Ramayana: Divine Loophole

Chronicle Books

When Ravana, the biggest, baddest, and the most indestructible demon ever created, takes control of the universe, Vishnu, the god of justice, must find a way to stop him. Enter Rama, Vishnu's earthly incarnation, a handsome prince with electric blue skin, great aim, and a powerful destiny. Life is sweet until Rama, the heir apparent, is suddenly forced into exile by his evil stepmother, who wants her own son to be king. Setting off on a long journey through the forests of India, Rama's adventures have only just begun when Ravana kidnaps Rama's beautiful wife, Sita, and imprisons her on the island of Sri Lanka. What follows is a tale of love, devotion, destiny, and war that has long been a cornerstone of Hindu mythology. Princesses in peril, divine avatars, scheming royals, love-struck monsters, magic weapons, talking bears, flying monkey gods, and hordes of bloodthirsty demons populate this entertaining and colorful legend.

Ramayana: Divine Loophole presents a vision of the Ramayana like no other, with more than 100 vibrant illustrations, as well as sketches of the work in progress, maps, and a detailed glossary of the casts of characters—demons, gods, animals, and humans—who make up this epic story.
