Shiva Trilogy – Set of 3 by Amish Tripathi
About the Book: The Immortals of Meluha, The Secret of Nagas, and The Oath of the Vayuputras comprise the Shiva Trilogy. Meluha’s Immortals, 1900 BC.
In what modern Indians wrongly refer to as the Indus Valley Civilisation. The inhabitants of the time referred to it as the kingdom of Meluha, a near-perfect empire established many centuries before by Lord Ram, one of the finest monarchs who ever lived. This once-proud empire and its Suryavanshi kings face grave danger when its main river, the venerated Saraswati, dries up and dies. They also suffer catastrophic terrorist attacks from the east, the country of the Chandravanshis.
To make matters worse, the Chandravanshis appear to have established an alliance with the Nagas, an outcast and malevolent species of malformed humans with incredible martial abilities. The Suryavanshis’ sole hope is an ancient legend: When evil reaches epic proportions, when all seems lost when your foes look to have prevailed, a hero will emerge. Is Shiva, the rough-hewn Tibetan immigrant, truly that hero? And does he even want to be that hero? Will Shiva, drawn to his destiny by duty as well as love, lead the Suryavanshi retribution and vanquish evil?
Nagas’ Secret Meluha is the second installment of the wildly popular fantasy book that tells the amazing narrative of Shiva, the man who was made God by the inhabitants of ancient civilization (The Immortals of Meluha is part one). He is a God today, but He was a mortal 4000 years ago. And Shiva, the Tibetan immigrant who is the foretold scourge of evil, will not stop until he punishes the evil adversary who has claimed the life of someone he cares about—and threatens another. There are significant risks present.
The evil Naga warrior he pursues murders Shiva’s buddy Brahaspati and is now stalking his wife, Sati. And the hunt will unavoidably lead him to the Nagas, the martial snake tribe. There is also evidence of the great growth of evil everywhere. A kingdom is in turmoil, held hostage for ransom.
