Description


The Immortals Of Meluha is a thrilling story about a warrior named Shiva, who is given the responsibility to protect the empire of Meluha from dangerous intruders. This mythological novel is fast-paced, and focuses on duty, love, principles and more.
Summary Of The Book
The land of Meluha is an empire created by Lord Rama, and it is ruled by the Suryavanshis. This empire is powerful and proud, however, the Saraswati river that is their source of water is slowing drying up. On top of that, the empire is at war with the Chandravanshis who have allied with The Nagas, a group of sinister and deformed human beings who have extraordinary martial art skills.
The Immortals Of Meluha, published in 2010, is the first story of the trilogy. Daksha, the king of the Suryavanshis, realizes that his empire needs help. He invites a tribe from Tibet to help him fight off the enemies. The Tibetan Guna tribe is lead by Shiva, who is a fearless soldier, and the only one who does not fall ill on arriving at Meluha. To everyone's surprise, Shiva's throat turns blue.
The locals believe that this warrior is their fabled saviour Lord Shiva, also known as Neelkanth. Shiva goes to Devagiri to meet Daksha and his daughter Princess Sati. There, he learns about the dangerous wars and terror attacks that the Chandravanshis have carried out on the Meluhans.
The brave warrior gets enraged, and declares a full war on the enemy. Readers will find this mythological fantasy to be gripping and exciting. Questions about Shiva's duty, destiny, and karma arise throughout the book. The author has written a book that is adventurous, mystifying, and captivating, but at the same time he also has thrown light onto the subjects of what is evil, and who is truly a hero.
This page-turner is a treat for readers who enjoy history, fantasy, and adventure. The Immortals Of Meluha received good reviews from leading newspapers, and was a bestseller within its first week of release.

A great piece of art...

Ever wondered how the Gods would have behaved had they been human beings? Grab a copy of Shiva Trilogy. The Immortals of Meluha, the first of Shiva Trilogy, is an extremely well written story about a man, a human being, called Shiva. A story put together after a thorough study of scriptures and mythology. A story of love between Shiva and Sati, The Immortals of Meluha, is a perfect example of how logic and common sense help in formation of rules. There are minor hiccups of grammatical errors but the story is engaging enough to make one overlook them and read-on. One should read it not just for the quality of story that it tells but also for the inspiring connection it forms with history and the modern day society.

nice one from a desi author

Nice concept, well written and some daring ideas- they very well summarise this book. The language is simple and lucid. You get a feeling like you are reading a comic. This is not a history book, some of the ideas are really daring and cannot stand the scrutiny of penetrating historians. I, especially liked the idea of the meaning of "Har Har Mahadev". In short, I think the book is immensely readable and the writer can really go a long way. BUT, I would like to suggest something to Amish. By writing a trilogy, I hope he knows what he's doing. A new writer, his first book.....and incomplete. Asking your readers to keep waiting for the next episode----isn't it a bit too much to ask for, Mr. Amish. So I suggest the next book be complete in itself. The trilogy can very well be in sequels rather than episodes. Good luck!

Poor paper quality

A big compromise on paper quality. Books are bought for lifetime and publishers should give utmost importance to the quality of the paper. I doubt if it would last for more than two reads. Cover page is attractive but very thin. Disappointed overall withh the book's quality.

different vision on shiva

a very different way of looking at mythology of shiva. lots of logical explanations to the events in shiva's life. in a way it's interesting to visualize shiva's life in our world.

Om Namah Shivaay!

Honestly I do not read much of Indian authors but I bought it only to checkout the hype that was around it. I must confess it's a good book. Lord Shiva is easily the most fascinating of all the Hindu Gods. The author Amish Tripathi, took a lot of liberty in presenting the "Vedic" India which I being great a fan of "Hindu" mythology found a bit weird however the book does take you to a great adventure. The book also presents an alternative reality of the caste system and introduces the concept of "mayaka" which I found a bit odd.
