5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended
By Kavita on 25 May 2019
My Take:

One word mind blowing. Couldn't fall in love more. I always have empatised more with the not famous queens be it Urmila, who had to sacrifice everything for Lakshman and never got her due or Mandodari now who went down the history as Ravana's first wife/ queen.

The highlight of the book is Mandodari is portrayed as a normal woman, who chitchats with her friends, feels insecure of her husband's roving eye,is jealous seeing her husband taking other wives,yet standing tall and maintaining her sanctity and decorum as a Queen.

There was more to her personality and the sacrifices she made are exemplary. A story of a simple girl who fell in love with the ambitious powerful king Dasaanand, whose lust for power and beautiful women broke the wife's heart. In spite of knowing Ravan's characterstics she still trusted him and loved him the most. The book prominently highlights the emotional turmoil of a wife, lover.

You connect with the character from the start and as the story progresses she becomes a part of you. You sympathize with her feelings, her journey and also get to know some different aspects of Ravana's personality. Most of the books till now has not justified him as a person, exception I would say Asura. He's depicted merely as a villain who kidnapped Sita.

Sometimes words fail to do justice to the emotions captured by the author, you just feel the and thank the person for making you feel /explore that aspect of the less known one.

I would rate this book 5/5.
