The Immortals Of Meluha is a thrilling story about a warrior named Shiva, who is given the responsibility to protect the empire of Meluha from dangerous intruders. This mythological novel is fast-paced, and focuses on duty, love, principles and more.
Summary Of The Book
The land of Meluha is an empire created by Lord Rama, and it is ruled by the Suryavanshis. This empire is powerful and proud, however, the Saraswati river that is their source of water is slowing drying up. On top of that, the empire is at war with the Chandravanshis who have allied with The Nagas, a group of sinister and deformed human beings who have extraordinary martial art skills.
The Immortals Of Meluha, published in 2010, is the first story of the trilogy. Daksha, the king of the Suryavanshis, realizes that his empire needs help. He invites a tribe from Tibet to help him fight off the enemies. The Tibetan Guna tribe is lead by Shiva, who is a fearless soldier, and the only one who does not fall ill on arriving at Meluha. To everyone's surprise, Shiva’s throat turns blue.
The locals believe that this warrior is their fabled saviour Lord Shiva, also known as Neelkanth. Shiva goes to Devagiri to meet Daksha and his daughter Princess Sati. There, he learns about the dangerous wars and terror attacks that the Chandravanshis have carried out on the Meluhans.
The brave warrior gets enraged, and declares a full war on the enemy. Readers will find this mythological fantasy to be gripping and exciting. Questions about Shiva’s duty, destiny, and karma arise throughout the book. The author has written a book that is adventurous, mystifying, and captivating, but at the same time he also has thrown light onto the subjects of what is evil, and who is truly a hero.
This page-turner is a treat for readers who enjoy history, fantasy, and adventure. The Immortals Of Meluha received good reviews from leading newspapers, and was a bestseller within its first week of release.

Apart from concept, everything else is crap.Apart from the concept, everything else is crap. According to me, the book became a best seller only because of marketing!!!

Party spoiler is here!There are books which are written for reading and then there are books which are written for movie making. This one falls in the latter category. Reads like a movie script.

Three Star : Read only for the plot!

Nice concept, but written in a very americanised language- full of slangsThe concept on which the story builds is very creative. But somehow the description seemed to me to be a 'khichdi' of scenes and story-lines from various movies. I could see scenes from Troy, 300 in the war descriptions. Then again Shiva is a character having self doubts very similar to Neo (Matrix) and needs Trinity (Sati) to remove them. The role of Oracle is played by the 'Vasudevas'. All in all a nice attempt but somehow I feel that management graduates in our country have too much proclivity for creatively packaging the product that they have lifted from various shelves and flourishing it… (Expand)

A complete let-down!Books like these may have been inspired by books like the 'The Palace of Illusions' (which was a brilliant one). While the idea of creating a fantasy based on Indian Mythology is a brilliant and inspiring idea, 'The Immortals of Meluha' falls far short of the weakest of expectations that any reader of this genre would have! Very weak writing, and not much of creativity either. My expectations hit a reef on Page 13 and further reading did nothing to improve my opinion of this author. Definitely not a good read.
