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, that [...]
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 view spoiler And [...]
The second novel in Amish s Shiva Trilogy series and it steals the show by revealing the most shocking yet pleasant tight lipped remains of The Immortals Of Meluha _ _As I already mentioned, this book is strictly not for those who believe in Lord Ram s ways of ruling, saivism or Shiva Puran and that intrigued me to proceed with the sequel.And it did not disappoint me, not even a bit of it Shiva seeks justice for the death of his friend Brihaspathi, and as fate unfolds, he travels to Panchavati, [...]
YUCKS really did I read it I meanriously This book had been at the top of the list by The Telegraphd I can t believe Telegraph would recommend us to read such a crappy bookt only Telegrapheven one of my friends recommended me this bookI couldn t even read further than 100pagese story matter suckse language suckse writing style sucksnse of humor zero felt like I was reading a book written by a sixth grade studente only thing I get this from the book is how Shiva travels over the India and people [...]
I still maintain that this book is a great concept Taking an Indian God like Shiva with multiple facets to his persona and coming up with such an elaborate tale takes a different kind of imagination Having grown up hearing stories about Gods like Shiva, Vishnu, Rama, Krishna etc curiosity was the one thing that drew me towards the first book in the series But the curious thing about this book is that even though you want to be surprised and confronted with out of the world conspiracy theories wi [...]
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 wonderfulI felt mythology come alive all around me There are many books which use the greek and roman mythology in their plotsI am glad that Mr Amish has decided to explore our Hindu mythol [...]
2.5 The opposite of love is not hate Hate is just love gone bad The actual opposite of love is apathy And that pretty much sums up my feelings for this book not love, not hate Just apathy.It hurts me that I cannot give this book a better rating All things considered, The Secret of the Nagas deserves at least a three, for the sheer ingenuity of its concept But my ratings are always based on how intensely a book affects me, and as frustrating as it is to admit, this book did not affect me in any w [...]
Actually 4.5 stars.Finally the book is out For past one year we and here I can talk about four of us have been waiting for the release of this book Checking every month and then on a weekly basis Its one of the firsts in Mythological fiction in India based on God Shiva For me Shiva is probably the most maverick of the Trimurti of Gods Brahma, Vishnu Mahesh birth, life death and comes across as someone so un God like He is not saintly or perfect, he does not follow rules, his anger is earth shaki [...]
I like how the story s been developed in this book I found some things predictable, but am not complaining about those in any way Very well written Again, I couldn t put the book down till I was finished reading it In some ways, the predictability is because of the fact that, once you re about a third into the book, it hits you that Amish has found this really cool way of retelling tales from Indian mythology through an engaging, witty and insightful set of stories You realise that you already k [...]
The one reason, I read through the series, though incomplete, is the very serious romanticized take on a mythological figure Shiva, one of the most masculine, virile men in Hindu mythology provides the perfect hero to this epical narrative The story isn t very great, but is saved by the very magnificent characterization of Shiva The only thing you, as reader, wants is to see him happily married to Sati, playing the hero, and fighting the bad guys A major glitch I feel this book has is the very c [...]
in spite of not being enad with the first book, i read the secret of nagas just to satisfy my curiosity of how the author managed to progress the plot in the book 2 of the trilogy to cut a long story short, im disappointed in the first book i could see glimpses of screenplay ish writing and in this one im convinced that this series was written for a movie maybe even with john Abraham as Shiva no character in this book is completely evolved, including that of Shiva as a result, there is no one ch [...]
What a franchise Though this is not very gripping like the first edition i thoroughly enjoyed reading this books As i have said in my review for the first part that one should remove from his mind that shiva is god and proceed reading, then one can enjoy the book Author has to be appreciated for coming up with such a brilliant idea and i bow before his thought of fiction blended mythology At many places i felt like my hand was trembling with excitement The starting chapters were not soo interest [...]
Well Bose and I couldn t resist getting the sequel to The Immortals of Meluha The first book ended abruptly in midst of a battle which was a clever strategy deployed by the author But this sequel was worth a shot.The Shiva Trilogy 2 The Secret of The Nagas came with a expanded map of India showing us the territory of the evil Nagas.Rarely one comes across a sequel better than its predecessor And this book can be surely counted as one of them Every line of the book catapaults into opening a new s [...]
The second book The Secret of the Nagas follows The Immortals of Meluha the first book in the Shiva Trilogy series A brilliant sequel to the first novel of the Shiva Trilogy I could not have asked for Amish has done a wonderful job to bring out this fast paced and action packed thrilling ride complete with drama, action, devotion, loyalty, philosophy, spirituality and vengeance spiced up with romance, conspiracy and deception It took the epic to a new level Every character in the book catches o [...]
Last night, at 10 30, just before my weary head hit the pillow, I felt the need to read, or at least start reading a book It s nothing unusual, and I m sure that bibliophiles would be thoroughly acquainted with the feeling, and it s consequences Although the first book in the Shiva trilogy had ended in quite a cliffhanger, I had refrained from diving into the second book until then But for some reason, last night I picked up that one It was 02 30 in the morning when the book was finished I switc [...]
Loved it A fitting sequel to the immortals of meluha and similar to that one, even this part is stopped at a very crucial juncture, to those who have the bad habit of reading the last page of a novel first, do not do so with this one Coming to the story, nothing much that i can talk about it without spoiling the experience for those who are yet to read it This book eases down on the action a bit and has of those interesting conversations with the Vasudevs Pandits There were a lot of new charact [...]
I liked the first book of the trilogy, Immortals of Meluha, mostly because it was a fun read It was interesting to see how Tripathi brought in Nandi, Veerbadra and other mythological characters to life Hence I pre ordered this book.It was a disappointment Shiva, from being a man confused of his destiny in the first book, becomes an all powerful superhero, almost like Captain Vijayakanth He never gets hurt, none of his followers get hurt or killed except for one janakaraj like character , nobody [...]
the book is dissapointing to say the least,,, the author is in too hurry to declare his character as great,, there plans as marvellous and there actions as something of legendary,, what he lacks is writing,, either he believes that reader to too busy to read the character buildup, or he believes reader would be idiot enough to accept any structure to be divine just because author say it soans what is point of writing it if u not bother to describe it to the full details,,, one of the main strong [...]
Buku ini adalah kisah fantasi yang lengkap Petualangan ada, mitologi banyak, pertempurannya cukup menegangkan, mengajak merenung juga iya Lebih dari itu semua, lewat Siwa, penulis mengajak pembaca untuk memandang orang lain tidak dari fisik atau status mereka Jika kita mau mencoba memahami, selalu ada alasan di balik setiap perilaku buruk maupun baik Siwa yang Mahadewa saja menghormati setiap orang baru yang dijumpainya, masak kita yang alay gini kok sok suci dan sok benar sendiri Kisah lengkap [...]
Three and a half stars again As in the first instalment, it is the plot and the pace that keep one completely engrossed, one wants to keep reading on to see what happens The plot is very exciting, imaginative, and interesting But my complaint with the language in the first book continues in this one it just seems unsuited to the setting and the time not quite right Of course, this isn t stopping me from moving on to the final instalment review date 10 May 2014
Finally I picked up this much awaited sequel to the book The Immortals of Meluha and, boy, I wasn t disappointed The sequel arrived after I had almost forgotten the plot of its predecessor, but the thrill and adventure, as well as the unique plotline made it all rush back into my brain s core.The book begins where the previous installment ends Shiva and Sati chasing their assailant The adventure that starts at the first page, ends only in the last page, with adrenaline oozing out of every page, [...]
Part 2 of the Shiva Trilogy Shiva continues his journey from Meluha into Swadeep, after managing to broker a peaceful arrangement between the Suryavanshis and Chandravanshis He then shifts his focus to what he considers a common threat, and a fount of evil the Nagas His search for the Nagas takes him into the Chandravanshi kingdoms and brings him in touch with various populaces who have ties with the Nagas As the book progresses, events force Shiva to reconsider his belief in the Vasudevs as wel [...]
The second Novel of Amish Tripathi This is a very serious romanticized take on a mythological figure.Shiva the god of god, a virile man in Hindu mythology provides the perfect hero to this epical narrative At last shiva married to Sati, this is only matters to read this book mythology provides the perfect hero to this epical narrative.

this was a good book to read during free timeThough some chapters seemed out of the flow but nearing the end,it all starts to connect.If one thinks that this book is the end and there is nothing twisty aheads time to think againe oath of vayuputras is gar beyond what you expect.even though its fatter than others and has way too many chapters but I hope its worth a readFrankly,the immortals of Meluhas was captivating than the secret of the nagas for me.
Stuffed with thrill, adventure and action, the sequel takes you deeper in the Shiva trilogy that gets better and better The Secrets of the Nagas are really intriguing and give you than what you re seeking.
As good as or rather even better than the first part recommended for all hindus Discover the actual facts actually fantasy in Hindu mythology
Now this one was better than 1 The last chapter for me was a bit of an anticlimax since I knew it would go this way all along But the new characters spoiler alert of Ganesha and Kali were a great spin on traditional myth This is a well imagined universe with mostly palatable ingredients Naming the Branga Bengali character Bappiraj was slightly cheesy The character s plump figure and fascination with gold jewelry didn t help much either Good stuff all in all.
