The oath of the Vayuputras
This is the final part of the trilogy. After reading the first two, like most of the readers I too was waiting with bated breath for the third part. Here the mystery about Shiva’s identity are revealed along with the ultimate cause of evil. The book began with where it had ended in part two.
Shiva found his long lost friend Brihaspati, who informed him about the ultimate evil, Somras. Shiva realizes the purpose of his life and decides to fulfill it. But there are many people who support evil. Moreover most of the kingdoms are divided. He sets forward towards uniting them in his fight. He is supported by his wife Sati, sons Ganesh and karthik along with a lot of people. Most of the suspense of previous books have been revealed here, like the history of Vasudevs and Vayuputras. The reader comes to know about the greatness of his uncle. The efforts used to create an entire army have been described beautifully.
The war strategies have been described in detail in the book. The image on the cover clearly indicates war in the story. All this has made the book really long. This leads to the user losing interest in between. Although the evil is destroyed, yet the story ends on a sad note. It is a good read if you are going for a long vacation. I would not suggest taking it on a long journey as the detailed descriptions may lead to loss of interest. If you have read the first two, then there is no way you cannot read this.
