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.

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.

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!

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!

"Giants" launches Vaughn Heppner's Lost Civilizations series, a boisterous series of tales of early semi civilization that chronicles man's battles with the demonic spawn of fallen angels. The legend is that the bene elohim parted from their celestial brethren, took on forms of flesh and came to earth. However, there they were trapped. They reveled in excess, taking wives and spawning a new generation, the first born. Evil beyond measure possessed this band and its progeny. Humans were considered cattle. The first born and their subsequent generation, the nephilim, kill, rape and pillage. They have superior strength and size. In some cases, the mere humans worship their vileness. The prodigious Heppner starts this story with Joash, a mere slave who decides to escape his brutal master. His master is a later generation of giant. Strong, mean and without compassion of any sort, this monster uses slaves as expendable pterodactyl egg stealers. Joash escapes with the help of a valiant warrior, Herreck, and joins with the legions of Lord Uriah. Joash doesn't know it but he's got power of his own. It's pretty unremarkable but "the fire burns strong." What Joash has frightens the giants. Their magical powers don't affect him. At its essence this story is about belief in a higher power. Joash figures it out, and his faith helps his group persevere. Heppner creates conflict. His heroes suffer greatly before figuring out how to overcome. But that's his allure as a writer. I read this and then plowed (seriously) through the rest of the series. I'd rank Heppner, who has a whole slew of other books in various genres, right up there with the great pulp writers of the 1930s and 1940s. If you've read the unmolested works of Robert E. Howard and Gardener F. Fox, you'll understand. He's that good. Just straight up adventure. It also reminded me of Burroughs' Pellucidar series.

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!

VH has written a novel of two worlds interfering with each other. The story line is excellent. To be honest it was confusing at first . However, the more I read the more I liked the novel. The author definitely has an active imagination. This is an excellent read for the genre......ER
