More filters. Sort order. It isn't often one comes across a book by an Indian author, with a sequel. It is even rarer when the said sequel might just be better than its predecessor. Tripathi once again delves into Indian mythology and spins a fascinating tale around many of the names heard in tales told at our grandmothers' knees, portraying them as mere mortals.
Last left, Shiva was about to launch an attack on the dreaded Nagas to avenge Brahaspathi's death. The book's blurb gives you enough indication, and then some, t It isn't often one comes across a book by an Indian author, with a sequel. The book's blurb gives you enough indication, and then some, that Shiva's plan might not be that easy to execute. His desire, and ours, for answers takes him all across India in this book, with the city in focus being Kashi. I'll give the book this, the author has good command over the story and doesn't let it meander, with something or the other always afoot.
Filled with secrets, shocks and betrayal, this book is a page-turner from start to finish. The reveal of the Naga's identity was shocking, to say the least. The "secret" of the Nagas, however, was something I had long suspected so I wasn't blown away by the "cliff-hanger". As for that Master Pupeteer, I think it's view spoiler [Bhrigu hide spoiler ]. There's a suspicious character if there ever was one!
But, the book is not perfect either. Many issues are brought up and then never addressed again, or explained properly. Or this mysterious plague that seems to affect them, nothing is mentioned as to what it is or why it is happening or how it started and it is never brought up again after that chapter. Sati annoyed me a bit in this book. Anandamayi, however, was a delight to read about. I couldn't help but grin every time that feisty, saucy girl sauntered onto the page!
The author often uses the story to put forth his opinion on many issues - like Karma, ethics, consequentialism, existentialism and the balance of Good and Evil. Though it is clearly intended to make you think, sometimes it does get a bit too much.
I get that the author has tried to give the story as modern a take as possible, but I can't quite digest the fact that these people know of "radio waves" and "accumulator machines" OR that they say things like "You're a year old virgin?? Just me? But maybe that's just me. Go read. View all 43 comments. Shelves: r-r-rs.
I feel like I just finished reading one of the Star Wars installments. With Shiva as Anakin, Sati as Padme, unexplored regions with strange inhabitants with secrets and continuous travels The book was just too formulaic. That is not to say that it is not a good read - it is just that I was expecting the second book to be better than the first in some ways at least, and quite frankly, it is not.
How Amish managed to construct a whole sequel on such a flimsy basic premise is beyond me. The entire series essentially boils down to single mythological point - the Shiva-Ganesh showdown - the entire story is an elaborate construct to lead towards that, which was disappointing, especially since that too never happens after all that buildup.
And the secret? It is just that Brihaspati is alive and working for the Nagas, which only means that the Nagas are on Shiva's side. Now that was obvious from the first book and was no "secret". That is too much to swallow even if we play along and accept his version of the Shiva myth hide spoiler ] Overall, the story is good, the new take is innovative and refreshing at times, but the narrative style, especially during the abundant action sequences is amateurish and repetitive.
Glibly written, without much attention to the nuances of the mythology or to known historic facts, the book still manages to be a good, smooth story. Easy to read and enjoy, it truly is an amar chitra katha in novel form as the cover proudly? While the book makes for a fun fast read, I cannot in good conscience recommend it without telling that anyone who picks up the book looking for literary enjoyment is going to be terribly disappointed, but if all that is needed is a way to pass a few hours, then it might be worth it.
Surely it will make a good movie someday, with the disappointing and predictable plot twists that is characteristic of most Bollywood movies. View 1 comment.

With the realization of the truth that Chandravanshis were not evil, protagonist Shiva realized that he made a mistake by declaring the war in the first book, The Immortals of Meluha.
The second book in the Shiva Trilogy reveals the face of actual darkness. The Secret of the Nagas by Amish portrays Naga's point of view, which affects the life of Sati and Shiva questionably.
