"A powerfully dramatic retelling of a Hindu epic......Sheth’s writing voice is completely vibrant and compelling—and this is lucky since the task the authorial team faces is almost impossible: making a third book in a trilogy comprehensible to new readers. Even the most supportive newbies will probably want to dive into the previous volumes before this one...the audience will find Sita a strong and vivid character in this potent finale." - Kirkus Reviews
