The second book in the Shiva trilogy by Amish Tripathi starts exactly where it’s prequel Immortals of Meluha ended.
This series logically and realistically explains all the feats and fables that have supernatural elements in the Indian mythology and it does so with great panache. Lord Shiva is on his quest to end evil and the path is somehow leading him to the Nagas. The deformed and condemned tribe of the Nagas, on the other hand, have secrets and reasons of their own.
The descriptive narrative style takes the reader to Ancient India as the author slowly and steadily reveals truths behind customs and rituals modern Indians follow without questioning their origin or reason.
It is evident that the author has done immense amounts of research before taking on this humongous task of turning the story of a God into the story of a very honourable man. A very addictive read.
Overall Rating: 8.5/10
Ridhu is a writer, karaoke singer and a Potterhead. She believes in magic and miracles. A traveller and a student, she is always trying out new things to learn and is currently learning tarot card reading. As a television junkie, she doesn’t leave any episode of any american drama or comedy that you could think of. A punk in the garb of a nerd, Ridhu loves tattoos and technology alike and definitely looks at the world through pink tinted glasses.
