About the Author
BCE is originally from parts unknown and currently resides in areas of the planet yet to be explored. His favorite pastime is reading old encyclopedias while eating Peanut M&M’s. He does believe that the warehouse depicted at the end of Raiders of the Lost Ark actually exists. He has only one goal left in his life that he wishes to accomplish: to live long enough to see the aliens return so he may look over at his beautiful wife in her nursing-home bed and say, “I told you so.”

The Orionites find another planet so King Osiris sends their best men Lucifer and Zues in search of this new planet hoping to find someone out there that may be able to help them find a cure for the virus. But when they arrive at the new planet they find the planet is gone. But luckily they spot another planet in the solar system.
On this new planet they find life, a different species of hominids that mate freely and run around with no clothes on. They also find fire breathing dragons that from the looks of things are protecting something on the planet and Lucifer has every intention of finding out just what it is they are protecting. They give this new planet the name of Terra Firma and it has lots of green grass and large bodies of water.
When I read the summary for In the Beginning I knew I had to read it although I didn’t think it was actually my kind of book but I had to give it a shot. I am so glad that I did give it a try because it was definitely my kind of book. I enjoyed it tremendously. In the Beginning will take you to places no one has gone before. It is a mixture of mythology and Christianity.
I think my favorite character was Lucifer. Why? Well because Lucifer was always in search of knowledge and of the truth. He was always thinking and calculating trying to figure something out. He seemed like a great man and person. He loved his wife Eden very much. He also loved his daughter Eve a lot too. He lost his Eden and Eve a long time ago. But he did have his son Abidon whom he loved very much as well and would do anything for. Abidon is a very great human being as well with the sacrifice he made.
My other favorite character was Behemoth, a great big giant of a man with a heart as big as he is and was not afraid to shed a tear.
I would recommend this book to anyone who loves mythology or a good science fiction, fantasy book.
I would have to say that this story is a very ambitious one. The idea that ancient gods could have been extraterrestrials is nothing new in science fiction...I might even go so far as to say that this is a fairly well used trope. Unfortunately, the speed at which the reader is plunged into this universe presents a lot of material to process in what I would still think of in a short amount of time. We know that the Orionites have a huge problem in terms of reproduction, but as for what the culture is like, the history of these spacefaring people, how the governing body works (with the exception of vague hints and titles like King and General)...these things aren't presented.
For myself at least, the lack of a clear narrative plus the use of these aliens making fairly current pop culture references and using some very interesting language didn't work all that well. Lots of interesting ideas are thrown quickly, including about the development of the solar system and the origin of humanity...and did I mention the dragons? Unfortunately I couldn't tell if some of these references were meant to be tongue in cheek or just that we had a gigantic novel built on a stack of strange “conspiracy theory” style notions. For this idea to work, I think that a good deal of refinement is necessary on this oddly paced plot.
I will say that this is a unique work, and if it had a bit more polish I could see this work becoming an epic story.

I don’t want to spoil this for anyone, but I loved it and it kept me gripped until the end. I loved the way the story flowed and explained how so of many of the great floods, Atlantis Lost continents dragons. Was Moses the first Sc-fi novelist? This has gone the alien interference route. This kept me glued to my kindle reading through the night. I love all mythical stories as well as Science Fiction, so this book was a real treat. The only problem for me when I got to the end. I wanted to carry on reading, so when is the next book coming out?
I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
From Cynthia: Such a fun novel! So creative and thought provoking! Can't wait to find out more about Lilith and the people in the cave, Luc, Zues, Osiris, etc. Hoping for a sequel?! Also want to know more about the author and more about the "Truths"!
