"Amish is India's first literary popstar." --Shekhar Kapur
About the Author
Described as 'India's first literary popstar' by world-renowned film director Shekhar Kapur, Amish's unique combination of crackling story-telling, religious symbolism and profound philosophies have made him an overnight publishing phenomenon, with spiritual guru Deepak Chopra hailing Amish's books as 'archetypal and stirring'.
Amish's books include the Shiva Trilogy (The Immortals of Meluha (2010); The Secret of the Nagas (2011); The Oath of the Vayuputras (2013)) and the Ram Chandra Series (Scion of Ikshvaku (2015)). His books have sold over 3.5 million copies with gross retail sales of over Rupees 100 crores. The Shiva Trilogy is the fastest selling book series in Indian publishing history. Scion of Ikshvaku was the highest selling book of 2015. His books have been translated into 19 Indian and International languages.
Amish won various awards, including the Raymond Crossword Book Award 2015 for ‘Scion Of Ikshvaku’.
Forbes Magazine has listed Amish amongst the 100 most influential celebrities in India, four years in a row. He has also received the Society Young Achievers Award for literature in 2013, Man of the Year by Radio City, Communicator of the Year by PR Council of India, Dainak Bhaskar Reader’s Choice Awards and Pride of India award (Literature). Amish was also selected as an Eisenhower Fellow, a prestigious American programme for outstanding leaders from around the world.

Also the character of sita is inspiring and the tale told leaves us awed and entertained.
Takes us to the realms of myths converting to real possibilities and makes us realise the strengths and depth of each characters.
And even though we know the Mythology by heart, amish has skilfully made it to make us feel the moments on the edge, with suspense and thrill.
Wonderful book for pop culture mythologies.
I finished this book within a fortnight. It was good read, better than first book 'Scion of Iskvayu'. It indeed brings out many characteristics of Sita's upbringing in new light.
The book delivered by Amazon was well packaged, received a good quality book, nice font size, lightweight
Out of the box narration style
Rich Visual Imagery
Rich Tapestry of Cultures
Each of the lead characters including the protagonist Sita has been sculpted to perfection by Amish. He has decided to take on the tricky “Hyper-link” approach for this book and characters are of primordial importance for this style to click. The characters not only click but Amish manages to simply ace them with flying colors . He manages to do so in his own signature style courtesy creative forays into the character & granular to the nano-level detailing about the character.
Out of the box narration Style:
Amish needs to be applauded for having the taken the less-trodden path as always. Taking a story which is based on a epic and is a revered nation-wide is a challenge in itself. Its like a double edged sword and there is a very thin-line between what might work with the readers & what might leave them fuming. Amish manages to ace this aspect as well yet again by keeping the crux of the story & plot intact & yet respectful through his signature narration style. There are quite a few characters to remember but the pacing & style has been crafted in a such manner that as readers we simply manage to glide through the book easily just like how a knife glides in butter.
Rich Visual Imagery:
This attribute I feel is going to be the X-Factor for this particular installment. It helps us visualize each of the characters as though they are standing just in front of us. Who needs a VR headset when Amish chisels the characters to perfection and makes them in front of us with his amazing command over language, detailed depiction and rich tapestry of words. Google came out with “Google Lens” but Amish had other ideas. Not only the characters but the kingdoms and their architecture are brought out to the millimeter level of detail in front of our eyes. Even the working of the Vimaan has been brought out in front of our eyes. Last but not least the Jallikattu scenes.
Rich Tapestry of Cultures:
We get to see and learn about a whole variety of cultures through this book. Be it in regard to the various Kingdoms and their lifestyle, palaces everything has been brought out well. As someone from Tamilnadu I would like to thank Amish from the bottom of my heart for painting our Ancient & Traditional Sport of “Jallikattu” in all its glory. When I completed that particular chapter I literally had goosebumps all over. I am sure & confident you will get many more similar feedback about this particular chapter.
Amish the Champion story teller leaves us in a daze and thanks to the hyperlink style of narration the expectations about the next installment is sky-high. Thanks to the teaser book about “Ravan” we are at-least able to douse at-least a part of the “Expectation” flame. Now the long wait the book waits. Amish ji !!! please borrow Ravan’s Vimaan and send it to us at the earliest 🙂 🙂 #Sitawarriorofmithila #RangasReview #AmishTripathi
I have never seen a book written in series with so much repetition, felt like writer did not have anything new to add on in this book so he picked up from previous book. I am big fan of Amish writing but this was disappointing
Just like his other books, Amish makes you care about the characters.
Despite being mythological characters, he makes them "human"
He does have some twists (The cliff hanger was predictable as in "who", not "why" - for which need to wait for the next book)
I was surprised that this time it is going to be 4 book series, not trilogy. But the way he writes, I don't mind. More the merrier.
