About the Author
Amish is a 1974-born, IIM (Kolkata)-educated, boring banker turned happy author.

He is passionate about history, mythology and philosophy, finding beauty and meaning in all world religions. Amish’s books have sold more than 5.5 million copies and have been translated into over 19 languages.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
I'm posting a complete review after a year. Then you ask me why should I took this much time to review this product. Obviously I take one year to finish this book.
I know you will get surprised ☺ but it's true,
Once I completed this book I'm so sad 😔
Because every day I'm finishing my work and going to the home with an ecstasy of reading this book. Trust me it's influenced a lot #
SITA Warrior of Mithila # is the second series of ram Chandra series book. Amish, the great Indian magical pen pusher give a delicious threat on this novel. 😍
The story starts with the queen of Mithila found a abandoned child from a forest.
Then the story growing up with the life of that child called "sita" this is not just a story.
It clearly says the meaning of the life and our purpose in life. The story goes with the struggles of that girl and how she overcome those hurdles. One day she become a legend. 😍😍😍
It's an inspiring story # # no doubt in that. #
@ thanks a lot Amish. And too amazon for selling this book
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 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
Out of the box narration style

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

It covers the same period of time (plus a few hours!) that the first book does but from the view point of the other main character. It covers both her separate route and also the times together. These latter can be a little repetitive, especially if you reading this book soon after the first. But they do ADD depth and understanding - most of the time.
The philosophical debates which are core to the cultural background of the story are still here but are a less complex than in the first book ( or perhaps I have learnt more!).
Well written and in places I really wanted to keep reading however at times, although not boring, it was easy to take a break.
I look forward to the third book but not with the “must get it now“ urgency that other trilogies/series I have read have created in me.
Sita's backstory is in line with the modern enrichment of female lead characters and greatly appreciated.
Good read - but will be interesting to see how unique the Ravaan backstory will be considering a really good one already exists: Asura: Tale Of The Vanquished by Anand Neelakanth
Amazing Book! Finished it in about 4 days, kept me gripped from the start. The story is interwoven with the first book in the series, you will recognise some of the plot if you have read book 1, but keep at it, as it all eventually makes sense.
Spot the plot give away in the first paragraph of the book.
Cannot wait for books three and four.
