I've had high hopes from this trilogy ever since the hyped publicity for The Immortals Of Meluha (http://readernaut.com/books...) and that book was plain amazing, making my expectations from book 2 of the trilogy were sky high... and I'm glad to say Secret of the Nagas doesn't disappoint!
The book is fast paced, the story gets better, the characters are well curated... I loved the introduction of the new characters like Kali, Kartik, Parshuram and Ganesh (Especially like Ganesh's introduction)... Good storytelling, a clever plot and lots of action make this book a must read for fans of mythological fiction! The actual "Secret of the Nagas" is not that special (atleast for me...) but the path travelled for them to uncover it is thrilling! The book ends just like Meluha... you'll be begging for the next book by the time you finish this one! :)
Mr. Amish Tripathi, I didn't think you could outdo Meluha but you have proved me conclusively wrong... Please don't disappoint with the finale of the trilogy! I'm already waited with baited breath for it! :)
It gets predictable, but I still love this book for its concepts, research and well-though fusion of fiction and mythology. I'd buy a book from Amish with my eyes closed after reading this. Can't wait for the final book of the Shiva Trilogy to come out.
