There was Enoch.
“Enoch walked with God, and he was not, for God took him.” That’s all the ancient book of Genesis tells us about this enigmatic holy man of the primordial generation. The ancient Book of Enochtells us that he pronounced judgment on the fallen Watchers and their giant progeny, the Nephilim of Genesis chapter 6. But what if that holy calling meant that Enoch was a giant killer?
This second novel in the saga Chronicles of the Nephilim is a prequel to Noah Primeval that tells the story of the Fall of the Watchers from heaven and the rise of the Nephilim generations before the Flood. Follow the epic journey of Enoch the giant killer with his small band of family warriors who seek outlaw giants for bounty, but stumble upon a conspiracy of the Watchers that is so evil, it will change the universe forever if God does not stop them. You’ll meet some of the beloved characters from Noah Primevalwhen they were much younger, like Methuselah and Uriel, as well as the origin stories of the lead Watchers, Semjaza and Azazel who became the gods Anu and Inanna.
An appendix provides some of the fascinating Biblical and ancient Near Eastern research behind the mythopoeia in the novel.
Chronicles of the Nephilim is written in the mythic genre of The Lord of the Rings and Narnia, blending fantasy and mythopoeia with history to retell the Biblical narrative with a fresh perspective, while staying true to the original spirit of the story.
