Book 12: Like the jacket reads, everyone has their own versions of Ramayana and Ashok Banker's Ramayana is certainly worth a read or two. Giving a magic realism spin to the Indian epic, Banker's Ramayana is divided into 8 parts spanning across the life and times of Ram. The first book retells the tales of Ram and Lakshmana killing Taraka and proceeding to Mithila for the swayamvar. Unputdownable!

Starting a new book #Shivaji by #AshokBanker

It's true that a book shouldn't be judged by its cover but then call me shallow.😉.
Love the cover art. It's awesome.

Avengers Assemble.
Brown Girls style.
I really, honestly wanted to love this book because it has a premise that makes my "Save - the - World" fanheart boing with joy.
Except for Sia's POV (heartbreakingly accurate), I couldn't get myself to care for the other characters. Also, Mr. Banker's need to sound maha-cool (his words, not mine) as the voice of contemporary Indian teen girls grated on my nerves.
You don't need the trite lingo, Sir. You have a lovely idea. Please make the sequel into the magical, evil-alien-decimating, girl-empowering, haters-eliminating sequel that it has the potential to be.
Please?

'He was just a boy. They all were. Even the largest of them' - All the Light We Cannot See
How do you reconcile yourself with reading when the last book you picked up was a premise in war interlaced with the sadness about the futility of it... As monsoons fade all around and a chill enters the air, September is the month of blue green books, one about modern history, another one about medieval, one set in an alternative timeline and one just about a man having grown old. Two read, one to be read and one to be pondered over. Time passes, but the wisdom contained in books continues to leave an impression page after page. .

Awaken by Ashok Banker is the first in the thrilling Shakti Trilogy set in contemporary India. Ashok Banker’s action-packed and brilliantly imagined Awaken introduces our unlikely heroes who must discover and harness their superpowers before they can protect and preserve the Earth from the wrath of a menacing alien invasion.

It's been ages (never?)since I read a good #fantasyseries based in India, and I am quite looking forward to this one.

#32. Ashoka - Lion of Maurya - Ashok K. Banker

Quote from the Book I Liked - No matter how tempestuous or destructive, a storm always passed. It was the way of things.

Starts - 3/5

The book was a one time read with the Author leaving a lot of Suspense to be covered in the following 2 Books. The story takes you in the deeps of the life of Ashoka, with her mother Rani Subhadrangi and his Guru the Great Chanakya himself. From the Battles to the Ugly Politics, the book is a Full Pack which can't be stayed Put. But the whole Plot for the future books seems to be portrayed in this book. I wish the author to surprise me in The Future 2 books with some totally Unexpected Twist and Turns. Will be waiting for the next 2 Books.
