The Oath of the Vayuputras by Amish

The Oath of the Vayuputras


Sarah Broadhurst's view...

The final book in the Shiva trilogy so make sure to read The Immortals of Meluha and The Secret of Nagas first. Amish is a literary superstar in India with almost 2 million copies of his books in print. This series focus on Shiva the man, who became a god, and is a fascinating weaving of an exciting fantasy adventure with spiritual messages about the power of good and evil which has drawn allusions with Tolkein. A slightly weaker book than the first two in the series it is nevertheless a gripping climax to a fascinating story.

Who is Sarah Broadhurst


The Oath of the Vayuputras by Amish

Today, Shiva is a god. But four thousand years ago, he was just a man - until he brought his people to Meluha, a near-perfect empire founded by the great king Lord Ram. There he discovered he was the Neelkanth, a barbarian long prophesied to be Meluha's saviour. But in his hour of victory fighting the Chandravanshis - Meluha's enemy - he discovered they had their own prophecy. Now he must fight to uncover the treachery within his inner circle, and unmask those who are about to destroy all that he has fought for. Shiva is about to learn that good and evil are two sides of the same coin...
