Today, He is a God. 4000 years ago, He was just a man. The hunt is on. The sinister Naga warrior has killed his friend Brahaspati and now stalks his wife Sati. Shiva, the Tibetan immigrant who is the prophesied destroyer of evil, will not rest till he finds his demonic adversary. His vengeance and the path to evil will lead him to the door of the Nagas, the serpent people. Of that he is certain. The evidence of the malevolent rise of evil is everywhere. A kingdom is dying as it is held to ransom for a miracle drug. A crown prince is murdered. The Vasudevs Shivas philosopher guides betray his unquestioning faith as they take the aid of the dark side. Even the perfect empire, Meluha is riddled with a terrible secret in Maika, the city of births. 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 only to find that nothing is what it seems. Fierce battles will be fought. Surprising alliances will be forged. Unbelievable secrets will be revealed in this second book of the Shiva Trilogy, the sequel to the #1 national bestseller, The Immortals of Meluha.

    Amazing Read….
    Mr Amish starts with a basic idea of ‘what if our gods were humans, albeit with super strength and long lives, in the past whose history has now become steeped with myths and legends….’ and builds a brilliant story around it.The characters are strong, the plot is well developed and the description is wonderful. It feels like mythology come alive all around us! The language of the novel is very informal.There are many books which use the Greek and roman mythology in their plots. We are glad that Mr. Amish has decided to explore our Hindu mythology as a plot for his book and while maintaining the spiritual aspect and the basic premise of eternal battle of good and evil he has not delved too much into the religious aspect.
