’The Shiva Trilogy Collector’s Edition’ is a complete set of Shiva Trilogy written by Amish Tripathi. This book trilogy is one of the most widely read contemporary Indian novels and has become one of the fastest selling book series in the Indian publishing history with more than 2.5 million copies sold. This book series includes the books: ‘The Immortals of Meluha’, ‘The Secret of the Nagas’ and ‘The Oath of the Vayuputras’. This book collection is published by Westland Publications
The first book in the trilogy is ‘The Immortals of Meluha’ which introduces readers to the character of Shiva. Although Shiva is considered to be a god according to the Hindu mythology, this book tries to fit him as a historical character. The book describes Shiva as a very strong, courageous and powerful warrior from the land of Tibet and is the chief of the tribe Gunas. The current rulers are Suryavanshi who are in constant war with Chandravanshis. He is asked by the Daksha, the king of Meluha which is an empire created by Lord Ram to help him in their fight against Chandravanshis. Shiva joins the side only to realize later that he may have made the wrong choice. The second novel ‘The Secret of the Nagas’ reveals the truth of the Naga tribes and this is where the story takes a turn and Shiva realizes that he is on the wrong road. The last and the final book of the series, ‘The Oath of the Vayuputras’ provides the ideal end to this saga with a stunning climax that showcases the might and courage of Shiva.
