An amazing read

The Secret of the Nagas to me is a channel between the first and the last part of the trilogy , it unfolds the plot more revealing some radical secrets some of which are really surprisingly good while there are also some of which are predictable to an extent. Never the less the second installment proves as enjoyable as the first part - Our hero Shiva and his beloved Sati and there is a dark secret that unfolds later..

The book is fantastic and is a must read

Awesome!

The second part of Shiva Trilogy is just as amazing or more than the first part, Immortals of Meluha. You will love this if you love to see the mythological history of India is portrayed in a different manner.

Just read, and you will feel it

Not upto expectations but still Very Good one !

If u liked the First part you will like this one too, though this one wasn't as good as previous part but still very much enjoyable.

This part has a lot of content in it and very well written too. I felt at some parts it was turning out to be masala bollywood movie story but thank god it didn't.Also in first part though there were some technically wrong assumptions (Like Lord Ram was present before era of Lord Shiva) but it was very much believable but this part makes it all fiction work.

A 'cool' Shiva for you!!

i really liked the book.. it gives you new angle to think about the idols you pray.. without forcing you to accept the new image .. or continue thinking them what they are..
The thing i want to appreciate the most is the way different connections have been build.. like ganesha.. kali.. i know all this would have needed a grand effort in storywriting and keeping in mind no loops are left open!
awesome work Amish.. looking forward for ur third book!
PS - i liked the 'dude' Shiva!

Beautiful mix of Mythology and Fiction

I did not have the slightest idea of the contents of the book before I read it. But while reading the book it took me to a different world of mythology and fiction. As Amish has rightly said in one of this interviews, this is a work of fiction based on some mythological characters. The journey of the book keeps you enthralled.

Some of the concepts in the book, like the Somras, the concept of Har Har Mahadev, etc. are very interesting and grabs your attention instantly.

I STRONGLY recommend ...

Good for a newbie...

If you are fresh into reading, read this. If you are more of a vet read this for it's simplicity, will remind you of your kiddo days. The writer has taken the liberty to play with mythology, then again it is after all mythology. The book starts off well with the image of Shiva taking a deep drag of his chillum. After that pretty much a racy Good Vs Evil story peppered with interesting anecdotes of an advanced society in the past.

More interesting than 'The Immortals of Meluha'

A little more interesting than 'The Immortals of Meluha'. But I think that is how it happens when the whole series has been thought of before starting writing. Unlike the forced sequels which most often happen to be disappointing rather than interesting.

But what I don't like about the author is that he ends the story too abruptly. I don't think that's necessary to make the readers look for the next book in the series, for they would anyway do so if they really liked the book.

Thirst to know "what happens next?", is there in every page you turn.

Awesome books- The Meluhans and The Nagas. Its going to be the best trilogy in Indian writing,ever. The eagerness that Mr. Amish creates in every page and the way the war and emotions are described,he has created the image of Siva in every readers mind as a real hero,down to earth. After the reading of this trilogy,people will have the same image of Lord Siva and his family and friends,in the same way how Mr.Amish has imagined.

Recommended for casual read

I would give this novel 3.5 but there is no option :(. I am not spellbound by this fantasy novel as compared to other fantasy novel. The pen portrait of anything/any person doesn’t allow you to hold on to the character or place for a long time. It just runs smoothly. You easily flip from first page to last page. No sense of excitement while reading what would happen next except reading 'to be continued' at the end. So if you want to grab something out of book shop for casual reading or light ...
