The King Of Ayodhya

The Final book in the series by Ashok Banker.
Yup, much as I wouldn't like to do a spoiler- Ravan gets killed in this one. But some good parts have been eliminated- the one in which Rama sends Lakshman to collect the wisdom from Ravan as he was dying.
Even the mode of his death is different from what we know.
Vibhishan has joined Rama's forces but rather than participating, he seems to be meditating. I always thought he was the instrument of the victory.
The war is fantastically depicted- even though it is a bit too much and I was tempted to speed read or skip sections.
Kumbhkarna is killed by Hanuman in a fantasy war in the middle of the sea- not as per the version we have always known.
So go on, get the set for a new series awaits us
Slayer of Kansa- the first book is already in my hands!

actually you let us know abt these books. I make a mental note of these books to buy- Prince of Ayodhya & king of Ayodhya.

You have a real flair for these kinds of books and motivate us to read these.
