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.

Nice concept, well written and some daring ideas- they very well summarise this book. The language is simple and lucid. You get a feeling like you are reading a comic. This is not a history book, some of the ideas are really daring and cannot stand the scrutiny of penetrating historians. I, especially liked the idea of the meaning of "Har Har Mahadev". In short, I think the book is immensely readable and the writer can really go a long way. BUT, I would like to suggest something to Amish. By writing a trilogy, I hope he knows what he's doing. A new writer, his first book.....and incomplete. Asking your readers to keep waiting for the next episode----isn't it a bit too much to ask for, Mr. Amish. So I suggest the next book be complete in itself. The trilogy can very well be in sequels rather than episodes. Good luck!
There are few authors in India who write exceptionally well. Amish is one of those. I am a vivid reader and read almost all the books that come my way. This stands fifth.
1. Corporate Chanakya
2. That's the way we met - Sudeep Nagarkar
3. How I braved Any Aunty - Varun Aggarwal
4. The Backbenchers - Siddharth Oberoi
5. The immortals of Melhua- Amish Tripathi
A well written book that uses familiar mythological events and characters in a more human setting. Despite some silly references I still found myself unable to put the book down. Will definitely read the sequels coming out soon. Give this book a shot. If you like fantasy you will not regret it
A good attempt for a banker who has been moonlighting for years to write not just a novel but a trilogy to begin with and then show exemplary marketing skills to pump up the sales anyhow to make it sound like a best seller. Good to see that so many people have actually taken up to reading novels from contemporary authors.
I give the credit to the author for touching upon some good topics (superficially though) i.e. the trilogy between PERFECTION (Suryavashi way of life), IMPERFECTION (Chandravashi way of life) and DISTORTION (Naga way of life) using Shiva to unite these for attaining a common objective. However the plot of the story got burried in the dust of over-emphasis on Vikarma and castigation of Nagas.
Even the concept of polarisation of Masculinity and Feminity was not done due justice with.
I liked the lines "nobody is a bye-stander in a dharmayudha, eaveryone is bound to take sides" and "just because they are different doesn't mean they are evil" and "to destroy evil, one has to first identify the evil".
What i did not like is the blasphemous characterisation of Hindu Gods. Shiva is portrayed as a Tibetian warrior with rare dancing skills who falls for pretty women, disbelieves in religion, pouts to blow kisses at his wife during yagnas, smokes grass un-inhibited, and slaps out bawdy jokes.... Sati as a widow, kali and Ganesh as ostracised people born with deformity, Gopal (Krsna) as a pandit in a temple, Parshurama as a mindless bandit in the Sunderbans, and lot more gross references. Had it not been a dig at the most docile religion, any other religion would have given the author a run for his life.
No wonder it is loved so much by those who feel that bashing religion is in fashion.
Even as a trilogy the first books fails to convey anything at all. It is a mere prolonged introduction to the second book with an abrupt end. They second book actually drives home some plot of the story.
I hope the third book brings out some improvement in the writing skills and the editors won't have to work too hard.
not long ago I was an avid reader of books until audio books came by and other interests preceded by hungry to read and be addicted to books until I read The Immortals of Meluha last month in 2 days!!! This was one hell of a page turner and I simply couldnt believe the fact that people in India have started to write some simply amazing books which cater to a large audience who have been longing for... What Amish has done is simple fantastic as most of the young Indian Authors in the past have stuck to the usual youth rom-com books. This is a wonderful book and this has triggered a chain of events in my family where they are longing to read it as soon as others are done with the book.
And as a matter of fact, I booked The Secret of the Nagas book immediately after reading the first 2 chapters... And to top it up, Flipkart has been amazing and your site UI as smooth as a butter and sometimes better than Amazon's look n feel. I wish all the success and luck for Flipkart as well as Amish...
And BTW, Waiting desperately to hear about the 2nd book!!!
after a long sabbatical from reading, I chose this book to brush up my reading habits! :P
