After reading the first two books of Shiva Trilogy- The Immortals of Meluha and The Secrets of Nagas, my expectations from The Oath of the Vayuputras was sky high. I was expecting some high drama, some great book but unfortunately nothing as such happened.
The book was not much of the fun to read. Very long unnecessary description of Panchwati, Pariha and few other places were boring to read. They were also not as good as the description of the first book. Also war details were tiring to read.
The Secrets of Naga saw the rise of Sati and The Oath of Vayuputras saw the fall of Sati. What was the best thing in the book and sadly which will leave the readers bleeding in agony would be Sati’s encounter with the Egypt assassins who murders Sati brutally.
After that the whole book goes haywire. Honestly, half the way to book I didn’t feel like reading any more. But still you have to read it. The reason is that all the questions and doubts which were raised in the first two book gets their answers in the third book. You are obligated to read the book.
Amish could have continued with the Shiva series. By introducing Parvati in the next book. But alas it was sad ending of the Shiva and Sati love story. But at the end Amish did give a hint to come up with his own interpretation of Mahabharata the epic.
