THE SECRET OF THE NAGAS By Amish
The Secret of the Nagas is revealed from the page forth. This is the second book of the
Shiva Trilogy and begins from the moment where its prequel, The Immortals of Meluha,
ended. While I believe that you can enjoy this book by itself, perhaps, you may enjoy it
more if you read The Immortals of Meluha first. In case you have already read The
Immortals of Meluha, please ignore this message.

About The Book
The fabled Neelkanth, Shiva, is faced with his greatest challenge. He is forced onto a path of vengeance where nothing is as it seems, in The Secret of The Nagas (Shiva Trilogy). The hunt is on for a mysterious naga assailant who has taken the life of one of Shiva’s close associates and now preys on his wife. This thirst for revenge will bring him face to face with the truth behind the mysterious nagas.
The nagas are a deformed race of warriors with exceptional fighting skills, whose motives are hidden. They play a central role in a conspiracy that has brought a once mighty kingdom to its knees. And if Shiva is to break the deadlock, he must travel deep into hostile territory, where he will face a deadly adversary.
At Kashi, Shiva’s wife, Sati, who has recently given birth to their child, stays behind to help the King with an entirely different kind of battle. As Shiva’s journey takes him away from her, she will uncover a secret that will change both their lives forever. Will Shiva and Sati’s marriage survive when the line between friend and foe becomes blurred?
With a plot that picks up right where the previous book left off, The Secret of The Nagas (Shiva Trilogy) takes you on an exciting roller coaster ride through this epic re-imagination of Indian mythology. The book was published in 2012 in paperback.
