    That is what the plan is, if I like the first one, I'll buy the 3 in hard copies. I like collecting good books that can be read again later on.

    An excellent series from what I have heard from fellow readers, will read it once I am done with the 'A Song of Ice and Fire' series.

    Just a friendly suggestion, please don't think of the religion and that stuff..

    think of the characters as they are being built..
    So you will enjoy more, as you are already on 50 then Shiva is already in famed Meluha ;)

    Finished Book 1. Great premise, Great concept. Really takes some guts to integrate everything mythological into a believable story.

    A lot of people are going to be debating over the truth and the fiction bits.. But Great job by Amish, keeping it clear, else there could have been a lot of controversy over this.

    Already halfway thru Book 2. :D

    one third of the way thru the third one. Very very interesting character build up and and physical characteristic reasoning. He does make it all so believable!

    Om Namah Shivay! Har Har Mahadev!

    Finally finished the books today. And one word. Superb! Simply Simply superb!

    After ages am reading something that moves you from inside, and really forces you into the story. Even though it may be fiction, the way everything weaves in to mesh so well with each other, it forces you to sit and wonder, what if it was actually as what the story says. Damn!

    Great job by the Author Amish. Kudos and a standing ovation!

    Not buying? He is an independent artist so I think support him directly is a good idea.
    I used to buy bundles of Raj comics just to support the comics.
