Book Description

In a Dark World of Angelic Watchers and Nephilim Giants, One Man is Called by God: Enoch the Giant Killer.

Before Noah, before the Flood, the world was wicked beyond imagination. But one man stood out from the rest: Enoch.

"Enoch walked with God, and he was not, for God took him." That's all the Biblical book of Genesis tells us about this enigmatic primordial holy man.

The ancient Book of Enoch tells us that he pronounced judgment on the fallen Watchers and their giant progeny, the Nephilim of Genesis 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 original story of the fall of the angelic Watchers from heaven and the rise of the Nephilim giants 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 Primeval when they were much younger, like Methuselah and Uriel, as well as the origin stories of the lead villainous Watchers, Semjaza and Azazel who became the gods Anu and Inanna.


Learn About the Historical and Biblical Research Behind the Novel

There seems to be a Nephilim craze these days. A great interest in the giants, Watchers and the Book of Enoch. Lots of books out there about the End Times and Nephilim in the modern day. 
But Enoch Primordial and Chronicles of the Nephilim Biblical Fantasy Series tells the original story from the ancient past that all began with Genesis 6

Author Godawa shares the scholarly research that undergirds the fictional adventure. Enoch Primordial has appendices that provide an explanation of Biblical concepts in the novel such as the Watchers, Nephilim, Giants, Leviathan, the Book of Enoch and other Biblical mysteries.


Biblical Fantasy Based on History and Ancient Mythology

Enoch Primordial
is written in the spirit of The Chronicles of Narnia and The Lord of the Rings, blending fantasy and mythopoeia with history to retell the Biblical narrative with a fresh perspective, making it come alive in a new way, while staying true to the original spirit of the Bible story. It's like filling in the story between the lines of what the Bible tells us.

4.0 out of 5 stars Phantasmagorical Story Of The Life Of Enoch September 19, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Volume 2 of a Biblical Lord of the Rings Saga November 2, 2012
Format:Paperback
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic August 19, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book was great! Got it yesterday and finished it before bed. I like it even better than book 1, and that was a great read. Keep up the good work Brian, we need this kind of material. These are stories that a man can enjoy because they are gritty and the characters feel like real people trying to do their best in spite of their failures. God bless you Brian. Can't wait for the next one!

5.0 out of 5 stars Loaded with interesting intrigue June 11, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is a must read for anyone who likes adventure in their reading. Brian Godawa offers up sword fighting giants and warriors nomads, unconditional sacrifice of the main character Enoch, angels that are unlike any you have heard about before, and lets end this review with read the book you wont be disappointed. The other books in this line by Godawa are absolutely great. I have read all of his books. As I am not a great critic and do not have the words to describe how this book and his others will transfer you from this world to a world past, all I can say is read the book and you will be hooked.

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW May 11, 2013
By slamar
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was a great book. It had the action of Hunger Games but the story behind the story of Narnia. I just purchased the paperback for my 10th grade daughter, and my wife is currently reading it on the kindle. I really love to sit and think about the whole theme of the war between the Seed of the women and the seed of the serpent. I read Noah first and that was really good also this is going to be a great series. On a Spiritual note reading this book raised my worship especially when reading Scripture and connecting some of the characters from these first two books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Reads like you're watching a film! August 26, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Chronicles of the Nephilim is a great series that takes rounds out Old Testament characters with extensive extra-biblical research and creative license. The results are an easy-to-read-hard-to-put-down series of novels that action/fantasy readers will love. I was first introduced to Brian Godawa upon watching 'To End All Wars' and intrigued to research on who the screenwriter was. His novels are equally compelling that read like you're watching a film.

5.0 out of 5 stars Such a good read! August 22, 2013
By Jessica
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've only got about halfway so far, but this book, along with the first book of the series Noah Primeval is really exciting- I read through that one in about a week. I had no idea what I was getting myself into in purchasing this book, but I highly recommend it to anyone out there considering to buy it. I can't wait to read Gilgamesh and Abraham- the following books of the series.
