The forefather and patriarch you thought you knew. After the Great Flood, the giant king Nimrod builds the Tower of Babel and unites the world in rebellion against the Creator.

He causes the confusion of languages and disperses Nimrod's kingdom to theThe forefather and patriarch you thought you knew. After the Great Flood, the giant king Nimrod builds the Tower of Babel and unites the world in rebellion against the Creator. He seeks to achieve godhood as world potentate and bring in the pantheon of gods to rule with him. But God has other plans. He causes the confusion of languages and disperses Nimrod's kingdom to the four corners of the earth, allotting the nations under the authority of pagan deities. He then chooses a simple nomad Abram as next in the line of the seed of Promise. But Nimrod is not dead. He sets out on a course of revenge to find Abram and kill him in order to thwart God’s plan of creating a people for his own inheritance. As Nimrod’s quest drives him deeper into madness, the stakes rise. The land which Abram is being given is Canaan, where the goddess Ashtart is carrying out her own plans of breeding the seed of the Serpent. The War of the Seed is rising. Chronicles of the Nephilim is written in the mythic genre of The Lord of the Rings and Narnia, blending fantasy and mythopoeia with history to retell the Biblical narrative with a fresh perspective, while staying true to the original spirit of the story....

    I would have given this book more stars but he is too graphic in his sexual acts descriptions. Yes, we get it, everyone was extremely sinful and gross but please don't put word images into our heads by telling us what they were doing. It was incredibly unnecessary and totally detracts from the story... Which I really liked; luckily for him, the overall story is engaging enough to keep me reading but barely. Seriously, this is not for anyone under 18 and I can only hope the next books are not so graphic in the sex arena lest I not be able to finish the series which I really want to do because again, the story is really cool.

    I gave this book 3 stars instead of 4 because while it was very entertaining & well written like the others in the series, it at times was just too graphic. I get that the author needed to explain the depravity of the times, which were obscene (it is partly telling the story of Sodom & Gommorah) but I do not need to hear that "Marduk took his arm out of Enki's anus"... There was a point in the book where for after about 30 minutes of reading I realized that my face had been scrunched up in disgust that I was concerned it was going to freeze that way lol. The people in that time were completely depraved it just made me feel like I needed to take multiple showers. But thankfully the author didn't give long drawn out play by plays of the acts, but seriously this book is for sure rated R. The disturbing mentions of bestiality, incest, rape (of ALL kinds- seriously how terrifying must it have been to be a woman back then and also as in Abram's case, the husband of a woman that men constantly wanted to abduct & rape?!), and also the extremely graphic & violent battle scenes were very hard to read at times... But I'm still going to read the next book, though if it's as bad as this one I probably won't finish it.

    When I was in college I worked at a grocery store, and occasionally stocked the frozen section. At that time, Kroger stocked "chicken rings" -- basically, pressed chicken formed into rings that you would fry and then eat, kind of like onion rings. I used to buy them every week, and every week I'd get sick. Not a little sick; stomach-clutchingly, gut-wrenchingly, god-awfully sick. Yet I still bought them, until I got better sense. These books are like those chicken rings. They're just awful: the descriptions are cursory; the dialogue is trite and grating; the characters are unlovable; the plot is constructed with all the grace of a cardboard box. I just hate them. I grimace in disgust as I read them. And yet I continue to read them.

    Fantastic readThe Author is amazing and explains his actions in the back of the book. I have read each book so far and I have truly enjoyed each. But, when you read these books PLEASE make sure you read his notes, etc. Do not let these books take place of your reading and studying the Bible. But, these books can enlighten you on factual information that you can learn to fill in the blanks of the Bible.

    Very disappointedI started reading this series to get a different, but still biblical view on past events. The earlier books were very entertaining. This one was entertaining, but too much sex and vulgarity. Also I am growing bored with the repeated attempts at pushing the liberal talking points throughout this series. Taking quotes directly from the DNC talking points. "Never let a good crisis go to waste", the one percent living in the backs of the 99%. I may not finish the series of this gets worse. I read to enjoy and learn , not be brainwashed.

    To begin this review, I want to be honest in saying that I have not even finished reading the book yet. Normally I would not review anything without completing the story. But I felt compelled to jump on here just to get other peoples opinions and read some of the other reviews to see if people were feeling the same as I was. Not surprisingly, more than a handful of people share my opinion. I am a big fan of Brian Godawa's Nephilim series, and have thoroughly enjoyed reading the series thus far. I really appreciate the context and background narrative, as well as the extensive research that he does for telling the story. He clearly has spent a lot of time laying the groundwork for his novels. All that being said, I find myself bothered by this book in particular. I'm a young guy who isn't usually bothered by things most people would think obscene. But to me it feels like he goes out of the way to give excessively explicit detail about depraved sexual things that add no value to the story whatsoever. They totally take away from the story to me. In the previous novels, I have found the violence and brutal honesty of the times to be refreshing, along with the detour away from the typical Christian "goody two shoes" style of novel you expect from Christian authors. Not so with this one. I don't need to hear about throngs of people who are aroused and essentially gyrating by the sight of a woman's swollen vulva, or that one of the demigods is shoving his fist up a kings backside, who by the way has come to enjoy being sexually abused and raped. I'm at the point of the novel where I'm aware that Sodom and Gomorrah is about to be introduced, so considering the depravedly I've already read, I can only imagine what I'm in store for once we get to this notorious place in the bible known for being so fallen. Perhaps it is unfair of me to write this review before I finish it, but I feel like at this point the three stars is actually a mercy rating. As much as I love the series, this is just too much for me. And like I said, I'm a pretty desensitized guy who isn't bothered by much. My two favorite shows on TV are Game of Thrones and The Walking Dead, so it takes a bit to disturb me. Maybe it's just the fact that this is a series that I feel should stay without SOME kind of bounds in its explicitness, you know, being based on Gods holy word and all... Now I feel like I'm being mean, so I should say that with the exception of the sexual vulgarity, the story telling is top notch, and I love reading the 'how it might have gone' depiction. I think the plot is strong, the characters are, well, realistic for their portrayal, and it continues to lay the framework of the biblical narrative in a non Sunday school manner. Great novel - thus far - but with an enormously detracting weakness that I just can't see past.

    Another awesome installment in Brian Godawa's Biblical epic. Godawa does a great job at pooling together several extra-biblical sources as well as the Bible's telling of the life of Abraham. Picking up where Gilgamesh Immortal left off, we begin with the efforts of King Nimrod to control the world through the help of watcher angels (gods) and Terah, Abram's father. Much of the story sticks very close to the events portrayed in the ancient Book of Jasher. The story of Abram's birth, his being secreted away, his return, the courtship of Sarai, the construction of the tower of Babel, the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, and drama leading up to the birth of Isaac are all brought to life with the intensity of a major motion picture.Be aware that this is not your typical Sunday School reading of this story. There are some R-Rated things happening as Godawa reflects the depravity of the watchers and their pagan influence on the human race. As he states, the depravity is given some detail to add power to the redemption which overcomes it.Abraham Allegiant is a fast read, action packed from beginning to end, and leaves us with a desire to read the next book. Like his other books in the series, be sure to check out the appendix at the end, as it provides details of his research and loads of rich information into the biblical and extra-biblical resources he used. Great job, Brian!

    I really enjoy this series and I love the visuals, most of the time. I cannot however give this book five stars. Why you ask? The sexual depravity of the evil characters was too graphic and it at times spoiled the story. The author makes it clear how bad these guys are with a lot of detail. I did not think it was necessary after the first few instances, but do not shy away from this series it presents an amazing view of the Biblical story that makes the story come alive. It is just not for those under the age of 18. Recommended

    Brian Godawa is without doubt one of the most amazing storytellers of our time. This is the 4th book in The Chronicles of the Nephilim series. This is not like any Bible story you have ever read. It has extreme amounts of violence, so it is definitely not for everyone. But this book is every bit is good as the rest of the series.

    Enjoying this seriesInteresting take on stories we have studied just a bit and often neglect in today's rush to the New Testament. He takes you on a fast, fun, trip filled with real people, makes you wonder maybe....

    Thrilling to read Brian Godawa continues to tantalize the imagination with this installment of the Nephilim Chronicles. Fantastically written and extremely thought provoking...this series has been full of excitement and I cannot wait to start the next book in the series

    I have loved this series. Although, I did not like Abraham Allegiant nearly as much as the first three books.

    A good use of Jewish sources. An entertaining retelling of the story of Abraham. See APPENDIX OF EACH BOOK IN THE SERIES.
