Review

5 out of 5 stars

This book grabs you immediately and it doesn't turn you loose until you've read the last word. Carefully plan when you will begin reading it because it's more than likely you won't be able to put it down. Renee Pawlish is now on my favorite writer list and it's not a long one.
Bert Carson, author of Southern Investigation

With so many great reviews I thought this would be a really good book, but the author keeps repeating herself. I've read 20% of the book and I'm having trouble continuing. I love stories based on ancient evil like the Nephilim of the Bible, and am hoping the story will pick up, but it doesn't take 1/5 of a book to convince the reader that the town is gloomy! The people are gloomy! The town is having unusually hot weather! The cabin the main character is staying in has a bad feel to it--no one wants to stay there. It is the only one available so he has to stay there. There is something gloomy in the air; there is something gloomy in the forest.

There, that is the first 1/5th of the story. If the next 4/5ths cover so little territory I think it would be better to skip it.

Nephilim Genesis of Evil takes place in the small Colorado tourist town of Taylor Crossing. Journalist and paranormal researcher Rory Callahan finds himself involved in a supernatural investigation of biblical proportions, and he can't seem to rationalize this one away. He also develops and interest in Anna Holmes the local grocery store owner.

The beginning starts a little slow, and some other reviewers have noted this. However, if you have ever been in a small town, redundant conversation is the norm. Everyone wants to know the stranger, and everyone will say, "You're staying in that house." and roll their eyes. It helps to set the scene, and introduce the cast. Once through the small town introductions the plot takes off. There was a lot more action and death than I expected in a zombie kind of way.

I was not familiar with the Nephilim. I may have slept through Genesis at Church, so I learned something by reading her book. She holds a Masters degree from Denver Conservative Baptist Seminary, so she is probably accurate with her biblical understanding of the Nephilim.

I enjoyed reading it, and was sucked in by the characters and the story. The characters are believable, and the story line held true to its self. I would have no problem reading another book by Renee.

I don't read many horror stories. Yes, I'm sure there are more out there that are more graphic and have more terrfiying elements than what is contained here, but to me, it was pretty spooky!

Nephilim Genesis of Evil centers on the fictitious town of Taylor Crossing, a (former) gold mining town at the center of some unexplained phenomena. When a big-city paranormal researcher is drawn to the small town, he thinks it's to research several unexplained mysteries that befell the town nearly a century before. However, history begins to repeat itself as townsfolk start turning up missing. Rory suffers a chilling realization: whatever happened to those people a century ago is happening again and he, along with a few other brave townsfolk, must figure out how to stop the terrifying events from happening again.

The descriptive details in the book were outstanding. I loved how easily I could picture the small rustic town still struggling to survive. I can easily picture a town that once thrived in the madness of the gold rush. I can easily imagine the multitude of mines, all in various stages of disuse, dotting the landscape as at one time throngs of people sifted through the rocks and stones, desperately searching for the telltale flakes of gold.

I was rather surprised at how much I enjoyed the story. Ms. Pawlish has a very easy-going writing style that flows well. I personally would have liked to learn how the Nephilim were able to "coerce" other followers by simply staring at their eyes. I know it was explained as some type of hypnotic stare, but I was hoping for a little more explanation than that. Still, it clearly didn't bother me enough 'cause I was almost shouting at my iPad at various characters, yelling "No! Don't look 'em in the eye!!!" :) I also thought the story ended without too much closure, but then again, I'm told a sequel is in the works.

Great job! Looking forward to the next in the series!

Does Evil actually exist in our Universe? Rory Callahan believes it does, and he has both recent personal experience plus research to prove it. Struck by a New York City taxi just moments after seeing and hearing a sentient black fog hovering above traffic, the journalist researches other instances of a similar manifestation, and discovers a 19th bizarre event in a small Colorado mining town. Rory doesn't know why he was targeted-but clearly, since the fog or mist entity addressed him, and then he was struck and injured-it does "know" him.

As he discovers in the history of little Taylor's Crossing, Colorado, some hundred years ago a similar feature was spotted there-some townsfolk moved away, and survived; the rest of the townspeople completely disappeared. Now rebuilt as a tourist attraction venture, Rory takes up residence there hoping to discover the truth, whatever it may be!

This is a fascinating Supernatural novel, which will appeal to many types of readers with its magnetic plotting and easily empathetic characters. The settings are very well-described, and the suspense is taut, and escalated carefully to hook the reader and keep her attention riveted.
