In what is being touted as the biggest advance paid to an Indian author by a home-grown publishing house, Westland has given Amish Tripathi, author of the Shiva trilogy, Rs 5 crore — close to $1 million — as an advance for his next series.
With five lakh copies of his mythological fantasy ‘The Oath of the Vayuputras’ sold within a day of its release earlier this week, Amish has become the new “literary popstar” as Shekhar Kapur described him. Westland, which published the trilogy, is paying up the big fat advance even though the writer hasn’t decided what his next book will be about.

Have read it already. All the 3 books.
Very LOTR-ish. mix of mythology, Philosophy & Adventure.

Instead of potraying Shiva as a God, he is shown as a normal human being. which is more entertaining than the mythology.
Al l3 are good books. Especially the 1st one - The immortals of Meluha. :tu:
Have them as epub on my laptop and mobile.
