  1. 3 out of 5

    This book Oath of the Vayuputras takes off from where the previous one ended. The secret that was revealed at the end of the previous book is explained in detail and your suspense is put to an end. During the course of the events, Shiva realizes that there are dangerous enemies among the people he trusted. Shiva also comes to the conclusion that the nectar of immortality Somras has to be destroyed and he has to form alliances with the other kingdoms in order to do this. And to help him, he has the support of the Vasudevs. This is another premise in the series where the concept is that there was no ONE Shiva or Vishnu, but there were many of them. The author’s writing style is neat, entertaining and well paced and he ensures that you don’t feel like putting down the book till you complete it. The story of Shiva is something all Indians know and it has been well depicted with lots of fictional changes which is an element of novelty. As you know the story of Shiva already, don’t think that the events are predictable, because Amish adds twists and turns liberally. There are many characters introduced in the book, who are either not from Indian mythology or who are modified characters, i.e : they are not as portrayed in the original stories. This is another plus point for the novel as things don’t become predictable.
