As a big fan of the first book in the series "Noah Primeval" I just had to read the second book (which actually happens before the first book). Although well-written and adventurous to the tenth degrees it still has to be understood that this series is not what I would consider Biblical history. The author has fictionalized the real-life Enoch and his family and placed them in a world that most likely was very different then what actually happened. As long as the reader understands this going in then I really believe they will enjoy this book. There is almost no down time between battles and really tough situations making it a top notch page turner. Brian has a wonderful grasp of the English language and uses it create an intelligent story. (I'm glad I read it on the Kindle so I could get instant definitions of some of the less often heard words.) This book is story telling at it's best. When Noah Primeval is made into a blockbuster movie Enoch Primordial will surely follow.

The last 25% of the book consists of the authors explanations of why he wrote what he did and how he came about his Biblical worldview. Although I disagreed with a lot of it I have great respect and appreciation for Brian taking the time to explain his views. I can't say I've read many books where the author explains his theology but it's a great way to inform the readers. Noah Primeval also had it's theology explained.

As unique as this story is, more fantasy then reality, the God of the Bible (Yahweh Elohim) is given all the honor and praise He deserves. The love of God and the evil of the fallen angels are clearly defined. The court scene in heaven is perfectly written and could probably be used in an apologetics class.

Brian Godawa has done it again with Enoch Primordial. Readers will recognize my name from the blurb on the back, but that just isn't enough space to convey my enthusiasm for what Brian is doing with this series. As a scholar in the fields of biblical and ancient Near Eastern studies, I know there is a virtually unknown and under-appreciated panorama of tradition and epic myth behind the few short verses we have in the Old Testament about Enoch -- the stuff that jaw-dropping stories are made of. Brian is deeply conversant in that material and brings it all to bear with the skill and flair of an imaginative, clever, and engaging fantasy writer. How many times have you finished a piece of fiction that not only entertained you, but made you want to take notes and dive into the information that formed the basis of the story? In my experience, that's rare -- and therefore memorable. If you want to get off the reservation of formulaic fiction ("please, not another 'thriller' about a doctor, lawyer, or private eye") Enoch Primordial will provide your escape.

Brian Godawa has outdone himself. Noah Primeval was a biblical romp through a mythological playground. But Enoch Primordial? Well, let's just say C.S. Lewis' Narnia now takes a back seat to the Nephilim Chronicles. Seriously. (It isn't to the level of Tolkien though). Brian shows his mastery of history, mythology, the Bible, apologetics, and best of all, storytelling.

Like the first book, Enoch Primordial reads like a modern Hollywood screen play, not surprising, since Godawa is a Hollywood screen writer. It is fast paced and edge of the seat with a massive, epic ending worthy of IMAX 3-D. I usually prefer a bit more teasing out of the characters. I am reading a book, not watching a movie after all. Nevertheless, I didn't want to put this down and I did feel I got to know the characters to a sufficient degree.

Brian clearly knows his stuff. He is so perfectly spot on in the details from the myths of the Ancient Near East to the Jewish Legends and traditions that I truly consider this historical fiction, even though it seems so incredible to modern sensibilities. He weaves biblical ideas, including tons of verses from all over the Scripture into the narrative in such a way that most people won't have any idea it is happening. Like any truly great story, Enoch is also contemporary in its apologetic value for non-believers as well as its subtle cultural and political critiques. None of this is in your face. Like I said, you wouldn't even know it is you didn't know what you were reading up front.

But it for yourself and learn about the ancient mindset, including the biblical authors who wrote and read about Enoch. But it for your friends be they Christian or not. They will be blown away and perhaps even challenged in their faith.

I read this book first instead of Noah Primordial because I knew the events in this book happened before the other. After doing so, I would probably recommend that you start with Noah first and then continue to this one if you really like it. Noah's plot line is much better developed. I really like the setting of Enoch Primordial. It's really cool to bring a fantasy world to events of the Bible. The beginning is really great and helps you to understand how the fallen angels have decided to take on roles of myths from the earth. The reason I rate this three stars instead of four stars is because the plot is not really developed. You don't know what the characters are trying to accomplish. The side events are really fun though. Another complaint that I have is how short the book is. I wish Godawa would develop his great setting into a massive epic fantasy masterpiece with really developed characters. The main characters change every book making them never get fully developed.

Overall, worth a read. Entertaining and fun.
