Amish has taken us on a beautiful visual journey with the Siva Trilogy and the third and last book of the series was brilliantly cenceptualized and powerfully written. The author's protrayal of our loved Gods Ganesh, Karthik, Siva and Sati is simply awesome. Love the depth of each and every character, loved the intelligence behind every war strategy and loved the fact that the words weaved amazing visuals of ancient India. --Archana Jayarajah Mar 21, 2013

I bought only first part of the trilogy because I wanted to have it try.But Part 1 complled me to buy second and third book of this series.
After reading all 3 books I can say that you will not get bored . Though it is fiction based on some factual names and places, It will improve your thinking and you can relate some of the explanations dipicted in this books to real world .
Over all It is a mixture of fictions and facts and your perception for Shiva as god will completely change.
one more thing This book contains a rich vocabulary which can enhance your literature sense and you are going to learn new things which you can apply in your day to day conversation , speech and writting.
I am actually an atheist now, after spending many years in worshiping God. But Amish felt the other way round, as he finally found his God, Shiva.
I bow low to Amish in respect, for his effort in creating this great book.
Anyone can write a story like 'Everyone has a Story', but not everyone can create larger than life characters like Amish, simultaneously expounding the valour of Indian mythology and how it can help us live a better life !
The mighty god of gods and devils and everything the mighty pashupati is reimagined as a common MAN... Yes it was something new for readers which made this book become a bestseller in less time.
The story is well narrated I would not spoil your experience telling anything but I may recommend this book... But but but there is one thing that even if the gods are re imagined as common people then also the end should be a happy one... If you are familiar with story of lord shiva then, we know that parvati ( his wife) gives up her body in Daksha (her father) yagya... Now this is where the book disapoints me... The third part "oath of vayuputras" didn't pleased me as the 1st and 2nd part... But still I enjoyed the journey of a man god.
All the character and qualities are fitted very nicely in fictional character also.
If you want to enjoy this book really... Then just don't relate the fictional characters to real gods... Or you won't enjoy and also you won't be able to digest the story.
Written by Amish Tripathi
This was the first series of books that I read one after another back to back.
This entire series contains total three books,
1☞THE IMMORTALS OF MELUHA (1st book)
2☞THE SECRET OF THE NAGAS (2nd book)
3☞THE OATH OF THE VAYUPUTRAS (3rd book).
Obviously this series is a mythological fiction.
This entire series has everything like thrill,mystery, obviously a lot of action, adventure, some times comedy, tragedy & many more things, which make this book a perfect read for everyone.
I spent almost the entire august with this books,they were damn good & attractive. And obviously a page flipper without any doubt.
Basically I heard a lot about this books therefore I had started reading it & i'm not disappointed at all.
This is obviously not a review, i'll share my review regarding every single book of this series ASAP.
I really like everything about the book like the plot, storytelling, writing style etc.
I would say,, everyone should read the 1st book atleast, because I'm pretty sure that after reading the first book nobody can resist himself/herself from buying the next book.
No doubt the author made tons of money by duplication of ancient and historical texts. Shame.
✔️In this book Shiva reaches the Naga capital and finally the evil is revealed. Shiva prepares for a holy war against his true enemy, a man whose name instils dread in the fiercest of warriors.
✔️Shiva reaches Pariha, the land of fairies, to the ones who have never offered any help to him: the Vayuputras.
✔️Will Shiva succed to take out the evil out of equation? Will Shiva take the right decision for the future of India? How will Shiva succeed and who are on the side of the Lord Neelkanth?
Om Namah Shivaiy.🙏
The universe bows to Lord Shiva. I bow to Lord Shiva.🙏

For a writer I think it is important to write a book from however their point of view and as readers to respect the method of use they have chosen, as it is their work and if he feels his writing has done justice to the book then we must take his word for it, as no one else could have created what he did, because no one else has his imagination as he does not have many award-winning novelists imagination, or else we'd be reading the same things everywhere! The author's style of writing is his chosen method and he can tell us his story in any which way he deems fit. I think his effort is praiseworthy and it is to be applauded for the attempt of something written in an epic context with a laid back approach.
I would recommend this book simply because it has piqued an interest for anyone reading this, and you should read it because you want to and not because someone is suggesting it to you. A decision of liking a book should always belong to a reader after reading a book and not after reading the review of someone else who has read the book.
1. How negotiations were conducted with Vayuputras?
2. In the end, Neelkanth army was much more capable (support wise, strength wise and circumstances wise) to destroy evil and take revenge of Sati. But he used Pashupatiastra - which killed innocent people, destroyed a city, poisoned river etc.
3. Before the destruction of Devagiri, the Meluhan citizen's character looked greater than Neelkanth to me. They had courage and vision to take responsibility of something which they did not conduct personally. They showed more greatness than the Lord Neelkanth himself.
4. Not much was talked about how "Bhrigu" changed his stand after Sati's event. Bhrigu was not emotional, he was a strong believer of what is he thinking and doing. How he lost sight of his believe and started believing in Neelkanth way. I could not understand how someone's personal sacrifice changed him.
A good read but end could have been made better.
It then runs out of steam and struggles to deliver the ending it needed which is a shame.
You read the book wanting more which you get but not enough to feel satisfied by the journey the trilogy takes you on
The real value of the book lies in the spiritual angle to it. The hypotheses on "the nature of the universe", "how good and evil are one and the same" and "the purpose of human life in this world" are noteworthy and can be applied even in the modern world. They make the book worth revisiting more than once.
The decisions taken by Shiva in the final chapters may be questionable for a living God. But I wonder if that was the entire point of it. The protagonist of the story is human after all.
It is great to read this view of Hindu Mythology. I recommend it to everyone interested.
