki.
Bridge Of Rama was published in 2005. This edition is a 2006 reprint by Penguin.

I heard about this book from one of knowns... and then on flipkart it was available. I ordered it immediately, this one and the "Prince of Ayodhya". These books are fantastic. i am looking forwadrd to order rest of the 5 books from this series of Ashok.k.Banker.
The 5th volume in the Ramayana series sees Hanuman take a role of prominence and introduces the other soldiers of Rama's army to us. Sita in solitude is also a key focus of this book as her thoughts are revealed to us when she finds out she's expecting.
A good story to build up to the mother of all battles building up.
