Today, Shiva is a god. But four thousand years ago, he was just a man. 1900 BC: the once-proud Suryavanshi rulers of the Meluha Empire are in dire peril. The empire's primary river, the Saraswati, is slowly drying up. There are devastating terrorist attacks from the east, the land of the Chandravanshis - and to make matters worse, the Chandravanshis appears to have allied with the Nagas, an ostracised race of deformed humans with astonishing martial skills. The only hope for the Suryavanshis is an ancient prophecy: when evil reaches epic proportions and all seems lost, a hero will emerge...

At first I was hesitant to buy the book thinking that it would contain the same unbelievable fictional aspects where the gods can fly and cure the incurable diseases by their touch. I was blown away by the simplicity of the protagonist. He didn't have any powers, instead he had the skill and intelligence which led to his rise to become a Mahadev.
The story is well narrated with twists and turns of comedy, drama, rage and emotions which leaves you hooked till you read the last chapter and then, the other two books. The characters are well developed making you feel their pain and happiness.
This is the first book of “The Shiva Trilogy” by author Amish.
The trilogy’s other two books are”The secret of Nagas” and “The Oath of Vayuputras“
All the three titles has gained a great popularity in India…
The concept of HINDU god “Lord Shiva” also Mahadev as a common Tibetan is catchy…
This book haves 417 pages consisting 26 chapters
This very first book tells about how Shiva (here a common man) is trying to protect Tribe… And what he does to protect them…
All characters are very well crafted and the character of lord shiva is kept very interesting as the lord Shiva is actually described…
Immortals of meluha also describes the journey of shiva and his tribe to The MELUHA which was earlier living near a holy lake (Lake Mansarovar)
The story is very well crafted… The first book unveils the event of
Mysteriously Shiva’s throat turning blue on the consumption of Soma (a drink for long life and good health).
Realisation by citizen of Meluha and their king that Shiva is the chosen one…
meeting with Sati, daughter of the king of Meluha
A Glimpse of Evil
Now in the journey, a feeble assumption of what evil is and who are evil people is made and shiva acts accordingly.
Now the question is what will happen next…
Is the assumption of true evil correct?
Will shiva be able to find what made his throat turn blue?
Will he able to find and remove evil out of equation?
The book is interesting and indulging… The details of narration complements the beautiful story very well.
Various characters are introduced in the first book well, many are told but kept in suspense…
My opinion : if you just read this first book, you won’t feel how good this story is… I liked the way story is woven… You’ll realise several distributed parts connecting when you read the whole series (well you’ll realise by the second part
There is no character development, poor scripting, no historical research has gone into this I can presume since their are facts that don't match with what's written along with others........
Also Lord Shiva is not an angry God but when he will get angry its the end or so say the Purans but Lord Shiva is perpetually angry in this book, vendetta is raging in his veins, revenge is his middle name and for what......
The most off putting thing for me is for Parvati to be described in a sexual way....its too much for me.
Sorry but not sorry, this is not my type of reading and I will not recommend this.
Hats off to Amish Sir for his great research and work.
I love every piece of this book.
I must say,
I started admiring our own roots of Indus valley collectively our Sapta Sindu originated Indian culture more after reading this book.
The Universe bows to Lord Shiva
I bow to Lord Shiva
