The Last Valkyrie by Jeremy Robinson
The Last Valkyrie - Jeremy Robinson,Tori Paquette

Excited to be going back to the world of Antarktos! Although this book can be read as a stand-alone, I highly recommend reading Antarktos Rising and, one of my all time favorites, The Last Hunter.


This is the story of Solomon's daughters, Aquila and Norah, as they learn to fight and survive the underground realm of Antarktos when Aquila is taken by the Nephilim, who want to turn her into a hunter. Norah must overcome her fear of inadequacy in order to save her sister and on the way, learn about her amazing power.

 

Highly recommend (the whole series)!

Federal Underground (Penn Mitchell's Ancient Alien Saga) by Jeff Bennington
Federal Underground (Penn Mitchell's Ancient Alien Saga) - Jeff Bennington

I'm glad I voted for this one under the Kindle Scout program and it got picked to be published by Kindle Press, because it is definitely my type of thriller! It's got malevolent aliens, a conspiracy involving our government and these beings, secret underground bases and a resistance group. If anyone has ever read, "Behold a Pale Horse", or is interested in conspiracy theories about aliens, this book is for you. It has an underlying Christian theme running through it, but it will make you see these aliens in a new light against scripture. The aliens were creepy and very frightening!

It grabbed me from the get go and I finished this book in one day. Can't wait for the next one!

 

5 stars and a winner for me. Recommended for alien conspiracy fans!

Title: Nephilim: Genesis of Evil

Series: -----

Author: Renee Pawlish

Rating: 2 of 5 Stars

Genre: Horror

Pages: 345

Format: Kindle digital edition

 

 

 

 

Synopsis:

 

The Nephilim, the offspring of fallen angels and humans, wiped out in the Biblical Flood thousands of years ago, survive as lost spirits, yearning to return to the spirit world.

Every century they have a chance to perform the Great Release in which they possess humans and ascend to a higher plane of existence.

Now a small town in Colorado is the focus and it is up to a small, disparate group of people to stop the Nephilim from wiping out the town.

 

 

 

My Thoughts:

 

First, this is Christian Horror. Lots of references to the Bible and off handed, sideways references to Grace and Salvation. Done right, it can be alright, although I haven't read any done right yet. Not even Frank Peretti with The Oath or House really did it for me.

 

However, this was something that needed to be edited by a professional story editor. Not a grammar editor, mind you. The technical aspects of the writing were just fine. But the actual story telling and the characters were lackluster at best. In Horror, you can't just write that something was "terrifying". You need to show how/why it was. Unfortunately Pawlish just doesn't have the writing skills to pull this off. This amounted to a great first draft but that was it. I can't tell someone how TO write "terrifying" but I sure can tell them how NOT TO write it. Don't tell me.

I was told, a lot.

The characters were also "almost there" but really lacked something. They weren't cardboard, but they weren't real people to me either.

 

It was obvious that Pawlish put a lot of thought into the plot, into the characters, into this book. But her ideas weren't written out well enough. She doesn't have the talent right now to write this book. Maybe in the future? But I'm not sticking around to find out. I really struggled to finish this, so I won't spend any more of my time on her stuff.

 

There is a bunch I could write on the theological level, but why bother? It won't make or break this book for anyone, trust me.

[INTERVIEW] Proud ├╝ber Tanya Carpenter
Nephilim - L. A. Vampires 1 - Tanya Carpenter
Proud ist einer der beiden McLean-Cousins aus der Serie L.A. Vampires, die im bookshouse-Verlag erschienen ist. Er ist eher der Bad Boy, während sein Cousin Kyle seine Aufgabe als Azrae (Todesengel) sehr ernst nimmt. Proud genießt lieber das Leben, feiert Partys, hat seinen Spaß mit wechselnden Damenbekanntschaften, denen er auch gern ein wenig Blut aussaugt. Die Azrae haben zwar – genau wie ihre Gegenspieler die Grigori (Wächterengel) – diverse Züge der modernen Vampirfiguren, sind aber in Wahrheit genau wie die Cherubim, die Djin und einige andere Wesen Gefallene Engel, die alle zusammen einer großen Prophezeiung entgegensehen, die jeder auf seine eigene Art und Weise lenken will.
Die Begegnung mit Beth Preston, einer Nephilim, verändert für Proud und Kyle alles. Auch mit Proud geht seitdem eine charakterliche Wandlung einher, obwohl er das nur ungern zugibt.
 
1. Stell Tanya Carpenter doch erst einmal kurz vor.
Sie ist eine ausgesprochen sanfte und liebenswerte Person. Auf den ersten Blick. Aber ich weiß es besser. Tief in ihr drin schlummert auch diese dunkle Seite voller Geheimnisse. Dieser Seite an ihr bin ich verfallen – und sie weiß das auch. Sowohl, dass sie diese besitzt als auch, dass ich eine Schwäche dafür habe. Ich denke, sie liebt diesen Teil ihrer Seele mehr als sie manchmal zugeben will. Das ist auch der Grund für ihre Geschichten. Sie ist der Dunkelheit und uns – den Wesen, die diese Dunkelheit bevölkern – mindestens ebenso verfallen wie wir ihr und könnte nicht ohne diese Würze in ihrem Leben existieren.

A mortal woman who would dare fall in love with a god.

 

In writing my latest novel, a paranormal scifi-romance, Upon This Rock, I delved into the vast treasure trove of myth, legend and various religions to find inspiration. The premise was relatively simple, a mortal woman, courted and seduced by a god in her nightly dreams, would do anything to meet her lover in person. She would journey to the ends of the Earth for her loving devotion...

 

Perhaps even the Vatican.

 

The idea of gods, angels and demons seducing mortal women is embedded in every mythology across human history. What does that say about women ... that they are such ripe targets for seduction and rape? What does that say about the predatory natures of these gods?

 

 

 

Hindu gods seduced and impregnated mortals, as did Egyptian, Assyrian, Babylonian, Greek and Roman gods. Zues's many lovers (mortal and otherwise) are so well known, the moons of Jupiter are named after them.

 

And what would be the result of such a union?

 

Demigods.

 

 

Demigods are some of the most famous and infamous characters of lore.

 

 

In Judeo-Christian myth, the Old Testament (Torah) has a peculiar line about The Nephilim...

 

"The Nephilim were in the earth in those days, when the sons of God came unto the daughters of men, and they bore children to them; the same were the mighty men of old, the men of renown."

 

Sounds a lot like a Demigod by Greco-Roman definitions.

 

Sadly, the Demigods had it rough. They were mostly human, imbued with special abilities from their divine parentage, but mired in the mess of humanity and forever struggling against the manipulations of gods who used them to further their selfish agendas.

 

Thousands of years have passed since the days of Nephilim and Demigods, the days when gods, angels and demons walked among us, seducing women, and birthing supernaturally gifted half-breeds. 

 

Herein lies the thread of my novel, UPON THIS ROCK.

 

 

 

 

What if the Gods sought to reenter our world, to once more seduce women and regain political and religious favor among the nations of men? Ashley Rowan is lured in by the loving, patient whispers of Mithra. He promises they can be together, if only she accepts his gifts of power and journeys to the gate, to open the way to his world. 

 

Mithra has labored for centuries to reach this moment, the chance for gods to once more walk among the men and women of Earth.

 

Its Fantasy. Scifi. Mythical and legendary, encompassing thousands of years of human history, and the dark manipulations of supernatural creatures from other worlds across the galaxy. They await us at the door, ready to barge through the gateway hidden beneath the Vatican ... UPON THIS ROCK.
