This is my fourth book by Kavita Kane. Earlier I had read Karna's wife, Maneka's choice and Sita's sister. I really like the way she develops each and every character in all her books as if the characters come alive in her writing. Their emotions, love, pain, hatred, manipulations and just about everything. Lanka's sister gives us a deep insight into the character of Surpanakha about whom most of us only know about the famous incident that happened at Dandaka forest which led to the battle of Lanka but this book gives a deep and thoughtful insight into the character of Surpanakha her emotions, pain, rejection and hatred and the circumstances which eventually led to the battle of Lanka. Not only Surpanakha but each and every character has been developed beautifully. It is like knowing Ramayana from another angle. Just finished reading and felt like writing this review.
