We have confirmation of the latest update regarding the release date of the 3rd Book in the Shiva Trilogy, The Oath of the Vayuputras!

Update as of 20th August, 2012:
On his official Twitter account, Amish has reconfirmed that the 3rd book in the Shiva Trilogy is due for an end 2012 release!
Update: Amish has tentatively confirmed the expected release date for The Oath of the Vayuputras to be somewhere around December 2012. Read the end of the post to know the exact details!
When Amish Tripathi came out with the first 2 parts of the Shiva Trilogy, namely The Immortals of Meluha (Read Review Here) and The Secret of the Nagas (Read Review Here), everyone in India, including me, were blown away by the amazing plot and storyline of the novels. His clever mixing of Indian mythology, fact and fiction soon saw his books topping all best-seller charts.
And now, everyone is waiting with bated breath as to the release of the 3rd book in the Shiva Trology, The Oath of the Vayuputras! I must admit that when I finished reading The Secret of the Nagas, all I wanted to do was run out and go grab a copy of The Oath of the Vayuputras. Sadly enough, the book is still not released and I’ll have to wait for some more time to get my hands on this eagerly awaited book.
There are a lot of questions in everyone’s minds such as when is the oath of the vayuputras releasing or what exactly is this oath of the vayuputras that will change Shiva’s destiny? Who exactly are the Vayuputras and whether they are evil or not? A lot of these questions still need to be answered in the 3rd book.
The Oath of the Vayuputras – Release Date
Although Amish has not yet specified a specific date on which The Oath of the Vayuputras will be released but there is a lot of speculation in the media and on internet forums that The Oath of the Vayuputras is likely to be released sometime by the end of 2012! (pre-orders have now started)
Yes, that’s the likely release date of this book. If one goes by pure logic, then The Immortals of Meluha was released in February 2010. The sequel to that, The Secret of the Nagas, was released in August 2011 which means that there was a gap of almost 18 months between the 2 books.
If this trend is followed, then according to me, the 3rd book in the Shiva Trilogy, The Oath of the Vayuputras, should be released sometime by December 2012. Although this is pure speculation on my part but it’s an intelligent guess nonetheless.
