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. Most of all, buy it to start creating the kind of worldview that only a story is capable of creating in your mind. Then know that it is a biblical worldview and ponder that thought for many weeks and months to come.
I hope and pray that these books will be made into movies! As a fan of C.S. Lewis and Tolkien since I was a kid, I realize that all great stories are based on plots that really happened in our history! This series will provide much room for discussion and understanding of the battle between the enemy of our souls and the Savior of the World!
Thank you, Brian, for persevering and getting these books published. I'm looking forward to reading the rest of the series, as I flew through Enoch (read it 1st as I love being Chronologically correct) and Noah!
Chronicles of the Nephilim Series by Brian Godawa is a Wonderful, Amazing Adventure series based on the Bible. The Series contains 8 books which are;
Noah Primeval (Chronicles of the Nephilim Book 1)
Enoch Primordial (Chronicles of the Nephilim Book 2) A Prequel to Book 1. (I read this one first to stay in time order, But you can do it which ever way your prefer).
Gilgamesh Immortal (Chronicles of the Nephilim Book 3)
Abraham Allegiant (Chronicles of the Nephilim Book 4)
Joshua Valiant (Chronicles of the Nephilim Book 5)
Caleb Vigilant (Chronicles of the Nephilim Book 6)
David Ascendant (Chronicles of the Nephilim Book 7)
and the soon Coming Jesus Ascendant (Chronicles of the Nephilim Book 8)
Brian Godawa is an author who entertains and educates. We get the Biblical Narrative as well as many ancient beliefs and myths (Babylonian, Assyrian, Philistine, etc.,) all put together in a wonderful coherent story that stays true to Biblical narrative and at the same time is a fast paced action packed adventure drama with superheros and super villains deluxe.
In a way this is like Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit, but instead of taking biblical truths and setting them to a myth it takes the Biblical stories and fills in the blanks with "myths". Godawa takes mythical concepts and makes them real in the books such as Leviathan and Rahab. But he has done his research and this fictional story may be closer to the truth then many expect.
Godawa deals with Angels, Fallen Angels, Nephilim, The Giants in Scriptures, Demons, Giant Slayers, etc., There are additional pages of special appendixes that provide an explanation of Biblical concepts all 7 novel's such as the Divine Council, the Nephilim, Leviathan, and the ancient Mesopotamian Cosmography in the Bible, Number of Israelites who left Egypt, Styers, Dragons, etc.,
IF you like Lord of the Rings, the Hobbit, Harry Potter, really any fantasy writings you will like this as well. This is an adult series though. Not for the very young. I really hope they make the whole series into movies.
