Genesis 6:4 is a thought-provoking verse from the Bible, strongly suggesting that there once were giants (Nephilin) born from unions between fallen angels and human women. Many Bible scholars believe that the verse only refers to the sons of Seth (Sethites – Godly) and daughters of Cain (Cainites – evil). Most Bible scholars agree that the reason God sent the flood to destroy the earth was due to the evilness of mankind. But could it in fact have been to destroy the Nephilin?
It’s this Bible verse that college student Ty Larson decides to research for a course paper. The deeper he gets into his research, the more strange things happen in Ty’s life, leading him to realize that he’s not the only one interested in this subject. His quest takes him to Egypt, Lebanon and Argentina with danger pursuing him all the way.
This is a very interesting fictional book that is based on facts, Biblical studies and myths and fables that many people believe are actually true. I think the author does an excellent job in racketing up the suspense and in spiking interest in the Nephilin (did they all perish in the flood?) and massive stone structures (how could they have been made with primitive tools?). This is the type of book that raises more questions than answers but that isn’t a bad thing.
I enjoyed this fast-paced book but was a bit disappointed in the ending, which is a cliff hanger. The author is working on the sequel. I wish I had known that before I chose to read the book as I would have preferred to wait until the sequel came out so I could read both books closer together. I tend to forget details in books if there’s a long period between reading a series such as this. But I am interested in reading the sequel, which the author has promised will reveal the purpose of the Great Pyramid of Giza, the mystery of the Bermuda Triangle and what the phenomenon of ghosts are.
I believe this book will cause many of its readers to become interested in the possibility of Nephilin actually existing at one time and will encourage them to look into it further and for that reason alone, the book deserves recognition. If you like Dan Brown conspiracy theory novels or books based on archeology, theology or mythology, this book is for you.
This book was given to me by the author in return for an honest review.
