ABOUT THE BOOK
LANKA WILL BURN. DARKNESS WILL PERISH.
BUT CAN LIGHT ENDURE?
INDIA, 3400 BCE.
Greed. Rage. Grief. Love. Smouldering tinder, waiting to trigger a war.
But this war is different. This one is for Dharma. This war is for the greatest Goddess of them all.
Sita has been kidnapped. Defiantly, she dares Raavan to kill her – she’d rather die than allow Ram to surrender.
Ram is beside himself with grief and rage. He prepares for war. Fury is his fuel. Calm focus, his guide.
Raavan thought he was invincible. He thought he’d negotiate and force a surrender. Little did he know…
The first three books of the second-fastest-selling book series in Indian publishing history – the Ram Chandra Series – explore the individual journeys of Ram, Sita and Raavan. In this, the epic fourth book of the series, their narrative strands crash into each other, and explode in a slaughterous war.
Will Ram defeat the ruthless and fiendish Raavan, constrained as he is by the laws of Dharma? Will Lanka burn to a cinder or fight back like a cornered tiger? Will the terrible costs of war be worth the victory?
Most importantly, will the Vishnu rise? And will the real enemies of the land fear the Vishnu? For fear is the mother of love.
