The Secret of the Nagas is the second part in the critically acclaimed Shiva Trilogy written by the Indian author, Amish. The first part, The Immortals of Meluha, was first published in 2010 and instantly became a runaway success. Amish is now back with the second part of this mythical trilogy, releasing in mid August, hoping to repeat the same magical performance once again.

The 1st part ended with Sati being kidnapped by the Naga warrior and this is from where The Secret of the Nagas will begin its journey. Shiva will also need to avenge the killing of his friend and this will form the major backbone of the book along with the rescue of Sati from the evil clutches of the Naga clan.

Once again, the author will use the interspersing of history and mythology to create a spell-binding tale of love, lies and deceit. Will we see the Suryavanshi and the Chandravanshi clans unite to fight a common enemy or will it be the triumph of evil over good?

Shiva, meanwhile, will continue his journey and his destiny of becoming the Mahadev, the lord of all lords, and Amish will try and portray his main character in a much stronger light. All the doubts that Shiva has in his mind and all his unanswered questions will hopefully be answered as he answers destiny’s call.

Just like the 1st book in the series, the author will have a few aces up his sleeve while doing promotional activity around the book before its release. The cover of the book is already out and has become a hit in online forums with people loving its creativity. Also, the use of another trailer film like last time cannot be ruled out as well.

Some critics hit out at Amish during the release of his first book by claiming the language to be not up to the mark of a good writer. This time, I’m sure, Amish will have gone an extra mile to prove all his detractors wrong. There is going to be the introduction of some more new characters in The Secret of the Nagas who will bring alive the book.

The hype and publicity around The Secret of the Nagas is already at such a pace that it is expected to become a best-seller post its launch. As of now, the book is not available at bookstores and will only release in mid-August. However, for all those impatient folks out there, you can pre-order the book online through online retailers like Flipkart.
