Shadows of the Sun Dynasty is a deluxe illustrated novel adaptation of the Ramayana- the classic Hindu epic. This book appeals to both adult readers and teenage readers. It pairs divinely inspired art with intimate portrayals of Rama, Sita, Lakshama, Ravana, and many more.
Welcome to the royal city of Ayodhya, a realm ruled by the Sun dynasty, where peace reigns amond the citizens while discord simmers behind the palace walls. A prophecy predicts that a son of the Sun dynasty will slay the immortal Ravana and defeat his demon army- but how will a human succeed where all the gods have failed?
Shadows of the Sun Dynasty was listed as a Silver Finalist for the 30th Annual IBPA Benjamin Franklin Awards.
