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.
