The Secret Of the Nagas
The Secret Of the Nagas by Amish Tripathi
Today, He is a God.
4000 years ago, He was just a man.
The hunt is on. The sinister Naga warrior has killed his
friend Brahaspati and now stalks his wife Sati. Shiva, the
Tibetan immigrant who is the prophesied destroyer of
evil, will not rest till he finds his demonic adversary. His
vengeance and the path to evil will lead him to the door
of the Nagas, the serpent people. Of that he is certain.
The evidence of the malevolent rise of evil is
everywhere. A kingdom is dying as it is held to ransom
for a miracle drug. A crown prince is murdered. The
Vasudevs - Shiva's philosopher guides - betray his
unquestioning faith as they take the aid of the dark
side. Even the perfect empire, Meluha is riddled with a
terrible secret in Maika, the city of births. Unknown to
Shiva, a master puppeteer is playing a grand game.
In a journey that will take him across the length and
breadth of ancient India, Shiva searches for the truth in
a land of deadly mysteries - only to find that nothing is
what it seems.
Fierce battles will be fought. Surprising alliances will
be forged. Unbelievable secrets will be revealed in this
second book of the Shiva Trilogy, the sequel to the #1
national bestseller, The Immortals of Meluha.
The House by Danielle Steel
Sarah Anderson, a beautiful, successful thirty something attorney, is having a midlife crisis. She's become a workaholic, spending 60- to 70-hour weeks at the office, and she is involved in an unhappy relationship with a man she only sees on weekends, who refuses to involve her in any other aspect of his life. She lives in a dumpy apartment, which contains the same furniture she used in college, and she has no outside interests other than the sometime boyfriend and her job. Everything changes, however, when an eccentric, elderly client of Sarah's dies and leaves her a small fortune and a message: to use the money for something wonderful, to live well, and to think about something other than work. Following this advice, Sarah purchases the dilapidated old mansion the client had lived in (after finding out that it was her own grandfather who originally built it), breaks up with the cheating boyfriend, and focuses all of her attention on rehabbing the old house. As she works to restore the place, she finds contentment in her new pastime; a nice, normal boyfriend in the architect who is helping her; and familial contentment as both her mother and grandmother find happiness in the purchase of this house.
