The Iron Ring is a thrilling Indian epic of daring adventure and deep humanity. Take an incredible journey with King Tamar and his sidekicks – a brave and beautiful milkmaid, a cowardly eagle, and a wily monkey – as they try to win back his kingdom. Rooted in the mythology of ancient India, the story follows the travels of young Tamar who loses a game of chance with a mysterious stranger and finds himself on a voyage full of comedy, challenge, and adventure.

“The imaginative scope of the story and its philosophical complexities will make this an exciting journey.” – Publishers Weekly

“Epic Iron Ring shines like a many-faceted jewel.” – Star Tribune, MN
