𝑵𝒂𝒎𝒆: Raavanputr Meghnad, Prince of Lanka

𝑮𝒆𝒏𝒓𝒆: Mythological Fiction
𝑴𝒚 𝒓𝒂𝒕𝒊𝒏𝒈: 4.5/5
𝑺𝒚𝒏𝒐𝒑𝒔𝒊𝒔: This is the story of Meghnad, who is known as Indrajit. A great warrior with special interest in science, Meghnad had captured Amravati, the capital abode of Devas and when the war of Ramayana took place, he had even successfully defeated Lord Raghav. But when with the help of his love of life, Prameela, he learns the truth behind Sita's abduction and the war he was forced to fight, he is forced to embark on a difficult task. What is this truth that ravages the greatest warrior of the Rakshasa?
𝑹𝒆𝒗𝒊𝒆𝒘: I have read the story of Ramayana and I didn't place any importance on Indrajit as a person, as I was more interested in how he will be defeated. But to read this books with a new and fictional perspective of Meghnad's life and actions, has really peaked my curiosity. The author has taken the essence of the original epic and tweaked the circumstances just a bit so that the end results remain the same as the original Ramayana, but the motives are now more complex.
It has been speculated that though Raavan had abducted Sita, he had never laid a hand on Sita's honor. The author has given a plausible explanation for this fact. Surpanakha is shown as a strong and intelligent woman and she has her own motive in the war. I was reminded of Kansha while reading her story.
There is an interesting explanation about several things that we had taken for curses or ailments in the original Ramayana. The one that appealed to me was the reason behind the six month slumber of Kumbhakarna, who has been depicted as a brilliant scientist.
It was a bit disconcerting to find the story has ended in just about 300 pages when the whole of Ramayana was, well, an epic. Of course, the story focuses on Meghnad and the story of his life and death. But I had hoped to read about more of his exploits. From the time, Prameela came into his life, to his last breath seemed very short and rushed. It is just me of course, I want elaborated stories.
Anyway coming to the basics, the narrative is smooth and the language is easy to read. The whole structure of the story is beautifully made and I couldn't find any loopholes nor any questions remained for me. Recommended 👍

Set in Treta Yug, it's the story of Meghnad, the son of Ravan and how he met his love and fought for his father's cause. But it's not your everyday retelling. It's entirely different from the original epic, so definitely worth a read.
The cover is glorious much like our hero, and the title is powerful and straightforward.
I was prepared to be amazed by the book.
I didn't find anything wrong with the story but for some reason I'm not bowled over by the story.
I haven't read alot about Meghnad anywhere, so this is my first proper retelling where I get to read about Meghnad, now as per the disclamer the story is turned to suit the requirements. Now, that part is interesting because it shows an alternative to what could have been and that's also why i love reading retelling. It's no hidden truth that Kevin Missal's writing style is amazing, so the narration was great, points for that. The love story is great, because it was not sudden. Meghnad and Prameela didn't fall in love at the first sight. It happened when they spent some time together and felt some attraction they decided to act on.
All the characters are well sketched but other than Meghnad no one else developed. Meghnad is like Jamie from GOT whom you might hate in the first season but love by the time the last episode rolls in. Prameela and Meenakshi on the other hand were brilliantly coloured.
The blend on science and Mythology to create the weapons was epic indeed. The language is fairly simple and colloquial. The story is engaging and doesn't feel like long even though it's 300 pages. The best part has to be the motive behind the whole war. The worst part was, as a female I abhorred the sexist remarks in the story. Clearly, the rakhsas culture had no concerns for women.
Overall, a fantastic retelling. Just don't compare it with the original epic else you will fail to enjoy the story.
