The sequel to the ‘The Immortals of Meluhas‘, this book takes the story of Shiva a little further. With the title and responsibilities of a hero being thrust on him, Shiva goes out and tries to fulfill his dharma. As a story, it is full of twists and turns. But even as you enjoy the surprise elements, the underlying message gets clear.
There is nothing that can be called pure good or pure evil in this world. All this is just a word play, thanks to different perspectives. And also, unconditional acceptance is what true love is all about…
I liked the book… Not for its language (which is rather stale at certain places), or flow of the story (sluggish at times). But for its ability to invoke certain old memories when I have been unfair and unjust towards others.
I give it 2.5 out of 5 stars.
