Author Amish Tripathi is out with the latest installation of the Shiva trilogy � The Oath of the Vayuputras, which promises to be a thrilling read

The Oath of the Vayupatras is the concluding part in Amish Tripathi’s Shiva trilogy (the other two being The Immortals of Meluha and The Secret of the Nagas).

The latest installation delves on Shiva gathering his forces. While doing so he reaches the Naga capital of Panchavati and Evil is finally revealed. The Neelkanth prepares for a holy war against his true enemy, a man whose name instills dread in the fiercest of warriors. India convulses under the onslaught of a series of brutal battles.

The Oath of the Vayuputras, Westland, R350. Available at all bookstores.

It’s a war where the very soul of the nation is at stake. But Shiva must not fail, no matter what the cost. In his desperation, he reaches out to the ones who have never offered any help to him: the Vayuputras.

“I took a year and a half to write the book; it became very lengthy. While writing the book I enjoy a very spiritual experience as writing about Shiva is great,” says Tripathi.

New characters are introduced in this book, including the Vayuputras, Lord Rudra’s tribe and those whose divinely assigned task is to help the next incarnation of Lord Rudra with his mission.
