Scion of Ikshvaku

The cover of the upcoming book by Amish Tripathi has been released with a lot of fanfare by Akshay Kumar and the book is now exclusively available for pre-order at Amazon India. Scion of Ikshvaku which is the first book in the Ram Chandra Series has been uncovered after three days of suspense.

The cover, designed by Think Why Not, has been a matter of discussion. According to team, the cover depicts a distraught Ram shooting at Ravan’s Pushpak Vimaan in which latter has kidnapped former’s beloved wife Sita.

Now if it is true then Sita will be kidnapped in the very first book of the series. I think I’ll miss the sweet and innocent romance of Ram and Sita which is their in the original story. Well Ram Chandra series will be the Amish depiction of Ramayana and might not follow the same pattern of the original story. It is expected to be fast paced and thriller so this is something to be seen that the book will have that same family bonding and warmness as the original one.

Along with the jacket, plot of the first book is also revealed. Here is the summary of the book Scion of Ikshvaku

Ram Rajya. The Perfect Land.But perfection has a price. He paid that price.

3400 BCE. INDIA
Ayodhya is weakened by divisions. A terrible war has taken its toll. The damage runs deep. The demon King of Lanka, Raavan, does not impose his rule on the defeated. He, instead, imposes his trade. Money is sucked out of the empire. The Sapt Sindhu people descend into poverty, despondency and corruption. They cry for a leader to lead them out of the morass. Little do they appreciate that the leader is among them. One whom they know. A tortured and ostracised prince. A prince they tried to break. A prince called Ram.

He loves his country, even when his countrymen torment him. He stands alone for the law. His band of brothers, his Sita, and he, against the darkness of chaos.

Will Ram rise above the taint that others heap on him? Will his love for Sita sustain him through his struggle? Will he defeat the demon Lord Raavan who destroyed his childhood? Will he fulfil the destiny of the Vishnu?
