The original Ramayana was written three thousand years ago. Now, with breathtaking imagination and brilliant storytelling, Indian writer Ashok K. Banker has recreated this epic tale for modern readers everywhere.For thirteen long years, Rama and his companions in exile have defended themselves against the brutal incursions of the rakshasas of the wilderness. Finally, in the bitter battle of Janasthana, he achieves the long-sought victory, and retires to the sun-dappled glades of Panchvati to wait out the last months of his exile.But unknown to Rama, the demoness Supanakha has survived and escaped - back to the hellish island-kingdom of Lanka. There, she provides the key to resurrect her stricken cousin Ravana, lord of the rakshasas. And the resurrected Ravana seeks only one thing: vengeance against Rama . . .
