"Wright's inventiveness in bringing to life legends of an earlier apocalypse results in a first rate fantasy that belongs in most libraries." --Library Journal
Set amidst an eerie and distant future, this novel tells the story of Etlantis--the mother city built in the shadows of Mt. Arom--and the possible end of the world. Believing in their right to rule the planet, the people of Etlantis sent ships to hunt the Western Seas. In them were the Nephilim--sons of Angels who had become addicted to human flesh and blood through the curse of Enoch. In the wake of their terror, the earth's human population has neared extinction. Unless the survivors can band together to destroy the monsters that ravaged their home, the end is all but certain. Featuring an imaginative range of characters and concepts, this is a harrowing vision of the line between heaven and earth.
Giants walk the face of the Earth and Nephilim, the progeny of a fallen angel and a human, feed on the blood of humans. From their great city of Etlantis, they aim to rule the world, yet they also war with the Watchers, angels of Light who seek to prevent the world from falling into darkness. Drawn into this war, a human sea captain plays a desperate game to save his son, beginning a conflict that will forever change the planet. This new series launch by the author of Tolteca depicts a struggle between the sons of angels and the men and women who would be known as Angelslayers. Wright's inventiveness in bringing to life legends of an earlier apocalypse results in a first-rate fantasy that belongs in most libraries. Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.
