The Secret of the Nagas

My Review - 

After realizing the truth that Chandravanshis were not evil, protagonist Shiva realized that he made a mistake by declaring war in the first book, The Immortals of Meluha. The second book in the Shiva Trilogy reveals the face of actual darkness. 

Amish Tripathi's Secret of the Nagas portrays Naga's perspective, questionably affecting Sati and Shiva's lives. An angry Shiva wants to kill the Naga to avenge Brahaspati's murder. The Naga Queen and the Lord of the People finally confront Sati, which raises the question of emperor Daksha's justice and principle. Sati and Daksha's relationship comes on a strange terms. 

With the help of Nandi, Veerbhadra, Parvateshwar, and Prince Bhagirath, Shiva finds a way to Panchvati (Nagas city), but first, they need to aid Brangaridai's monarch, which is considerably challenging. To discover a distinct way, Shiva's path was crisscrossed with a bandit, Parshuram. He believes in Neelkanth's myth and presents a new prospect for Nagas. 

The role of Vasudev Pandit has become more mysterious. Shiva and Sati are blessed with a boy, but his life is saved twice by those considered evil. I enjoyed the way Parvateshwar and Anandmayi's story unfolded. It questions old age vows and principles. Between all the secrets and hiding, a new puppeteer emerges, Bhrigu. He has some hidden agendas, which will be discovered in the last book, The Oath of the Vayuputras

The thing I like most about Amish's writing is the narration style. I felt a lack of suspense in the first book, but it is in abundance in this book. I hope that it will continue in the next book as well. If you enjoyed the first book in the series, you're definitely gonna love this one.
