    Description
    'The Secret of the Nagas' and 'The Immortals Of Meluha' is a set of two books that form the first two-part beginning of the Shiva trilogy. The first part 'The Immortals Of Meluha' is set in a time when Shiva wasn't a God; as the story unfolds, Shiva is hailed as a protector for the residents of Meluha. But will he live up to it?

    The second part 'The Secret Of The Nagas' takes the tale further to the era where Shiva is deemed as a God. But, the evil forces are back to seek revenge. Read the book to experience the feel of the racy and spine chilling adventures that lay ahead.

    Summary of the Book

    The Secret Of The Nagas and The Immortals Of Meluha are the first two parts of the Shiva trilogy. These books belong to an entirely new genre of Indian novels because of the mythological- fiction theme.

    The Immortals of Meluha is set in 1900 BC. This is the story of a man whom legends hailed as God. What modern Indians know as the Indus Valley Civilization was previously known by its residents as the region of Meluha. This was the near perfect civilization built by Lord Ram, who was considered to be one of the greatest monarchs ever lived; until doom befell the kingdom and the Chandravanshis allied up with the gruesome Nagas to attack Meluha mercilessly. All this, until 'the savior', Shiva, comes to the civilization.

    Is he really the savior? Can the residents of Meluha avert this tragedy? This is a story of the times when Shiva was a man, who would be later deemed as God. The second book in this series is The Secret of the Nagas, which is set 4000 years after that of The Immortals of Meluha.

    The gruesome Naga warrior has assassinated his friend Brahaspati and now haunts his wife Sati. Shiva is the destroyer of evil and he won't rest till he figures out his adversary. This book takes you on an epic journey throughout the entire country as Shiva endlessly tries to trace down the culprit; only to later find out that he has been betrayed by his own advisors.

    With the forces of dark manipulating his every move, will Shiva be able to rescue Meluha again? Will he be able to unmask the shrewd puppeteer? This book is filled with unbelievable revelations and mysteries.

    Writing Style

    Amish unfolds the concept of Karma and reincarnation in his books with succinct ease. His style of penning down instances is gripping and makes a compelling read. The depiction of Shiva's intoxicating dumru and chillum is spine chilling and gives you a taste of his intensity.

    One of the best

    The shiva trilogy is one of the best books I have read. As the reviews of the book says "A definite page turner". When u start reading it u wont even knew when u reached the next page. The story is so paced that its not too fast nor too slow, just right that u ll keep on reading and end up cursing everyone who interrupts u.
    The trilogy consist of 3 books
    1. The immortals of Meluha
    2. The Secret of the Nagas
    3. The oath of the Vayuputhras
    The story is about Shiva, who was once a normal fierce ...

    Where angels fear to tread

    The author deserves to be congratulated for a brilliant exposition of one of the basic truths of spirituality while charting an independent route away from the mythical path.

    God is within. The hero Shiva is portrayed as a mortal human being but with outstanding leadership qualities, an incisive and analytic mind that does not go by blind faith or superstition but has a penchant for getting at the truth without prejudice or bias. Compassion for friends and victims of falsehood is another ...

    Great Service, Refreshing Read

    First things first, Flipkart is awesome... It was my first order from FK and with the safety net of COD. The books came in 2 days, all nicely packed. Now I buy more regularly with prepayment options.
    About the books, both of them are a refreshing read... kinda Indian LOTR. I liked the first book more than the second. Found the story line a little too simplistic for my taste, would have preferred a little more complexities and layers to the characters. However, Amish Tripathi has done a commen...

    awesome flow

    Dear all, Earlier When I chose these two books to read I was a little skeptical of Lord Shiva being personified. However to decipher a truth one has to go through it, this thinking compelled me read these books though reluctantly. As I proceeded my journey I was simply awestruck with the flow of thoughts and amazing use of philosophy, Ancient history, history, geography,science, military science, mythology etc. I am sure author or some of his family member is/was connected to our proud Armed ...

    Bhoom Shiva!

    In college my grass head bong (bengali for those who don't know) friends used to reverentially call on the name of Shiva before sucking in on weed. I found it kind of funny and thought it was some crutch to legitimacy for smoking pot.

    The Immortals of Meluha gives the back story to the reverence. The crutch may have been a figment of my imagination....or not...

    Amish Tripathi's trip into the myths of history, reimagining Shiva, is immensely enjoyable and a fast paced, gripping read. Ex...

    once you've got a hold of the book....the book gets a hold on you!!!
    Shiva Trilogy sets a trend in Mythology revisit and binds its reader with something more than a story...the book stops being in chapters and begins playing in scenes inside your mind thats the brilliance of Amish!!!
    the characters come into existence and play their destined roles.
    Immortals of meluha begins the journey which you will love and the perfect sequel the secret of nagas maintains the unconventional beauty of the t...

    " THE CREATOR AND THE DESTROYER-LORD SHIVA "

    It's really a one of the best book to read and offcourse an intresting one as well.It definitely makes you to read it again and again, its because of its beauty and how a common person/warrior become a god.
    Totally it has three parts/3 books
    A.THE IMMORTALS OF MELUHA.
    B.THE SECRET OF THE NAGAS and
    C.THE OATH OF VAYUPUTRAS.
    Its a story of a common man later which shows that how a that common man become a mythological hero or a god.

    Good resurfaced fiction

    A good story, which is best read; out of the actual puranic context.Because a lot of changes with regards to timeline, story, characters...etc are done in this manifesto. People who read this book please enjoy the story alone and please dont conceive this as the ultimate explanation of 3500 years old puraNa. There is a lot of difference between the original and this one. So just read it as another story and I promise u'll never stop once started reading.

    Author has best tried to mix up recor...

    Okay but not great

    Flipkart's service was, as usual, excellent. Received the books within 24 hours of placing the order.

    However the books themselves were a tad disappointing, didn't really lived up to the adulation being showered on them. They manage to keep your attention, but not your fascination.


    PS: Good thing that flipkart doesn't allow a rating of 2.5.

    Just fiction.

    I am a fan of Indian mythology and though the book might have a great literary value but for me it was just another fiction. I had bought this book to learn more about lord shiva but it turned out to be anti-climatic. There was hardly any connection established to the indian mythological stories about lord shiva. A lot of revelations in the book seemed like the authors own views without being backed by some documented proof. Book itself is an exciting story but for people looking for insights...
