Book review - Scion of Ikshvaku

Scion of Ikshvaku is the first book of Ram Chandra Series written by Amish Tripathi, an Author from India.

Amazon did not sponsor this review.

In 376 pages, Amish carries his readers on a journey of adventure, romance and morals. All characters and their relationships in the book are taken from the Indian Epic Ramayana. The book, so far as the story progresses, meticulously covers all known characters from Ramayana giving them a unique personality, style and nature. Amish has been careful not to replicate the Epic but write his own story. This makes it intriguing and exiting to look at our favourite childhood heroes in a different yet delightful light. The imagination and care that went into this work of fiction is exemplary.
