    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.

    1. 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.

    2. Lord Shiva is documented in the scriptures as a god possessing qualities of high meditation and is third eye in the foreh...

    Only a moron can like this crap

    Unfortunately 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.
    An extremely interesting premise to try and reconstruct one of the most intriguing characters from mythology but let down by crappy imagination and an idiotic sense of narrative.
    I believe its just the complete morons who would find this entertaining and want to read it.

    The So called Secret of the Nagas

    The 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).

    The second book, boils down to this:
    Lord Shiva makes an enemy out of his father-in-law and becomes friends with the Nagas. That's about it. The book tends to lose focus and meanders all over the kingdom.

    I just hope the second book is a stepping stone towards the third and that the th...

    Pop Mythology : Hindi Serial-ish

    Summary - Interesting characterization, nice blend of myths and facts. Builds into a nice plot and then runs like an confused hindi serial which stretches and stretches...Potpourri, Pop-Mythology.

    The first book builds into an interesting plot. The characterization is interesting and could have been a more evolved,modern and engaging piece of fiction. The writer's need to keep the plot alive brings about a serial-ish style of writing towards the last chapters....Reminds me of the typ...

    Secret of Nagas - A complete dissappointment

    Totally 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!!

    By far the best Indian Series

    Just read it and you'll know.
    Please read the first book before this otherwise you will not understand anything.

    Amish Tripathi has done a fantastic job. Don't think just buy it, you wont regret it.

    And it is more than worth its cost

    Flipkart at it's best and the book of course !

    Got my order in just 24 hrs. ....that's indeed fantastic.
    Immortals was all about Mehula ..but this one explores the Swadweep ... that means more adventures.
    Shiva's platoon now consisting more people is unbeatable.
    As the title of the book indicates ..SECRETS ...yes there are secrets which kept me spellbound !!
    Readers should go for this book ..with the price Flipkart is offering.
    Eagerly waiting for the third book The Oath Of The Vayuputras !

    Sober fair compared to the 1st part

    I was extremely excited for the 2nd part of Shiva Trilogy and even pre-ordered this book. But unfortunately it just didnt live to my expectations. Either it was too patchy not it was too worked up in few chapters... Comparatively, Immortals of Meluha, was a rocker and I loved every bit of it... It was a huge canvas for me... Nevertheless, I will still keep waiting for the 3rd and final chapter, Oath of Vayuputras as I really love Shiva for the way he is... Raw... Original... Rusty... Amazing!

    Great comeback

    Kudos to the author for improving on the first part. You relate to the protagonist and the doubts he faces. Beautifully scripted.
    I am sure the next one will be even better as the author ties all the ends together.
