A satisfying ending to a great saga
Let me be honest. When I heard that Amish was writing his third and final novel to the Shiva Trilogy, I was kinda relieved. Thinking that we would finally get some closure to Shiva’s life, I greedily picked up the book and went through with it. Now as I have turned the final page of India’s most successful series in recent times, I sincerely wish it had gone on just a bit longer.
The first 200 pages or so were quite boring and honest to God, I was planning to shut this book and place it in an already overcrowded bookshelf in a section I have called I wish I hadn’t. Had this been a single book with no books before or after it, I would have done so without a second thought. But, due to the fun I had reading the previous novels, I knew I just had to get through with it, just hoping for the best. And so, I went on.
And, I haven’t regretted doing so one bit, the story actually picked up, the moment I thought it had become bland and I was hooked. Lots of emotion, drama, action, war etc filled the 300+ pages. Saying any further will only act as a spoiler since there are a lot of twists and turns each linked to each other in some way or another.
Amish has definitely done a great job bringing closure to all the major characters in the trilogy. Couldn’t have asked for anything less or anything more.
I would definitely love for Amish to continue writing such novels and entertaining us all the more. Amish, Best of Luck in advance for your future works, if any.

“The oath of the vayuputras” can be termed as the best and the most probable conclusion for this epic series. Author was successful in blending his fiction with the mythology. All the characters were narrated with a great precision and the sub plots, though a fictitious work, were very close to the actual legend. This requires a thorough research and extreme intelligence to present together.
Speaking about this concluding book, Amish was successful in deciphering all the loose ends and leaving some to the imagination of the reader. Certain chapters in the book suddenly make your eyes go wide and say “Wooow!!” The narration was very shrewd and the language was as pure as the intentions of the author. The pace of the narration will make your eyes and fingers run across the pages and u never know where u landed but still connected with the plot.
The description of a few places and action sequences will be beyond any reader’s wild imaginations. There were times when I felt “is this what I know or is it the author’s version”, but still it didn’t stop me from going ahead. Every single chapter grabs your attention and every single page makes your eyes glued to itself. I am completely satisfied with the way things went and no complaints. To summon in one phrase I can say that this book is “ABOVE AMAZING”.
Shiva trilogy can be named as the best literature ever, modern India has witnessed. Amish must be a very brave and a genius person for choosing a mythological fiction for his work. Amish jii, u wrote an epic.
I can proudly say that he has got the intelligence of JK Rowling and the vision of JRR Tolkien. Hence I have no qualms to rate Shiva Trilogy equally competent or slightly higher than “Lord of The Rings” trilogy and “Harry Potter” in terms of almost everything.
Thrilling, tragic and heart-breaking are the three key-words that sum up my review even before it starts.
The Oath of the Vayuputras is the Final book of The Shiva Triology written by a now improved writer Amish Tripathi. His writing style has been abysmally poor in the first two books, but he picks up the art by this book. Yet, his lack of ability to smooth out his story stays visible.
He struggles to describe the events as they happen in a better format than what he’d used in the past pages. His introduction to characters is still blunt and the way they behave is easily predictable.
The story, though, as always, is brilliant. There are twists and turns that one can’t see coming, unless one is learned on these subjects. I loved the way Amish built up the story to reach the crescendo. And the way he achieved it!
There are parts that will make you immensely sad, and parts that will break your heart and Amish provides no palliative care for the injuries, but I think he had no choice there. The story had to proceed the way it did.
The book is perfumed with war, death and hope. And a lot of knowledge!
In conclusion, I’ll recommend this book for all the Indians who believe, or not in Lord Shiva for this is a fiction that will render a magical faith in your new favorite hero!
I enjoyed reading this book, and I think everyone else will too!
i cried and i cried……….i loved it.glimpses of love that shiva and sati shared, the anger and hatred that i generated against daksha and the loss that lord shiva had to embrace was hardcore painful.i fell in love with shiva, his entire charisma and beliefs since the very first day i read meluha, thereafter nagas and now the oath of vayuputras. In all amish is an avid bhakt and at the end of the day i have turned into an avid bhakt..thank u amish for enlightening me with his strong significance in my life.
Amish has maintained the flow..the same amount of excitement, drama, action and most importantly the story line. Fantastically written and wonderfully woven with facts and myths that difficult not to appreciate it. What I most enjoyed were the discussions between Lord Gopal and Shiva. They were very simple yet held a lot of meaning. The discourses were logical and rational. The introduction of the Vayuputras and their connection to the story is so beautifully done. The whole scene looks so real and plausible. Evil has been explained in such a novel manner that it did not look scary or overwhelming, just something too obvious which no one noticed. Am in awe of Sati..she is what a woman should be..could be..if the man allows her to be herself. Daksha is the perfect caricature of the present day rulers..absolutely self involved and selfish, to the extent that they consider the others around them as totally insignificant. Loved the book. Loved the narration.
