    Ram Rajya. The Perfect Land. But perfection has a price. He paid that price.

    3400 BCE. INDIA

    Ayodhya is weakened by divisions. A terrible war has taken its toll. The damage runs deep. The demon King of Lanka, Raavan, does not impose his rule on the defeated. He, instead, imposes his trade. Money is sucked out of the empire. The Sapt Sindhu people descend into poverty, despondency and corruption. They cry for a leader to lead them out of the morass. Little do they appreciate that the leader is among them. One whom they know. A tortured and ostracised prince. A prince they tried to break. A prince called Ram.

    He loves his country, even when his countrymen torment him. He stands alone for the law. His band of brothers, his Sita, and he, against the darkness of chaos.

    Will Ram rise above the taint that others heap on him? Will his love for Sita sustain him through his struggle? Will he defeat the demon Lord Raavan who destroyed his childhood? Will he fulfil the destiny of the Vishnu?

    Begin an epic journey with Amish's latest: the Ram Chandra Series. >br/>

    An enjoyable read

    It is not every other day that I sit late at night reading a novel. As distracted as I am, I prefer reading books in installments. But Amish's Scion of Ikshvaku (Book 1 of the Ram Chandra Series) was an exception.

    The first thought on reading the initial pages was the similarity in writing style to the Shiva Trilogy. Amish is one of my favourite Indian authors for two reasons:- The theme, which is always based on ancient Indian history (I deliberately avoid the term "mythology" because I do ...

    An enthraling experience !

    Amish did it again. He proved that we all have that ability to become god provided we are willing to give up the required sacrifice.

    Don't buy products from this seller

    The book was clearly a pirated version. Poor quality paper and binding was coming off. This seller is offering lowest price because of substandard quality. Even buying from a certified buyer at flipkart was a rip off. It has never happened before.

    Below average

    A very bad mix of mythology and fiction. The author seems to be more affected by whats happening currently in society and included it in the novel citing it as a way of life at that point of time. Ex is Nirbhaya rape case of delhi and a fellow acquitted because he was minor. The event was presented in novel citing as one of the event happened at that point of time. The novel is neither mythological nor fictional. I was surprised to read the reviews given at the beginning of the book. I am sur...

    Power packed beginning

    The first book was really something with amish in his old narrative style.
    The only cons I found are:
    1) Couple of spelling mistakes in the first few chapters.
    2) Use of very modern languages like touche and some others.

    Apart from the cons it is a very good book and is almost like a film going on. Very much recommended to all who wants to read the old mythological stories with new interpretation and in the mean time have the same thrill as we are used to from amish.
    Will be waiting for it...

    Scion Of Ikshvaku - A Review [Good and Not so Good]

    My first reaction: Did I just re-read Immortals of Meluha with new characters?

    GOOD PARTS:
    Amish attempted to show that Gods are mere mortals who ascended the pedestal of human reverence for their virtues.

    Gods are not above flaws, but they restrict their flaws.

    Gods too have humour, frustrations and anger. Gods seem to realize the fine line between valour and craziness/stupidity.

    Amish made mythology interesting to read albeit through a very different view point.

    He made references to...

    Not as impressive as the trilogy

    If you have read Trilogy - you will NOT find this read gripping. The story moves on loosely and at times seems Amish is trying too hard to fit in logic to mythology. Was disappointed but will still give a shot to the next volume before calling it a day..

    Great potential unrealized

    ?To the read??er, the key USP of a fantasy book is to be able to visualize the author's word painting. As an author you get unbridled freedom to paint a landscape that is beyond even the wildest possible dreams. The promise of a trip to one's own wonderland is what makes people like me a sucker for fantasy genre.
    Amish Tripathy found the success formula in rewriting Indian mythology using a completely different set of ingredients. Humaneness, rationale, logic and a healthy dose of masala. Tha...

    confused author Below average..........

    It looks like Amish is confused writing the novel and sometimes while reading things seem to happen in present time like, " I love my India.", "Police." etc. Also he mixed fiction with mythology even mixed Mahabharat with Ramayana only characters are from Ramayan and everything else is pure fiction. If you want to write fiction then write fiction and do justice and if you want to write mythology write after proper research. For the sake of logic facts have been distorted badly. Its not recomm...
