The Shiva Trilogy is a series built around characters that are based loosely on those from Indian mythology and the Hindu Panthe on.
In the first book, The Immortals of Meluha, Shiva is a Tibetan tribal chief who is brought to the country of Meluha to save the people from their enemies. The Secret of The Nagas picks up from that point, where the first book ended.
Shiva’s wife Sati is stalked by the Nagas, who are a group of people forced to live in isolation because of their physical deformities. Shiva also holds the Nagas to be responsible for the death of his friend Brihaspathi of Meluha. He sets out to find the Nagas and avenge the death of his friend.
Shiva and Sati travel to Kashi. They locate a community of Brangas who they feel can tell them about the Nagas. Shiva prepares to sail to the land of the Brangas while Sati decides to stay on in Kashi.
In the course of the story, Sati learns a few secrets about herself and her family. She also gives birth to Karthik, her younger son. Shiva and Sati are temporarily estranged for various reasons. They learn the true identities of the Nagas who were stalking Sati, and the person responsible for the murder of Sati’s first husband.
The final part of the story deals with Shiva’s journey to Panchvati, the Naga Capital.

Entertaining1. According to this book, Lord RAM is well before the time of the arrival of Lord Shiva or Neelkanth. If that is the case, how did Lord Ram perform poojas to Lord Shiva in Rameshwaram which is described in detail in RAMAYANA? May be that was a different Lord Shiva in scriptures, with a different Goddess Shakthi with a different Ganapati and different Karthick as sons.

Interesting but not as good as the first part.I was really excited to read the second installment of this series. When I started reading this, I really expected more. But the story that is the journey of Shiva really seemed pointless to me.

Maybe Maybe notI stumbled onto The Immortals quite by chance when a friend of mine decided to buy the book(from flipkart, heheh) simply because he doesn't believe in mythology and often makes fun of my religious belief. but anyway, when i did get down to reading it i found it extremely entertaining probably because of the contemporary language and familiar story. We all love or fear Shiva in some way and seeing him as a man, quite human like us, yet having the virtues worthy of being worshipped is what makes this book a shining light in Indian Myhological Fiction, something we sadly have too little of.

Only a moron can like this crapUnfortunately this book proves that only a very small fraction of Indian writers can write fiction and even a smaller part of that can write fiction in English.

The So called Secret of the NagasThe secret of the Nagas is that Brispathi is alive. Those of you who read the first book will know that Lord Shiva thinks his closest friend Brispathi was killed by the Nagas (hence his hatred towards them).

Secret of Nagas - A complete dissappointmentTotally predictable, not really any secret in it. Is that really the secret!!! I guessed it a looong time back. Author wants us to read the sequel always. That's how he ends each book. I don't know how he'll finish his third!!
