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 exctinction. The Suryavanshi rulers are challenged with devastating terrorist attacks from the east, the land of the Chandravanshis. To make matters worse, the Chandravanshis appear to have allied with the Nagas, an ostracized and sinister race of deformed humans with astonishing martial skills. The only hope for the Suryavanshis is an ancient legend: When evil reaches epic proportions, when all seems lost, a hero will emerge. Is the unexpected, rough-hewn Tibetan immigrant Shiva that hero? Drawn suddenly to his destiny, duty, and by love, Shiva will attempt to move mountains and lead the Suryavanshi to destroy evil.

Love the way Shiva is portrayed as a man instead of God and how he is going to be God by his karma. Very well written. Must read!

Good book with a story centered around one of the most revered Gods of the Hindus- Lord Shiva. The book incorporates lots of interesting stories from the Hindu mythology like Shiva's blue throat, Shiva's dancing prowess and beautiful constructs nice, original stories around them.

Good and evil are two sides of the same coin. Shiva, a Tibetian tribal leader has been tasked by Hindu priests to define evil. Though different factions declare the others as evil, Shiva only finds that the different philosophies are merely that, different. He meets a strong and lovely young woman, whose father is a very weak man. A menacing figure watches and occasionally attacks her.
