About the Author
Amish is a 1974-born, IIM (Kolkata)-educated, boring banker turned happy author. The success of his debut book, The Immortals of Meluha (Book 1 of the Shiva Trilogy), encouraged him to give up a fourteen-year-old career in financial services to focus on writing. He is passionate about history, mythology and philosophy, finding beauty and meaning in all world religions. Amish’s books have sold more than 5.5 million copies and have been translated into over 19 languages.
From the Back Cover
Today, Shiva is a god. But four thousand years ago, he was just a man. The hunt is on. The sinister Naga warrior who killed Shiva's friends now talks his wife, and Shiva will not rest till he finds his adversary. Evil is everywhere Shiva looks: a plagued kingdom is held to ransom for a miracle drug; a crown prince is murdered; the Vasudevs - Shiva's philosopher-guides - betray his unquestioning faith as they accept aid from the dark side; even the perfect empire of Meluha has a terrible secret. Unknown to Shiva, a master puppeteer is playing a grand game. In a journey that will take him across the length and breadth of ancient India, Shiva searches for the truth in a land of deadly mysteries where nothing is what it seems.--This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

Har Har mahadeva
This book is really very interesting my only worry is how much of the facts are close to reality obviously we dont know what actually happened in past but we should always try to go as near as possible to the truth.
Problem is most of us " the current generation" dont read sacred and ancient texts hence what we saw in Mahabharath or Ramayan or Shiva stories on television became reality for us now these books are bringing new point of view of same stories and coming generation will believe these to be true hence its a great responsibility for writer to be as close to the truth as possible.
May Almighty bless you with wisdom...
For the book... The Secret of nagas is one of the finest i have ever read. Infact shiva trilogy in itself is marvellous. Its the blend of action, adventure, suspense, thriller, mystery everything. Most beautiful part is the language. Its very simple to understand and every point is well defined in book. Once you start you do not wish to stop. I had a great time in reading the series.
I was so excited to read this but i'm waiting to start part 3.
No doubt the author made tons of money by duplication of ancient and historical texts. Shame.
Shiva is truth. Shiva is beauty
Shiva is the masculine. Shiva is the feminine
Shiva is a Suryavanshi. Shiva is a Chandravanshi
Shiva! The Mahadev. The God of Gods. Destroyer of Evil. Passionate lover. Fierce warrior. Consummate dancer. Charismatic leader.🙏
🔺The secret of Nagas is the 2nd book in Shiva trilogy. After reading The Immortals of Meluha this book is wonderful continuation. I was literally very curious to know what was going to happen later..!
🔺This book is a wonderful package of thrills and reveals a lots of things that will change the life of many. This book explains about good and evil which resides within us like two sides of a coin.
🔺This book is worth reading and a must read book for mythology lover. I enjoyed reading this piece of work and loved the detailed description of all the characters.

I went back to Amazon page a number of times to make sure that this was the first book in trilogy, it is and being the Kindle version, it must be true but I couldn't be certain, even after reading ten percent of the story, there is no explanation as to who Shiva is or how he got his great fighting skills, even basics like who is parents are or his wife ( she was part of the action , then she vanished as we move on). Names and places are very confusing to read and they come thick and fast and one really finds it hard to make sense of it all.
Another disturbing fact is how the temple at Ayodhya is mentioned again and again and a king even donates huge tribute towards its construction. It doesn't really concerned me one way or the other but this is totally wrong, to treat such an inflammatory issue in such a careless way was telling, I was reading the story so I could learn more about Hinduism but I kept feeling like I was looking in through a frosty window, I felt like it not written for new comers, the author was preaching to the converted. I decided to give up as after 10 percent and that is very annoying, I still don't know anything new about Shiva, the mortal man or the Hindu god or avatar etc or who his enemies are or what both sides were doing.
I had to stop, don't feel like going back, I have already bought the book twice and returned it as it didn't make much sense of it at all.
Some needs to write a prequel to the story, because the story didn't make much sense but there were some decent action scenes but obviously Shiva wins, every time.
Fascinating book , good spin on hindu mythology and one really good twist ...I did not see that coming !
Look forward to reading Book No. 3
