About the Book: The Secret of the Nagas
The second of the runaway fantasy hit series telling the fascinating story of Shiva, the man made God by the inhabitants of ancient civilization, Meluha (The Immortals of Meluha is part one).
Today, He is a God; 4000 years ago, He was a mere mortal. And Shiva, the Tibetan immigrant who is the prophesied destroyer of evil, will not stop till he punishes the evil nemesis who has taken the life of someone he loves-and threatens that of another one.
There are great dangers at hand. The sinister Naga warrior he hunts has killed Shiva's friend Brahaspati and now stalks his wife, Sati. And the hunt will necessarily lead him to the door of the Nagas, the martial serpent people.
There are signs, too, of the grand rise of evil everywhere. A kingdom is flailing, held to ransom for a miracle drug. A crown prince is assassinated. Even the Vasudevs, Shiva's philosopher guides, let him down; they succumb and seek assistance from the dark side. Even the realm of that perfect empire, Meluha, is plagued by a horrid secret; in Maika, the city of births, unknown to Shiva, a master puppeteer plays an ominous game.
Travelling across ancient India, Shiva searches for the truth. Great battles are fought, unnatural alliances forged and unbelievable secrets revealed as events unfold.
