It's 1900 BC. The once-proud Suryavanshi rulers of the Meluha Empire are in dire peril. The empire's primary river, the Saraswathi, is slowly drying up. There are devastating terrorist attacks from the east, the land of the Chandravanshis - and, to make matters worse, the Chandravanshis appear to have allied with the Nagas, an ostracised race of deformed humans with astonishing martial skills.
The hunt is on. Shiva, the man believed to be the prophesied Neelkanth - the destroyer of evil - will not rest until he finds his demonic adversary: the Naga warrior that killed his closest friend and now stalks his wife. But the rise of evil is everywhere, and Shiva's own philosopher guides have betrayed his unquestioning faith by accepting aid from the dark side.
1900 BC, in what modern Indians call the Indus Valley Civilization and the inhabitants called the land of Meluha: a near-perfect empire created many centuries earlier by Lord Ram - one of the greatest monarchs that ever lived - faces peril as its primary river, the Saraswati, is slowly drying to extinction. The Suryavanshi rulers are challenged with devastating terrorist attacks from the east, the land of the Chandravanshis.
"An engaging story with a dramatic end"
Today, Shiva is a god. But 4,000 years ago, he was just a man - until he brought his people to Meluha, a near-perfect empire founded by the great king Lord Ram. There he discovered he was the Neelkanth, a barbarian long prophesied to be Meluha's saviour. But in his hour of victory fighting the Chandravanshis - Meluha's enemy - he discovered they had their own prophecy. Now he must fight to uncover the treachery within his inner circle and unmask those who are about to destroy all that he has fought for.
"Loved the book, hated the narrator..."
The Oath of the Vayuputras is the final audiobook of the Shiva Trilogy. In the earlier audiobooks of the trilogy, Shiva finds out that the Nagas are not his enemies and joins hands with them to reach the root of all evil. This audiobook will have answers to the Neelkanth's questions about his fate, the choices he made previously, and karma. Further, in the concluding book of the trilogy, Shiva reaches Panchavati, the capital of Naga, where he will come face to face with his greatest enemy.
"Good Series overall"
