Add my review for Prince of Ayodhya (The Ramayana, Book I)

Book description:

From critically acclaimed Indian author Ashok Banker comes an original epic fantasy based on the ancient Hindu classic The Ramayana--written in the tradition of J.R.R. Tolkien, Robert Jordan, and Terry Goodkind. Embodying all the elements of a classic epic fantasy, the ancient Hindu mythological tale The Ramayana is full of sweeping adventure, gods and monsters, and a questing prince. Now, author Ashok K. Banker adapts The Ramayana into an impressive epic fantasy. The hero of the first book is young Rama, heir to the throne of Ayodhya. When two powerful rakshasa--demons who have raised a formidable army of anti-gods--plan to take over the land of humans as well, the legendary seer-mage Vishwamitra is forced out of a 240-year-long retreat to call upon Rama for his help in the eternal battle of Good against Evil.
