Book Description

The Nephilim had a plan. They would storm Eden, defeat the guardian Cherub with his flaming sword and eat from the Tree of Life. Then they would rule the Earth as immortal gods.

First, they needed armor to resist the flaming sword. Second, they needed a weapon to kill an angel. And third, they had to forge a champion capable of this feat. Their quest could unleash terrible forces upon the Elder Earth, but they were the sons of fallen angels and they would trample anyone who dared to stand in their way.

GIANTS is the start of Lost Civilizations. It tells of the war between Nephilim and men in the days before the oceans overran the Pre-Cataclysmic World. GIANTS is a fantasy novel by bestselling author Vaughn Heppner.

5.0 out of 5 stars Watch this author September 16, 2010

This is the third book by this author I have purchased. Do not judge the quality by the bad covers. This author is very good. I am surprised that the brick and mortar publishers let this author go. Assuming the quality continues to hold, I expect to read all of his books. This is more of a fantasy book rather than hard SF which I prefer, but the author talent makes it well worth reading.

I am still a little surprised at the high quality for an e-book only and am waiting for the other shoe to drop.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very interesting concept January 25, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
OK...first the good. This isn't a bad story, and the concept behind this book is very intriguing. I think that the author is creative and very imaginative, and my wife and I considered this a pretty fun read.
Now, the negative. I'm not a snob when it comes to writing, and I'm under no illusion that I could do any better, but sometimes this book was just hard to read. The writing just didn't flow, the word choices were occasionally very odd, and the character development wasn't what I hoped.

Overall, this is a great concept that feels anticlimactic in the execution. When we finished this book, we debated whether we should buy the second book and ultimately decided that we really didn't feel like reading anymore, at least for now. Maybe we will come back to it later, but we just aren't compelled by the writing.

Awesome story about the humans and the Nephilim before the great Flood. I hope the author continues writing this saga as well as the Lod saga. Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars this book and this author are marvelous!!!!!!!! February 14, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
having bought an iPad because it supports "Kindle", I started looking in the Kindle store and almost immediately I discovered the books by mister Vaughn Heppner.These books and especially Giants and the "Lost Civilizations series" remind me very much of the late Robert Ervin Howard whose almost every letter I have read in the past. The writing is excellent, not to say brilliant, mr Heppner knows his trade and is a master in building up suspense. Now and then I have to put the iPad away for some minutes because I cannot stand the tension any longer. but after some minutes I restart reading and enjoying! thank you so much mister Heppner! I hope you will write a lot more of these wonderful books!

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth more than just $0.99!!! January 8, 2012
By Marz
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I stumbled upon this series while at the airport. I saw it as an easy investment, because there are giants, sabertooth's, evil angels, mythical characters, it all takes place in BC times and it was only $0.99, how could you beat that!?
At first, I felt that it was just an easy read with open characters and a simple plot, but totally worth the price that was paid, but after delving deeper into the book, I became very interested in what would happen next. Suffice it to say, I ending up quickly killing the entire series of seven books in less than a week.
Vaughn is a unique writer, builds the character well, doesn't spend too much time on useless details which I appreciate(*the wind made the leaves flutter and dance with a sensuousness of a monkey farting*)and at the end of the series, asked us, the readers, how we would like the series to continue.
I can't say that I am interested in reading any of his other books about space, but I really did enjoy his Lost Civilizations Series!

2.0 out of 5 stars Not what I expected December 3, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The idea for the story is great. Christian creation written as fiction about a race of people that almost nothing is known about. I went into this really hoping for something better than I got...

The biggest problem I had? I would be reading and, honestly, get so bored with it that I forgot what I was reading about. Don't let the sample fool you. The opening scene is pretty good and will hook you. It just drops off the cliff from there. (No pun intended)

I read a later writing from Heppner titled Sword of Carthage and I can honestly say that his writing does get better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome book - Well thought out storyline February 13, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The Author does a great job of taking one part of the Genesis history and creating an entire story out of it. The characters are very well developed and stays true the whole way throughout the series. I have enjoyed these books a great deal. I just wish they were longer. Perhaps I am just devouring them way too quickly. These would be a great read for a teenage boy who is curious about Bible history and how dry Bible history can be. Heppner brings the people alive to life.

5.0 out of 5 stars An largely ignored myth/era well done June 14, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The giants and times of the very early bible seemed to have been ignored by most, but Mr. Heppner gives it a great epic fantasy treatment in this series. I don't think you have to be biblically literate or even a believer to enjoy the story. Elves and dragons this ain't, and it's all the better for it. I've bought the first two in the series and will be getting the rest as I can. Very much worth the money.

5.0 out of 5 stars good story, clean, righteous and interesting
Recommended for teens and up. Nothing to make you flinch, but does have scenes of aggression and killings
in war against evil. Keeps your interest and makes you think, too.

More About the Author

You can visit Vaughn at

I was born in Canada and remember as a small boy crawling in my snow-fort. I closed my eyes, and when I tried to open them, they were frozen shut. I didn't panic, but wiped away the ice crystals, unglued my eyes and kept on building my tunnel. Those were great days! I moved to Central California before seventh grade and couldn't believe I lived in a land where oranges grew on trees and you could pick grapes from the vine.

I used to wonder what I wanted to do with my life, what kind of work specifically. I was miserable not knowing and bordering on desperate. Then one day a friend gave me his typewriter. I began working on a novel. A different person told me it was much easier on a computer, so I bought one and began getting up at 4:30 A.M. each morning before work, writing for three hours. My eyes were unglued once again as the pang of misery left my gut. I knew exactly what I wanted to do: write. So now that's what I do, I write, and write, and write, and I love it.
