There is no escape from destiny . . . is there? For four teenagers, the Ramayana is not just a tale. It is their fate! In every life they have ever lived, Vikram, Amanjit, Rasita and Deepika have been persecuted and killed by Ravindra, who aspires to the throne of Ravana the Demon-King. Now Rasita is a captive of Ravindra, and demonic beings are rallying to his command. Vikram and Amanjit must try to rescue Rasita. This time, failure is not an option. This time, if Ravindra wins, it will be forever. But slowly, pieces are falling into place. Why are the four friends reliving the Ramayana? Who was Ravana? Where is the real Lanka? Age-old mysteries are uncovered and forgotten powers regained, as the quest to end the tyranny of Ravindra moves towards its electrifying finale.
