Sita: Warrior of Mithila by Amish is the second book in the Ram Chandra series. The book takes us back to the childhood of princess Sita. It begins where the first book, Scion of Ikshvaku, left off. What Sita was doing at the time of the kidnapping is described in great detail. The reason for the kidnapping is also revealed. The book is another must-read by the author that will give you a fresh perspective of the great Indian epic. However, you might not see Sita in the same light that you used to after reading this book.
The book is fast-paced and unputdownable. It portrays Sita as a brave and practical princess and prime minister of her country. She is not the docile and timid princess that we have known for all these years. She is a warrior, an orphaned girl, an adopted princess, who is about to change the course of history. The book provides us with a very different perspective. It has described her life in great detail right from her childhood to the point where she was abducted by Ravana. There are a lot of other important characters in the book as well. Hanuman and Jatayu being the most significant ones. They are portrayed as brothers to Sita. They are always present to guide her and give her all the information that she needs.
The book provides us with a very different side of the story that we have heard many a times. It provides us with a fresh perspective and lets us know that things are not always as they seem. It is well written and very vivid in its descriptions. Even though some instances are repeated from the first book, it is hard to put down. Sita: the warrior of Mithila is a must-read for all the Amish fans out there.
